Product Overview

Olympus Air A01 is a unique ultra-compact mirrorless camera in the Micro Four Thirds-mount system. Introduced by Olympus in 2015, it comes with a micro four thirds sensor with 16 MP (4608 x 3456) resolution.
Like the Alpha QX1 from Sony unveiled a year earlier, the Air A01 has a "mount-only" form factor. It needs to be used with mobile devices for many of its functions.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day. One should note that the Olympus Air A01 has a 200 base ISO, which is not conducive to getting the cleanest images. The 10.0 fps burst rate serves enthusiasts well enough, though some professionals may find it limiting.
The Olympus Air A01 comes with 81 autofocus points.
