Olympus has announced the new Olympus OM-D E-M10 III, an update to its OM-D line. The new camera adds 4K video recording capabilities. At the same time it features more beginner-friendly functions for first time mirror-less camera users.
The E-M10 III shares the same 16MP Micro Four Thirds sensor as its predecessor, but several updated features including 121 autofocus points, up from the previous 81 points. It also now shoots at 8.6fps for better burst-mode shooting.
Carried over from the previous model is a 5-axis in-body stabilisation for shake-free photography as well as video recording. This is useful to reduce any shaky-cam footage recorded, especially in the high-resolution 4K mode.
Other new functions include larger mode dials and an updated Auto Mode for better scene and subject recognition. It also has new shortcut buttons for easy access to relevant camera settings.
Transferring photos and videos is easy thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi, and it can accept all of the previously released Micro Four Thirds lens to expand its photo and video capabilities.
Starting from September, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 III will be available in either a black/silver or a full black body for US$ 649.99 (approx. RM 2,757 ) or US$ 799.99 (around RM 3,181) with the M.Zuiko 14–42mm EZ Lens.
