A great mirror less camera for shooting monochrome

James B., B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: A little small for a person with big hands. Sometimes, as a result, settings get bumped accidentally, but it doesn't happen too often. Love the weight and feel of this camera-- reminds me of a Leica...
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Excellent but freak menu system

afshalders, B&H Photo
1 June 2015
  • Excerpt: Image quality is excellent, good price, almost perfect. But Olympus engineers must be joking about the menu system. It's completely overwelming and badly conceived. It's the worst I've ever seen in my life. Besides this it's an excellent camera.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Freaky Menu System

Great camera, lightweight

Abby, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have been using the camera only for a few days now but so far it's been great. It's lightweight so perfect for traveling, hiking, etc. I have been having particular fun with the HDR function. It's generally easy to use. Just two small complaints so far: 1) the manual is very lacking.

Makes Me Look Good

Roger Ramjet, B&H Photo
26 May 2015
  • Excerpt: Have had my OMD M10 for about 10 days now. I'm an amateur photographer who likes smaller, sleeker cameras. Kit lens delivers excellent images and image processing renders the best natural colors I've ever seen (have had Fuji, Panasonic, Canon, and Sony cameras).
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

Small and light

Leana, B&H Photo
21 May 2015
  • Excerpt: Bought this camera as a back-up to my E-1 which I love! With static photos, I find this camera to be good. It is small which is nice, but maybe a little too small and there is some movement while pressing the shutter. Guess I am so used to the E1 I will need to practice with the E10.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

Crippled by it's mediocre lens.

Liquidmachine, B&H Photo
18 May 2015
  • Excerpt: I recently traded my DSLR system for a mirrorless set up. But I felt like I needed something even smaller on a day-to-day basis. The OMD EM 10 looked very promising so I just went ahead tried it out . Out-of-the-box it felt fantastic. it had all the manual controls that I would ever need.
  • Pros: Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

This camera and lens combination is excellent. The 14-42mm EZ pancake lens is brilliant IMO

Dean G., Amazon
17 April 2015
  • Summary: This camera and lens combination is excellent. The 14-42mm EZ pancake lens is brilliant IMO, and performs much better than I expected. Though it supposedly uses the same optical formula as the 14-42mm II R lens, the images I'm getting are more pleasing to me in contrast and sharpness.

Excellent travel option

Brian, Amazon
25 March 2015
  • Summary: Beautifully designed and handles very well. I purchased after shooting Canon 5D III and Sony A7 nearly exclusively for years and find the portability of the Olympus to be a very welcomed feature. You can't expect the same image quality but this camera certainly holds its own.

My first real camera

LORETTA MANNING, Amazon
19 February 2015
  • Summary: Good looking, fits well in your hand, not real big, built in flash, takes some time to learn to use. Bought it for my trip to Grand Canyon. Watched a bunch of YouTube videos to learn how to use it. Can't vote five stars as I'm a novice.
