The compact, all-metal 16-Megapixel Olympus OM-D EM-10 looks and feels like a DSLR. It features fine image quality, classic OM-D styling, super-fast focusing speed, TruePic VII image processor, built-in WiFi, a large, high-speed electronic viewfinder, 1.440.000-dot, 3-inch tiltable LCD, 3-axis image stabilisation.
Classic OM-D ergonomic design
The E-M10 is housed in a bold, all-metal super-compact body that delivers the authentic aesthetic and robust finish of a top-of-the-range camera. Even with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 lens attached, the E-M10 only measures 63.9mm from the viewfinder to the rim of the lens.
The Olympus E-M10 features the same 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor as in the OM-D E-M5. Combined with the next-generation TruePic VII processor, high quality images are produced.
It incorporates Fine Detail II Technology that adapts processing to the characteristics of individual lenses and aperture settings. Another strength is a moiré removal feature that is specially suited to digital cameras that don’t incorporate a low-pass filter.
E-M10 image quality also benefits from an in-body 3-axis image stabilisation system derived from the world-first 5-axis system in the E-M5 and E-M1. The 3-axis version effectively counteracts yaw, roll and pitch with both still shots and HD movies, irrespective of the lens attached to the camera and even in poor lighting conditions or using an exposure of 1/15 of a second or less.
the large, high-speed, 1,440,000-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF) helps accurately frame shots and assess light in challenging conditions. Compared to typical viewfinders in this camera class, the display is considerably larger. Thanks to Adaptive Brightness Technology (another E-M1 feature), it reproduces both dark and bright scenes as they are perceived by the naked eye. Equivalent rival systems typically overcompensate for extreme lighting situations, making it virtually impossible to accurately assess scene and settings.
You can use the Creative Control feature to quickly and effectively adjust composition, focus, tone and colour in the viewfinder and check the effect of changes on-screen prior to taking the shot. Time lag is not a problem with this EVF, which quickly reproduces fast-moving scenes. In combination with FAST AF and high-speed sequential shooting, this makes the E-M10 well suited to shooting sport, animals and other fleeting subjects.
FAST AF is Olympus’ fastest ever AF system and uses 81 target areas that cover the whole image. It also encompasses the Small AF Target and Super Spot AF modes that make it possible to zoom in and focus accurately on minute sections of the frame. Complementing FAST AF, the E-M10 is capable of sequential shooting at 8fps,
In addition to the pop-up flash, the E-M10 comes with built-in WiFi, so it can communicate directly with compatible smartphones and send selected images directly to websites and social media. Alternatively, the phone can be used as a remote control to avoid accidentally nudging the camera during long exposures. After pairing via a QR code, it mirrors the Live View LCD, allowing the owner to focus and release the shutter remotely via WiFi (in P, A, S, M and Art Filter modes). In conjunction with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 lens, compatible smartphones can also be used to zoom in and out remotely.
