Excellent travel camera

  • Excerpt: Shooting with a Nikon DSLR most of the time, I thought it would be difficult to get a second camera system for travel. The OM-D E-M10 is a 1/3 of the size of my D610, but is a great addition to my photographic arsenal.It's compact size allows for easy packing. But I've been really impressed with the quality of photos and ease of use.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

  • Excerpt: Unbelievable what can be done with this little gem. Have done nature photography as well as family Christmas photos. Have done lots of candids with and without the flash. Both are good. Flash seems a little underpowered but still good. Shot nature photos to experiment and have been impressed. Used the 40-150 for most of those shots but also used 14-42. I like the ability to control imaging, just like with a full size DSLR.

A good little camera for everyday use

  • Excerpt: I purchased this camera intending to supplement a heavy Nikon D7000. After about two weeks of daily use, I'm impressed. It's small and light. I tend to keep a 25mm prime (50mm 35mm equivalent) on it, and with that lens it's a fast little shooter.I'm not thrilled with the menu system. It's confusing, and difficult to navigate. I'm still learning how to use the option of setting personal preferences.I'm not thrilled with the on board flash.
  • Pros: Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Short Battery Life

Keepig it classy!

  • Excerpt: Casual photographer here. Best uses: Family photos, scenery, travel, lots of light. Worst uses: Action, video, low light. I downsized from a D60 for something smaller, plus I wanted to try out the mirrorless cameras. I love how small and compact it is. I love that there are 5x more lense options than the Sony? alternative. I love that it has a view finder--even if digital. I wish focus was faster (minus half a star) and I wish battery life was longer (minus half a star).
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Poor in Low Light, Short Battery Life

Great Value

  • Excerpt: I am a hobbyist photographer. I bought this camera to compliment my Fuji X100. I needed an ILC after I sold my DSLR last winter. I have been watching the great strides made in the micro 4/3 world and was ready to try an Olympus. I liked the E-M5 price point but wanted something newer that wouldn't be out dated. Behold the E-M10!I bought the 12-40 Pro lens as a all around use since I already have my X100 for the prime 35mm equivalent.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

Small Camera with Big Capabilities

  • Excerpt: This camera has been great since day one. I chose to purchase a mirror less camera to travel with. I usually use a Nikon D-300 so I did not want to loose the ability to use my camera on fully manual and still have a view finder. The camera takes great photographs that can be expanded up to 11x14 without any noticeable difference from the D-300. The size along makes this camera worth while.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Quiet
  • Cons: Poor Image Stabilization

User Review

BFHunt, DP Review
28 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I've owned the camera for 3 weeks and couldn't be happier with my choice. It may not be the best camera for everyone, but for my needs (all around general purpose shooting, old "reading glass" eyes, film SLR heritage) it's just perfect. I started "serious" photography in the late 1970's when I bought a used Pentax Spotmatic SLR with a couple of lenses. I upgraded to a Canon A-1, which I still have to this day, shortly thereafter.
