Review summary from DPReview

DPReview: Olympus OM-D E-M10 overview
DPReview Gold Award March 2014
It holds its own against entry-level DSLRs in terms of image quality and handling, and beats them all in terms of direct control.

Conclusion

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 is positioned as the entry-level OM-D camera, though it's just as capable in most ways as its more advanced siblings. It borrows the E-M5's impressive imaging capabilities, without the weatherproofing, and adds built-in Wi-Fi. The E-M10 offers an impressive level of direct control in a camera body that's light and compact.

Reasons to buy

  • Raw files offer a good deal of post-processing latitude
  • In-body image stabilization works with all lenses
  • Quick, responsive AF
  • Dual control wheels and customizable buttons
  • Wi-Fi connectivity and remote shooting

Things to consider

  • JPEG processing muddy at ISO 3200 and up
  • Video quality not s good as the best of its peers
  • Grip is a bit shallow
  • Awkwardly-placed on/off switch
  • Memory card slot blocked with use of tripod plate

Suggested for

Street photographers, students, those who want lots of customization or want a camera they can grow into.

Product Description

The new EM-10 boasts a powerful TruePic VII image processor, a large, interactive electronic viewfinder, built-in flash and Wi-Fi, a warp-speed AF system that allows sequential shooting at 8fps (yes, eight!), and much more. The sensor, image processor and lens technology are the core of any digital camera. The EM-10 ups the ante by pairing a 16MP Live MOS sensor with our most powerful TruePic VII image processor for extraordinary resolution and accurate color rendition. The OM-D EM-10"s partner in photographic excellence is the acclaimed Olympus M.ZUIKO lens system, a family of professional-grade glass with digital optics that delivers unsurpassed resolution and overall image quality. Add 3-axis in-body image stabilization that compensates for horizontal and vertical angular shifts as well as rolling, and you have a camera that captures incredibly sharp images and video, yet is compact enough to bring just about anywhere.

BUILT TO A HIGHER STANDARD.

The E-M10 boasts a powerful TruePic™ VII image processor, a large, interactive electronic viewfinder, built-in flash and WiFi, a warp-speed AF system that allows sequential shooting at 8fps (yes, eight!), and much more. So ditch the bulky DSLR and lighten up with the E-M10.

E-M10 OM-D Image Quality

Unprecedented Image Quality That Exceeds Others in its Class
The lens technology, sensor and image processor are the core of any digital camera. The OM-D E-M10’s partner in photographic excellence is the acclaimed Olympus M.ZUIKO lens system, a family of professional-grade glass that delivers unsurpassed resolution and overall image quality. The E-M10 ups the ante by pairing a 16MP Live MOS sensor with our most powerful TruePic VII image processor for extraordinary resolution and accurate color rendition. Add 3-axis in-body image stabilization that compensates for horizontal and vertical angular shifts (yaw/pitch) as well as camera shake along the optical axis (roll), and you have a camera that captures incredibly sharp images and video, yet is compact enough to bring just about anywhere.

Lens Options and Flashes for Every Conceivable Shooting Situation
Only Olympus offers such a wide array of portable, professional grade lenses. You can choose from no less than 17 Micro Four Third M.ZUIKO lenses -- an impressive assortment of fast primes, telephoto zooms and macros - to support your unique photographic style. A number of versatile external flashes (with wireless remote control capabilities) also play well with the E-M10 for situations that require additional lighting.

Design That Blends Classic Cool and Modern Performance
We believe that a go-anywhere camera designed for avid photographers should feel and look solid. That’s why we built the E-M10’s slim, elegant body out of metal, and tricked it out with meticulously engineered metal parts. (The 2x2 dial controls are particularly sweet!) The E-M10 just feels right, substantial yet perfectly balanced. It’s only fitting that a beautiful camera like this takes such beautiful photos.

Keep Your Eye on the Prize with the E-M10’s Large, Easy-to-See EVF
Shooting at eye level is comfortably familiar. And when you get a live view of exposure, white balance and other useful information, and the ability to control highlights, shadows, colors and more – as you do with the E-M10’s electronic viewfinder – you’re in position to take some of the best photos of your life. You can also apply various framing grids and a leveling guide for composing better photos and even monitor video recording!

The high-res EVF (1.44 million pixels) provides 1.15x magnification, double-speed 120fps refresh rate and adaptive brightness technology, which automatically adjusts brightness to the optimum setting for a more natural display.

A Wealth of Built-In Features
The E-M10 is a marvel of thoughtful design and useful functionality. Built-in Wi-Fi for easy image sharing and wireless control, built-in flash for filling in the shadows and numerous creative tools, tiltable LCD monitor with touch screen - there's more, but we don't have to do into all the impressive details here! It's not what you'd call inexpensive, but the value is clear.

Life Moves Fast…and the E-M10 is Designed to Keep Pace
You might want to wear your running shoes when using the E-M10. High-speed sequential shooting – at a best-in-class 8fps – and super high-speed FAST AF technology ensure that you won’t miss the shot no matter how quickly your subject is moving. In fact, the autofocus tracking function is better than ever thanks to enhancements to the group target Continuous AF function. The E-M10 also provides an 81-point AF grid that covers the entire image frame, giving you more focus options than basic DSLRs.

With So Many Creative Tools, Finding the Shot Is Only the Beginning
Focus peaking in manual focus mode. Color Creator. HDR and HDR bracketing. Twelve Art Filters and nine Art Effects. Photo Story (including a new Zoom In/Out theme). Photo and Movie Capture (high-quality stills while shooting a movie – at an insane 5fps in P/A/S/M mode). Live Composite Mode for capturing starscapes intuitively. The E-M10 offers you an incredible array of easy-to-use creative tools that can transform your photos from excellent to spectacular.
