Olympus 6 Month Warranty Extension

OM-D E-M1 Mark III is a professional model which captures high quality images in a compact & lightweight system and enables shooting in any situation. This model is designed for professional photographers and is equipped with the world’s most effective image stabilization which compensates up to 7.5 shutter speed steps*. Handheld High-Res shot delivers up to 50MP image quality in a portable body minimizing stress on the photographer. The AF performance and high-speed burst speed made possible by the new AF algorithms and TruePicTM IX processor allow photographers to capture virtually any scene.

Go further with your handheld shooting style

A fully portable design, coupled with uncompromising image quality under all conditions, makes the E-M1 Mark III your ultimate tool for getting breathtaking results. Take your professional photography to new heights – from nature and landscape to night shots to videos – without being weighed down.

Breathtaking photos without the bulk

The OM-D E-M1 Mark III is a professional model which captures high-quality images from a compact, lightweight camera system – enabling top-level shooting under all circumstances.

Greater freedom of movement

With its compact, lightweight design, the E-M1 Mark III and M.Zuiko Digital lens system lets you fully concentrate on shooting. During photo assignments in rough or rugged locations, you’ll enjoy an easier climb up slopes – allowing you to shoot from the best spot.

In-body 5-axis image stabilisation

Perfect for clear handheld shooting and night scenes is the E-M1 Mark III’s in-body 5-axis image stabilisation (IS) with gyro sensor. It delivers up to 7.0 shutter speed steps of compensation, or up to 7.5 steps of compensation with 5-axis Sync IS available with compatible lenses.

TruePic IX image processor

To realise a range of shooting functions, the E-M1 Mark III has the newest image processor: TruePic IX. Handheld High Res Shot, Live ND, Starry Sky AF, etc. are now possible with just one efficient processor. To achieve the same high performance, the E-M1X requires two TruePic VIII processors.

Handheld High Res Shot

Designed for locations where it is not possible or convenient to use a tripod, this feature provides crisp images and greater noise resistance thanks to a composition equivalent to the high resolution of 50MP. Made from 16 images, it is especially ideal for landscape photography which requires sharp details.

Live ND

Save on space and weight. Built-in Live ND enables long exposure effects in bright conditions, without the need for an external filter. The level can be selected, from ND2 (1 EV step) to ND32 (5 EV steps), and the effect of the shutter speed can be seen live on either the viewfinder or the monitor before capturing.
