Olympus’ OM-D E-M10 Mark IV Is An Entry-Level Camera With Professional Traits

Olympus has been making a wide range of intuitive camera systems for well over a century, and while the company announced that it was selling its lauded camera division at the start of 2020, it seems that the outfit still some wind left in its sails. As it turns out, the transcendental imaging brand has revealed its latest project — a pint-sized, micro-four-thirds camera dubbed the OM-D E-M10 Mark IV.

As you might suspect, the Mark IV is the fourth iteration of the company’s lauded E-M10 camera. While the device is — and always has been — aimed toward the entry-level consumer, it packs quite the punch when it comes to functional capability. Aside from its portable, lightweight demeanor, the camera also boasts five-axis in-body image stabilization, 4K/30p video capture, a 2.36M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder, and an updated, 20-megapixel Live MOS sensor for sharp, dynamic stills. When paired with the E-M10 MKIV’s TruePic VIII processor, this contemporary arsenal provides shooters with improved face and eye autofocus tracking, as well as a 15 frame-per-second continuous shooting mode. The best part? The entire package weighs in at under a pound, making the fourth-generation E-M10 an attractive proposition for those who enjoy “run and gun” photo capture. Head to Olympus’ website to pick up one of your own for $700.
