Best-in-class 5-axis Image Stabilization
The OM-D E-M10 Mark II is the first entry-level interchangeable lens camera with the same 5-axis image stabilization system found in Olympus’s critically acclaimed high-end models. Camera shake is the number one cause of blurred images. With 5-axis IS, the problem is solved – your night scenes, portraits, action sequences and macro close-ups will be incredibly sharp. You can even shoot hand-held video on the move that won’t make you dizzy when you play it back!
OLED Electronic Viewfinder
Viewfinders are a good alternative to back-of-camera LCD monitors, especially in bright light. The OLED electronic viewfinder on the OM-D E-M10 Mark II is large and bright, with 2.36 million pixels, so it’s easy to see what you want to shoot. You can also see any changes you’ve made to the camera settings like aspect ratio and art effects without moving your eye away from the viewfinder.
F.A.S.T. Touch AutoFocus
Life moves fast – and the OM-D E-M10 Mark II is designed to keep up. Touch AF lets you focus and release the shutter simply by tapping the area of the screen you want to zero in on, with virtually no time lag. And the free Olympus Image Share application allows you to control the camera from your smart phone – with the same hyper-fast autofocus.
8.5fps Burst Shooting
The OM-D E-M10 Mark II’s high-speed sequential burst shooting function works in perfect synchronicity with its lightning-quick autofocus to capture exactly the right expression on a restless toddler or fidgety pet. And with a maximum speed of 8.5 shots per second, even a fast-moving subject is rendered in a series of sharply detailed images.
Have you ever been somewhere where the sounds a camera makes will intrude and ruin your chances for a great shot? The OM-D E-M10 Mark II’s silent shutter feature eliminates this problem, enabling you to document the serenity of a quiet scene. It also comes in handy for discreet street shooting and photojournalism.
Sharing Made Easy
A big part of the fun of photography is sharing your work with friends. The OM-D E-M10 Mark II offers best-in-class WiFi connectivity and the free Olympus Image Share app to help you send that shot of the gigantic banana split you had last night into cyberspace. You can also control the E-M10 Mark II remotely from your phone.
A Lens for Every Situation
Family of 20 M. Zuiko all digital lenses and growing! Find a perfect lens for every shooting style and budget. Street shooters may enjoy a compact 17 millimeter f1.8, while outdoor enthusiasts may appreciate a long zoom 75-300 millimeter lens for wildlife photography.
A Camera to Grow With
The OM-D E-M10 Mark II is a great camera for beginners. Its easy-to-use iAuto reads the scene and adjusts the settings – you just focus and trip the shutter. However, you can really grow as a photographer with this camera thanks to a variety of shooting modes (aperture priority, shutter priority, full manual) and advanced tools like Live Guide, which shows you how different settings affect the image before you take the shot.
You can experiment with one of 14 Art Filters (including Grainy Film and Partial Color) or use Photo Story to create a collage of images. And preview all of your creative settings on screen before you shoot thanks to the Live View feature.
The OM-D E-M10 Mark II is a videographer’s dream. It offers five Full HD variable frame rates (60, 50, 30, 25 and 24 fps) and intuitive touchscreen operation that lets you alter settings on the fly while you’re recording. You can move the autofocus point, change the exposure, aperture or shutter speed, and even apply creative touches like Art Fade and Old Film Effect.
Video CLIPS Feature
Sharing large video files can be a problem. The OM-D E-M10 Mark II solves it with the innovative CLIPS feature, which enables you to shoot short video clips (1, 2, 4 or 8 seconds) and combine them in your preferred sequence – in the camera. You’ll end up with files portable enough for email or posting to social media.
A flash is essential for fill lighting and properly exposed portraits. It also optimizes the autofocus function when light is at a premium – but do you really want to carry around the extra equipment? No need to do so with the OM-D E-M10 Mark II, which boasts a convenient built-in flash.

I shoot Nikon DSLRs professionally and, until now, for personal use, too, but am tired of lugging them around in a bag that hurts my shoulder, or even the Spider holster (recommended) on my belt. I wanted a small, portable camera that delivered good image quality. So far, I'd say this little Olympus delivers.
I added the 14-42mm EZ lens in order to create as compact a package as possible. (BTW, this is a great little lens and will probably suffice for most casual use. But the emphasis is on "little." For a guy who's used to the usual holding method of cradling a DSLR and working the zoom with my thumb and fingers, this feels really cramped, as the zoom ring is less than a half-inch wide.)
One thing I was concerned about with the micro 4/3 system is the low-light/high-ISO performance as compared to full-frame (or even crop sensor) cameras. Again, so far, I am impressed. Olympus seems to do a great job with its jpeg processing, and files even up to ISO 2000 are quite usable. (I haven't even tried shooting RAW yet.)
Another great feature of the EM-10 is the in-body stabilization. Just experimenting in my darkened living room, I captured a sharp image, handheld with a one-second (not a typo - one full second) exposure. I'm sure it was a bit lucky, but the best I can usually do with my expensive Nikon VR lenses is about 1/10 sec.
As other reviewers here and elsewhere have mentioned, the Olympus menus are kind of confusing, but if you take the time to learn them (use your manual), there are a ton of customization options that will help you adapt the camera to your shooting style.
Last, but not least, I am falling in love with the electronic viewfinder. The ability to see exactly what your final exposure will look like *before* you press the shutter button is a revelation. (Yes, DSLRs can do this through live-view, but most such implementations are clunky and handicap the camera's autofocus performance.)
So now that I've decided this little camera is a keeper, I'm starting to look at higher quality Olympus and Panasonic lenses. The good news there is that the M 4/3 lenses are MUCH less expensive than their DSLR counterparts.
Picture quality is exceptionally sharp. It takes great pictures. the image stabilization is great. I have a lot of problem taking pictures with my other DSLR due to the weight, but with this, I can shoot all day. The 5 axis stabilization is great. Took some videos and it came out very very well with minimal or no shaking at all. This camera has almost all the bells and whistles the bigger brothers EM5 II or the EM1 has for a fraction of the price.
As for the built quality of the camera. it's certainly has a premium feel. Very solid. however the batter door feels very flimsy. I don't understand why they build the whole camera so solid and used a flimsy plastic battery door. it feels like it's going to break every time I open it to charge the battery or pull my SD card. The grip is not as good as on other camera. The Sony A6000 has a better grip. The strap eye lid / Strap Holder if you will seems to get in the way of the hand holding the camera as well as trying to push the shutter button.
The functionality of this camera is my biggest issue. not that it's bad, it's because there is just too many functions in this camera. The menu is very complicated, not easy to navigate. For someone like me who is no professional. I have a very hard time understanding many of these functions. I'm still reading the instruction booklet after a week of using it. However, despite the complexity of the menu and functions, this camera can be fully customize every single button and dials. I certainly would give it a 5 star if the menu is not so complex
I just absolutely love this camera. Oh, on an other note. if you are looking for a carrying case for these mirrorless cameras, go buy a Sony bag. I looked around and found the Sony camera bag is perfect for a camera, a zoom lens, a battery charger and a portable external flash.
After a month of using the camera, I can tell you I obsolutly love it. I also purchased a prime lens, the 17mm f1.8. it's very fast, great for low light, but even just the kit lens works great. the image stabilization is truly awesome. that where most of my problem with the older camera. my hands tents to shake slightly and the picture comes out blurry. with this camera, I get sharp pictures. I even took a picture of running water, at 1 sec shutter, handheld and it comes out great.
Great compact size camera
great image stabilization
Original Battery is very poor, had to purchase some after market battery and works 3-4 times as long.
The battery door and the port cover still feels flimsy
The EVF sensor is a little too sensitive.
The function menu is not friendly
So I have this camera for some times now and really been using it all over the place. I just love the size and portability compare to my previous Canon 60D. I have learn a lot with this camera. It take great pictures. I love it so much, I end up purchasing a M.Zuiko 17mm f1.8 Prime lens for it. I purchased Panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens first, but the AF wasn't that great in low light, so I sold that and traded for the 17mm. Love it. I love the camera, I take it everywhere because. However as much as I love this camera. the longer you have it, the more small issues you find. Not major. I still love the camera.
For One, the battery is worst then expected. I end up purchasing 2 more higher capacity battery for it. they do hold more capacity than the OEM battery for a fraction of the price.
I found that at ISO 1600, noise really started to show. I have use it in many occasion in the evening outing and used different ISO setting. and at 1600 and higher, you can really see the grain showing. I have contacted Olympus and they ask me to send them some samples and they sent me a link by on how to setup your camera by Robin Wong. Instructions to setup EM5 Mark II, it's really the same as the EM10 II. What's interesting was before I have my camera's noise filter set to high and noise reduction set to on and I still get a bit of grains, but according to Robin (the Olympus Professional) he suggest to turn off the noise filter and noise reduction to auto. Well see that Olympus said after they view my pictures. I taken some pictures at my grandmother's birthday dinner and and to print a few 8x10 photos for her and I was not very impress with the noise level. I am attaching a image of the product image taken at good low light, not bad low light and if you zoom in a little, you can see the grains.
Link to Robin Wong's review and setup. Check it out, some setting are helpful.
After using it for a couple of months, trying to learn the ins and out of the camera, I have master a good part of the camera, but even with all these learning. I still think the menu is very complicated like many people does. there's just too many level and too many features. you use it, but next time you want to go back to it, you'll forget where it is again. But what's interesting is if it's not the complex menus, I might not have learn so much about photography. I been youtubeing and web searching all the little features little by little like the Robin Wong's link. it does teach you a lot.
Oh, by the way, there is one thing I absolutely love about the camera and can't live without it is the super control panel. it's almost everything you need is there.
