New Olympus OM-D E-M10 named best Compact System Camera Entry Level by TIPA
Newest OM-D camera upholds family tradition with first major award
London, April 2014 – Olympus’ high-end OM-D camera range collected another top award, with TIPA voting the E-M10 the best Compact System Camera in the Entry Level category. The release in February of the strikingly compact, lightweight but technology-packed E-M10 completed an OM-D mirrorless line-up that includes the advanced E-M5 and professional flagship E-M1, with which the E-M10 shares many of its first-class features.
Given the popularity of the OM-D range and the E-M10’s extremely compact casing, the youngest member of the family may yet surpass the success of its multiple award-winning predecessors. As the TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) jury noted, “The nicely designed and extremely compact and metal-bodied OM-D E-M10 convinces with great image quality and operation thanks to the TruePic VII processor (inherited from the E-M1), a 16-Megapixel Live MOS sensor, built-in WiFi with QR code scanning technology, a large, 1.4-million RGB dot electronic viewfinder and a tilting 3-inch touchscreen LCD with high 1,039,000-dot resolution. The camera incorporates 3-axis image stabilisation and FAST AF, making this the fastest ever Olympus AF system with 81 target areas covering the entire image. With 8 fps shooting speed, burst rates can deliver up to 16 RAW images and an unlimited number of JPEGs. With continuous AF, the camera delivers up to 3.5 fps.”
The OM-D E-M10 is available in ready to use kits starting from £699.99*, or £529.99* for body only, ideal for those who already own their preferred lenses. If you’d like to try out the E-M10 yourself it is available to “touch and try” at the Olympus Image Space in association with rockarchive.com in the heart of the City of London in Bishopsgate.
