High image quality that goes beyond the expectations of the sensor size

This model features a high-end compact, lightweight body unique to OM SYSTEM, including the new 20 Megapixel1 Stacked BSI Live MOS sensor, and the latest TruePic X image processor, which is three times faster than previous models. The OM SYSTEM OM-1 delivers high image quality that goes beyond the expectations of the sensor size. Not only does it take full advantage of high-resolution M.Zuiko Digital lens performance, delivering our highest ever resolution2, but new noise processing technology increases the maximum normal sensitivity to ISO 25600, and expanded maximum sensitivity to ISO 102400. Furthermore, the dynamic range has been improved thanks to the latest image processing technology. These improvements deliver a richer range of tonal expressions than ever before, from shadows to highlights.

The high-performance image stabilization in the OM SYSTEM OM-1 delivers up to 8.0 steps3 of compensation with 5-axis sync IS, and up to 7 steps4 with the body alone. The new Handheld Assist feature makes it easy to capture slow shutter speed effects that previously required a tripod.

Computational photography functions that empower the photographer to further expand their imaging expressions

Photographic expressions that have traditionally required special equipment and a computer to composite images are available in the OM SYSTEM OM-1. Thanks to computational photography (advanced digital image processing) technology, these imaging features have been incorporated in this interchangeable lens camera at an early stage. The OM SYSTEM OM-1 uses a combination of the new TruePic X image processor, the new image sensor, and the latest digital technologies to make computational photography features better and even easier to use. When paired with high-performance M.Zuiko PRO lenses, the system makes it possible to capture a greater range of imaging expressions only possible with the OM SYSTEM OM-1.

High-Res Shot

The processing time has been significantly reduced. Handheld High-Res Shot mode takes approximately five seconds to merge. Popular for landscape photos due to the ability to capture high-resolution approximately 50 Megapixel images by merging multiple images; and Tripod High-Res Shot, which creates ultra-high-resolution approximately 80 Megapixel images. Composite processing technology reduces noise by approximately two steps for amazingly high pixel count and low noise. A dedicated button is also included on the camera to quickly switch between normal shooting and Handheld High-Res Shot/Tripod High Res Shot for improved usability.

Live ND

Create slow shutter speed effects as though you were using an ND filter up to ND64 (six steps) (ND2 – ND64). When LV Simulation is activated, you can check the slow shutter speed effects in the viewfinder and on the LCD monitor before shooting and create the same effects while using ultra-wide-angle lenses that cannot accommodate an ND filter.

Live Composite

In this setting, Lighten Composite is used to add only the brighter sections to the composite image to prevent the common problem of images that are too bright overall when shooting long exposures, resulting in beautiful photos with plenty of variation. This feature is now compatible with image stabilization and can be used during handheld shooting.

Focus Stacking

This feature alters the focus to capture and composite multiple shots for recording photos that are in focus from the foreground to the background. The compositing time has been dramatically reduced for easier use.

HDR Shooting

Multiple images at differing exposures are merged to create one shot with a wide dynamic range, including highlights and shadows.

High-speed performance of newly developed autofocus and dramatically improved performance for maximum 50 fps5 sequential shooting with AF/AE tracking

A quad-division photodiode configuration allows for On-chip Phase Detection in both vertical and horizontal directions. 1,053-point, all cross-type, Cross Quad Pixel AF is incorporated; designed to focus on various patterns of subjects across all pixels and the entire shooting range. The high-speed calculation capabilities of the new TruePic X processor and the new AF algorithm enable high-speed, high precision focusing on the subject no matter where it is in the frame. Furthermore, this model is equipped with AI Detection AF,

which was developed using deep learning technology. In addition to greater than ever high-speed, high-precision subject recognition and tracking, this model can recognize formula cars, motorcycles, aeroplanes, helicopters, trains, and birds, as well as animals (dogs and cats). In addition to C-AF, this functionality is also supported with S-AF for shooting a wider variety of scenes. The detection precision, tracking performance, and responsiveness of Face Priority/Eye Priority AF have been improved significantly.

There have also been exponential improvements to sequential shooting performance, reaching up to 50 fps blackout-free AF/AE tracking at approximately 20.37 Megapixel, and up to 120 fps, AF/AE locked ultra-high-speed sequential shooting. When using Pro Capture, which is designed for capturing shots that are not possible during normal shooting, you can enjoy sequential shooting up to 50 fps (AF/AE tracking) and up to 120 fps (AF/AE locked).

The camera body features enhanced dustproof and splashproof performance, along with a high-speed, high-resolution electronic viewfinder

The dustproof and splashproof performance is achieved by incorporating sealing materials at the appropriate locations on the tough, lightweight magnesium alloy body, ensuring IP53 dustproof and splashproof protection class6, and freezeproof performance to -10°C. Because this model is compact, lightweight, and features dustproof and splashproof performance, it makes for a powerful ally when shooting in punishing environments. The high-performance EVF is equipped with approximately 5.76 million dot resolution, a viewfinder magnification of up to 1.65x, a display delay of 0.005 seconds7, and a 120 fps high-speed display, to ensure optimal shooting comfort. Not only does it feature all the best facets of an optical viewfinder, but it also offers the advantages of a digital viewfinder, making it possible to view subjects and check exposure, even in dark locations. The menu screen configuration has been completely redesigned on the OM SYSTEM OM-1. Items have been split, merged, and reclassified, and descriptions have been simplified to make it easier to find the desired functions, and make changing settings simpler for first-time users.

Enhanced video functions for creators (10bit 4K 60p, Full HD 240p)

Stable handheld video recording is possible thanks to a compact, lightweight body and industry-leading image stabilization. Creative video functions include 4K 60p for smooth, high-definition videos, and high-speed movies with Full HD videos at a maximum of 240p. The camera also supports H.264 (8bit), H.265 (10bit), and Multi-Frame Rate for recording video clips over 30 minutes in length. In addition to RAW data output up to 12 bit, 4:4:4 to external devices for advanced post-production tasks, the OM SYSTEM OM-1 supports OM-Log for a greater level of freedom over imaging expressions thanks to colour grading, which allows users to capture highlights and shadows without overexposing or underexposing shots. The new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)8 video picture mode has been added for easier HDR video recording.

Other Features
  • Reliable SSWF (Supersonic Wave Filter) dust reduction system that vibrates at a speed of more than 30,000 times per second to instantly remove dirt and dust from the image sensor
  • A highly durable shutter unit that clears 400,000 shutter actuation (according to in-house testing conditions)
  • Staggered layout UHS-II compatible dual SD card slots make it easier to remove recording media
  • Five rating categories in the on-camera rating system
  • Night view mode makes it possible to view subjects even in dark environments
  • Starry Sky AF makes focusing on stars easier than ever
  • Record shooting location information with minimal power drain (smartphone connection)
  • Equipped with an independent AEL button and AF-ON button
