PERHAPS the E- M10 III’s best new idea is the AP (Advanced Photography) mode on the top-plate dial. This takes a whole bunch of existing features that Olympus has previously hidden away in its labyrinthine menu system, and groups them on to a dedicated position on the mode dial. Pressing the camera’s shortcut button brings up a nicely designed touch menu to select between them, with a brief description and illustration of what each does. Here, you’ll find some common functions such as double- exposure, high- dynamicrange shooting, silent mode and autoexposure bracketing. However, some are unique to Olympus, including Keystone Correction for fixing converging verticals, and Live Time and Live Composite modes for getting perfect long- exposure shots at night. It’s a great way of making these creative options much more accessible to users.
