The Olympus OM-D E-M1 MK III micro 4/3 camera features a new 20.4 Megapixel Live MOS sensor, world's best 5-axis image stabilisation with up to 7.5 EV, 4K video and even a 50MP Handheld High Res mode.

The Olympus E-M1 Mark III is a rugged and compact pro mirrorless camera featuring the world’s best image stabilisation system with 7.5 shutter speed steps of compensation. The E-M1 Mark III has a 20.4 MP Live MOS sensor and new TruePic IX image processor to power highly precise and fast autofocus. With its compact & lightweight design, the E-M1 III is truly portable. The rugged magnesium alloy body and weather sealing makes this camera ideal for shooting in any location and environment. The E-M1 MK III is also perfect for videographers, offering features such as handheld 4K and Cinema 4K video. Electronic stabilisation combined with in-body 5-axis stabilisation lets you can create amazing movie content without using a tripod.

In combination with the new image processing engine TruePic IX, a 20.4 Megapixel Live MOS sensor, and an extensive line-up of high-resolution M.Zuiko lenses, the 5-axis IS ensures minimal noise even at high-sensitivity settings and top-class image quality with minimal distortion up to the edges of the shot. For users in need of higher resolutions, the 50MP Handheld High Res Shot feature makes it possible to capture approximately 50 Megapixel high-resolution images without using a tripod. The Tripod High Res Shot function allows for recording ultra high-resolution (approx. 80 Megapixel equivalent) RAW and JPEG images.

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 enable accurate focusing even on the tiniest stars shining in the night sky, enabling ultra high-precision autofocusing. One of two modes in Starry Sky AF is the Speed Priority mode (default setting), which prioritizes focusing speed and complete AF operations in a short period of time. Thanks to the powerful image stabilization, this feature makes handheld astrophotography possible using a wide angle lens. The second mode Accuracy Priority uses a fine-tuned focus scan and is effective for shooting specific stars with telephoto lenses.

The E-M1 Mark III features an IS mode specifically designed for video recording. Electronic stabilization combined with in-body 5-axis stabilization delivers powerful image stabilization particularly useful for videographers. This provides a high level of performance for handheld video content creation without using a tripod or other stabilizing device, even when shooting in high-resolution formats, which are susceptible to the effects of camera shake, such as 4K or Cinema 4K (C4K).

This model supports OM-Log400 shooting, which enables shooting without loss of details in shadows and highlights, along with color grading for a high degree of freedom over images. In order to make Live View images more visible, a View Assist function is available, which converts the colour gamut to Full HD standard BT.709 equivalent for display.
