Featuring the compact, lightweight camera body that has characterised the series, the new E-M10 Mark IV is distinguished by having a 20-megapixel sensor, just like its more sophisticated siblings. It also features a flip-down LCD monitor that engages the dedicated selfie mode plus a new OI.Share smartphone app that makes it easy to share images via built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE. The Camera How To instructions manual is also available in the app for learning shooting methods and techniques.

The lightest interchangeable-lens camera in its class, the E-M10 IV comes with powerful, in-body 5-axis image stabilisation that provides 4.5 shutter speed steps of shake correction. The contrast-based AF system includes Face Priority/Eye Priority AF, which can focus on faces in profile or looking down. Continuous AF has also been improved and high-speed sequential shooting is supported at up to 15 fps. The new camera can also support 4K 30p video recording and 4K single frame extraction. 4K video can be recorded without switching to video mode.

The OM-D E-M10 Mark IV body will be offered in silver of black versions for an RRP of AU$1299, while the camera with the M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ kit lens is AU$1499. The E-M10 IV will also be offered with the M.Zuiko ED 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6 II lens for AU$1799. Click here to read a detailed FIRST LOOK report on the new camera.
