Olympus is upgrading the entry-level E-M10 Mark III with a new edition, the Mark IV. The purpose of the camera remains the same, as it receives the same retro-chic styling we expect from an OM-D model, and support for Micro Four Lenses from Olympus, Panasonic, and others. It gets a new image sensor, going from 16MP to 20MP. The sensor is stabilized, a rare find in similar entry-level offerings. The five-axis IBIS system helps handheld video (the Mark IV supports 4K video), and works to reduce motion blur when making still images.
Other features include a new flip-down touchscreen, a micro-USB port that supports charging, an OLED electronic viewfinder, and improved face detection. It’s priced at $699.99 as a body only (for those who already own Micro Four Thirds lenses), or for $799.99 with the compact 14-42mm EZ zoom. The E-M10 Mark IV is available in your choice of a silver or black finish. Now through Nov. 1, Olympus is also including an accessory kit with a camera bag, an extra BLS-50 battery, and a 32GB memory card.
