Olympus Australia has announced mid-September availability of its latest entry-level mirrorless compact, the E-M10 Mark III, with an body only RRP of $999.
The body is compact but incorporates an easy-to-hold grip and nice chunky buttons and dials for ease of operation.
The E-M10 Mk III features a 16-megapixel image sensor and TruePic VIII processor, with in-body 5-axis image stabilisation and 4K movie recording.
The renowned Olympus stabilisation system enables users to record blur-free 4K video when the camera is hand-held in a wide range of lighting conditions. The new camera also features an AP (Advanced Photo) mode that accesses four camera assist shooting modes, including Live Composite and Multiple Exposure. High-speed AF performance is powered by 121- AF points across the sensor area plus touch operations to capture any subject. Continuous shooting is supported at up to 8.6 fps.
Like other OM-D cameras, the E-M10 Mark III has two control dials on the upper section of the body. It has a 2.36 million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder and tilting 3-inch LCD monitor with touchscreen capabilities, plus a built-in flash.
A Shortcut button on the left-hand side of the camera can instantly display the shooting menu, and quickly set or switch shooting modes. Four settings (ISO, flash, drive and focus) are assigned to the directional buttons on the arrow pad allowing for quick and easy access to core camera settings. A customisable Function button allows users to add a frequently-used function for quick access.
The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III will be available in silver and black from mid-September 2017 for an RRP of AU$999.
