Today Olympus launched the successor to their OM-D E-M10 interchangeable lens camera with the new Mark 3 version of the camera, which comes with a number of new improvements including 4K video capture, and the integration of the new TruePic VIII image processor, which has been borrowed from the OM-D E-M1 MKII.

With this, Olympus aims to create a great quality camera from travelling, thanks to its lightweight and compact build.

And despite that compact build, the MKIII is still a Micro Four-Thirds camera which means that it will be compatible with a wide range of lenses.

 

It also features a built-in electronic viewfinder, a 3-inch touchscreen, built in WiFi for connecting to a smartphone, and a number of controls along the top that provide easy access to the features of the camera (pictured above).

You will find the touchscreen action at the back of the camera, which allows users to select a particular area with a touch of the screen while being able to view what mode and features are activated on the camera as well as a live view from the camera of course.

Oh and that display is adjustable, as you can see in the image below.

 

And we still aren’t done with the features of this camera.

The MKIII also features a new sharper Auto mode for better results in low-light, there’s a new Scene mode with six preset themes that has pre-adjustable settings, and the camera now features a total of 121 focus points.

The design of the MKIII is pretty much the same, however, it does have a larger handle.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 MKIII will be available from mid-September in black/silver and black colour finishes.

The body only version will be available for £630 and there will be an Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm kit lens will cost £650 and a version with a a M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm pancake lens for £700.
