Olympus is building a powerful line of Micro Four Thirds cameras with its OM-D series. The OM-D E-M10 is the latest camera added to the line, featuring the same body-style as the E-M1 and E-M5 in a more compact and affordable offering.
The Olympus OM-D E-M10 features a 16MP sensor with a sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600 and sensor-based 3-axis image stabilization, which is derived from the more powerful 5-axis stabilization found on the E-M1 and E-M5. The camera can capture up to 8fps, but only 3.5fps with continuous AF in tracking mode. The buffer can process up to 20 RAW frames before capture times slow down and and unlimited number of JPEGs.
The E-M10 also features a 1.44M-dot EVF with a 120fps refresh rate, 100% field of view and 1.15x magnification. Additionally, the camera sports a 3-inch tilting, touchscreen display.
The E-M10 includes built-in WiFi that allows users to scan a QR code to connect with a mobile device for faster setup. The connectivity allows you to control camera functions and share images from mobile devices.
Alongside the E-M10, Olympus also unveiled a pair of new Micro Four Thirds lenses – a pancake 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ lens with electric zoom and a 25mm f/1.8, which becomes Olympus’ “fast-fifty. The lenses are priced at $349.99 and $399.99, respectively.
The Olympus OM-D E-M10 retails for $699.99 for the body only and $799.99 with the 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R lens. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
