Olympus OM-D E-M1 MKIII
OM-D E-M1 Mark III Advanced Mirrorless SLR Camera Body (black)
Introducing the OM-D E-M1 Mk III, an advanced system of innovative technology and features designed to forever change your photography. Up to 18 frames per second sequential shooting with precision C-AF Tracking. 121 Cross-Type On-Chip Phase Detection AF points. Up to 7.5 shutter speed steps of compensation with powerful in-body image stabilization. It’s all enclosed in a magnesium alloy weatherproof body that weighs a mere 580 grams. Paired with the superior resolution of M.Zuiko PRO lenses, the E-M1 Mark III will deliver brilliant imagery that’s coveted by professionals everywhere.
High Image Quality
With the new image processing engine, TruePic IX, combined with its 20.4 Megapixel Live MOS sensor deliver minimal noise even at high-sensitivity settings. This model boasts top-class image quality in the interchangeable lens camera class with minimal distortion to the edges of the shot. Improved AF algorithms and high resolution, high speed performance allow for features such as Handheld High Res Shot, Live ND, Starry Sky AF and improved face/eye priority AF.
50MP Handheld High Res Shot makes it possible to capture high-resolution images without the need for a tripod. Tripod High Res Shot is also available for recording ultra-high-resolution approximately 80 Megapixel equivalent JPEG images. Live ND, which is highly regarded on the OM-D E-M1X, is also included on this model, creating a slow shutter effect without the need for a physical ND filter.
Pro Capture mode makes it possible to record scenes that are difficult to capture due to time lag in the subjects’ reactions or camera operation time lag. Recording begins upon the half shutter release, capturing up to 35 frames retroactively from the point of the full shutter release. Because there is no blackout during shooting, it is possible to keep an eye on subject movement while pressing the shutter button.
Lightweight Weatherproof Construction
The magnesium alloy body of the OM-D E-M1 Mark III features advanced weatherproof construction, resulting in dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof performance. Users can enjoy shooting in the harshest condition without ever worrying about weather or location. Avoid extra retouching due to dirt and dust on the sensor.
The Lithium-ion Battery BLH-1 can be fully charged in as little as two hours when charged in the camera via a USB-C PD (Power Delivery) compatible charger of up to 100W. It is also possible to power the camera via a portable USB-C PD power bank or battery pack allowing the photographer to shoot for long durations, especially convenient for astrophotography or photographing in cold locations.
Accuracy Autofocus System
Starry Sky AF, which is new for the OM-D E-M1 Mark III, is a feature that will revolutionize the world of astrophotography. In the past, photographers have traditionally relied on manual focusing. A new algorithm was developed to offer accurate focusing even on the tiniest stars shining in the night sky, enabling ultra- high-precision autofocusing that has been admired even among professional astrophotographers. Thanks to the powerful image stabilization, this feature makes handheld astrophotography possible using a wide angle lens. Accuracy Priority uses a fine-tuned focus scan and is effective for shooting specific stars with telephoto lenses.
Thanks in part to the new TruePic IX image processing engine, Face / Eye Priority AF, which automatically detects and focuses on people’s faces and eyes, is now more advanced, dramatically improving both detection accuracy and tracking performance by offering higher processing capabilities and improved AF algorithms, keeping stable focusing on a subject even in the scenes where face detection was difficult in the past, such as sides of faces. It is also now possible to use either the buttons or touch operations to select faces when shooting still images or videos, and detection on or off can be changed with the touch of a single button.
A multi selector joystick makes it possible to quickly shift AF areas with your thumb while looking through the viewfinder. Since users can move the AF areas with the multi selector even during sequential shooting, it is possible to accurately focus even on subjects that move erratically.
Various Creative Features
Live Composite is included with the OM-D E-M1 Mark III. This feature makes it possible to check exposure status in Live View in real time. In-body Fisheye Compensation allows the user to remove the distortion created by a fisheye lens providing more wide-angle creative options. Keystone Compensation applies trapezoidal compensation and perspective enhancement simultaneously, providing the functionality of a tilt/shift lens. Anti-Flicker Shooting (mechanical shutter only) detects the flicker of alternating light sources and reduces the effect by only shooting at peak brightness, reducing exposure variation. Flicker Scan (electronic shutter only) minimizes the effects of flickering occur under LED lighting.
Electronic stabilization combined with in-body 5-axis stabilization delivers powerful image stabilization during UHD 4K video recording. The OM-D E-M1 Mark III supports OM-Log400, which provides a high degree of freedom during shooting without worrying about overexposure or loss of details in dark shadows and bright highlights, along with color grading for a high degree of freedom over images.
Customization of video C-AF allows videographers to choose the best settings for their subject. Active use of on-chip phase detection AF and new AF algorithms have resulted in precision focusing during video shooting. A total of four AF target modes, including Group 9-point and Group 25-point are available. The OM-D E-M1 Mark III records 120 fps high-speed movie in Full HD for slow motion playback.
Software and Smartphone Applications
The OI.Share® dedicated iOS and Android app can be used to connect to the camera via Wi-Fi®, import shooting data to a smartphone, and to use the smartphone for remote camera operation and more convenient shooting and image organization. OI.Share can be used to update the camera firmware and backup and restore camera settings for the OM-D E-M1 Mark III.
Olympus Capture camera control software for computers meets the demands of studio photographers. Recorded images can be imported via Wi-Fi without using a USB connection, providing powerful support the workflow of studio shooting. It supports high-speed 5 GHz band communication.
Olympus Workspace image editing software can handle professional tasks such as RAW processing and image editing, along with offering freedom over screen layout, etc. Connect a computer to the OM-D E-M1 Mark III via USB to enable high-speed RAW processing on Olympus Workspace using the new image processing engine TruePic IX.
