"The E-M10 Series has always been a personal favourite as it captures the essence of the original film OM-10: great to hold; easy to carry around and really rewarding to use." Mark Thackara, Olympus UK

At around half the size and weight of other interchangeable lens systems, Olympus’ biggest advantage is its amazing mobility thanks to a compact, lightweight camera system, including the lenses. The combination of the high-resolution, high-performance lens line-up and powerful image stabilization capability results in sharp, high-quality photos and videos across a spectrum of scenarios, backdrops and conditions. The E-M10 Mark IV is the smallest OM-D. With its improved grip and the latest imaging technologies, it is the perfect choice for all those seeking a compact solution that can always be with them.

Superb portability and powerful in-body 5-axis image stabilization for high-quality photos and videos

The classic Olympus body design, which is now lighter than ever before, weighs as much as a single 500 ml bottled beverage** even when combined with the standard kit lens, giving it ideal portability. The new improved grip of the E-M10 Mark IV offers a secure hold for comfortable control. Owing to its in-body 5-axis image stabilization featuring up to 4.5 shutter speed steps of compensation***, the new 20 megapixel Live MOS sensor and the powerful M.Zuiko lenses, high-quality photos and videos including night and telephoto shots, are guaranteed in all scenarios. The battery can easily be charged in the camera via USB even while on the go.

Versatile shooting features and a tilting LCD monitor perfect for selfies

The E-M10 Mark IV is packed with features for accurately capturing once-ina-lifetime moments including around 15 fps high-speed sequential shooting unheard of on conventional system cameras not that long ago. The improved C-AF precision enables continuous focusing on moving subjects. Face-Priority/Eye Priority AF now also focuses on faces either in profile or downturned. Silent mode, which disables the shutter release and operation sounds, is useful in scenarios where noise is unwanted, such as during recitals and when capturing sleeping children’s faces.

In auto mode, the Olympus OM-D detects different shooting situations and automatically selects the appropriate settings. The Advanced Photo (AP) mode even allows taking pictures for which previous photographic experience is normally required: multiple exposures, traces of light from stars or car headlights in Live Composite mode are accomplished in no time at all. And thanks to the 4K video function, beautiful moments can also be extracted as an image in 4k.

The OM-D series’ first flip-down LCD monitor makes selfie touch operations easier. It also supports high-angle and low-angle shooting so that photos
and videos turn out exactly as you imagine in various settings. The E-M10 Mark IV also features a high-definition electronic viewfinder for mastering shooting in bright outdoor or backlit conditions

Camera instructions and tutorials are available in the app for learning shooting methods and techniques.



The OM-D E-M10 Mark IV is fully compatible with Olympus’ extensive range of Micro Four Thirds lenses as well as third party lenses conforming to the Micro Four Thirds System standard and other accessories, including tailormade camera bags, electronic flashes and free image editing and workflow software Olympus Workspace.
