The tilting screen on the Olympus E-M10 helps frame and review shots on-the-go.
The Olympus E-M10 is light and portable, and it looks great in your hand. Delve below the surface, and you'll see it's got the goods where it counts, as well. A 16-megapixel CMOS sensor is paired with the powerful TruePic VII processor for precise colors rendered at high resolution. The E-M10 uses internal image stabilization designed along three axis points—yaw, pitch and roll—to reduce blurring when you and your camera are moving. If you're shooting your sister's stage debut, the camera's three-dimensional 81-point autofocus grid will keep the focus where it should be, whether she's moving left, right, up, down; closer to the lens or farther away. Keep track of your scene by looking through the OLED viewfinder or watching the tilting 3" high-definition touchscreen—either way you'll know exactly what you're getting when you press the shutter button.
The E-M10 can take beautiful, creative photographs. And you don't have to be an expert to make it happen. Automatic modes allow the camera to choose the appropriate aperture, shutter speed and sensitivity while you're learning your craft. When you're ready to take more creative control, you can choose which parts of the process you want to control manually at any time. If you know you'll be in the same shooting environment for a while, preset white-balance modes for sun, clouds, shadows and even fluorescent lighting are pre-programmed for your convenience. Built-in Picture Modes let you apply custom filters on the spot, creating artistic effects that can take your photos and videos to the next level.
You may not want to wait until later to upload your photos to the web, and with the E-M10, you don't have to. Just find a Wi-Fi hot spot and use the built-in wireless function to connect with your computer. Then you can archive, edit or share on social media instantly. The E-M10 also features geotagging, so you can put the relevant geographical information into the file—it's great for vacations and adventures. You'll never forget where you were when you took the shot.
The E-M10 kit includes the high-quality M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II R lens. If you're bird-watching from a distance, and you don't want to frighten your quarry, this lens will bring the image to you, in living color and high-definition detail. It's an ideal starter lens, so you can start shooting as soon as you're ready.
These digital cameras combine the creative options of a DSLR with portability that's more like that of a point-and-shoot. Their automatic modes will help you take striking pictures from day one without having to be an expert. However, like DSLRs, mirrorless cameras have interchangeable lenses, and advanced control and processing. You can explore these features for even better results as you take time to learn more about the hobby. Cameras in this class have large image sensors for beautifully detailed pictures, but their mirrorless design means the camera bodies and matching lenses can be smaller, lighter, and more portable great for snapping memorable pics when you're on the move.
This is a light, fast, well-appointed camera. It offers lots of features and the 4/3'rds lens system has a wide range of choices. I thought about the Sony A6000 but didn't go with it because of its limited lens choices, much higher price and less facile screen when compared to the E-M10. The E-M10's photo quality is excellent, better than I thought possible.
Pros: Fun, easy to use, very advanced mirrorless camera. Crutchfield made the purchase simple and fair.
Really nice camera. Takes great pictures, the controls are perfect for when you want to shoot in Manual, and it's the perfect size for carrying around. You'll probably never lug your DSLR around again. No real complaints with this product.
Excellent service, fast delivery!
This is a great camera, it take very good pictures in daylight as well as in low light. It is relatively easy to play around with different settings using the dials on the body.
Pros: Clear pictures with no distortion. Small and lightweight but not too small for my hands (I am over 6 feet tall). Solid build quality.
Cons: None so far (I have not taken any videos).
I have been using a Nikon D7100 and wanted something smaller but with good image quality for an everyday carry around camera. This little camera takes just about as good an image as my Nikon. Small, light and extremely fun to use. I do recommend it very highly.
Pros: Great controls, easy to learn. Great image quality.
Cons: Does not come with a printed out owners manual. I would much prefer that to a PDF copy.

Image Pickup Device: The E-M10 uses a 4/3" Live MOS sensor with approximately 17,200,000 total pixels and 16,050,000 effective pixels. This is the same sensor used in Olympus DSLRs, and is 8 times larger than the typical sensor found in the average point-and-shoot camera. The Live MOS sensor is complimented by Olympus' new TruePic VII Image Processor with Fine Detail Processing II technology for increased ISO sensitivity and fast auto focusing.
Dust Reduction System: The E-M10's Dust Reduction System includes a Supersonic Wave Filter to eliminate dust particles on the image sensor. The self-cleaning sensor unit silently vibrates 30,000 times per second, ensuring clear, spot-free images.

The 1,040,000-dot display can be tilted up to 80° or down to a 50° angle for low- or high-angle shots. Touch navigation lets you control the camera in both the shooting and playback modes with the touch of a finger.
Electronic Viewfinder: In addition to the 3" monitor, the E-M10 has a built-in, high-resolution Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) with a 120 fps refresh rate. The 1,440,000 dot EVF provides a bright clear view of your subject with a choice of four display modes (information, histogram, level gauge, image only). An eye sensor next to the viewfinder automatically switches between the EVF and the 3" monitor. There is also a diopter to let you adjust the viewfinder to your eyesight.

The smartphone must be running the Olympus Image Share (OI.Share) application, available from Google Play for Android devices (version 2.3 and up) and from iTunes for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (iOS 5 or later). Up to 4 devices can be simultaneously connected via QR code. In addition, you can add location information to your images when using a smartphone with a GPS function. The wireless LAN function on the camera cannot be used to connect to a home or public access point.
Image Recording Formats: The E-M10 records digital still images in JPEG format, as well as RAW uncompressed images. RAW images can be processed into JPEG files in the camera or using the supplied software. You can record up to 30 seconds of audio with still images in WAV format. Movies are recorded in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and AVI Motion JPEG with 16-bit PCM stereo audio at a 48 kHz sampling rate.
Note: The E-M10 can record 3D photos in MPO format when used with the optional H-FT012 3D lens from Panasonic.

3-Axis Image Stabilization: The E-M10 features a 3-axis sensor-shift Image Stabilization system to compensate for camera shake in low-light situations or when using a telephoto lens. The E-M10 compensates for three types of movement--pitch, yaw, and roll. You can choose from the following IS modes:
Shooting Modes: Using the top-mounted Mode Dial, you can choose from the following Shooting Modes:
Picture Modes (Processing Options): The camera lets you select image tones to create unique image effects. For each picture mode, you can fine-adjust the image parameters, such as contrast and sharpness. The Picture Modes include:
Focus Modes: The E-M10 features a fast, contrast type auto focus system. You can select Single-AF (focuses when shutter button is pressed halfway), Continuous-AF (always focusing), or Manual (turning the focus ring). You can also fine-adjust the focus manually by turning the focus ring after AF is performed in the S-AF mode. If you have a moving subject, you can use the AF Tracking feature. In this mode, the camera will track and maintain focus on the subject while the shutter button is held halfway.
Auto-Focus Target: The camera has 35 Auto-Focus targets for focusing on the subject. In the All-Target AF mode, the camera automatically chooses from the full set of the 35 AF targets. In the Single-Target AF mode, you can manually select one AF target for accurately focusing on the subject after composing the shot. The Group Target mode lets you select a group of nine AF targets, and the camera chooses the specific target for focusing.
ISO Settings: The sensitivity can be set automatically or manually. The manual ISO sensitivity ranges from LOW (equivalent to approximately ISO 100), ISO 200 to ISO 25600, with selectable ISO steps of 1 EV or 1/3 EV.
White Balance: Color reproduction depends upon light conditions. You can choose from 4 options for setting the white balance:
Sequential Shooting: In addition to shooting single frames, the E-M10 can also shoot images continuously. When Sequential H is selected, photos are taken at approximately 8 frames per second for as long as the shutter button is pressed. Focus, exposure, and white balance are fixed at the first shot. Sequential L takes photos at about 3.5 fps while the shutter button is held down. Focus and exposure are fixed according to the options selected for AF mode and AEL/AFL.
Self-Timer: The Self-Timer lets you take pictures after a preset amount of time. You can choose from 2 seconds or 12 seconds. You can also set up a custom self-timer, choosing the number of frames (1-10), time of delay to first shot (1-30 seconds), and interval between multiple shots (0.5, 1, 2, 3).
Bulb Shooting: The E-M10 can take extra long exposures with bulb shooting. When the camera is set to Bulb, the shutter remains open as long as the shutter button stays pressed. You can set a maximum exposure time for bulb shooting between 1 and 30 minutes. Use of a tripod and the optional RM-UC1 remote cable are highly recommended for bulb shooting.
Time-Lapse Photography: The camera can be set to shoot automatically with a set time lapse, to be viewed as individual photos or as a time-lapse movie. This feature is only available in the P/A/S/M shooting modes. You can set the total number of frames (1-999), start waiting time (00:00:01 to 24:59:59), interval time (00:00:01 to 24:59:59), and turn on/off time lapse movie. If either the start waiting time or shooting interval is set to longer than 1 minute 30 seconds, the monitor and camera power will turn off after 1 minute. Ten seconds before shooting, the power will automatically turn on again.
Flash Modes: The E-M10 comes with a pop-up flash. You can select from several flash modes: Auto, Fill in flash, Red-eye reduction flash, Slow synchronization (1st curtain), Slow sync (1st curtain) with Red-eye reduction, Slow synchronization (2nd curtain), Manual flash, and Flash off. Some flash modes are not available for all shooting modes. You can also manually set the intensity of the flash to full, 1/4, 1/16, or 1/64 power.
External Flash: The E-M10 has a hot shoe for attaching an optional external flash unit, such as the Olympus FL-14, FL-20, FL-36R, FL-50R, FL-300R, and FL-600R. These external flash units communicate with the camera, allowing you to control the camera's flash modes with various available flash control modes, such as TTL-AUTO. The units listed above have a remote control mode that can be used for wireless flash photography.
Bracketing: To increase your chances of getting the perfect exposure in difficult shooting conditions, you can set the camera to take a number of photos at different exposure values for each frame. Frames are shot at optimum exposure, plus pictures adjusted in the opposite directions of exposure. You can perform bracketing in the following ways:
Metering Modes: There are 5 ways to measure the subject brightness:
Face Detection: The camera will detect people's faces in the frame and adjust the focus and metering automatically.
Multiple Exposure: The E-M10 lets you create multiple exposures in a single frame. Methods include: two frames combined as one, portions of one frame merged with portions of another, or RAW frames overlaid in the playback mode.
Digital Level: To ensure that your pictures are level perfect, the camera has a digital level gauge that can be viewed in the monitor and the electronic viewfinder.
Photo Playback: You can play back images one at a time, or in an index display of 4, 9, 25, or 100. You can also display images recorded on the memory card by date (calendar display). While in single image playback, the image can be magnified to 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x, 10x, or 14x for a closer look.
Playback On TV: The E-M10 allows you to play back your still images or movies on a TV. The camera has a Micro HDMI (Type D) output for connecting to an HDTV. Output resolution can be set to 1080i, 720p, and 480p. No Micro HDMI-to-HDMI cable is included. In addition, you can connect the camera to a TV with composite video, using the optional CB-AVC3 AV cable connected to the camera's multi-connector.
HDMI Control: When HDMI Control is set to "On", the camera can be operated by a TV remote control when it is connected to the TV via HDMI. The TV must support HDMI control. During single-frame playback, you can display or hide the information display and the index display.
PictBridge Printing Capability: Using the supplied USB cable, you can connect this camera directly to a PictBridge-compliant printer, regardless of brand.
Power Options: The E-M10 is powered by the supplied BLS-5 Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery (7.2 volts 1150mAh). The battery charges in approximately 3.5 hours in the supplied BCS-5 battery charger. The BLS-5 battery is good for approximately 320 shots on a single charge.
14-42mm Lens: The E-M10 Zoom Lens Kit includes the M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II R wide-angle zoom lens. The 14-42mm focal length is equivalent to 28-84mm in 35mm photography.
MSC Mechanism: The lens includes a motorized zoom mechanism for smooth, quiet zooming while shooting movies. The MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism is enhanced by a newly developed linear motor drive that enables faster, quieter focusing.
