Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enable wireless transferring and remote camera control from linked mobile devices.

20.4MP Live MOS Sensor and TruePic VIII Image Processor
A high-resolution 20.4MP Live MOS sensor works in conjunction with a TruePic VIII image processor to promote fast shooting performance, a sensitivity range from ISO 200-25600, and versatile 4K video recording capabilities. Ideal for photographing moving subjects, the sensor and processor combination also avails a full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 10 fps for up to 150 consecutive raw files when working with the mechanical shutter. When shooting with the silent electronic shutter, this shooting rate can be boosted up to 30 fps with single-shot AF for up to 23 consecutive raw frames or 10 fps shooting with continuous AF for up to 152 consecutive raw frames. If recording JPEGs, unlimited sequential shooting is possible until the memory card is full.
DCI and UHD 4K Video Recording and OM-Log
The sensor and processor also support recording both DCI (4096 x 2160) and UHD (3840 x 2160) 4K movies. When working in DCI, a true 24.00 fps frame rate is used, along with IPB compression and a 237 Mb/s bit-rate, and UHD 4K is available in frame rates up to 29.97p and a 102 Mb/s bit-rate. Full HD 1080p and HD 720p recording is also supported. Audio recording is possible using the built-in stereo microphone, and an external mic jack is available for improved audio recording quality. Use of an external recording monitor is also possible, via HDMI output, which supports 4:2:2 8-bit color for a greater color correction range.

Additionally, 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, as well as a high-speed Full HD setting with 120 fps frame rate.
121-Point All Cross-Type Phase-Detection AF
An advanced autofocus system combines both 121 on-chip phase-detection points and 121 contrast detection areas for focusing performance that is both quick and accurate. All 121 phase-detection points are cross-type, too, for improved precision in mixed lighting conditions, as well as enhanced subject tracking capabilities. Different focusing modes are available to suit working in various shooting conditions, including 121-point, for general use; Group 25-point, for moving subjects, such as birds and wildlife, and when 121-point is too wide; Group 9-Point, for smaller and more distant subjects; Group 5-Point, for when 9-point is too wide or to suit working with nearer moving subjects; Single, for working with still or small subjects that are not moving; and Small AF, for working with close-up subjects. Custom AF targets can also be set, for working with specific numbers of focus points within the 121-point grid, and an AF limiter function allows you to constrain the focusing distance within a specified range for more responsive performance.
5-Axis Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization
In-body, sensor-shift image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 5.5 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, when paired with select lenses featuring optical image stabilization, shake compensation up to 6.5 stops is possible.
Body Design and Connectivity
  • High-resolution 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder is available for eye-level monitoring, and it offers a 0.67x maximum magnification for clear, distortion-free viewing.
  • Rear 3.0" 1.04m-dot LCD monitor features a vari-angle design to support working from a variety of angles, and it is also a touchscreen for intuitive menu navigation and image playback. Additionally, a Live View Boost mode can be used to optimize the screen's brightness and prioritize the frame rate when working in dark locations.
  • Included BLS-50 rechargeable lithium-ion battery is used to provide approximately 310 shots per charge .
  • In-camera battery charging is supported via the micro-USB port.
  • Single SD memory card slot is UHS-II compatible for fast read/write speeds.
  • Wide accessory compatibility provided with the incorporation of a microphone port, a top hot shoe, micro-USB and micro-HDMI ports, and a 2.5mm port for optional remotes.
  • Rugged splashproof, dustproof, and freezeproof construction incorporates extensive sealing throughout the body design to accommodate working in harsh weather conditions and trying environments.
  • Supersonic Wave Filter and a dust-resistant coating are used to greatly reduce the likelihood of dust reaching the sensor.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth permits wireless image sharing and remote camera control from a linked smartphone or tablet when using the dedicated O.I.Share app for iOS and Android.
Shooting Modes
  • High Res Shot mode offers the equivalent output of a 50MP JPEG image or 80MP raw image by combining eight sequentially recorded frames into a single, larger image. In between each of the exposures, the sensor-shift stabilization mechanism moves slightly in order to acquire more information than in a single exposure and these frames are then composited into a final image with greater resolution and color detail. TruePic VIII processing aids this shooting function by compensating for any subject movement blur and this feature can also be configured to record 25MP images for file size flexibility.
  • Live Composite is a unique long exposure mode that allows you to gradually build up an exposure over time without overexposing key elements within the frame. This mode works to only record newly detected light sources over time, and allows you to watch as an image develops, making it ideally suited for photographing star trails or other moving light sources.
  • Live Bulb and Live Time settings can be used to produce creative long exposure imagery. Live Bulb lets you hold the shutter open for up to one minute and Live Time lets you press the shutter button once to open the shutter and then press again within a minute to end the exposure.
  • Pro Capture Mode is a unique setting that starts recording and buffering full-resolution JPEG or raw images prior to fully depressing the shutter. As soon as you press the shutter button halfway, frames will begin to be recorded, and once you fully press the shutter, the image will be saved in addition to the previous 35 frames. Additionally, you can hold the shutter button in this mode to keep shooting continuously using the silent electronic shutter function.
  • Interval shooting is supported for up to 999 frames with 1 second to 24-hour exposure intervals.
  • Anti-flicker shooting automatically detects the frequency/flicker of artificial lighting and activates the shutter at peak brightness moments to render exposures with consistent exposure and color.
  • In-Camera Focus Stacking will automatically record eight images of a subject while shifting the plane of focus slightly, then composite these exposures into a single frame to exhibit an extended depth of field. Alternatively, Focus Bracketing allows you to record between 3-999 frames with adjustable focus steps in a 1-10 range for manual compositing during post-production. These modes are only available when working with M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro, 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO, 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO, 30mm f/3.5 Macro, 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO, 8mm f/1.8 Fisheye PRO, 300mm f/4 IS PRO, and 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO lenses.
  • Keystone Compensation allows you to correct for convergence when working in live view. Similarly, Fisheye Compensation allows you to use the M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f/1.8 Fisheye PRO lens as a rectilinear wide-angle lens by correcting and eliminating distortion.

Olympus E-M5 Mark III Reviews

Big Step Up From Olympus OM-D E-10 Mark III

By Brian
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-02

I was disappointed when my Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III quit but was elated when I read the reviews on the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Mirrorless Camera. This camera is the same size as my old camera with upgrades like; Waterproof, Better Battery compartment cover, separate SD card storage, and a simplified Menu for all the bells and whistles included in this camera.

Great little camera!

I bought this camera to compliment and back up my OM-D E-M1 Mark III. It has most of the features of the E-M1 in an even smaller and lighter body. It's perfect for landscape, nature, travel and street photography and I've found that I have been leaving my 12-45mm f4 pro (24-90mm full frame equiv.) on it almost all the time, while my E-M1 has the 40-150mm f4 pro (80-300mm FF equiv.) parked on it. Very convenient! These 2 cameras have replaced 2 much bigger Canon DSLR's and a smaller Canon mirrorless. I haven't given up anything in terms of image quality, only size and weight. Having more fun with my photography than I've had in years!

Travel camera

I have gotten tired of lugging around my DSLR on trips. To reduce size and weight, decided to go with Micro 4/3. I settled on the E-M5 Mark III and have no regrets. The body is smaller and lighter than my Nikon DX's. The real savings is in the lenses, which are much smaller. Both the body and the lens are water sealed and the build feels really solid. I opted for the 14-150 mm II so I could carry just one all purpose lens. So far it is doing exactly what I wanted. Image quality is similar to my Nikons. It has a full set of controls and programable functions. Menus take a little getting used to. I am still exploring some of the advanced functions, but so far I have found it to be a great travel camera, perfect for my needs.

Offering virtually the same controls and performance of the older ( but supposedly superior) OM-D E-M1 Mark ii that I also own. The only thing that prevents it from getting 5 stars is its small size which may be problematic for people with large hands

It's a great simple camera. Light weight, good ergonomics for a small camera, simple to change settings. Works best for birds and wildlife with Panasonic long lenses. Handy with the 12-45 and 75mm for general photography.

So I have mostly been shooting film my career but with my lifestyle it has become too cumbersome to shoot film all the live long day. However new Mirrorless cameras are too expensive and DSLRs too bulky for my tastes. Enter Olympus. I had known about Olympus and their high quality, compact film cameras, but had never thought about their digital line. This camera may have eh ish specs on paper due to it's M43 sensor and all but don't let that fool you. This camera is any highly mobile photographer's dream. Ultra-Sharp budget lens options. The EXACT size of my old OMF/OM-30 film SLR and just a joy to use with its tactile controls. The menus and modes took a little getting used to; but honestly it took maybe a day? Anyway This thing is weather sealed with a weather-sealed PRO line lens in the kit. At the price I paid (1300USD) it was an absolute steal. And I haven't even gotten into the 4K video yet with my use case.

Only one full day of shooting so far, but quite pleased. Autofocus, image quality, stabilization, exposure, jpeg color balance, all excellent. What's not to like?

Will the Olympus EM5-III IBIS work in conjunction with Panasonic's 14-140 zoom OIS? If not, does the OIS in the Panasonic lens need to be turned off?
