OM-D E-M1 MK III and 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens Summary

The new and improved Olympus OM-D E-M1 MK III micro four thirds body has a host of new features to fit a wide variety of photography applications. Together with the included 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens, they make for a professional all-round, wide-angle zoom kit combination. A 20.4 Megapixel Live MOS sensor has been employed together with a new TruePic IX processor for ever faster operation.

Full weather sealing has been added to the camera body, which is constructed from magnesium alloy for durability. This meets the requirements of both enthusiasts and professionals who need this level of resilience from their equipment and are out shooting in all conditions.

image stabilisation has been updated in the OM-D E-M1 MK III body, with up to 7.5 EV stops of compensation when combined with compatible lenses, such as the included 12-40mm. The kit lens delivers exceptional wide-angle images at high resolution, suitable for a range of general shooting purposes. New features include the 50MP High Res Shot for capturing high-resolution shots without a tripod and the Tripod High Res Shot function for use with still images giving approximately 80 megapixel equivalent. This will prove invaluable to those seeking the very highest resolution still images.

Adding to the vast array of features, the autofocus system now has a 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor, which allows for 75% vertical coverage and 80% horizontal coverage of the frame, applicable to both still and moving subjects. AF/AE tracking works in conjunction with the rapid 18fps of continuous shooting, using either the rear LCD screen or viewfinder and 4K video has also been included with advanced recording features.

OM-D E-M1 MK III and 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO in detail

Body Design

The magnesium alloy body is dust, splash and freeze proofed for use in a variety of environments. The ergonomic body design is a blend of manual controls, with dials and buttons easily accessible for all camera settings. The 3 inch rear, Vari-angle touchscreen LCD, is an easy way to access all camera functionality, along with tapped focus points, for an additional way of working.

image Stabilisation

The 5-axis sync. image stabilisation system uses sensor shift to provide a world-class 7.5 EV steps of compensation, with a compatible lens. Stabilisation modes are available, through both the EVF and LCD screen, including Five-dimensional, vertical or horizontal activation and automatic modes. low shutter speeds can be achieved which will benefit shooting in dark locations or with super telephoto focal lengths. Compatible lenses further increase stabilisation options, with a huge range available from either Park Camera's in store or online facilities.

autofocus system

A TTL phase detection and contrast detection system has been added, featuring 121 AF points, with selection modes for a variety of applications.. A cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor increases AF accuracy and speed, with a 75% vertical and 80% horizontal coverage of the frame. Continuous shooting at 18fps make sure you don't miss a moment, with a multi selector joystick available for quickly selecting AF areas.

Automatic focusing options come in a variety of modes, which can be selected depending on the subject. Face Priority/Eye Priority AF is faster and more accurate due to the speedier processor and improved AF algorithms. Eyes and small faces can now be easily tracked with ever more precision, with automatic detection modes also including Starry Sky AF and the SSWF (Super Sonic wave Filter) eliminates dust from the sensor.

4K Video

Video facilities on the E-M1 MK III come with highly detailed 4K video at 30p, with HD quality available at 120p. Hand-held video has never looked smoother with an image stabilisation mode designed specifically for video recording. advanced video features are also incorporated, which include OM-Log400 for more detail in shadows and highlights, while a View Assist function works in conjunction with live view mode to convert the colour gamut to Full HD for viewing on standard displays.

Additional Features

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 MK III allows the user to process images without the need for additional software. images can be processed in camera with a variety of looks, which include Black & White, Sepia, trimming and e-Portrait, while a wide range of art filters can be changed on-the-fly, such as Vintage, Grainy Film and Pop Art.

A 3.5mm microphone  and 3.5mm Earphone jack have been included for further monitoring of audio.

Our Verdict

The new and improved TruePic IX processor brings faster performance across the board, from start-up times, to ever faster AF performance. The four thirds, 20.4MP sensor has all the resolution you need for high-quality prints, along with finely detailed 4K video recording. This positions the OM-D E-M1 MK III as a real hybrid option for photographers who also create video content on a regular basis.

The weatherproofed body design will feel very familiar to DSLR and previous Olympus users, having an ample grip, along with a good balance of external dials and buttons for a user-friendly ergonomic feel. The tilting rear touchscreen benefits both stills and video, for extreme angle images and for setting the ideal viewing angle.

The autofocus system now has 121-points working seamlessly with compatible lenses, with AF points selected with the rear touchscreen or through the electronic viewfinder. Intelligent focusing modes lock onto a variety of subjects, including Face Priority/Eye Priority AF, Starry Sky AF and the SSWF (Super Sonic Wave Filter) makes for an efficient method of keeping the sensor clean at all times.

The 4K video functionality provides crisp footage with lots of detail, further enhanced with image stabilisation system. Additional functionalities have been included to provide a final rendition to images, useful as an all-round imaging solution from the enthusiast upwards.
