20.4MP MOS Sensor and TruePic VIII Image Processor

Powered into the stylish looking Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Mirrorless Digital Camera is a large and advanced 20.4MP MOS Sensor and a TruePic VIII Image Processor to ensure that when capturing, image quality will be priority at all times, a faster shooting performance, a sensitivity range from ISO 200-25600 – which is perfect when wanting to shoot in low-light conditions; to record high-resolution 4K video; and to perform the rest of its powerful functions.


DCI and UHD 4K Video Recording

With the powerful 20.4MP MOS Senor and its powerful TruePic VIII Image Processor, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Mirrorless Camera allows you to record beautiful DCI (4096x2160) and UHD (3840x2160) 4K video. UHD 4K video recording is available in frame rates of up to 30 fps and a 102 Mb/s bit-rate; and with DCI – 24 fps frame rate is being used with an IPB compression and a 237 Mb/s bit rate. Not wanting to record large files? Simply switch over to recording Full HD 1080p or HD 720p.


121-Point All Cross-Type Phase-Detection Autofocus

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Camera sports an all cross-type sensor that features 121-points, which is not affected by subject patterning, which enables precision focusing. The Autofocus system provides high-precision all thanks to various information such as subject face, colour, and shape that’s been utilised to achieve this incredible and enhanced AF precision. It also provides superior tracking when recording video, ensuring that everything remains in focus; advanced Face/Eye tracking where human’s faces and eyes are automatically detected for accurate focusing.


Newly Developed 5-Axis Image Stabilisation

The compact Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Camera builds on a variety of advanced functions, and continues to better to its performance with the newly developed 5-Axis Image Stabilisation that’s been engineered to compensate a maximum of approx. 5.5 stops, and ensures image stabilisation with each and every single lens attached. Having this incorporated, the camera can correct roll blur, something that cannot be done with in-lens stabilisation, and it effectively reduces camera shake when doing telephoto photography and macro shooting. When paired with select lenses featuring image stabilisation, you can achieve shake compensation of up to 6.5 stops.


High-Performance 2.36m-dot 0.67x-Magnification OLED Viewfinder

The High-Performance 2.36m-dot 0.67x-magnification OLED Viewfinder provides users with vivid colours and a high-contrast display, allowing users to focus accurately on their shot. It also incorporates a long eyepoint that ensure superb visibility even when wearing glasses. The optical system is advanced enough to reduce distortion for a more natural view.


Intuitive 3.0-inch 1.04m-dot LCD Monitor

The intuitive 3.0” 1.04m-dot LCD Monitor makes it so much easier for photographers to frame shots accurately, providing a convenient operation with its menu navigation and image playback. The monitor features a vari-angle design – allowing you to shoot from a variety of angles. The advanced touchscreen also provides photographers to optimise the screen’s brightness and prioritise the frame rate when working in dark environments – which can be achieved in Live View Boost mode.


Rechargeable BLS-50 Rechargeable Battery

The included BLS-50 Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery will allow you to photograph up to 310 shots per charge.


Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Connectivity

The built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection enables wireless sharing directly from your Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Camera to your smartphone device, as well as remote control via the dedicated O.I.Share app which can be done on your iOS and Android device.


Pro Capture

Olympus has incorporated the Pro Capture function into the sophisticated Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Camera. This function captures split-second photo opportunities that time lag usually makes impossible. It will start recording 20MP images once the shutter button has been pressed in halfway, and then retain up to 14 frames of the most recent images once the shutter button has been fully pressed.


Art Filters & Scenes

Olympus has incorporated a variety of scenes and Art Filters, this will allow you to apply a variety of modes to your images, giving it a certain feel to the image or simply to correct the lighting of your image according to the environment you find yourself in. Featuring 22 Scene Modes such as People – which is ideal for portraits, landscapes, and children, Nightscape, Motion, Indoor, and a Close-up Mode. Art Filters include Pop Art, Soft Focus, Grain Film, Cross Process and many more filters to make your image look more creative.
