For limited time only, save 29.00% on the Olympus OM-D E-M10 dropping from $699.00 to $499.00 when you buy this item at Adorama.com and Shipping is free! . The Olympus OM-D E-M10 also comes in 2 other colors .

The Olympus E-M10 Digital Interchangeable Lens Camera with M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 IIR Lens (Black) boasts a powerful TruePic VII image processor, a large, interactive electronic viewfinder, built-in flash and Wi-Fi, a warp-speed AF system that allows sequential shooting at 8fps (yes, eight) and much more.

The E-M10 ups the ante by pairing a 16MP Live MOS sensor with the most powerful TruePic VII image processor for extraordinary resolution and accurate color rendition. Add 3-axis in-body image stabilization that compensates for horizontal and vertical angular shifts (yaw/pitch) as well as camera shake along the optical axis (roll) and you have a camera that captures incredibly sharp images and video, yet is compact enough to bring just about anywhere. A number of versatile external flashes (with wireless remote control capabilities) also play well with the E-M10 for situations that require additional lighting.

The E-M10's slim, elegant body is made of metal, tricked with meticulously engineered metal parts. (The 2x2 dial controls are particularly sweet). The E-M10 just feels right, substantial yet perfectly balanced. It's only fitting that a beautiful camera like this takes such beautiful photos.

Shooting at eye level is comfortably familiar. And when you get a live view of exposure, white balance and other useful information and the ability to control highlights, shadows, colors and more - as you do with the E-M10's electronic viewfinder - you're in position to take some of the best photos of your life. You can also apply various framing grids and a leveling guide for composing better photos and even monitor video recording.

The E-M10 is a marvel of thoughtful design and useful functionality. Built-in Wi-Fi for easy image sharing and wireless control, built-in flash for filling in the shadows and numerous creative tools, tiltable LCD monitor with touch screen.

You might want to wear your running shoes when using the E-M10. High-speed sequential shooting - at a best-in-class 8fps - and super high-speed FAST AF technology ensure that you won't miss the shot no matter how quickly your subject is moving. In fact, the autofocus tracking function is better than ever thanks to enhancements to the group target Continuous AF function. The E-M10 also provides an 81-point AF grid that covers the entire image frame, giving you more focus options than basic DSLRs.

Focus peaking in manual focus mode. Color Creator. HDR and HDR bracketing. Twelve Art Filters and nine Art Effects. Photo Story (including a new Zoom In/Out theme). Photo and Movie Capture (high-quality stills while shooting a movie - at an insane 5fps in P/A/S/M mode). Live Composite Mode for capturing starscapes intuitively. The E-M10 offers you an incredible array of easy-to-use creative tools that can transform your photos from excellent to spectacular.

The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 IIR Lens utilizes Olympus' MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) focusing technology for fast and silent autofocus performance. Continuous focusing is extremely smooth during HD video capture, eliminating jarring focus transitions completely. A retractable two-stage barrel design ensures the smallest travel size in your bag.

Great features, excellent portability!

By

from Huntsville, AL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I started to really get into photography in 2005 when I started college. Over the next decade as I got more and more experience shooting I thought the best way to improve my photos was to upgrade all my gear from my entry level stuff to "prosumer" gear. I amassed a large collection of lenses, flashes, grips, bags, and tripods and somehow my photos didn't get any better. In fact, I found myself taking less and less photos until sometime last year I realized I hadn't even taken a single photo in over a year. Somehow, I felt obligated to haul all my gear with me whenever I went to take pictures, just on the off chance I would need an obscure lens or filter. I realized I had become a slave to all my gear to the point I didn't even want to take photos because it was such a chore. I decided to sell all my gear and go back to basics to try and rekindle my love for photography. After considering options from Fujifilm, Nikon, Panasonic, and Olympus I decided to get the E-M10 ad I've been very happy so far! My primary concern in my new camera was portability, and finding something that wouldn't be a burden to take anywhere. The E-M10 has that in spades. It's substantially smaller than even the smallest DSLR. I actually ended up getting a grip to help with the ergonomics a bit. The construction also exceeded my expectations. Every surface you touch feels substantial and well-built. It's also a very attractive camera. The screen is very high quality, however the viewfinder could be a little higher resolution. The touch screen is also a feature that could be of value to some, but I find myself using physical buttons far more. Having 2 control dials was something I definitely wanted, and both are well positioned and have a good feel. There is a pop-up flash that will work in a pinch as well as a shoe on top for a dedicated flash. There are both USB and HDMI ports on the side of the camera that are easy to access. On a side note, I wish someone would make a camera that you could charge with the battery in the body, because the charger is unnecessarily bulky and takes up valuable space in your bag! I'm trying to stay compact here Olympus! The micro four thirds system has a bevy of lenses from Olympus, Panasonic/Leica, Sigma, and others, so it's very easy to find a lens that suits your style. I usually keep a 17mm Olympus on the body most of the time. All the pictures I've taken so far have been of very good quality, very little noticeable difference between this and my old full-size DSLR. The in-body image stabilization was a clear advantage over the competition too. Overall I'm so glad I traded down to this camera. I am already carrying it with me to places and events I would have never taken my giant rig to. I can see this little camera reigniting my love of photography already!

Great Decision

By

from Gainesville, VA

As a long time Canon shooter, I have debated getting into mirrorless to make carrying a camera less of a chore, and to take better photos than my iPhone. Thus ensued months of investigation, reading every review I could get my hands on and struggling with my decision. I initially opted for the Nikon 1 V2. Bad decision. The real deal when it comes to weight and portability, shoots like a machine gun, but could not get 1 in 10 photos in focus at my grandkids soccer and basketball games. What good is all this technology if you are not getting "keepers"? Sold this camera and lenses. In the meantime, Sony came out with the A7, Fuji with the T1, and Olympus with the M-10. Made a tough decision even harder. After more research, purchased the Olympus M-10 (debated getting the M-1 for $700 more - in the end, I thrilled with my decision for the M-10). The camera may be the best I have ever owned, coupled with the Olympus 12-40MM 2.8 lens, the photos are wonderful. I find the camera easy to use, light weight to carry, quick to focus, does not shoot as fast as the Nikon, but now 90% of the pictures are keepers - quite an improvement! I also use the M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 R lens for taking action shots of my grandkids - use it mostly outdoors so the relatively slow lens is not an issue. If you are looking for the same kinds of benefits I was, you owe it to yourself to check out this Olympus camera. I cannot imagine finding a better one.

Amazing camera

By

from Gainesville, VA

I am a photo enthusiast and have been shooting Canon for many years - I have both full frame and APSC gear and some excellent Canon glass for both cameras. I have been very happy with these cameras, with the exception of their size and heft. It is a real drag to take pictures of my grandkids at their games, dragging around the hefty cameras and the (sometimes) even heavier glass to go with it. Getting lighter weight gear that would still take quality pictures is what got me interested in mirrorless cameras. I initially tried the Nikon 1 system, V2. It is really small, and the lenses are equally small, so that was a good fit. However, with the small sensor and the focus system, I had a great deal of difficulty getting focus on the right thing when taking action photos, and no matter what lens you attach, it is nearly impossible to get any bokeh. While it shoots at the speed of a machine gun, if only 10% of the photos are in focus I am not impressed. Sold the camera and moved on. Next I purchased the Fujifilm X100s. This is a great camera...I love everything about it. Excellent quality throughout. But not worth much trying to get a photo across a soccer field - it is just not suited for this type of photography. But I still have it and use it often for a walk-around camera and highly recommend it. But it was clear I needed something with more reach from a lens perspective. I had not considered the micro 4/3 cameras since I thought their sensor size might turn out like my disappointment with the Nikon. Wow, was I ever wrong. I purchased the Olympus OM-D M10. While it may be at the low end of the Olympus price range, it is on the high end of the performance range. I cannot imagine being more pleased with the OM-D M1, for $500 more; not sure I could ever have justified the price difference with the quality of this camera. Solid build. Wonderful photos. I find it easy to use and understand the menus, contrary to what some have said. Almost a perfect camera in every way - I especially like how fast if focuses - instead of 10% of my sport shots being keepers, I am now over 90%, and the 10% are my fault, not the fault of the camera. Of course, the quality of photos has a lot to do with the glass on the camera. I have the Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 and the Olympus M. 40-150mm F4.0-5.6 R Zoom Lens, and I love them both. The 12-40 has this cool feature that allows you to go from auto to manual focus by moving a ring on the lens - it is fast and foolproof, and have never had that feature on a lens before. I find the 12-40 (24mm-80mm equivalent) to be in the same class as my Canon EF70-200mm f2.8 for about half the price (and it is a lot smaller and lighter to boot!) I did so much research before I purchased this combination, and for once it really worked out. I am completely sold on the micro 4/3 system, and especially the quality of Olympus cameras and lenses.

all the OM-D you need in a small package

By

from HI

This is a proper OM-D camera, cut down in size maybe, but not missing many features. The wifi and focus peaking are new and very welcome additions. The image quality is awesome and the autofocus is fast (just like with the previous OM-D models). There are plenty of m4/3 lenses to choose from... I am very happy with my purchase! I can take DSLR-quality pictures with a camera that fits into a jacket pocket. The cons are few. As has no doubt been mentioned before, the menu system is needlessly complicated and is in bad need of an overhaul. I also wish there was an easier way to set up and recall custom settings - why doesn't Olympus put C1, C2 on the mode dial like so many other manufacturers? Other than that I can whole-heartedly recommend this amazing little camera. Thanks Olympus for not deliberately crippling it like many other brands would have!

The camera I have been waiting for!

By

from Philadelphia, Pa

This is the camera I have been waiting for! I have owned 2 PEN cameras, the E-PL1, and the E-PM1 (which I still own), and like the great picture quality, compact size, and the interchangeable lenses of these cameras. The E-M10 has everything I love about the Olympus four-thirds cameras but with so many more great features! The body itself has a great build and feels solid and comfortable to hold. The built in flash is a big plus; I like to have a flash available whenever needed. The tilting touch screen is extremely useful, and I can always make sure I get what I want in focus by touching the screen at that point; no need to have to change the focal point manually. I like to just take good pictures and this camera makes it so easy with the front dials that control the shadow/highlight, magnify, and color creator adjustments. Especially love the color creator! This camera puts so many creative functions at my fingertips, and, with such ease of use, I will definitely use these functions regularly. The expansion of the Art Filters to include effects is a definite plus as well! The viewfinder, though something I would not particularly weigh heavily in buying a camera, is a definite plus as well. It will definitely come in handy. I have had this camera for about a week and am definitely pleased with it! Olympus has hit the mark with this camera! I have always liked the concept and great pictures of SLR's but have not liked the bulkiness of them and the PEN line has been a good alternative but the E-M10 is the ultimate! I have the 14-42 EZ lens on backorder and cannot wait to get it but have been shooting using the 45mm lens with awesome results. I used to purchase point and shoot cameras (always Olympus I may add) with the zoom being the primary focus. With the PEN series, and now the E-M10, I have traded the long zoom lens for picture quality and ultimate creativity!

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

ckonnec t  I want to learn more about photography (will shoot family, travel and street as ameteur). Buying my first interchangeable lens camera. Am I overdoing it by starting with the e-m1 vs. the e-m10? I prefer this micro 4/3 to the Full Frame.
TERENCE C  I have the OMD EM1 and OMD EM5 and they are both excellent cameras. I do not have the E-M 10 and cannot comment on it. From reading about the specifications, it appears to be a model below the OMD EM5. You cannot go wrong with the EM1. the EM5 is nearly as good as the EM1. If cost is a concern, a new E-M 10 or a used OMD EM5 may be a consideration. There are some excellent used OMD EM5 to choose from.
Tom R  Does the digital level work in portrait mode on both the EVF and LCD?
MARK K  I just checked, and yes, the digital level works in portrait mode on both the EVF and the LCD. Just keep hitting the "info" button until the levels (two-axis!) appear.
