OM SYSTEM brings heavyweight specs to its new OM-1 Micro Four Thirds camera; More info about B&H
New OM SYSTEM OM-1 camera is designed around next-generation image quality, computational photography, speed, reliability, and comprehensive video performance. A newly designed 20.4 MP stacked Micro Four Thirds BSI Live MOS sensor provides two stops of noise performance and an additional stop of dynamic range over previous sensors. The TruePic X processor is 3 times faster than its predecessors and offers a read rate of 120 fps for faster shooting performance, a sensitivity range of ISO 200-102,400 (expandable to ISO 80).

Speed is one of the attributes of the OM-1 and it offers up to 10fps continuous shooting with full-time AF/AE and a raw buffer of 169 frames when using the mechanical shutter. With the electronic shutter, photographers benefit from 20fps shooting with full AF/AE and a raw buffer of 108 frames. In SH1 and SH2 non-blackout shooting modes, the camera delivers a blistering 120 fps without AF/AE and 50 fps with AF/AE. A Pro Capture mode begins image capture before releasing the shutter and records at 120 fps with fixed focus or 50 fps continuous.
These stratospheric frame rates are aided by an advanced autofocus system with Cross Quad Pixel AF and AI detection with 1,053 individual focus points covering the entire sensor and operating at 120 fps. The system detects color and contrast information through the sensor and performs not only eye detection on humans, but also on birds, dogs, cats and detection of non-organic subjects like cars, motorcycles , planes, helicopters and trains. Focusing performance is twice as accurate and 3x faster than previous versions of the focuser.
In-body five-axis image stabilization compensates for up to seven stops of camera shake, enabling handheld shooting at long shutter speeds. Eight stops of compensation are available with select IS-equipped Micro Four Thirds lenses.
the OM-1 brings creative capture inside the camera. Image stabilization, processing power and sensor design combine for a composite High Res Shot feature that mixes a dozen images in five seconds. On a tripod, the system creates 80MP raw files, and when used handheld, a 50MP raw file with two stops of reduced sound performance and improved color rendering. A Live ND mode digitally simulates the effects of an optical neutral density filter up to six stops (ND64) for long exposure effects without having to carry separate filters for your lens. Live Composite mode for night shooting slowly creates additional exposure without blowing out the brightest areas of the frame and allows you to see exposure progression in live view monitoring, which is amazing for light painting and other creative approaches. The camera also supports a portable Focus Stacking mode that records and stacks 15 frames for extended depth of field in close-up shooting.
Video specs are also robust with DCI/UHD 4K recording up to 60p and 10-bit 4:2:0 sampling. Full HD recording at up to 240 fps for slow-motion playback and 12-bit raw output is supported by the micro-HDMI port when working with optional external recorders. HLG picture mode enables in-camera HDR recording and OM-Log gamma offers a wider color grading range for post-production adjustments. In-camera time-lapse capture is available up to UHD 4K with frame rates from 5 fps to 30 fps. The OM-1 features 3.5mm microphone and headphone ports for audio recording and monitoring.
The OM-1’s electronic viewfinder features a 5.76mDot OLED display with 0.83x equivalent magnification, 21mm eyepoint and 120fps refresh rate. The rear LCD screen is a 3.0″ 1.62m-dot touchscreen with a vari-angle design allowing 270° pivot point for working at odd angles.
The OM SYSTEM OM-1 is designed for use in extreme outdoor conditions with a durable magnesium alloy body that resists dust and splashes. IP53 and frost protection up to 14°F. The shutter is rated for 400,000 actuations. The camera battery is rated for 520 shots per charge and in-camera charging is available. Two SD UHS-II memory card slots allow saving backup files or additional memory options.
Joining this new OM-1 camera is the upgrade M.ZUIKO Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO II lens that offers a 24-80mm equivalent focal length and a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture. The lens focuses down to 7.9″ and is also IP53 rated. Accompanied by the all new 12-40mm is the all new M.ZUIKO Digital ED 40-150mm f/4.0 PRO Lens with its 80-300mm equivalent in a compact and lightweight construction; also rated at IP53.
