    Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III Announcement

      News

    Even though this camera had its premiere some time ago, we would like to mention it since its previous version is the best-selling mirrorless camera on the market.

    Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III, as this is the camera that we’re talking about, is a renewed version of E-M10 Mark II, which offers quite good functions and ergonomy for a reasonable price.

    Just like its predecessor, Mark III is equipped with a 16-Mp Live MOS sensor, of course in the Micro Four Thirds format, enabling it to function within the ISO sensitivity range of 200 - 25600. On the one hand, it is a convenient size of the sensor. On the other hand, all competitive cameras already have greater sensor resolution – and we can expect that this model will stay on the market for at least 2 years. The sensor has perfect 5-axis sensor stabilization, known from the higher models, which, according to the producer, should be characterized by the effectiveness of 4 EV.

    The sensor works in the set with the new TruePic VIII processor, which will possibly positively influence the way of processing images and their quality in higher sensitivity.

    2). Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III

     

    With the use of this camera, we can take photographs with the maximum speed of 8.6fps and we can save around 22 photographs in RAW. These parameters are practically the same as in the previous model.

    The autofocus has now 121 AF points, which cover almost the entire frame.

    The camera still offers an electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 2.36 MP, the 3’’ folding LCD touch screen and Wi-Fi module, with the use of which we will be able to remotely control the device and send photographs to mobile devices.

    The greatest improvement is the possibility of recording movies in 4K with the speed of 30fps, and the greatest disappointment is the fact that the body of the camera will not be fully made of metal, as in the case of the previous versions of the E-M10 model. However, as the producer ensures, the camera should still be resistant. But it’s a pity that the producer gets rid of the things which have previously distinguished constructions in this series.

      M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm F1.2 PRO is a lens which is to ensure greater than average resolution and image plasticity within the whole frame range. Inside the lens we will find 15 optical elements placed in 11 groups. Among them there are aspherical lenses and new ED-DSA (Extra-Low Dispersion Dual Super Aspherical) lenses, thanks to which it was possible to limit their quantity.
       
      Specific elements have been covered with Z Coating Nano, which is to reduce undesired lighting effects while working against the light.

      The new M.Zuiko is a very resistant and compact construction. It has the dimensions of 68x87mm and it weighs 380g. The metal tubus has been fully sealed against dust and splashes.
