The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV is the 4th version of the entry-level OM-D camera, updating the E-M10 III, and bringing image quality in-line with its more expensive siblings. 

It has a number of incremental improvements, the most radical being a tilting monitor that will fold under the camera and you can capture video in 4K. There's also a 20MP sensor 15fps continuous shooting, 4K video recording, in-body image stabilisation, full manual controls and more.
