Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III builds off the success of the well regarded, OM-D E-M5 MK II. The Micro Four Thirds system has been designed to provide advanced imaging capabilities in an extremely lightweight and compact shell, making it a perfect choice for enthusiasts and semi-professional photographers alike. The weather-sealed body features a large 20.4 megapixel, Live MOS sensor and a high-speed TruPicVIII image processor to match. The power of the processor, the large sensor and the 121-point phase detection AF system will allow you to capture some stunning imagery, especially when paired with Olympus M.Zuiko PRO lenses. Furthermore, this body also features an impressive and powerful 5-axis in-body image stabilization system that makes the E-M5 Mark III even more versatile, allowing creative options for both photographers and filmmakers.
The Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 M.ZUIKO PRO Micro Four Thirds Lens has a bright aperture of f2.8 throughout the entire zoom range, from wide-angle to mid-zoom. With its water, dust, and freeze-proof structure it is ideal for a wide variety of photographic genres including landscapes, group-shots, night scenes, portraiture and more. Subtle, gorgeous background blur is achieved thanks to the Micro Four Thirds mount and a 7-blade circular diaphragm.
The combination of 20.4MP resolution, high performance lens options and powerful image stabilisation helps photographers and videographers achieve sharp results, in a variety of shooting situations. The new OM-D E-M5 Mark III packs some of the latest imaging technologies into a portable ‘go anywhere’ body.
Olympus worked hard to miniaturise the previous model, in an effort to provide the smallest body possible. Being one of the most compact and lightweight cameras in its class, the E-M5 Mark III can easily be carried on any trip, making it ideal for travel photographers and Vloggers.
The E-M5 Mark III boasts a number of features inherited from the flagship OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera. Combining these with the 20.4 MP Live MOS sensor and high-speed TruePic VIII image processing creates a powerful system for semi-pros and enthusiasts. When paired with excellent high-resolution M.Zuiko lenses, the new body is capable of capturing images with minimal noise even at high ISO settings, and delivers edge to edge image quality with minimal distortion.
For clean, dust free images, in virtually any weather, the camera body is now constructed with a dust, splash, and freeze-proof chassis, enabling photographers to focus on shooting without worrying about weather conditions. Olympus’ acclaimed SSWF (Super Sonic Wave Filter) sensor cleaning technology reduces the amount of dust and dirt that may end up in photos or video by vibrating the image sensor filter 30,000 times per second when turning the camera on. The iconic design has been further improved ergonomically by adding thumb rests on the back with an enlarged grip to provide a more solid purchase on the camera.
The OM-D E-M5 Mark III is equipped with Olympus’ highly regarded 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection autofocus (AF) system which allows different single and group target options. Unlike the autofocus in DSLR cameras there is no reduction in AF precision when using a fast lens. This system offers high-precision, high-speed focusing from the maximum aperture of all M.Zuiko lenses regardless of subject pattern. The algorithm has been further improved, preventing the focus from unexpectedly jumping to the background even in mixed perspective scenes with near and far subjects. This will appeal to a variety of photographers from sports, action and wildlife to portrait and wedding shooters.
To assist capturing fast movements, such as sports or wildlife photography, the E-M5 Mark III allows up to 10 fps high-speed sequential shooting in AF/AE tracking. The moving subject tracking algorithm utilises AF information from both Live View and recorded images to enable quick tracking of unpredictable movement as well as changes in subject speed.
The high-speed, high-precision AF brings out the full potential of the MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism which enables fast and quiet autofocusing when using M Zuiko lenses.
