The mirrorless camera world continues to become more and more competitive with the DSLR market. Mirrorless cameras are different in that they lack the complex internal mirror systems used by DSLRs. As a result, the cameras use more battery power to fuel their complex sensor functions. But mirrorless cameras are generally lighter and more compact thanks to the space reduction. Slowly, they’re breaking the DSLR monopoly and becoming more well known. Nikon and Canon, the major DSLR manufacturers, have a rather lackluster selection of mirrorless cameras. But the Olympus mirrorless line has a variety of excellent features. Many have built-in image stabilization and a fairly large selection of lenses. The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is an excellent entry-to-intermediate level mirrorless camera. Let’s explore what this camera has to offer.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II is a mid-priced mirrorless camera with a nice suite of features to explore. Like all mirrorless cameras, it has done away with the space-consuming internal mirrors of DSLR cameras. Instead, the sensor acts as viewfinder, autofocus system, and image creator all-in-one. The lack of mirrors gives mirrorless cameras a compact form that’s more comfortable for longer photoshoots. With the choice of a silver or black-framed body, and a vintage film camera look, the Mark II has a very classy feel. But how do the features of this stylish camera really measure up?
With an MSRP of $1,999.99, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II is a powerful new addition to the growing line of mirrorless cameras. These cameras are the first major break from the dominant DSLR line of professional grade digital cameras in years and the new system brings powerful new options to the photography world. Is the OMD EM1 Mark II worth the price and learning curve for those new to mirrorless cameras? We’ll help you determine the answer to that question in this review.
