This double lens kit includes the E-M10 Mark III Body, 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ Lens & the 40-150mm f/4-4.6 R Lens.
E-M10 Mark III Overview
Compact, lightweight and better-than-ever, the black OM-D
E-M10 Mark III from Olympus takes its place as an extremely capable entry-level
option for shooters looking to pick up an SLR-styled mirrorless Micro Four
Thirds camera. This version comes bundled with the compact M.Zuiko Digital ED
14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ Lens, which provides a versatile 28-84mm equivalent zoom
range for capturing a variety of subject matter. Also, this kit comes with a
16GB SDHC memory card and a camera case, practically everything you need to go
out and start shooting.
This iteration incorporates a 16.1MP Four Thirds Live MOS
sensor and the Dual Quad-Core TruePic VIII Image Processor, enabling a variety
of fast and powerful functions, including video recording at up to UHD 4K. The
camera does retain its intuitive and rugged construction, benefitting from many
physical controls as well as a 3.0" tilting touchscreen LCD and a
2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder with an improved 1.23x magnification.
Additionally, various other functions have been implemented to make shooting
more fun, such as 15 Art Filters and a Clips Video Mode that lets you quickly
make videos in camera.
The E-M10 Mark III features many capabilities to improve
overall image quality. The most significant of these is the inclusion of a
robust in-body 5-axis image stabilization system that can compensate for about
4 stops of shutter speed. Along with this, an upgraded 121-point contrast-detect
AF system will help you lock on, track, and capture tack-sharp photos of your
subjects. Speed has been given a boost as well with up to 8.6 fps continuous
shooting and a sensitivity range of up to ISO 25600. An electronic shutter
function is present in the Mark III for even faster shutter speeds and silent
shooting. Beyond all this, the camera of course features built-in Wi-Fi, this
time with a QR Code function for even faster setup.
16.1MP Live MOS Sensor & TruePic VIII Image Processor
In order to create high-resolution imagery, the OM-D E-M10
Mark III is blessed with a Four Thirds 16.1MP Live MOS Sensor and the Dual
Quad-Core TruePic VIII Image Processor, a combination designed to maximize
speed and quality. It helps users create sharp photos and video in a wide range
of situations using sensitivities ranging from ISO 200-25600, and which can be
extended to ISO 100-25600. It also provides an electronic shutter function for
faster shutter speeds and completely silent operation and can record
uncompressed 12-bit raw image files.
UHD 4K Video Recording
The added processing power of the TruePic VIII provides the
E-M10 Mark III with greater video capabilities in addition to stills, this time
permitting the creation of high-resolution UHD 4K video at up to 30p. Users can
enjoy a high bit rate of 102 Mbps for crisp, detailed imagery and there are
options for both NTSC and PAL frame rates. Full HD and HD recording features
increased speed with options in Full HD for up to 60p and high-speed HD 720p at
up to 120 fps.
In addition to video recording, a Time-lapse Movie mode is
also available for recording up to 4K UHD resolution with a 5 fps shooting rate
to highlight subject changes or movement over a longer period of time. Full HD
and HD time-lapse settings are available, too. Also, there is a Clips Video
Mode present for in-camera video creation, including the ability to use audio
transferred to your SD card.
In-Body 5-Axis Image Stabilization
In-body, sensor-shift image stabilization helps to minimize
the appearance of camera shake by up to 4 stops with any lens in use and
compensates for camera movements that become especially noticeable when working
with telephoto shots, macro imagery, and long exposures. Furthermore, this
unique image stabilization system works across five axes to compensate for
vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, horizontal shift, vertical
shift, and rolling camera shake movement. This range of detected movements
serves to benefit traditional still image shooting as well as movie recording
and working with moving subjects more effectively. Additionally, image
stabilization can also be used when framing shots, for more accurate
compositions, by half-pressing the shutter button.
121-Point Contrast-Detect AF System and 8.5 fps Shooting
Lock on and track subject matter quickly and effectively in
order to guarantee tack-sharp imagery by using the E-M10 Mark III's upgraded
121-point contrast-detect high-speed imager AF system. Users can also access
Touch AF functions via the rear LCD and will benefit from excellent tracking
performance. Also, the E-M10 III can shoot at speeds of up to 8.5 fps with the
ability to record burst of up to 22 raw frames or 36 JPEGs. A low-speed 4.8 fps
setting is available with no limit to the buffer.
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
Durable body features two dials, a directional pad, and
shortcut button for fast, intuitive control.
Built-in Wi-Fi is available for direct connection to a smart
device and a QR code setting can be accessed for faster connection and setup.
The 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD can tilt downward
45° and upward 85° for use at odd angles.
Touch control provides direct access to various functions:
shutter release, AF area selection, AF area size adjustment, AF touch pad,
frame forward/backward, magnified playback, Live Guide, Super Control Panel,
Art Filter, Wi-Fi connection, video controls, video effects, video
teleconverter, and timer.
For eye-level viewing a 2.36m-dot EVF is available, which
features an improved magnification of 1.23x for increased comfort during use.
A mechanical shutter with a 1/4000 to 60 second range is
present alongside a silent electronic shutter function with a 1/16000 to 30
Built-in flash with guide number of 19' at ISO 100 for
illuminating dark scenes.
One SD card slot is available with support for UHS-II media.
External flash units can be used via the hot shoe.
Other Camera Features
Silent Shutter Mode eliminates shutter noise and other
electronic sounds to benefit working in nature, concert halls, or other
Advanced Auto Mode analyzes the scene and subject in order
to select the best possible settings.
Scene Mode features various presets for optimizing camera
performance to your subject matter, including People, Motion, Indoors,
Nightscapes, Scenery, Close-Up, and more.
Fifteen Art filters are available to add some flair to your
images, including a new Bleach Bypass option to provide an old film feel with a
silvery, glossy feel on metal textures.
Advanced Photography (AP) Mode offers access to various
creative modes, including Live Composite, Live Time, Panorama, HDR, Silent, Keystone
Compensation, Focus Bracketing, Multiple Exposure, and AE Bracketing.
Live Bulb and Live Time settings can be used to produce
creative long exposure imagery. Live Bulb lets you hold the shutter open for up
to one minute and Live Time lets you press the shutter button once to open the
shutter and then press again within a minute to end the exposure.
Live Composite is a unique long exposure mode that allows
you to gradually build up an exposure over time without overexposing key
elements within the frame. This mode works to only record newly detected light
sources over time, and allows you to watch as an image develops, making it
ideally suited for photographing star trails or other moving light sources.
Interval shooting is supported for up to 999 frames with 1
second to 24-hour exposure intervals.
