Olympus Unveils OM-D E-M1 Mark III with Amazing Image Stabilization

Olympus has just launched a compact and lightweight Micro Four Thirds camera, the OM-D E-M1 Mark III. The camera integrates a 20MP sensor and “the world’s best image stabilization” with in-body and in-lens technology for up to 7.5 stops of compensation.

Like its predecessor, the camera has the same 20.4MP Live MOS sensor, but it now runs on the new TruPic IX processor. This makes such a huge difference, as it allows the camera to deliver up to 7 stops of 5-axis Body IS or 7.5 stops “Sync IS”.

The highlight feature is Starry Sky AF, which is perfect for stars gazing. This mode allows shooters to take astrophotography shots in autofocus mode, without a tripod.

The camera is as steady as ever, with a magnesium alloy chassis (dust-, splash and freeze-proof). 

Also, users will find a new joystick instead of the Info button used to be, for more convenience. 

Fun fact: the company said the new version is better at tracking smaller faces and smaller eyes.

As for the price, The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III will become available on February 24th and can be purchased for $1,800 for the body-only, $2,500 with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO Lens, or $2,900 with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO Lens.
