Main Features Details
1. Premium ultra-slim stylish body
Having an interchangeable lens camera packed into an ultra-slim compact and light-weight body makes the OLYMPUS OM-D E-M10 an appealing photographic tool. When the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ world's slimmest2 standard zoom lens is attached (which launches at the same time), the thickness is a mere approx. 64mm, making this nearly as slim and compact as an ultra-compact DSLR body. Despite this ultra-slim body, OLYMPUS OM-D E-M10 features two dials for excellent controls, giving it exceptional operability comparable to high-end models. In addition to the solid feel of two metal dials, the grip is designed to fit perfectly in your hands, and the viewfinder located on the optical axis makes this camera easy to hold, look through and provides intuitive controls. When looking at the OLYMPUS OM-D E-M10, the sparkle of the precision-machined parts exudes through the metal body, highlighting the feel of both strength and sharpness, and delivers a premium feel that goes beyond any class of camera. This beautiful camera will make you want to take it with you everywhere, bringing you joy and providing inspiration to capture any scene perfectly and beautifully
2. Excellent image quality due to traditional optical and advanced image processing technology
The ZUIKO lens is born out of optical technology cultivated over Olympus' long and rich history. The 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor brings out the best in ZUIKO depictive power, rich tonal reproductions as well as high-sensitivity performance. Fused with the TruePic VII image processor inherited from the flagship model OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1, the OLYMPUS OM-D E-M10 achieves the best image quality in the DSLR class
3. Large. bright Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) offers quick response time and clear visibility
This ultra-compact model is equipped with a built-in high-powered and high-resolution Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) taken from the high-end OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5, a feat that is not possible on base models. This large and clearly visible viewfinder features a magnification rate of approximately 1.15x, viewfinder coverage of approximately 100%, and provides powerful support when photographing moving subjects with its OM-D series quick response. The viewfinder is also equipped with Cat's Eye Control used on the flagship OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 EVF, providing a natural view in the viewfinder. Powerful image stabilisation makes accurate focusing possible, and when coupled with numerous features such as exposure compensation, the ability to check lighting and colour balance effects in the EVF, it is now possible to shoot using the EVF to obtain the exact results you have in mind.
4. 3-axis VCM in-body image stabilisation mechanism brings out the very best in every lens
The OLYMPUS OM-D E-M10 is equipped with the same VCM image stabilisation mechanism as on the flagship model OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1. With the newly developed 3-axis VCM image stabilisation mechanism designed to be compact and lightweight, image stabilisation is performed in three axes; horizontal and vertical angular blur, and optical rotational blur that cannot be corrected for with in-lens image stabilisation. With 3.5 steps4 of stabilisation effects, the viewfinder image is stabilised and excellent stabilisation performance is realised for all lenses.
5. 81-point FAST AF and 8 fps (TBD) max. high-speed sequential shooting to capture the moment
This model is equipped with 81-point FAST AF and 8 fps high-speed sequential shooting that rivals the performance of the OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 flagship model. Target AF is able to instantly focus on any subject within the area no matter how small, accurately covering a wide area of the screen. Super Spot AF enables the ultimate in pinpoint AF, Eye-detection AF automatically focuses on eyes for portrait photography, and the FAST AF system is even more advanced than ever for quick AF that exceeds Phase detection AF.
