Portraits – Olympus OM-D E-M10


A small camera built to get the big picture, the E-M10 offers pro-style performance and the versatility of interchangeable lenses in a portable package. When the portrait you shoot is a keepsake, the E-M10’s advanced image sensor and powerful processor will give you the incredible resolution and color rendition no smartphone can.

With the E-M10 you won’t have to choose between powerful and portable. It boasts a 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor, an advanced TruePic VII image processor with Fine Detail technology for extraordinary resolution and accurate color rendition, warp-speed autofocus, and three-axis in-body image stabilization that works with all lenses for sharp, detailed images and steady video.

With light sensitivity settings as high as ISO 25,600, the E-M10 is perfect for shooting dark scenes and indoor locations, while its sensor’s rich dynamic range makes smooth gradations possible and beautifully depicts high-contrast highlights and shadows.

The OM-D E-M10’s partner in photographic excellence is the Olympus M.Zuiko lens system—a family of professional-grade glass with digital optics that deliver incredible resolution and overall image quality. From long-distance tele to up-close-and-personal macro, and everything in between, there’s an M.Zuiko lens for every situation.

In addition, the E-M10 has a large, fast electronic viewfinder (EVF) that displays all the shooting information you need. View in real time the effects of focus peaking, exposure, white balance, color tone, aspect ratio, highlight & shadow control, framing grids and more. And an eye sensor automatically switches the display between the electronic viewfinder and the camera’s tilting, 3.0-inch, touch-screen LCD monitor.

Other features include: 12 art filters and nine art effects; Full HD 1080p movie recording with art fade; interval/time lapse shooting; color creator mode; and live composite mode that offers previews of long exposures in the EVF—a perfect tool for easily capturing light trails when shooting a star-filled sky. In addition, a new feature, photo & movie capture, shoots high-quality photos without interrupting video recording.

The E-M10 is also the first OM-D model with a built-in flash. And it has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, for full remote control, geotagging and sharing via the OI.Share app.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10, in black or silver, sells for $649.99 body only. A kit with the M.Zuiko Digital 14–42mm f/3.5–5.6 II R lens costs $799.99. olympusamerica.com
