Urban jungle, up high or on the streets, in broad daylight or with a view of the nightscape, under rainy conditions, or not. The E-M5 Mark III can handle it all. There are virtually no limits to how far you can go. The compact, lightweight size lets you break free from the chains of bulkier equipment. And take your photography to new heights – made possible by the perfect design, with advanced technology and must-have functionality. In short: all you need to explore wherever and whenever you like.

20M Live MOS sensor

Delivering rich optics and details with clarity when on the move or shooting in darker locations – the high-power sensor in the
E-M5 Mark III is specially constructed to work with the powerful image stabilisation (IS). The anti-reflective AR Coating reduces flaring and ghosting directly on the sensor.

TruePic VIII image processor

Perfectly complementing the 20M Live MOS sensor is the advanced image processor. Its double quad-core system and dedicated AF calculation circuit provide the power behind the ultra-fast autofocus speed and brilliant image quality.

In-body image stabilisation

The IS built into the E-M5 Mark III provides up to 5.5 shutter speed steps of correction*, meaning there is nothing holding you back from going out and capturing the world. And it is in the camera, so you have clear handheld shooting results with every lens. When using a compatible lens like the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12–100mm F4 IS PRO, the Sync IS feature makes sure the camera and lens work together perfectly to deliver up to 6.5 EV steps of correction.

121-point all-cross type

With an amazing 121 points in an all-cross-type layout, with on-chip Phase Detection AF, the E-M5 Mark III can hold up to all your photography needs. Even patterns and moving subjects can be captured at high speed with precision.

High precision

Capturing clear photos in low light or darker objects in front of a darker background is particularly challenging – but the
E-M5 Mark III can master the challenge perfectly. The fast autofocus remains precise even at the widest aperture setting, taking in colours and shapes to make sure the subject stand out.

AF Target mode

As the E-M5 Mark III is made for photography that suites you, it features the AF Target mode. This has six options for focusing accurately on your subject during action or macro photography. The single-action button makes capturing the scenes you want fast and easy.

Face/Eye Priority AF

For portrait photography, or simply capturing people around you, the
E-M5 Mark III has the ability to automatically detect human faces and eyes. The result is precise focusing on your subject with every click or tap of the shutter release.

Iconic design

The E-M5 Mark III takes the iconic design of the original OM system a step higher. The delta shape at the top of the camera, an iconic features of the OM system design, can likewise be seen here. The slightly bevelled top rim tunes the balance between the leather-like material and top portion height to underscore the camera’s advanced look.

Easy viewing

The ridge of the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) on the E-M5 Mark III is wider to make the camera appear more stable – and easier for you to operate. The large EVF with long eye point also makes it possible for eyeglass-wearers to enjoy capturing images.

Flexible shooting

With the swivel LCD monitor on the E-M5 Mark III, you don’t have to take on awkward or uncomfortable positions when shooting. The monitor adjusts to you – whether for shooting high up or down low. This is also a must-have when recording films featuring dynamic scenes.

Weatherproof body

Wherever your fancy takes you, go there with the E-M5 Mark III. Its full set-up of seals makes it splashproof, dustproof and freezeproof down to –10°C. The most severe environments – from rain to snow to dust – are no match for the E-M5 Mark III.

Supersonic Wave Filter (SSWF)

Get the best of the class – and have the satisfaction of knowing you will get clear results. Whenever you change lenses on the E-M5 Mark III, the camera instantly removes any dust on its sensor by vibrating at ultra-high speeds of over 30,000 times per second. The special coating on the sensor prevents dust even further.
