Olympus OM-D E-M10

Steve's Digicams
9 July 2014
  • Excerpt: At the beginning of 2014, Olympus announced its latest Interchangeable Lens Camera system in the OM-D series. The Micro Four Thirds OM-D E-M10 aims to combine the best elements of the flagship E-M1 and E-M5 , and shrink them into a more compact body. The E-M10 boasts a 16-megapixel Live MOS image sensor, the TruePic VII image processor, and an in-body 3-axis image stabilization system (the more expensive OM-D series cameras include a 5-axis system) that "effectively...

Olympus E-M10 a good interchangeable-lens mirrorless alternative to first dSLR

CNET
25 April 2014
  • Summary: Though it doesn't deliver the best photo quality, the sum of the Olympus OM-D E-M10's design, performance and features add up to a nice upgrade from a point-and-shoot.
  • Pros: The Olympus OM-D E-M10's design and interface works well for both beginning and advanced photographers, it has a well-rounded feature set, and it's fast enough for general-purpose kids-and-pets photography.
  • Cons: It produces good-but-not-great photos and videos.

  • Summary: The Olympus OM-D E-M10 is positioned as the entry-level OM-D camera, though it's just as capable in most ways as its more advanced siblings. It borrows the E-M5's impressive imaging capabilities, without the weatherproofing, and adds built-in Wi-Fi. The E-M10 offers an impressive level of direct control in a camera body that's light and compact.
  • Pros: E-M5 image quality in smaller, lighter body, Built-in dual-axis level gauge, In-body IS works with all lenses, Dual control wheels and customizable buttons, Wi-Fi connectivity and remote shooting, Tilting LCD useful for video and tripod work, Raw files offer a good deal of latitude for post-processing, Wealth of in-camera features for creative experimentation including Live Composite and Art Filters, Quick auto focus and overall responsiveness, Built-in EVF automatica...
  • Cons: Default JPEG processing tends to muddy fine detail at ISO 3200 and above, Useful interface features hidden at default, Video quality is mediocre as details are somewhat soft, Can't combine histogram, highlight/shadow warnings etc. on the same display mode, Grip is a bit shallow and many users may want to add accessory, Rear command dial slightly out of thumb's reach and awkward to use with Fn2 button, Awkwardly-placed on/off switch, Memory card slot on bottom panel is...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review

...and baby OM-D makes three.

  • Conclusion: When Olympus told us the price of the E-M10, we were a bit beside ourselves. On paper, $700 isn't a mindblowing deal, but holding the new OM-D in your hands is an entirely different proposition. This model feels every bit as premium as the other two OM-Ds, and the images you’ll get from it are easily in the same league, too. Unfortunately, the confluence of the low-end OM-D and the top-end PEN now makes shopping for a new Olympus a bit more difficult.

  • Conclusion: It might be small and light, but the E-M10 feels like a proper camera, and when you look at the images that it produces, you know it is.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 review

Macworld UK
13 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Offering 16-megapixel stills and full-HD video in one compelling package,  the new Olympus E-M10 is the retro-styled camera for photo enthusiasts who couldn’t justify spending a pro-like grand on the previous OM-D E-M5 or E-M1 models.
  • Pros: Classic design provides a premium feel, fairly priced compared to existing E-M1 and E-M5 models in the OM-D series, pop up flash and Wi-Fi connectivity included, tilting LCD screen with high resolution, 1.4 million dot eye level finder
  • Cons: Smaller sensor size than other big name rivals, nose butts up against LCD screen when using eye level viewfinder

Olympus OM-D E-M10 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: When carrying the E-M10 around, it garnered a lot of admiring attention - in keeping with the OM-D range, it is beautifully crafted and doesn't go unnoticed. Opting for a magnesium-alloy body, Olympus has managed to retain a sense of quality that one would expect from a premium camera body. For the majority of people who will be considering the E-M10, the omission of weather-sealing won't make any difference whatsoever.
