The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV is the entry-level model in the company's DSLR-style lineup of Micro Four Thirds cameras (the PEN models, such as the E-PL10, are rangefinder-style). It's a step up from the beginner-focused E-PL series, offering more controls, better build quality and a broader feature set. It sports a 20MP Four Thirds sensor, in-body image stabilization, flip-down touchscreen with a simple interface and 4K video capture.

Key specifications

  • 20 Megapixel Live MOS sensor (Four Thirds)
  • TruePic VIII processor
  • 5-axis in-body image stabilization (up to 4.5 stops)
  • 121-point contrast-detect AF system
  • Flip-down touchscreen display
  • Electronic viewfinder
  • 4.5 fps burst shooting w/AF
  • USB charging
  • Wi-Fi + Bluetooth
  • 360 shots per charge (with LCD)

The E-M10 IV will be available in two kits in your choice of silver or black: body only for $699 and with the very compact 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ lens for $799.
