The other big change is the addition of a flip-down screen, rather than an articulating display as before. That should make it better for selfie shooters and vloggers, though not quite as good as the E-M5 III, which has a fully articulating flip-out display.
Otherwise, the E-M10 IV is much the same as the last model, which isn’t a bad thing in many ways. It’s still a great-looking camera, and one of the cheapest models with five-axis in-body stabilization. It also lets you shoot 4K video at up to 30 fps and 1080p at 60 fps, but unfortunately, there’s no microphone or headphone socket for video. It has a 2.36 million-dot OLED EVF, a single UHS-II card slots and a decent 360 shot battery life. And, while it still lacks a USB-C port, it finally lets you charge the battery through the micro-USB port.
With all that, the E-M10 IV is barely keeping up with the competition, including Sony’s A6100 and the Canon EOS M50. However, much like with the flagship E-M1 III, it’s not a huge jump over the last model, and the competition is improving at a faster speed — all while the camera market continues to nosedive. The Olympus O-MD E-M10 goes on pre-order today for $700 (body only, silver or black), or $800 with an M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm F/3.5-5.6 EZ lens. Shipping starts on September 25th, 2020.
