Capturing light data for the E-M10 is a 16-Megapixel 4/3 Live MOS image sensor. The sensor also has a built-in 3-axis image stabilization system that works with any lens that is attached to the camera, allowing you to always have active image stabilization. It also helps to keep the size, weight and price down on Olympus's lenses. 

Working along side the image sensor is their TruePic VII image processor with Fine Detail Processing II Technology. This processor is responsible for increasing image quality, controlling the I.S. system, controlling all of the camera's automatic features, and providing you with the fantastic performance and burst shooting rates.

The E-M10 uses the versatile Micro 4/3 mount system, which is also used by Panasonic. This compact mounting system allows the lenses to be incredibly small and lightweight, while still providing optimal image quality.

Here is the E-M10 with the included M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II R kit lens. This 3x optical zoom lens has a 35mm equivalent of 28-84mm. The light, compact lens is the perfect fit for the compact body of the E-M10.

Available separately or included with the premium kit is the M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 EZ power zoom lens. With the same optical range as the lens above, this lens is much more compact at less than 1-inch thick when retracted. This makes it a great lens for travel. The electronic zoom control allows for smooth zooming, which is perfect for video recording.

Here are the two 14-42mm lenses sitting side by side, showing how much more compact the EZ lens is.

The small, compact pop-up flash unit shown here is not incredibly powerful but does get the job done in close situations. The flash is also capable of controlling wireless external flash units from Olympus. These external flashes can also be attached to the camera via the hotshoe to provide the camera with more power.

Here you can see the large EVF (electronic viewfinder) that gives this camera a true dSLR feel. With a resolution of 1.4-million pixels, you will be amazed at the color and clarity that this EVF provides. Combine that with all of the shooting information and you will soon forget about your old optical viewfinder. On the right side is the eye sensor that automatically turns the EVF on when you put the camera up to your face. To the left of the EVF is the dioptic adjustment and flash button.

For those who prefer shooting via the LCD screen, the E-M10 features a 3-inch, 1,037k-dot tilting touchscreen LCD. The high-res screen has excellent detail and color reproduction for shooting and viewing your images. Tilting the screen allows you to view the images comfortably at all times or to shoot around objects in difficult situations. Finally the touchscreen provides plenty of control options on the screen, including touch to focus and touch to capture options.
