The technical details behind this camera
The EM5 Mark III features dustproof and splashproof abilities in a compact and lightweight body. Featuring the reliability, high speed and high precision AF of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, the E-M5 Mark III offers outstanding portability when paired with a compact and lightweight M.Zuiko Digital lenses. The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III is a highly portable interchangeable lens camera equipped with the same 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF as the OM-D E-M1 Mark II, offering high-speed, high-precision autofocus capabilities in a compact, lightweight body. It also features a powerful image stabilisation along with versatile shooting features such as Live Composite and Live Bulb. Even when paired with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO lens, it remains a compact, lightweight camera system that can fit in a small bag to take anywhere.
Outstanding portability and high image quality in a compact, lightweight dustproof and splashproof body
The entire camera body is sealed for high-performance dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof capabilities so users can focus on shooting. This model is also equipped with SSWF (Super Sonic Wave Filter) that vibrates the image sensor filter 30,000 times per second to drastically reduce the amount of dust and dirt that ends up in photos. All parts of the E-M5 Mark III have been miniaturized to provide the smallest body possible. Dramatic improvements in power-saving performance make it possible to use the more compact BLS-50 battery for an even more lightweight and compact form overall. This model can easily be carried on trips even when paired with a large-diameter standard zoom lens. The compact system size means that users can shoot for long periods of time in locations where tripods cannot be used so photo opportunities are not missed. Olympus also offers a diverse lineup of high-resolution, compact, lightweight interchangeable lenses to support this amazing system.
Cracking speed and image quality
Just as on the E-M1 Mark II, this model boasts a combination of the approximate 20.4 Megapixel Live MOS sensor, the latest high-speed TruePic VIII image processor, and powerful image stabilisation. When paired with high-resolution M.Zuiko Digital lenses, it is capable of capturing images with minimal noise even at high-sensitivity settings and delivers high image quality with minimal distortion up to the edges of the shot.
121-point Phase Detection AF and in body 5 axis stabilisation
The 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF delivers high-speed precision focusing, even for fast-moving subjects where focus is difficult, so users never miss a photo opportunity. A new 5-axis IS unit was developed to deliver a high level of image stabilisation in a compact, lightweight body. Based on camera shake information obtained from the high-sensitivity gyro sensor and image analysis, the TruePic VIII image processor precisely controls the IS unit to enable up to 5.5 shutter speed steps of compensation performance. The in-body 5-axis IS ensures image stabilisation with all M.Zuiko Digital lenses used with the E-M5 Mark III. In addition to angular and shift blur, roll blur, which cannot be compensated for by in-lens image stabilisation only, is corrected for powerful handheld shooting support.
Top three Reasons we think you will love this camera
