Olympus has unveiled its newest Micro Four Thirds digital camera, the OM-D E-M5 Mark III. This mirrorless unit is based on a 20.4MP Live MOS sensor and a TruePic VIII Image Processor. The OEM asserts that it also packs a wide range of features into a relatively compact form-factor.

Olympus has made its new Micro Four Thirds digital camera official. The OM-D E-M5 Mark III is pitched as a particularly compact mirrorless camera with lots of functions and abilities. In addition to its updated 20.4MP Live MOS sensor, it also has a 2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder - which is also OLED - as well as a 3.0-inch Vari-Angle Touchscreen - which is not.

The OM-D E-M5 Mark III also packs in-body 5-axis image stabilization. It is rated for DCI and UHD 4K video,  recording at 30 frames per second (fps). However, it also has a mechanical shutter that can achieve 10 fps for up to 150 consecutive raw files. It can also produce time-lapses of 5fps.

This new Micro Four Thirds unit also has an ISO range of 200 to 25600, as well as 121-point phase-detect chip-linked autofocus (AF). The E-M5 Mark III's AF can also be adjusted manually to suit focus ranges and points. This new Olympus mirrorless camera is to be made available on B&H Photo Video soon. It will come in black or silver colorways for a price of US$1199.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
