      professional climber with camera in hand


      Roam the planet with a camera system that never gets in the way and frees you up to enjoy every moment of every adventure.


        The E-M5 Mark III is part of the world’s most portable camera system. Carry less. Shoot more. It’s that simple.


        Our advanced 20MP Live MOS Sensor, TruePic™ VIII image processor and world-class M.Zuiko lenses work together to produce distortion-free images with edge-to-edge sharpness.


        When your camera is splashproof, dustproof and freezeproof, you can stop worrying about the weather and focus on shooting.

      camera in hand


      On one hand, you want spectacular shots of the places you explore. On the other hand, you don’t want a camera that’s heavy to carry. The E-M5 Mark III is perfect. As part of the world’s most portable camera system, it’s 55% smaller and 64% lighter than leading full-frame mirrorless cameras*. You’ll move with greater ease and have more energy to focus on enjoying the moment. Capture the world without being weighed down.

      *As of October 2019


      Our 20MP Live MOS Sensor is an integral part of a team of innovative technologies — along with our M.Zuiko lenses and TruePic™ VIII Image Processor — responsible for the E-M5 Mark III’s exceptional image quality. Our sensor produces images with natural tones and minimal noise even at high ISO sensitivities.

      Imagine climbing over a ridge and stopping to shoot a mountain with beautiful cloud formations. But suddenly it starts raining. No problem. The E-M5 Mark III is fully weathersealed. You can keep your focus where it belongs: on your subject instead of the weather. The camera is protected from water and dust. You can even use it in below freezing temperatures. No protective gear needed. You’re free to shoot without worry because your camera takes care of itself in tough conditions.


      The E-M5 Mark III works best with our world-class M.Zuiko lenses. Like the camera, they’re compact and lightweight while delivering imaging power as stunning as their larger, heavier 35mm equivalents. It means when you’re roaming the streets of a quaint town or walking through ancient ruins in a foreign country, your gear won’t weigh you down. There’s an M.Zuiko lens for every shooting situation, so as your interest in photography grows, our lenses will keep up.

      The 2.36 million dot OLED viewfinder is used on The E-M5 Mark III to deliver vivid colors and a high contrast display. A long eye point is designed for easy viewing, even when wearing glasses.

      Capturing the most challenging shots is a lot easier when you’re shooting with our proven autofocus technology.


        The same autofocus system used by pros has all the speed and precision you need to track and capture challenging, fast-moving subjects.


        Capturing action that barely lasts a fraction of a second is nearly impossible. Pro Capture Mode makes the impossible possible.


        Fire off a burst of 20MP images at 30fps to effortlessly keep up with and capture any fast-moving action.

      You demand the best. Our autofocus system delivers. The heart of our technologically advanced system is 121-point all-cross type on-chip Phase Detection AF. It does one thing really well: locking focus on any subject, in any environment. Each AF point is cross-type for reliable vertical and horizontal tracking. The points are spread across the entire image sensor for maximum autofocus coverage. You’ll capture fast-moving subjects and split-second action every time.


      The most challenging shot in photography is capturing action that’s quicker than the blink of an eye. Think of the instant a salmon swimming upstream breaks through the water and disappears. Pro Capture Mode nails those near impossible shots. It starts buffering a running series of 20MP images when you press the shutter button halfway. At the moment you want to capture, press the shutter button fully. You’ll get that moment, plus the buffered shots. Because you can go back 14 frames, you’ll have the exact shot you want. Never miss an exciting, split-second scene again.

      Sometimes you need a camera with lots of speed and no lag. The E-M5 Mark III delivers. Reel off a mind-blowing 30fps to shoot some of the fastest moving subjects on earth. Or use the mechanical shutter and capture 10 high-resolution fps.


      The E-M5 Mark III gives you highly precise tracking no matter how crowded the scene or how unpredictable your subject is. Our advanced Tracking AF Mode lets you simultaneously shoot and focus on a specific subject. Use the Center Priority/Center Start in C-AF to track subjects with consistent movement and for rapidly moving subjects. Adjust the tracking sensitivity to match your subject’s movement and speed. Track. Capture. Never miss.

      Control the AF frame based on the way you’re shooting. If you’re using the viewfinder, simply drag your thumb across the rear monitor to use as a trackpad. If you’re shooting with the monitor, instantly select your focus point by tapping the display. When you enable Touch AF Shutter, tap the monitor to focus and shoot simultaneously.

      Accurately capturing your subject is easier with one of six AF Targeting Modes. Use Single for landscape or shooting with a tripod. 5-point tracks moving subjects clustered together and 9-point AF Target is for moving objects like an airplane or an athlete. 25-point AF Target focuses on smaller moving subjects such as a flying bird. 121-Point AF Target tracks subjects moving through the entire screen while Small provides extra-fine, pinpoint focus.

      Shooting crisp telephoto images or bright, clear low-light shots, requires a tripod. But not with the E-M5 Mark III. Our groundbreaking 5-Axis in-body Image Stabilization system lets you leave tripods behind. Our system — one of the most effective on the market — provides an astounding 5.5 shutter steps of compensation for all types of camera movement. Take handheld telephoto shots and capture low light scenes without stabilizing equipment. Enjoy more shooting flexibility because you’ll have less extra gear to carry.

      5-AXIS SYNC IS

      Take Image Stabilization up a notch and pair the E-M5 Mark III with a stabilized M.Zuiko PRO lens. Our in-body system syncs with our in-lens system to provide 6.5 shutter steps of compensation — creating one of the world’s most powerful IS systems. You’ll have even more mobility to shoot all types of handheld images and take bright, richly detailed photos in low light. Be free from tripods and other stabilizing gear.

      You want to shoot lots of video on your journey. But you also don’t want to haul around stabilizing equipment to keep your video from looking shaky and jumpy. The E-M5 Mark III’s built-in Image Stabilization system has your back. Just hold the camera in your hand to shoot clear, crisp, smooth 4K video. Go anywhere and capture video of anything — even in low light settings like a sunset or candlelight. Travel light and shoot all the spectacular video you want without a rig.

      Pictured with LS-P4, sold separately.


      The E-M5 Mark III’s image sensor, compact image stabilization unit, and large lens mount all work together to allow the image sensor greater range of motion. This provides for more effective image stabilization performance, ensuring sharp handheld shots on the go.

      The E-M5 Mark III features advanced technology to ensure your photos and video are bright, sharp and exquisitely detailed.


        Take a 50MP ultra high-resolution image where every detail is exquisitely captured. Perfect for shooting landscapes.


        Get long exposure photography right. Live Composite Mode (along with Live Bulb and Live Time) can help you capture difficult nighttime shots brilliantly.

      • BUILT-IN WI-FI

        Wirelessly connect the camera to your smart device via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth for easy sharing on-the-go.

      nature scene with mountains and forests


      Taking a 50MP photo is as easy as setting up a tripod and attaching the E-M5 Mark III. Our Tripod High Res Shot Mode does the work. The image sensor automatically moves in 0.5 pixel increments while taking 8 shots in under a second. The shots are merged together creating one unbelievably detailed, super-sharp image.


      Improve indoor photography with our Anti-Flicker Shooting Mode. It compensates for artificial light by automatically activating the shutter at peak brightness to smooth exposure and color difference between frames. A Flicker Scan feature eliminates striped patterns caused by flickering light on the monitor by setting a shutter speed so the patterns aren’t noticeable.

      Something for long exposure enthusiasts. Live Composite Mode stitches together multiple images shot at the same shutter speed, keeping the images from getting too bright. It’s an easy way to capture dramatic photos of star trails, evocative nighttime cityscapes and moody landscapes without worrying about over or underexposure. Live Bulb Mode and Live Time Mode let you see the exposure level of your image in real time so you’ll know when it’s perfect. The E-M5 Mark III takes all the guesswork out of long exposure photography.

    Lightweight, compact, compelling images

    The E-M5 Mark iii is my first foray into MFT territory. After retiring 3 years ago, I decided to get back into photography after only using point-and-shoot for 50 years. After 6 months of research, I bought a Nikon Z6 and a few lenses. While the cachet of full-frame felt good, lugging around the body and lenses detracted from our travel experiences. So I started moving down to APS-C format, but found the ergonomics not comfortable. Still dissatisfied, I decided to give Olympus a shot, and it was the best decision of my life. Lightweight, great grip and balance, pocket-size lenses, and spectacular image quality have made me appreciate what I was missing. I have a 12-200mm lens on the camera most of the time, a 17mm f/1.8 for low light, a 12-45mm f/4 for focus-stacking, and a 14-150mm which I will sell. Super compact and easy to carry. I have found my new home thanks to Olympus.

    Great camera to take traveling

    Great camera for traveling. Not heavy as other cameras. Has everything I was looking for-bracketing, sequential shooting, Raw and Jpeg saving-and simple to operate. Love it.

    Great camera that is small and light weight.

    This is a really great camera that has super functions in a very small and light body. I see me using it as my "walk around" camera. It seems very solid and well made and takes great photos. The dust and splash proof features will be perfect if I am out photographing in damp conditions.


    Superior image quality in a small, lightweight pro camera. Put some of the world's leading camera tech right in your hands.
