The technical details behind this camera

The EM5 Mark III features dustproof and splashproof abilities in a compact and lightweight body. Featuring the reliability, high speed and high precision AF of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, the E-M5 Mark III offers outstanding portability when paired with a compact and lightweight M.Zuiko Digital lenses. The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III is a highly portable interchangeable lens camera equipped with the same 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF as the OM-D E-M1 Mark II, offering high-speed, high-precision autofocus capabilities in a compact, lightweight body. It also features a powerful image stabilisation along with versatile shooting features such as Live Composite and Live Bulb. Even when paired with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO lens, it remains a compact, lightweight camera system that can fit in a small bag to take anywhere.

Outstanding portability and high image quality in a compact, lightweight dustproof and splashproof body

The entire camera body is sealed for high-performance dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof capabilities so users can focus on shooting. This model is also equipped with SSWF (Super Sonic Wave Filter) that vibrates the image sensor filter 30,000 times per second to drastically reduce the amount of dust and dirt that ends up in photos. All parts of the E-M5 Mark III have been miniaturized to provide the smallest body possible. Dramatic improvements in power-saving performance make it possible to use the more compact BLS-50 battery for an even more lightweight and compact form overall. This model can easily be carried on trips even when paired with a large-diameter standard zoom lens. The compact system size means that users can shoot for long periods of time in locations where tripods cannot be used so photo opportunities are not missed. Olympus also offers a diverse lineup of high-resolution, compact, lightweight interchangeable lenses to support this amazing system.

Cracking speed and image quality

Just as on the E-M1 Mark II, this model boasts a combination of the approximate 20.4 Megapixel Live MOS sensor, the latest high-speed TruePic VIII image processor, and powerful image stabilisation. When paired with high-resolution M.Zuiko Digital lenses, it is capable of capturing images with minimal noise even at high-sensitivity settings and delivers high image quality with minimal distortion up to the edges of the shot.

121-point Phase Detection AF and in body 5 axis stabilisation

The 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF delivers high-speed precision focusing, even for fast-moving subjects where focus is difficult, so users never miss a photo opportunity. A new 5-axis IS unit was developed to deliver a high level of image stabilisation in a compact, lightweight body. Based on camera shake information obtained from the high-sensitivity gyro sensor and image analysis, the TruePic VIII image processor precisely controls the IS unit to enable up to 5.5 shutter speed steps of compensation performance. The in-body 5-axis IS ensures image stabilisation with all M.Zuiko Digital lenses used with the E-M5 Mark III. In addition to angular and shift blur, roll blur, which cannot be compensated for by in-lens image stabilisation only, is corrected for powerful handheld shooting support.

Top three Reasons we think you will love this camera

  • Compact, Lightweight and ideal for travel due to 5 axis Stabilisation system
  • Cracking image quality
  •  Same 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF as Olympus professional models




Our experts opinion

Olympus interchangeable lens camera systems’ biggest advantage is their amazing mobility thanks to the compact, lightweight camera system. The combination of a high-performance lens line-up and powerful image stabilisation gives sharp, high-quality photos and videos in a variety of scenes. One of the main reasons people visit Camera House is to purchase a camera is for travel. Capturing memories when you are on the fly, you never really understand the advantage of a more portable system until you have to carry gear around for a day. The system in the M5 is a tried and true formula designed to be travellers best friend. And without compromising on image quality, it’s a definite Win Win.

All cameras and accessories are guaranteed new from authorised distributors in Australia. All cameras are covered by the standard manufacturer’s Australian warranties. Parramatta Cameras definitely does not deal in any 'grey market', 'direct import' or so-called 'international versions' of goods. All cameras are sourced from authorised distribution channels with original Australian warranties.

All stock supplied by Parramatta Cameras is sourced through genuine Australian Suppliers.  This means when you purchase from Parramatta Cameras you will get a genuine Australian warranty and all Parramatta Cameras products comply with Australian electrical standards. Should your purchase prove faulty within the warranty period you can return your product to Parramatta Cameras and we will forward your repair to the genuine supplier repair department at no charge to you.  Parramatta Cameras is wholly Australian owned and operated and also believes in supporting Australian companies.

What are the benefits of buying genuine Australian stock?

  • Peace of mind 
    By buying genuine stock you know you’re getting a legitimate product and have support if anything goes awry in the purchasing process
  • Customer service
    Buying a genuine item from a local store means you’ve got support every step of the way – ask as many questions as you need before, during and after you’ve purchased the product. If you’re local to one of our stores, you can even come in store and spend time testing out a display model of the camera. At Parramatta Cameras, we’re all photographers so you can rely on us for honest, first hand advice.
  • Complying with Australian standards
    Grey import items are intended for sale in designated countries overseas – so may not have the appropriate power outlet or voltage for use within Australia – meaning you may then need to purchase replacements for these important accessory items 
  • Protections under Australian Law 
    Goods purchased overseas may not be covered under the rights you’re entitled to under Australian Law with the ACCC – such as getting refund for change of mind, or a repair if the product arrives to you damaged or faulty.  The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) warn that “when dealing with internationally based companies, you may not be protected by Australian law.”*
  • No Hidden Taxes 
    It’s worth noting, some grey import retailers have their warehouses overseas – so the price you pay may not include GST. When the product then arrives in Australia you may be responsible for paying the GST before customs will release the item to you. Think of it as a hidden cost. 
  • Manufacturer Benefits 
    Things such as loyalty programs (such as Nikon’s My Nikon Life), cashback promotions, and professional equipment servicing programs such as Canon’s CPS (which includes priority service, and in some cases free loan of equipment while your gear is under service) are only offered on items purchased with a full manufacturer’s warranty.
  • Ability to claim TRS
    Australian stock product means full eligibility for the TRS Scheme, as well as ability to claim GST for eligible businesses. For eligible customers this means a claim back of the 10% GST paid on purchase, which is a significant saving in cost. 

 

What are the risks of buying grey market products?

  • No manufacturer warranty
    Many grey market resellers advertise a "local warranty" on their products. It’s important to make a clear distinction between “Local Warranty” and “Genuine Manufacturer's Warranty” with the latter being exclusively available through official Australian stock resellers such as Parramatta Cameras. In the case of the former, the warranty is only supported by the grey market reseller themselves and in many situations the repair process involves your item being sent overseas to be repaired and then sent back resulting in long turnaround times and increased chances of damage, loss and other complications. Conversely, repairs on Australian stock items (with a Genuine Manufacturer's Warranty) are repaired only by authorised repairers of the particular product in Australia, ensuring that the repair is performed correctly and quickly.
  • No local customer or technical support
    Many grey importers will not offer local customer or technical supportmeaning if you have any technical questions during or after you’ve purchased an item, it can be hard to get the answers you need accurately and on time 
  • Product could be fake or have fake accessories or parts
    We have heard cases of customers receiving fake products from grey import retailers, or receiving fake accessories such as batteries and chargers that are from a third party manufacturer and may not work with the camera 
  • Not complying with Australian Standards
    Batteries and chargers from overseas may not comply with Australian standards and can cause electrocution or destruction of the battery or camera as they may have a different voltage output 
  • Hidden Fees 
    Many grey market resellers charge higher shipping fees. Additionally as mentioned above, you’re obliged to pay GST and customs duty on all imported items (which is 5% customs duty + 10% GST on most products, more information on these fees can be found here).
  • No Protection 
    Because in most cases grey-market resellers are overseas businesses that you’re purchasing from, they’re not bound by the Australian Consumer Law. This basically means they’re not legally obliged to honour an advertised warranty, supply products in new condition or supply them at all. As result there have been many cases of unlucky consumers being caught out; receiving used or refurbished products, had parts missing from the package and never receiving a purchased item at all. In these situations, the consumers have no-one to appeal to (such as the ACCC) as such entities are powerless outside the borders of Australia
  • Illegitimate serial numbers
    We have heard of numerous cases of customers who have bought products, and upon contacting the Australian distributor, finding that the serial number is not a genuine Serial number, within Australia or world wide.For instance, we have know of cases where Nikon DSLR bodies where there serial number actually was for a lens; and also cases where serial numbers on item packaging is different to the camera/lens inside. In the case of an insurance claim for loss or damage this will often mean a risk of the insurer rejecting the claim due to serial number issues. 

  

What is an example of an authorised camera purchase?

Let's consider Canon for a second. Canon Inc. have an authorised distributor in Australia (Canon Australia). Canon Australia then supplies genuine stock to authorised retailers like Parramatta Cameras, who then supply the customers of Australia. This is an authorised camera purchase and the stock would come with full manufacturers warranty from Canon Australia, as well as being eligible for cash backs and other manufacturer promotions. Plus, you get to hang out with us! 


What is an example of a grey market camera purchase?

Canon Inc. have an authorised distributor in China (with stock intended only for the Chinese market). This distributor in China then supplies this stock globally to retailers anywhere in the world. As such, the stock then gets sold to an Australian retailer and shipped to Australia, to be sold in an Australian retail store. The stock is then purchased by an Australian customer – meaning the stock purchased is grey stock - as it was only intended for sale within China, not overseas.

  

As with so many other things, the devil is in the detail. Whether it’s 18% grey or 100% grey, it’s not going to be covered by a manufacturer’s warranty, and you never know what might happen if the goods arrive to you faulty, or what hidden fees and taxes you might be liable for.

 



Grey Market Importers Online - Beware!

Grey Market Importers do not purchase their cameras from Australian suppliersThis means that should your item prove faulty within the warranty period you may need to return the product to an overseas address (which can take months) or your item may be repaired by someone who has not been certified to perform such work.
