The new OM System OM-5 is a mid-range 20MP Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera designed mostly for stills but with some video capabilities as well. Although its look is a rehash of the earlier OM-D E-M5 Mark III, its processing has been improved to enable computational photography techniques that were previously reserved for more costly cameras.
This micro four-thirds camera has durable dustproof and splashproof performance, as well as freezeproof protection to -10°C, making it ideal for those with an active lifestyle, allowing worry-free photography in harsh environments that many other cameras cannot withstand.
This powerful, yet compact, camera body comes with more features to stimulate creative shooting, such as computational photography capabilities like 50MP Handheld High Res Shot and Live ND, as well as compatibility for vertical video playback on smartphones.
The strong in-body 5-axis image stabilisation, combined with tiny, lightweight M.Zuiko Digital lenses, delivers exceptional image quality in a highly mobile interchangeable lens camera, making it the perfect outdoor adventure camera. The OM-5 is ready to shoot breathtaking photographs at any time, in any location, and in every circumstance.

Tell your story with the OM-5
Every journey is a story waiting to be told. A thousand little moments are hidden between a beginning and an end. Sure, everyone likes the mountain top. But the real story happens on the way. Embrace the sidesteps, missed chances and mishaps because adventure lives in those moments. The story makes the journey worth it. Now go tell yours.
Like your favourite pair of boots.
The OM-5 is not here to be flashy, steal the show, be in the way of your experience or even try to be the sole reason for your adventure. It is rather like your favourite pair of boots that lead you onto trails unknown; that bag that always has what you need or that friend that helps you see the world in a beautifully different way.
Big on demand. Handheld Hi-Res.
Some scenes have so much to say that to do a moment justice, you need to go big. With the OM-5, you can go big on pictures without having to go big on the size of your gear. Handheld Hi-Res lets you capture amazing 50MP files without lugging around a heavier camera and tripod.
Don’t just dream the night away. Capture it with Starry Sky AF.
No more guesswork or complicated manual focusing when capturing the night sky. Starry Sky AF makes astrophotography accessible through a dedicated night sky auto-focusing mode. Combine it with other computational photography features like Live Composite and a galaxy of possibilities is just a click away!
The OM-5 is your personal time machine. Photographing fleeting moments and capturing impossibly fast action is made easy with Pro Capture. Designed to ensure you never miss the decisive moment, Pro Capture continuously adds images to its buffer memory at a maximum of 30 frames per second and at the press of a button, retains the last 14 frames after fully pressing the shutter button. Then simply scroll back like a time machine and pick the perfect moment.
No camera can tell the story for you but the right bit of kit in the right situation can make all the difference in getting the shot or coming home empty-handed. But remember — sometimes missing the shot is just the thing you need to be able to make the most of the moment. The choice is yours.
