Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III review

 

The E-M10 Mark III offers casual shooters a modern camera with a classic design.

Decent 16MP images ; Five-axis internal stabilization ; Compact, lightweight ; Built-in EVF

Same sensor as E-M10 Mark II ; Autofocus isn’t great for moving subjects ; Image quality lags behind APS-C peers

Call us underwhelmed. The Mark III is a good camera for stills, but suffers when it comes to fast-moving action and video, mainly due to less-than-stellar autofocus performance. The contrast detect system simply can’t keep up with the competition. That...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III

 

Is this the perfect step up for smartphone shooters?. Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III.

Attractive retro design ; Compact body ; Excellent JPEG image quality with lovely colour rendition ; Superb in-body image stabilisation works with every lens ; Fast, accurate autofocus with static subjects

Over-simplified in-camera raw conversion ; Less reliable autofocus with moving subjects ; Sensor dated compared to APS-C competitors

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is simple to use for first-time camera buyers while being capable enough for enthusiasts – and features lots of clever features that you won’t find anywhere else. This makes it one of the best cameras on the market at...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III

 

The mirrorless Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III camera doesn't offer a lot of tech upgrades, instead focusing on an easier photography experience.

Compact, solid design. Built-in EVF and flash. Tilting touch LCD. 8.8fps burst shooting. In-body stabilization. Raw and JPG capture. In-camera art filters. Wi-Fi.

16MP sensor seems dated. Tracking focus slows speed to 4fps. 4K video not easily accessible. No Bluetooth or NFC.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III doesn't have a lot of head-turning new features—the addition of 4K video is the biggest upgrade. Other changes—improved ergonomics, faster processing and focus, and better results when shooting in automatic mode—are...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III Review

 

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 III is a gentle refresh of its predecessor. It's still a 16MP Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera, still keenly priced and still devastatingly pretty. A revision of the user interface to make it more beginner friendly and the...

The OM-D E-M10 III isn't a big update in terms of specs, but Olympus has made some pretty significant attempts to make it easier to make full use of its capabilities. We liked its predecessor, and we think the updates to the interface, the addition of...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 III Shooting Experience

 

We've had a production spec Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III for several weeks now. And, as we prepare our review, Carey Rose has been seeing what it's like to kick back, enjoy the summer and let the camera's revamped Auto mode do the heavy lifting.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III

 

Let's be honest. It's intimidating to step up from a point-and-shoot smartphone or digicam to an interchangeable lens camera (ILC) system. Not only do you have to pick lenses, but ILC's are inherently more capable, which also means they're more complex.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III review: Ideal for amateurs?

 

Overall, the OM-D E-M10 Mark III is a decent mirrorless camera for the price. The autofocus, video and design improvements are all welcome. However,

Great retro style ; Autofocus improvements ; Decent image quality ; Lots of Micro Four thirds lenses to access and grow into your photography ; 4K video capture

A modest update over the Mark II model ; Still no 20MP sensor ; Plastic top/bottom plates ; Complex menu system is tricky to navigate ; No mic/headphones ports

If you're seeking a good-looking interchangeable lens mirrorless camera that can capture great shots in reasonable lighting conditions, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III does a great job. We took it out on a number of fishing trips, a week-long holiday,...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III review

 

One of our favorite mirrorless cameras just got even better

Premium finish ; Excellent EVF ; Compact proportions ; Effective IS system

16MP starting to look a little dated ; Minor update to the Mark II ; Focus-tracking could be better

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III might not be a massive leap forward over the Mark II, with much of the camera's specification remaining the same. However, Olympus has refined and tweaked one of our favorite mirrorless cameras to make it an even more...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III review: Compact, versatile, brilliant

 

Small, lightweight and attractively retro-styled, this mirrorless model is a superbly versatile choice for beginners and beyond

Excellent image quality ; Affordable yet feature-packed ; Classic, retro design

Continuous AF could be better ; Fiddly menu system ; Only 16-megapixels

Image quality is excellent, so don't be put off by its resolution having a lower figure to rivals. This is a very neat mirrorless model that deserves consideration.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III bets on a new newbie interface

 

The update to the Mark II has some design tweaks, but the biggest change is a move away from its odd "easy" operating mode.
