(FT5) Olympus E-M10 has a smaller body than the E-M5 and built-in flash!

Share

The new E-M10 is said to be closer to the E-Pl5 in terms of body size (Image courtesy: Camerasize).

Two trusted sources added more info on the soon to be announced new OMD E-M10 camera. The camera is said to be smaller than the E-M5. It’s a sort of E-PL sized body with EVF on top. And unlike the other OMD models this one has a built-in Flash!

In summary these are the specs so far for the entry level OMD:
– 16MP sensor (same as E-M5 and with no PDAF)
– True Pic VII processor (same as E-M1)
– Very small body
– integrated flash
– 3 axis stabilization
– comes with new compact zoom as kit lens

I guess the failure or success will now be determined merely by the price of the camera. This sounds ike a nice low budget camera. So let it be really low budget :)

P.S.: There will be also a new 25mm f/1.8 lens.

(FT5) New E-M10 has 3 axis IBIS.

Share

The E-M10 name already is present in Indonesia public registry for devices with WiFi.

Soon Olympus will announce the new E-M10 and as I told you before the E-M5 will remain for sale for a longer time. And finally I know one of the possible reasons. The E-M10 will have a 3 axis image stabilization while the E-M5 has a five axis stabilization. That way the E-M10 will have a more clear differentiation from the High End OMD which is the E-M1.

That part got confirmed via multiple sources: The E-M10 has the same E-M5 sensor with E-M1 image processor. 25mm f/1.8 and new compact zoom coming too!
