Olympus introduced OM-D E-M10 IV compact camera with Four Thirds sensor
Camera manufacturer Olympus has introduced a new model OM-D E-M10 Mark IV, which received a compact and lightweight body, as well as a universal set of functions for shooting in all conditions. The device inherited some of the characteristics of its predecessor but received a new image sensor and an improved focusing system.
One of the main features of the OM-D E-M10 IV is the presence of a Four-Thirds image sensor with a physical sensor size of 17.4 x 13 mm. It is noteworthy that such a sensor with a resolution of 20 megapixels is often installed in more expensive models. The image processor remains the same - TruePic VIII, as well as the number of focus points - 121. At the same time, Olympus engineers took care of installing an improved automatic focusing system.
The new product is equipped with a movable 3-inch touch screen, which can now be tilted down 180° for taking selfies. The 5-axis image stabilizer was also borrowed from the OM-D E-M10 III. The camera is equipped with an electronic viewfinder based on an OLED panel.
The settings allow you to adjust the light sensitivity in the ISO range from 100 to 25,600 units, as well as the shutter speed in the range of values from 1/4000 to 60 seconds. The leading number of built-in flash increased from 5.8 to 7.2 units. It is also possible to connect an external flash.
According to the manufacturer, the OM-D E-M10 IV is capable of shooting at a frequency of 6.3 frames per second when the tracking autofocus is activated and up to 15 frames/s without it. The maximum video resolution is 4K at 30 frames per second. In Full HD mode, the maximum frame rate is 60 frames/s. The device has an HDRMI, USB 2.0, which can now be used for charging. There is a slot for SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards with UHS-II support.
Olympus OM-D E-M10 IV has 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The device weighs 383 grams, which is 17 grams less than its predecessor. The camera is capable of taking up to 360 shots from a single charge.
