High image quality
Being exceptionally compact and lightweight, the E-M1 Mark III is super mobile while still offering high image quality and performance. The level of stabilization offered by this camera enables shooting in dark locations and during super-telephoto photography without a tripod, opening up new possibilities. In combination with the image processing engine TruePic IX and a 20.4 Megapixel Live MOS sensor, the 5-axis IS ensures minimal noise even at high-sensitivity settings and top-class image quality with minimal distortion up to the edges of the shot.
For users in need of higher resolutions, the 50MP Handheld High Res Shot feature makes it possible to capture approximately 50 Megapixel high-resolution images without using a tripod. The Tripod High Res Shot function allows for recording ultra high-resolution (approx. 80 Megapixel equivalent) RAW and JPEG images. Live ND is also included in this model - you can select the effect level from ND2 (one step) to ND32 (5 steps), and check the slow shutter effects in the viewfinder before capturing.
The rugged magnesium alloy body of the OM-D E-M1 Mark III features a dust, splash and freezeproof design to allow for shooting in any location and environment.
The lithium-ion battery BLH-1 can be fully charged in as little as two hours, when installed in the camera and attached to a power source via USB.
With Olympus’ advanced SSWF (Super Sonic Wave Filter) technology and a new sensor coating introduced with the OM-D E-M1X, dirt cannot stick to the sensor, reducing spots in images to 1/10th of that in conventional models. The high-durability shutter unit in the E-M1 Mark III clears 400,000 operation tests and therefore offers a high level of reliability.
High-speed, high-precision autofocus capabilities
The OM-D E-M1 Mark III is equipped with a 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor for focusing on various areas of the screen. It offers 75% vertical coverage and 80% horizontal coverage of the screen for a wide focusing area. Paired with an advanced AF algorithm, this feature can continually focus on fast-moving subjects with a high degree of precision.
A multi selector (as introduced with the E-M1X) makes it possible to quickly shift AF areas with your thumb while looking through the viewfinder. Because users can move the AF areas with the multi selector during sequential shooting, it is possible to accurately focus even on subjects that move erratically, as e.g. often found in wildlife photography. The AF target loop setting is also added, which, based on user selection, either stops the AF target at the edge of the screen or moves it to the opposite edge.
