    Main Features Details

    Blur-free high image quality in various scenes, such as night scenes, telephoto shooting, and video recording

    This model is equipped with in-body image stabilization, powerfully suppressing camera shake, which tends to occur when shooting at night, in dim indoor scenes, while shooting video and when using a telephoto lens. It also features TruePic VIII, the same image processor found in Olympus' professional models, for clear images with minimal noise, even in low-light scenes. The combination of in-body image stabilization and TruePic VIII provides blur-free images.

    Flip-down monitor for shooting at any angle and useful Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to wirelessly transfer photos from the camera to a smartphone

    Flip-down LCD monitor

    Simply touch the subject shown on the LCD monitor to simultaneously focus and activate the shutter (Touch AF Shutter). When the monitor is flipped down, it automatically switches the camera to Selfie mode for easy self-portrait shooting. You can also select e-Portrait for brighter, smoother skin, or switch to movie recording with a simple touch operation. Changing the angle of the LCD monitor also makes it possible to shoot from various perspectives.

    Easy connection to a smartphone

    Use the built-in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and the Olympus Image Share (OI.Share) app to easily connect the camera and smartphone to import images and share on social media. By using the Share Order function, selected photos or videos on the camera will be automatically transferred to your smartphone once the camera is turned off. OI.Share also provides a Camera How To guide, containing tutorial videos of shooting techniques and a Digital Guidebook packed with other useful shooting tips.

    Enjoy a wealth of creative expressions using Art Filters and interchangeable lenses

Anyone can easily shoot a multi-exposure photo by just overlapping two images in Multi Exposure, and shoot light trails of stars or automobile lamps without the risk of overexposure in Live Composite. Silent mode, which mutes shutter and operation sounds, is now possible in P, A, S and M modes as well as AP mode.

    Versatile interchangeable lenses

    A versatile lineup of compact, lightweight, high-performance interchangeable lenses are available, including bright, single-focal-length lenses as well as macro lenses to achieve beautiful defocusing effects. You can choose the perfect lens depending on the subject to dramatically expand the possibilities of photographic expression.

This model is designed for a simple, harmonious look that is easy to match with any style. When paired with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ standard kit lens, it is highly portable, and is lighter than a 500 ml bottle of water.

    1. Supports high image quality 4K video and the ability to extract still images from videos
    2. Maximum 8.6 fps high-speed sequential shooting so you never miss a photo opportunity
    3. SCN (Scene) mode lets you capture images exactly as you imagine simply by choosing a shooting theme
