Fo­cal points

De­spite its nos­tal­gic de­sign, the OM-D E-M10 Mark III is packed full of up-to- date fea­tures

Short­cut but­ton

The but­ton be­side the power switch now brings up a touch-sen­si­tive func­tion menu, with op­tions that de­pend on the cur­rent shoot­ing mode.

AP 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.

En­larged grip

A larger res­culpted front-grip mould­ing and more prom­i­nent thumb rest with tex­tured, rub­berised coat­ings give a sur­pris­ingly se­cure hold.

Pop-up flash

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.

Mi­cro USB

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.

Power

The BLS-50 bat­tery is shared with pre­vi­ous E-M10 gen­er­a­tions, and charges ex­ter­nally with no op­tion to top-up via USB.
