Olympus E-M10 Mark III Overview

  • 1Description

Compact and lightweight, the black OM-D E-M10 Mark III from Olympus takes its place as an extremely capable entry-level option for shooters looking to pick up an SLR-styled mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera. This iteration incorporates a 16.1MP Four Thirds Live MOS sensor and the Dual Quad-Core TruePic VIII Image Processor, enabling a variety of fast and powerful functions, including video recording at up to UHD 4K. The camera does retain its intuitive and rugged construction, benefitting from many physical controls as well as a 3.0" tilting touchscreen LCD and a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder with an improved 1.23x magnification. Additionally, various other functions have been implemented to make shooting more fun, such as 15 Art Filters and a Clips Video Mode that lets you quickly make videos in camera.

The E-M10 Mark III features many capabilities to improve overall image quality. The most significant of these is the inclusion of a robust in-body 5-axis image stabilization system that can compensate for about 4 stops of shutter speed. Along with this, an upgraded 121-point contrast-detect AF system will help you lock on, track, and capture tack-sharp photos of your subjects. Speed has been given a boost as well with up to 8.6 fps continuous shooting and a sensitivity range of up to ISO 25600. An electronic shutter function is present in the Mark III for even faster shutter speeds and silent shooting. Beyond all this, the camera of course features built-in Wi-Fi, this time with a QR Code function for even faster setup.

16.1MP Live MOS Sensor & TruePic VIII Image Processor
In order to create high-resolution imagery, the OM-D E-M10 Mark III is blessed with a Four Thirds 16.1MP Live MOS Sensor and the Dual Quad-Core TruePic VIII Image Processor, a combination designed to maximize speed and quality. It helps users create sharp photos and video in a wide range of situations using sensitivities ranging from ISO 200-25600, and which can be extended to ISO 100-25600. It also provides an electronic shutter function for faster shutter speeds and completely silent operation and can record uncompressed 12-bit raw image files.
UHD 4K Video Recording
The added processing power of the TruePic VIII provides the E-M10 Mark III with greater video capabilities in addition to stills, this time permitting the creation of high-resolution UHD 4K video at up to 30p. Users can enjoy a high bit rate of 102 Mbps for crisp, detailed imagery and there are options for both NTSC and PAL frame rates. Full HD and HD recording features increased speed with options in Full HD for up to 60p and high-speed HD 720p at up to 120 fps.

In addition to video recording, a Time-lapse Movie mode is also available for recording up to 4K UHD resolution with a 5 fps shooting rate to highlight subject changes or movement over a longer period of time. Full HD and HD time-lapse settings are available, too. Also, there is a Clips Video Mode present for in-camera video creation, including the ability to use audio transferred to your SD card.
In-Body 5-Axis Image Stabilization
In-body, sensor-shift image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 4 stops with any lens in use and compensates for camera movements that become especially noticeable when working with telephoto shots, macro imagery, and long exposures. Furthermore, this unique image stabilization system works across five axes to compensate for vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, horizontal shift, vertical shift, and rolling camera shake movement. This range of detected movements serves to benefit traditional still image shooting as well as movie recording and working with moving subjects more effectively. Additionally, image stabilization can also be used when framing shots, for more accurate compositions, by half-pressing the shutter button.
121-Point Contrast-Detect AF System and 8.5 fps Shooting
Lock on and track subject matter quickly and effectively in order to guarantee tack-sharp imagery by using the E-M10 Mark III's upgraded 121-point contrast-detect high-speed imager AF system. Users can also access Touch AF functions via the rear LCD and will benefit from excellent tracking performance. Also, the E-M10 III can shoot at speeds of up to 8.5 fps with the ability to record burst of up to 22 raw frames or 36 JPEGs. A low-speed 4.8 fps setting is available with no limit to the buffer.

    Olympus E-M10 Mark III Reviews

    OM-D E-M10 Mark III Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only, Black) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Streamlined Starter Camera I bought the 3 as a second camera, my other camera is a Pen f with more than enough features, too many, really. I agree with the other reviewer as far as what Olympus has subtracted from this model vs. the em10 2. However, the 3 is a step up in processor speed - Tru Pic 8 vs 7. I think it even focuses slightly faster than the Pen f because of it. It also has 4K video and a better grip. For what it is, those features are enough for me as a street, or travel camera with the 17 f1.8 permanently installed. Sometimes I just don’t feel the need to program or reprogram everything just cause it’s available. Remember when everything was determined by f-stop, shutter speed, and film ISO. You can keep it simple too, at least with the EM10 Mark 3.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Save money buy the Olympus EM10 MK2 instead of the EM10 MK3. Save money buy the Olympus EM10 MK2 instead of the EM10 MK3. Here are the reasons why: 1. They changed the ports and there's no remote shutter cable connector. 2. They took away a lot of programmability on the function buttons. 3. They took away the programmability on the direction pad. 4. One less programmable function button. 5. They took away the Myset preset option. 6. They also eliminated the wireless RC flash function. As far as I can tell the only positive changes are: 1. An improved processor which makes negligible improvement in photo quality. 2. 4k video capability. 3. An additional art filer. 4. Changes in the grip and aesthetics. Understand that I've been and Olympus fan and user since 1980 but I feel like they let us down this time. I have both of these cameras and absolutely LOVE my EM10 MK2, but I will be returning the MK3. I believe the things they've taken away outweigh the improvements. If you have remote cables and wireless shutter releases from other Olympus cameras you cannot use them with the EM10 MK3 as there is no port for them. It appears the only way to remotely trigger the camera is with the OL Share app on a smartphone, pretty lame in my opinion. I know they say this is a beginner level step up camera, and I don't consider myself a beginner in photography after 37 years of taking photos, but this is way too limited and too Fisher Price on some of the menus for my liking. In the ads they proudly tout the improvements but neglect to mentions the things that are no longer there. Even beginners might like to have a camera that can grow with them instead of one they'll quickly grow out of. I hope this honest review will help someone with their purchasing choice. You cannot go wrong with the EM10 MK2 and it's a great camera and learning tool beginner or not and $150 cheaper!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Moving from OMD-10 Mark 1 to OMD-10 Mark 3 I loved the old model, so that skipping a generation was easy. The new camera improves many aspects of the old camera. Its feels more solid and premium. But it also failed to excite me. In this review I would like to highlight the things that I DON'T like in the new camera body (compared to OMD 10 Mark 1): The battery life is shorter. As a result, I need to charge the battery once a day - very annoying It's heavier and bigger. Not something that you can actually see - But it feels more bulky than before The color rendering is different - I find myself using a different filter effect as before The auto ISO is unpredictable. As a result, I need to set the ISO manually - very?annoying for my photography style

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great little camera I use this camera mostly for family, travel? and other personal activities with the 14 - 42 RII lens and it's just perfect, but I do wish it had a wired remote connection.? Video is much improved over the em-5 which I use for commercial work with the 12-40 pro lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel & street camera Having not owned a Micro Four Thirds camera in over 5 years -- I sold my E-P2 and GX1 for a Nikon D7000 -- I'm coming back to this system with fresh eyes and without the baggage of being fully invested in what came before. I needed a travel camera that still allowed for interchangeable lenses, and I also wanted an EVF. This is the camera I landed on. Honestly, despite what a previous reviewer has written, it doesn't matter much what this camera is "missing" when compared against the Mark II. Most decent wireless flash systems can be used with any camera; I'd prefer using my phone as a remote control instead of a proprietary hardwired device; and I'm actually glad this camera doesn't have many programmable buttons. I need access to shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and, occasionally, white balance and AF point selection. What I don't need is to waste time assigning function buttons and fumbling with a camera to find those functions before a photo opportunity is gone. Within a few minutes of pulling this camera out of the box, I was able to start taking photos. Image quality in JPEG and raw formats is pretty good. I like Olympus' default color rendering, which means I spend less time fussing around in Lightroom. Even though this camera doesn't feature the best image stabilization possible, it's still more than capable of allowing me to take handheld shots at 0.5 sec. without shake-induced blur. Overall handling is great, though I do occasionally mash the playback button with my palm if I hold the camera in an awkward portrait position. My nitpicks: AF in low light isn't the best, and overall AF speed is lens dependent (42.5mm f/1.7 is fast; 20mm f/1.7, not so much). Don't buy this camera for action or sports, for you will be disappointed. The live preview of exposure doesn't dim or brighten after +/- 3EV, which is baffling -- I'd like to know if my photo is going to be completely blown, honestly. Battery life isn't the best, and I wish it could be powered over USB. If you're new to Micro Four Thirds, this is a nice camera. If you're a veteran shooter who knows how to expose an image with the bare minimum settings and consider everything beyond that as cake icing, this is a nice camera. If you're hung up on features and are disappointed by anything less than The Greatest Camera Ever, look elsewhere, and good luck with that search.
