Review summary from DPReview
The Olympus OM-D E-M10 is positioned as the entry-level OM-D camera, though it's just as capable in most ways as its more advanced siblings. It borrows the E-M5's impressive imaging capabilities, without the weatherproofing, and adds built-in Wi-Fi. The E-M10 offers an impressive level of direct control in a camera body that's light and compact.
Scoring is relative only to the other products in the same category.

Add dimension to your photography, without adding more weight. The E-M10 is a super-slim, lightweight system camera that’s packed with everything you need to capture your every creative vision. Like a large electronic viewfinder, high-performance 3-axis image stabilisation and high-speed autofocus. Because the E-M10 is based on the award-winning Olympus E-M5 and the E-M1, you can be sure of outstanding high quality with every photo. On top of all this, the Micro Four Thirds system gives you access to one of the largest ranges of lenses in this class.
Benefits you’ll notice – at every turn
Take it everywhere, everyday
The E-M10 is so super-slim and lightweight, you’ll hardly notice it’s there. Despite its take-everywhere size, this system camera is packed with everything you need for capturing great photos. Its stylish magnesium alloy build with comfortable grip fits perfectly in your hand for a secure hold while the careful attention to detail ensures the E-M10 is a stylish camera that you can take with you every day.
Control your every creative move
High level of photography made easy. Its ergonomic design and an intuitive dial knob give you complete control of the camera – while the high-definition electronic viewfinder (EVF) and the ultra-high-speed, 81-point FAST AF (autofocus) make you a master of capturing images. The 3-axis in-camera VCM image stabilisation is the icing on the cake – delivering pin-sharp images that ensure your photos are free of unsightly blur and smear.
Capture every subject or scene
Need a macro for a close-up? Or a wide lens for getting more into the scene? Or how about a telephoto for photos from far away? The choice is yours – the E-M10 is ready for your creative ingenuity. It is compatible with one of the largest number of lenses available for this camera class – featuring ZUIKO high quality, so you can capture every subject or scene in every situation. Together with the 16-megapixel LiveMOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor, your images will come out clear and sharp.
Features you’ll love – in every situation
Get closer to the image – with the large electronic viewfinder
Take control of your photography and immerse yourself in what you see. The E-M10’s EVF ensures natural-looking light levels to help compose your subject, even in bright sunshine or low-light conditions. Check and set all the functions needed for image capture. You can even select the best aspect ratio for your image as well as review your pictures without ever taking your eye away from the EVF.
Make the most of low-light photography and Full HD movies
Great for all hand-held photography and movies without the need for a tripod: The E-M10’s in-body 3-axis image stabilisation (IS) system enables you to make the most of atmospheric low-light conditions while enjoying blur-free images – and because it’s integrated inside the camera, the IS system works seamlessly with both the extensive range of Olympus Micro Four Thirds and any other compatible lenses. What’s more, it automatically corrects panning images to minimise blur or jolts for a smoother, quality result.
Take control straight from your smartphone thanks to built-in Wi-Fi
You can adjust apertures, shutter speeds and other settings, switch between shooting modes and even see and take Live Bulb shots directly from your smartphone’s screen, eliminating camera shake. With the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14–42 mm, 1.3.5–5.6 lens, you can zoom in and out using your phone. Then instantly share your photos via your social network using the Olympus Image Share app to import images from the E-M10 to your smartphone. You can also geotag your photos using your smartphone too.
Never miss a shot with the ultra-fast autofocus system
The FAST AF is an ultra-fast, high-precision AF system that covers all your picture-taking needs. It gives you complete control of super-fast focusing, right down to selecting the focusing area for very small subjects – this can also be done with a touch of the rear screen. This autofocus system also ensures perfect tracking of moving subjects – making action shots easy. You can shoot bursts of up to 8 frames per second.
Combine multiple pictures to create one stunning image
Use the Live Composite feature to combine multiple long-exposure images to create one breathtaking photo. The E-M10’s intelligent Live Composite mode uses specially developed brightness control technology to take the guesswork out of multiple image photography. Preview the result before shooting to determine exposure number and interval for greater convenience and creativity.

An internet review site likened the E-M5 to a gazelle, which is also good simile for the E-M10. As soon as you put the camera to your eye, it automatically switches off the rear screen and enables the electronic view finder. The rear dial I have programmed to adjust exposure with the button next to it programmed for AEL. Unlike an optical view finder there is a live view of the exposure, so you immediately see if you are under/over exposing before taking the photo, and you can toggle "blinkies" to check for sensor dynamic range clipping (clipped highlights flash orange and clipped shadows flash blue). The front dial I have programmed for adjusting aperture / shutter, with one of the adjacent buttons programmed for depth of field preview. The other adjacent button is programmed to toggle the dial functions; press it and the front dial changes adjusts ISO, and the rear dial adjusts White Balance. Again, there is live view of the white balance in the view finder before taking the photo. I have the view finder programmed so that the exposure compensation is replaced by a spirit level once the shutter button is half pressed. So managing the exposure, depth of field, white balance and getting straight horizon is childs play, and no need for chimping after each photo.
The autofocus is also quick, accurate and no-nonsense. I have the four arrow buttons programmed to directly move the focus point around the 81 point grid.Read more ›
I bought this and immediately thought: Oh, that can only be a toy.
Then I took a picture with it: easy to use, immediate, clear viewfinder with LOTS of information. Perfect picture quality. Ideal as a camera.
Then I put it in my coat pocket: Wow it is small and neat and tidy - and still delivers outstanding results.
Yes, the menus need "thinking about". But I set the options I wanted: small focus point in the middle, aperture priority, aperture control on the front dial and exposure compensation on the back, information on the screen and viewfinder etc. Saved these as a MySet and allocated them to the A on the dial.
Now, whenever I switch to A, I get my best setup - IDEAL. I can still use all the other settings and see what they do, and quickly return to my settings whenever I wish.
Advice: don't think, buy it!
You cant take any pictures until it is in your hands. And once it is there, you will be delighted.
I might have bought the E-M5 or stretched to the E-M1 to get that leap in quality, but I realised I didn't need to. The E-M10 doesn't really lack any professional features (well, one or two perhaps, though it has one or two unique features of its own, like a built-in flash) - it's just smaller.
Okay, so you don't get the weather sealing or the 5-axis image stabilisation the other two OM-Ds have, or the ability to shoot at 1/8000. The lack of weather sealing is fine for a fair-weather photographer like me, and in any case you have to have weather sealed lenses too, and none of the lenses I fancy are weather sealed.
The 3-axis image stabiliser gets good reviews from the pros, and works very well for me, so I can live with that too. And 1/4000 sec shutter speed is fine for my kind of photography. Get over these three hurdles and the E-M10 is the obvious choice since it's such good value.
In the hand it feels great - super dense and built like a little tank. It feels expensive. I like cameras to be as small as possible, and this is so much smaller than my SLR was. The E-M10 feels just right, with a perfect thumb grip on the back and decent finger grip on the front. If you want to use big lenses, you might want to buy the optional grip that I hear is very useful.
Image quality is clearly better than my old SLR. It had a bigger sensor, but was poor at ISO1600, its max ISO. That's how things have moved on. The E-M10 is smooth and detailed at ISO1600, fine at 3200, and just about okay at 6400 in a pinch. I wouldn't bother with the higher settings.Read more ›
One minor drawback imo, is the price of the "top end" lenses is very high. While they are of excellent optical quality and third party vendors are increasing both the kit and the lower end lenses coupled with this camera are not as good in low light as say Pentax. The photo of my dog was taken hand held at 1600 ISO f4.9 and remarkably 1/10 of a second which speaks volumes for the IS system as I am 70 years old. The second photo taken in my garden on a fairly dull December day was 1000 ISO, F5.6 and 1/80th sec
However I have them both now and am very glad for that. :) Don't be fooled by the fact it has an EVF this is one serious bit of kit and I love the brilliantly accomplished EVF as much as I do the Pentax OVF.
The tilting screen is also great for when you want to take low shots without getting on your knees. All in all I couldn't be happier. I have a feeling this is the format that is about to explode (I think it is already happening, see Nikon sales) and the Olympus range imo will be right out there in the forefront.
