Olympus E-M1 Mark III Overview

By B&H Photo's

A well-rounded kit with long reach, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III Mirrorless Camera with 40-150mm Lens Kit from B&H bundles the ultra-fast mirrorless camera body with the versatile 80-300mm-equivalent telephoto zoom lens.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III Mirrorless Camera

A camera designed with speed, versatility, and portability in mind, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III is a well-rounded Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera suitable for a variety of stills and video needs. Featuring a 20.4MP Live MOS sensor and an updated TruePic IX image processor, the camera is characterized by its quick continuous shooting, up to 60 fps with an electronic shutter and 15 fps with a mechanical shutter, as well as DCI and UHD 4K video recording. The sensor and processor also offer a sensitivity range up to ISO 25600 while a sophisticated 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization system compensates for up to 7.5 stops of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Beyond imaging, the sensor's design also incorporates 121 on-chip phase-detection points, all of which are cross-type, along with 121 contrast-detection areas for fast and precise focusing and subject tracking performance.

In regard to the E-M1 III's physical design, it features a durable magnesium alloy body along with extensive weather-sealing to support working in harsh climates. Both a 2.36m-dot, 0.74x-magnification electronic viewfinder and 3.0" 1.037m-dot vari-angle LCD touchscreen are featured, too, for intuitive control and working from a variety of angles. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth further expand sharing and remote shooting capabilities, and dual SD card slots afford greater file saving flexibility.

20.4MP Live MOS Sensor and TruePic IX Image Processor
A high-resolution 20.4MP Live MOS sensor and updated TruePic IX image processor work in concert to provide notably fast shooting performance, expanded sensitivity range up to ISO 25600, and versatile 4K video recording capabilities. Ideal for sports and wildlife shooting, the sensor and processor combination avail a full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 15 fps for up to 101 consecutive raw files when working with the mechanical shutter. When shooting with the silent electronic shutter, this shooting rate can be boosted up to 60 fps with single-shot AF for up to 50 consecutive raw frames or 18 fps shooting with continuous AF for up to 90 consecutive raw frames.
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 30p 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 both an external mic jack and headphone jack are available for improved audio recording and monitoring.

Benefitting recording in varying light conditions, an integrated OM-Log setting can be used to extend the effective dynamic range and afford a greater range of control during post-production color grading when used with the accompanying LUT file. 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. Additionally, continuous autofocus sensitivity can be set, to benefit its use while recording video, within five levels for more pleasing focus movements.

Suiting portraiture, Face Priority and Eye Priority AF are also available to prioritize the face and eyes of your subject. And for working in low-light conditions, focusing sensitivity is available down to -3.5 EV, and a dedicated Starry Sky AF mode can be used for focusing on stars and other nighttime sky subjects. Converse to the autofocus capabilities, manual focus users are also benefitted by live view magnification and focus peaking controls for greater accuracy.
5-Axis Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization
In-body, sensor-shift image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 7 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 7.5 stops is possible.
Body Design and Connectivity
  • High-resolution 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder is available for eye-level monitoring, and it offers a high 0.74x maximum magnification for clear, distortion-free viewing.
  • Rear 3.0" 1.037m-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, an LV Boost mode can be used to optimize the screen's brightness and prioritize the frame rate when working in dark locations.
  • Included BLH-1 rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides approximately 420 shots per charge with normal settings or up to an impressive 900 shots per charge with the quick sleep mode activated.
  • The USB Type-C port can be used for quick in-camera battery charging.
  • 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.
  • Dual SD memory card slots offer improved flexibility for image storage, allowing you to segregate raw and JPEG files to different cards, save duplicate files to both cards, or simply double your storage space with overflow recording. Additionally, one of the card slots is UHS-II compatible for faster read/write speeds when used with a compatible UHS-II card.
  • Wide accessory compatibility provided with the incorporation of 3.5mm headphone and microphone ports, a PC sync flash terminal and top hot shoe, USB Type-C and micro-HDMI ports, and a 2.5mm port for optional remotes.
  • Rugged splash, dust, and freezeproof construction incorporates extensive sealing throughout the magnesium alloy body to accommodate working in harsh weather conditions and trying environments, even when a cable, microphone, or a set of headphones are attached.
  • Supersonic Wave Filter and a dust-resistant coating are used to greatly reduce the likelihood of dust reaching the sensor.
  • Durable shutter unit is rated to perform for over 400,000 actuations.
Shooting Modes
  • Tripod High Res Shot mode offers the equivalent output of an 80MP 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. The TruePic IX processor aids this process by compensating for any subject movement blur and this feature can also be configured to record 50MP or 25MP images for file size flexibility.
  • Handheld High Res Shot mode, like the Tripod mode, produces a 50MP JPEG or raw file by compositing sequentially recorded files into a single image. The Handheld High Res Shot mode differs from the Tripod mode by recording 16 independent frames, opposed to eight, and the slight movement caused by hand-holding provides the range of movement needed to produce the larger final image.
  • Simulating the effects of a neutral density filter, Live ND results in blurred subject movement by compositing exposures to replicate the look of a single image taken at a slower shutter speed. Particularly suitable for photographing moving water, five modes are available—ND2, ND4, ND8, ND16, and ND32—to vary how movement is portrayed.
  • 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 9999 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, 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO, and 12-45mm f/4 PRO lenses, as well as the M.Zuiko Digital MC-14 1.4x and MC-20 2.0x Teleconverters.
  • 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-M1 Mark III Reviews

Fantastic camera!

By Robert
Rated 5 out of 5

I am not a pro BUT an avid photo guy since the 70s. I rarily do video so my comments are limited to the stills capability. I primarily use my camera system for travel/hiking trips - so in addition to image quality, my priority is size/weight/portability of the full system. I had adopted the MFT system when I ditched my old Nikon D70s DSLR for a OMD EM5-ii around 2013. In 2021 I decided I wanted to upgrade. Since the OMD M1 mkiii was $1899 at the time I also was trying to decide if I should go to FF. My budget was bodies in the $2000 range - Sony A7iii and Z6 ended up being the FF contenders (both 24 Mp imagers). After about 4 months of trying the various camera and lens combos and hundreds of real-life side-by-side image tests and print tests, I decided on sticking with the MFT format. I saw small differences (mainly in shadow detail at higher ISO) but in many shots the differences just did not matter when displayed at 100% (vs. pixel peeping at 400%) and were actually NOT visible in the final ink jet prints at 300 and 600 dpi. Again I am just saying for me and the kind of images I do, I did not see a noticable difference between FF 24Mp and MFT 20Mp images for the kind of photography I do. Mileage will vary on teh indivudal and the application. The GOOD: At a very high level, this camera allows you to be creative and try out a lot of image ideas - the controls and buttons are placed logically (at least for me) and the ability to reassign button function makes the camera your own. Color and image detail are awesome and 20 Mpixel is fine for me. The body fits in the hand very comfortably and is well-balanced with all the MFT lenses I own from tiny primes to bigger fast zooms. The IBIS is second to none - I never though this would be a thing for me, until I started realizing that I could take hand-held shots at a couple seconds and they were razor sharp. Weather sealing - this is not BS. On a trip to the desert I was taking some sunset photos and the fines that were blowing took out one of my non-weather sealed Oly cameras (EPL5 - IBIS stopped working) and a friend's SONY had the mechanical shutter go out. The OMD EM1 iii worked right through the sand storm. In Iceland similar experince with others complaining of camera fails near waterfalls - this OMD M1 mkiii worked without a hitch despite a lot fo water and is still working a year later. CONS: A lot of folks complain about the menus - I won't argue exept to say that once you figure them out they aren't really harder than other systems, just a bit quirky. HOWEVER Oly allows you to set up custom menu screens bypass the standard arrangement so you can have only those features you want in a single screen access and you can create multiple tabbed menus. Last words: There is no perfect camera and ultimately it is a personal choice based on a lot of factors. I suggest people TRY an oly and of course other brands and pick the camera that works for them. In the MFT arena I think the OMD M1 mkiii has the most bang for the buck - between its unbeaten image stabilization system that allows good shots with crazy low shutter speeds, a natural way of working (button placement and customization), tons of mature and stable computational tricks under the hood (50m and 80mpixel shift capability, electronic ND filters, focus and exposure stacking, live view so you can build up exposures in real time and see the result developing, a great ouit-of-camera JPEG with no image twiddling, un-rivalled camera customization as well as a huge selection of high-quality lenses. The OMD M1 iii offers the ability to capture very high quality images, in a very lean and robust weather-sealed travel kit that gives super high quality images in many situations where other systems would fail.

I received this as a gift after waffling back-and-forth about whether or not to spring for it. I'm thrilled with it. It is feature-rich, and extremely comfortable in my small hands. I like that it has a grip so that I don't have to purchase the separate grip like I had on the OMD-EM5. Tip for new buyers, it has an extremely deep menu structure, and so many features that you really do need to download the user manual. The battery life is much over that of my previous camera. I couldn't be happier.

I switched from Nikon to Olympus and I'm loving it! This is an amazing camera! It's lightweight and feels great in my hands! There are so many added features to this camera, like In-Camera Focus Stacking, Pro Capture, Starry Sky AF, and Handheld High Res. I use the articulating screen all of the time. It really makes it easy to be creative when I am shooting. The touchscreen and menu are super user-friendly! Wildlife and landscapes are my main focus, and this camera is fast and sharp! I use the silent mode most of the time. Portraits are as clean and crisp as well. This is the camera that's going to be in my hands for a long time!

In the 80's I had a Canon F1 and dreamed of a Leica R3 and Leica optics unattainable in price. a well-known photographer from Prentice Hall suggested that he pay attention to Olympus because their lenses, according to him, were of equivalent quality. Years later I bought the Olympus OM4T with 5 fixed lenses 21-2.0, 28-2.0, 50-1.4, 100-2.0 and 90 macro 2.0, a camera that had incredible 7-point multispot reading, the flash synchronized at all speeds, the body in titanium a small body with dreamlike optics. conclusion I sold the Canon F1 and all its optics. Then I decided to enter the world of autofocus, I bought the Canon EOS 1N, I found myself using the Olympus again despite the Canon's autofocus, conclusion, I sold the Canon and continued with the Olympus. I joined the digital era and bought the Canon 5D and then Mark ll with 6 lenses, I thought of trying the Olympus OMD EM1, again I found myself using the Olympus and staying at home with the Canon. I switched to the Olympus OMD EM1 mark ll, and bought the Sony 7 All, again I was using the Olympus. Now I bought this model, and decided for now not to buy another brand. I am not going to go into technical details, which are abundant everywhere. For some strange reason, or not so strange, I always go back to Olympus and believe me they always try to afford another brand, and even force me to have and use another brand of camera. But naturally and unintentionally, I return to photograph with Olympus, and always the quality of its incredible optics, its comfort, its quality, those great details that you notice when you use and enjoy them and that reading a technical sheet cannot really be perceived . It is incorporated into your body, into your hands and you only think about the photographic shot that is in front of you or what you are going to look for. And despite the passing of the years I continue to experience the same thing, my mind, my eye, the scene and the photographic camera of this manufacturer that is incorporated as a natural extension of the body almost without realizing it and without perceiving it, but when it is not you have with you the longing My colleagues are surprised that I don't have a full frame and I don't understand why they don't have an Olympus. The only exception is that for a certain photograph I have to resort to my Hasselblad H6X, but that's another story.

Love it!

This camera is great! I've only scratched the surface of all the features. Much prefer the ergonomics of this camera over the Sony A6000 that it's replacing. The colors are amazing. Focus is fast with the 12-40 Pro lens and it all makes for a good carry around kit. I might even sell my Nikon D750 and lenses.

This was an upgrade from my m5-mark III, which I still have. I was looking at the OM1 but this had all the features I was looking for, weighed less, and with sale price and trade in for my m5-II, cost a lot less. The built-in ND, hand held, is really a treat. It's one thing to have the manufacturer say it, it's quite another to experience it for yourself. Is it beefier than my m5 III, yes, but it's not terrible. Love the two card slots and longer battery life. Haven't tried the starry sky yet. I like the bigger grip. Well done Olympus as a last Hurrah before becoming OM!

Why the 29 minute video recording limit ?

Why the 29 minute video recording limit ?
Asked by: Edgardo
With the exception of a few models across the industry (the number of which is growing quite quickly), most digital cameras have a 29 min and 59 second limit on video recording. The reason for this is based on laws around digital cameras and camcorders and imposed on the manufacturers unless circumvented by them.

The E-M1 Mark III will be compatible with a number of different flashes. Not including a flash, which could bring up the price of the camera, gives the customer the option of choosing a different flash if they prefer.

Is the EVF any improvement over the EVF on the Mark II? I understand it's an OLED versus an LCD, but am wondering if that translates into a more OVF-like (i.e., high dynamic range) experience.
Asked by: Barry
Olympus folks made a printing error in stating the EVF was OLED. They have since corrected that. The EVF in both the EM1 MKII and the EM1 MKIII are the same.

The EM1 iii, is decent in low light but does not compare to the D500. The focus speed and low light capabilities of the D500 are far superior.
