We’re really big fans of the Olympus’s OM Micro Four Thirds range, and its recently introduced Olympus OM-D E-M10 is a rather wonderful compact camera sporting a stylish retro look.
High St camera retailer Jessops = the very same people who came back from the dead last year – have scooped an exclusive kit deal which offers the Olympus OM-D E-M10 body in moody black or extra-trendy silver plus a 14-42mm II R lens for £599.99.
That looks pretty like much a bargain to our eyes – find out more on the Jessops website:

It is small but perfectly formed and features the latest lightweight hardware making it the perfect option for capturing and sharing images on the go. While this camera is sought after by professional photographers and amateur enthusiasts, even keen beginners will soon get to grips with this model. For those who want a little help on the way, Jessops offers tailored one to one training sessions from as little as £39, so you can ensure you get the very best out of your new kit.
Key features of the OM-D E-M10 14-42mm II R kit include:
Compact and light
Weighing in at just under 400g, the OM-D E-M10 is lightweight enough to carry around all day long. The E-M10 is housed in a bold, all-metal super-compact body that delivers the authentic aesthetic and robust finish of a top-of-the-range camera. Even with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 lens attached, the E-M10 only measures 63.9mm from the viewfinder to the rim of the lens.
Quick and responsive
Time lag is not a problem with this camera. The EVF (electronic viewfinder) will quickly reproduce fast-moving scenes so you never miss a shot. The EVF, in combination with FAST AF (Olympus’s fastest auto focus to date) and high-speed sequential shooting, makes the EM10 well suited to shooting sport, animals and other fleeting subjects.
Create high quality HD movies
“We get many customers in store, both beginners and pros, who want to make documentaries and shorts on the go without carrying around all the equipment. The OM-D E-M10 solves this solution for filmmakers as it can make high quality HD movies, irrespective of the lens attached to the camera and the lighting conditions,” says Rachel Sgro, Manager at London’s Oxford Street store.
The adjustable, 3inch LCD screen can be tilted in a variety of angles for ergonomic freedom. Whether you are photographing high or down low, you can position the screen perfectly to accurately capture your subject.
Smart phone technology
The E-M10 comes with built-in WiFi, so it can communicate directly with compatible smartphones and send selected images directly to websites and social media. Alternatively, you can use your phone as a remote control to avoid accidentally nudging the camera during long exposures, simply pair your phone and camera using a QR code to mirror the LCD screen. This allows more control and focus whilst avoiding even the most minimal of nudges to the camera for perfect composition.
