The Olympus E-M10 has almost all of the previous E-M5’s specs and features. It was set to be smaller and more compact with 16.1 Megapixels 4/3'' Live MOS sensor and 3.0'' Tiltable LCD ‑ Touch Panel 1.037K dots. With approximately 8fps (H) and a Full HD 1920 x 1080, photography can be as professional as it can be. It also has built-in Wi-fi, electronic viewfinder, 81 focus points,Supersonic Wave Filter, and a 3-axis in-camera image stabilization system. The E-M10 has a customisable ISO LOW of 25600 and you can store the captured images via SD Memory Card (SDHC, SDXC, UHS‑I compatible). This camera has the typical look and feel of OM-D cameras, with a Magnesium alloy body and two metal control dials. The E-M10 is the first OM-D to incorporate a built-in flash, with a sync speed up to 1/250. It lies below its E-M5 and E-M1 brothers in terms of both specifications and price, but with structures borrowed from two very strong brothers it's potentially a very remarkable camera in its own right.
