Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III review

Our favorite travel camera gets 4K video and more

5 Star Rating

Digital Camera World Verdict

The E-M10 Mark III adds 4K, better autofocus and revised controls to our favourite travel camera, though the 16MP sensor stays the same. It's small, powerful and really rather good.

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

The ‘old’ OM-D E-M10 Mark II used to come first in our list of top travel cameras, and Olympus says it will continue for now alongside this new Mark III version, which is really more of an update and a refresh rather than a brand new camera.

Update: The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is now getting hard to find new in some territories as it's been replaced by the superior OM-D E-M10 Mark IV. We would definitely recommend the newer model, which is still pretty affordable. Read our Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV review.
