The Olympus OM-D E-M10 offers an affordable entry into interchangeable lens cameras and the third installment to the series offers a nice feature upgrade with 4K video, 16 megapixel images and a five-axis stabilization system. The $649 body-only or $800 with a kit lens Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III offers a range of features for an entry-level price.
The E-M10 III sports a 16 megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor. That also allows the camera to shoot 4K video at 30 fps, with record times up to about 30 minutes. If Olympus' track record is any indication, the E-M10 III should have solid images compared to other cameras with a similar price point.
A built-in five-axis stabilization system helps keep videos steady while also offering a boost for low light images. The camera can shoot still frames as quick as 8.6 fps, but that's with the focus fixed on the first shot. With continuous autofocus, the camera's a bit slower at 4.8 fps. The autofocus system sees a step up from the previous model with 121 autofocus points for enhanced flexibility and accuracy.
The camera uses a tilting touchscreen at the back or an electronic viewfinder to frame the shots. Wi-Fi is also built in. Weighing in at less than a pound for the body, the camera is also ideal for travel.
The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is an affordable, easy-to use camera that's ideal for beginners and enthusiasts. Adding 4K video and an expanded autofocus system, the update to the series is a nice change to see.
