Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III



Never stop the journey with the latest addition to the Olympus OM-D camera line-up




14-42Sure to become a modern classic, Olympus has carefully designed the Olympus E-M10 Mark III to be the perfect travel companion. Light-weight and easy to use, this camera has been created with intuitive controls to help photographers take stunning, crisp images and smooth videos from the moment they pick up the camera.
The Olympus E-M10 Mark III is available in silver or black and goes on sale by mid September 2017. This interchangeable lens camera is available as a body only or a lens kit.


Amazing results in any shooting situation

They say that excitement comes from discovering new things and thanks to the combination of the latest TruePic Vlll image processor, also used in the acclaimed flagship OM-D E-M1 Mark II, and Olympus’ class leading 5-axis Image Stabilisation (IS), photographers can enjoy taking beautiful blur-free images that they never thought possible. This clever technology gives pin-sharp results in virtually any shooting situation without using a tripod, even night scenes*.
Making movies to capture the sights and sounds of new places truly brings memories to life, although sometimes the glory of the detail in 4K movies can be lost to shakes and blur. Olympus has taken that worry away from photographers new to movie making, because the E-M10 Mark III’s high-performance image stabilisation is built into the camera body and compensates for camera shake with any lens in any scene, even hand held!

The E-M10 Mark lll is equipped with incredible new upgrades and technology, cleverly brought together to allow photographers to develop as they use their camera more and start to take creative control. Even first time interchangeable lens camera users can shoot with ease due to the four camera assist shooting modes:

Scene (SCN) mode has been upgraded and will help photographers to take control of the results they want by choosing one of six themes with predefined settings.

The Advanced Photo (AP) mode has been added so that photographers can fine tune their images and enjoy incredible shooting methods such as Live Composite and Multiple Exposure without having to access the menu structure.

Never stop the journey

Busy times with friends and family usually means there’s lots going on. But often taking a quick snap is disappointing – the action is blurred and the moment is missed!

Photographers will be amazed at the results they can achieve with Olympus’ high-speed Auto Focus (AF) system. By using the E-M10 Mark III’s high-speed Touch AF, they can capture the exact moment with a simple touch on the LCD screen, freezing the action with jaw-dropping clarity.

The latest OM-D model now features 121 contrast AF points thanks to the improved processing performance of the TruePic Vlll. With 121 AF points covering most of the image area you can focus anywhere on the screen. The Continuous AF has a tracking ability to detect the subject movement, and photographers will find the Face Priority AF and Eye Detection AF really useful to ensure proper exposure and sharp focus automatically when shooting portraits.

Easy sharing with Wi-Fi

Photographers can stay connected while they are out and about, with the E-M10 Mark lll’s built-in Wi-Fi function. It’s so easy to share beautiful images and movie clips with friends, using the Olympus Image Share (OI.Share) smartphone app, without the use of a computer. Once connected to the app, photographers can use their smartphone or tablet to remotely control the shutter release, and many more functions such as adding GPS data to their photos.
