Despite its nostalgic design, the OM-D E-M10 Mark III is packed full of up-to- date features
The button beside the power switch now brings up a touch-sensitive function menu, with options that depend on the current shooting mode.
A new position on the mode dial gives access to a range of creative ‘Advanced Photography’ functions that were previously buried in the menus.
A larger resculpted front-grip moulding and more prominent thumb rest with textured, rubberised coatings give a surprisingly secure hold.
A small flash unit is hidden in the camera’s ‘pentaprism’ housing. Unlike on other OM-D models, it can’t control external flashes wirelessly.
The proprietary port found on previous Olympus cameras has given way to a standard Micro USB connector, alongside a mini HDMI output hidden under a flap on the handgrip.
The BLS-50 battery is shared with previous E-M10 generations, and charges externally with no option to top-up via USB.
