The OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mirrorless Camera is a fast, versatile, and compact Micro 4/3 camera that boasts a powerful new 20MP stacked CMOS image sensor. Key features include:

  • 20MP Live MOS sensor; TruePic X image processor

  • 10 fps still shooting; 120 fps with electronic shutter

  • DCI/UHD 4K 60p 10-bit 4:2:0 video capture

  • Cross Quad Pixel Phase-Detection autofocus system

Still-Shooting Powerhouse. The OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mirrorless Camera offers continuous RAW or JPEG shooting at 120 fps when working with the silent electronic shutter and fixed focus, up to 50 fps with the silent electronic shutter and AF/AE. With the mechanical shutter, you can reach up to 10 fps using AF/AE. The TruePic X image processor allows a native ISO range of 200 to 102400, which is expandable down to ISO 80.

Pro Capture Mode. Pro Capture Mode is basically a buffering system for stills. With a half-press of the shutter button, the camera starts taking full resolution JPEGs or RAW images. A full button press saves the current image and the previous 35 frames. If you hold the shutter button in this mode, you can shoot continuously using the silent electronic shutter.

Creative Shooting Modes. There are four Creative Shooting Modes at your disposal, each of which serves a unique purpose. High Res Shot Mode composites a series of twelve shots into a single high-res frame in a mere five seconds. Live ND Mode digitally simulates an optical ND filter to give you long exposure/slow shutter speed effects. Live Composite Mode builds up an exposure over time without overexposing elements within the frame, making it ideal for night shooting, light painting, and long exposures. Finally, Focus Stacking Mode automatically generates images with varied points of focus and combines them to produce an extended depth of field.

DCI/UHD 4K Video. The OM-1 supports DCI/UHD 4K capture at up to 60p and 10-bit 4:2:0, and you can record Full HD at up to 240 fps for slow-motion playback. You can record in-camera time-lapse up to UHD 4K from 5 fps to 50 fps, you can use HLG picture mode for in-camera HDR recording, and you get 12-bit 4:4:4 RAW output via the micro-HDMI port when you’re using an external recorder. You can use the built-in stereo mic to capture scratch audio, or you can use the 3.5mm external mic jack to record. There’s even a headphone jack included so you can monitor everything.

Cross Quad Pixel Autofocus System. The on-sensor phase-detection autofocus uses a Cross Quad Pixel system that effectively splits each pixel into four pixels, which makes for very precise tracking even in poorly lit conditions. Its 1053 individual points fully cover the sensor and perform at up to 120 fps. The focusing system uses AI to automatically detect and quickly track an array of subject types, from vehicles to animals to humans to faces and eyes, while improved processing means focusing speed should not be a concern.

Image Stabilization. The five-axis sensor-shift image stabilization system accounts for 7 stops of shake in basically all directions, keeping your image rock solid when you’re shooting handheld. When paired with select lenses with optical image stabilization, the system can compensate for up to seven stops.

Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth offer simple connections to smartphones and tablets. This allows you to share images, view and download images, and make camera exposure and focus adjustments on the device while shooting, all via the O.I.Share app for iOS and Android.

Design and Features. For framing and composition, there’s a 5.76m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder with 0.83x magnification and a 3.0-inch 1.62m-dot rear touchscreen LCD with 270° of swivel to let you shoot from just about any angle you’d like. The body is magnesium alloy, making it light and strong. It’s weather sealed and good in the cold down to 14°F. Dual UHS-II SD memory card slots give you flexible file management. The BLX-1 battery is rated for up to 520 shots per charge, and can be charged in-body via the USB Type-C port.
