The Adventurer's Flagship

At the crossroads of image quality, portability, speed, and reliability, the OM-1, from OM SYSTEM is a flagship mirrorless camera built for adventure. Characterized by its versatile Micro Four Thirds platform, the OM-1 meshes quick and nimble stills performance and apt 4K video recording with unique computational imaging tools and a hardy, dependable physical design.

20MP Stacked Sensor and TruePic X

Micro Four Thirds BSI Live MOS Sensor

Newly designed 20.4MP Micro Four Thirds Live MOS sensor features a stacked BSI design that offers improved readout speeds, noise levels, and greater dynamic range than previous designs. This sensor structure improves noise performance by two stops and dynamic range by one stop for improved image quality, especially at higher ISOs.

TruePic X Processor

Compared to previous-generation processors, the TruePic X offers 3x-faster processing speeds along with a 120 fps sensor readout rate for faster, more responsive shooting. The processor also contributes to a wide ISO range and quick continuous shooting rates:

  • Native sensitivity range from ISO 200-102400, expandable down to ISO 80.
  • Continuous shooting up to 10 fps with full-time AF/AE and a buffer of 169 raw frames when working with a mechanical shutter.
  • If working with a silent electronic shutter, 20 fps shooting is possible with full-time AF/AE and a buffer of 108 raw frames. SH1 and SH2 are blackout-free high-speed shooting modes, offering rates up to 120 fps without AF/AE in SH1 and 50 fps with AF/AE in SH2.
  • Pro Capture mode begins recording before you release the shutter; able to record at 120 fps with fixed focus or 50 fps with continuous AF, this mode begins recording once the shutter button is half-pressed and then stops once the button has been fully pressed. Up to 70 additional frames can be recorded with this mode, serving as a safeguard for times when the action occurs just before you press the shutter button.

Cross Quad Pixel AF and AI Detection

Featuring a unique design, on-sensor phase-detection AF uses a Cross Quad Pixel system that effectively splits each pixel into four sub-pixels for cross-sensor performance that is more adept at focusing in tricky lighting conditions. The focusing system has 1053 individual points, which fully cover the sensor and perform at up to 120 fps to suit virtually all recording methods.

Benefitting from the Cross Quad Pixel AF structure, color and contrast information from the sensor can also be used to create a detailed depth map of the image for more refined subject detection and tracking accuracy. Using AI, this focusing system can automatically detect a range of subject types, like cars, motorcycles, airplanes, helicopters, trains, birds, dogs, cats, and humans, as well as faces and eyes. And, compared to earlier iterations of this focusing system, improved processing now makes focusing performance 2x more accurate and 3x faster.

Image Stabilization and Computational Photography

5-Axis Image Stabilization

In-body 5-axis image stabilization compensates for up to 8 stops of camera shake, allowing for the use of significantly longer shutter speeds when shooting handheld. This advanced sensor-shift system compensates for 7 stops of camera shake with the body alone, and an additional stop is provided when select IS-enabled lenses are attached.

Handheld Assist relies on this stabilization technology for more stable framing, which is especially helpful when working with longer focal length lenses. Additional, in-body image stabilization also contributes to a variety of additional shooting modes and camera functions, including High Res Shot modes, Handheld Live Composite, and an advanced dust reduction system.

Creative Shooting Modes

  • High Res Shot—Benefitted by the stacked sensor design, processing power, and image stabilization system, this mode composites a series of 12 shots into a single higher resolution frame in just 5 seconds. Tripod High Res Shots mode produces an 80MP raw file and Handheld High Res Shot mode produces a 50MP raw file, and both modes offer up to 2 stops of reduced noise and improved color information.
  • Live ND—Now supporting up to ND64 (6-stop), this unique function digitally simulates the effects of an optical neutral density filter for produce long exposure/slow shutter speed effects.
  • Live Composite—Perfect for long exposures, nighttime shooting, and light painting applications, this unique mode gradually builds up an exposure over time without overexposing key elements within the frame. This mode works to only record newly detected light sources over time, and allows live view monitoring as an image develops. A Handheld Live Composite mode is available, too.
  • Focus Stacking—This mode automatically records 15 sequential frames while shifting the plane of focus slightly between each frame, then composites these exposures into a single image that exhibits an extended depth of field.

DCI/UHD 4K Video Recording

  • DCI/UHD 4K video recording is supported at up to 60p and 10-bit 4:2:0 sampling. Full HD recording is possible at high-speed rates up to 240 fps for slow-motion playback.
  • 12-bit raw output is supported via the micro-HDMI port when working with an optional compatible external recorder, such as the Atomos Ninja V or Ninja V+.
  • HLG picture mode permits in-camera HDR recording and an OM-Log gamma allows for greater color grading range when adjusting the footage in post-production.
  • In-camera time-lapse production is possible, up to UHD 4K with frame rates from 5 fps to 30 fps.
  • Both 3.5mm microphone and headphone ports contribute to greater audio recording control and quality.

Reliable, Adventure-Ready Design

EVF and LCD

  • Electronic viewfinder features a 5.76m-dot OLED panel, offering a bright and clean means for eye-level monitoring. The finder has a 0.83x-equivalent magnification, a 21mm eye point, and 120 fps refresh rate for realistic motion rendering.
  • 3.0" 1.62m-dot LCD touchscreen features a vari-angle design with 270° of swivel to suit working from high, low, and front-facing angles.

Durable, Weather-Sealed Build

  • Lightweight, durable magnesium alloy body design is dust- and splash-resistant with an IP53 rating for ensured use in trying weather conditions.
  • Tough design is also freezeproof-tested for reliable use in temperatures down to 14°F.
  • Durable shutter design is rated for 400,000 shutter actuations.

Practical and Intuitive Handling

  • Utilizing the new BLX-1 battery, the OM-1 is rated for 520 shots per charge. In-body battery charging is possible via the USB type-C port, and the camera itself can also be powered using a USB-connected power bank.
  • Dual UHS-II SD memory card slots for flexible file saving, including making in-camera backups, splitting file types, or just for having additional memory on hand for overflow storage.
  • Updated menu configuration makes it easier to find different settings, confirm settings selections, and understand why grayed-out items cannot be selected.
  • Separate AEL and AF-ON buttons for easier, more direct control over the different functions. Both buttons can also be customized to adjust different settings.
  • Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (5 and 2.4GHz) allow wireless file transferring and remote control over the camera via the OI.Share app for mobile devices.

OM SYSTEM OM-1 Reviews

Amazing camera

By Jannik
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-12

The new OM-1 is an amazing cutting edge camera with an image quality much higher than you would expect for the size of the format. The Zuiko lenses are nothing but little gems. Some of the computational modes are power thirsty and I needed the accessory grip which also made the small camera body more comfortable in my large hand. Highly recommended.

Like an Oly EM-1iii On Steroids

By Jeff
Rated 5 out of 5

The OM System OM-1 camera seems at first to be an evolution of the Olympus EM-1 series. My experience with the camera does not yet include action shooting so I will not comment on the continuous auto-focus improvements. For more casual subjects, focusing is quick, decisive, and accurate. Hand Held High Resolution mode really is better than the EM-1iii. The capture is noticeably quicker and the processing is much faster. The resulting image files have the promised higher resolution and lower noise. Image stabilization is what we expect from the Olympus brand-Arguably the best. The new EVF is bright and clear and sharp. All is not perfect, however: OMD took a page from the Canon R5 and made the histogram almost invisible against a bright sky background. Fortunately, the overexposure warning remains. The controls are slightly revised, and some users have complained. Well, it does not promise to be a revised EM-1iii. The control wheels are recessed a bit and that makes them slightly less accessible, BUT, that also makes them harder to change accidentally, so, for me, that nets out. The one change that I am not adjusting to quickly is the front control wheel's new position well below the shutter button. I will get there, but that change is puzzling. The deeper grip is nice and adds to handling security. The new menu design works, although something seems to be missing when I compare it to previous EM-1 series menus, which seem to allow endless options. I have hardly begun to actually use the camera, but so far, it is what I expected - It is a high performance machine with capabilities that will surpass most photographers' needs.

Fantastic camera

Still putting it through its paces, but coming from a Fuji XT3 I've been very happy with the OM-1 so far. Small and lightweight but with a very comfortable grip and feels like it would be at home in rainy or dirty outdoor conditions. The stabilization has been really great for both photos and video. I primarily do macro and the stabilization has been very noticeable when doing natural light shots. Focus bracketing for macro seems to work very well with this system as well. Autofocus is very snappy and the focus tracking is very good (I've used it mostly for dogs). Can't wait to try out some of the other features like live nd, live composite etc.

OM-1 worth the wait.

I've had the OM-1 about two weeks and love it. I'm basically a Canon full frame user but I wanted something smaller to use walking around parks, hiking, etc. This camera is it. I love the size and the picture quality is excellent. The menu system is easy to understand and intuitive. This camera is a great addition to my photography toolbox.

OM-1 at last

By Steven
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-26

I waited 2 months for the OM-1 and it was worth it. I have a OM-D-E-M1X and many of the m.zuiko lenses but anxiously awaited the arrival of the OM-1. I am an advanced amateur and especially enjoy adventure and wildlife photography and this is perfect for me. I don't want to lug around heavy equipment and long lenses at my age (been there and done that with my Nikon equipment) and the 4/3 format works well for me. The resolution is more than adequate for my needs (a higher resolution sensor would be nice though) and the special computational features are especially useful with my other interest of astrophotography. The lenses could be faster but the other features of the camera and system with advanced stabilization do help in low light. I have not had the camera long so this is only my initial impression. I would certainly highly recommend this system for adventure/wildlife photography with a size that is very manageable.

OM-1 First Impressions

By Emmett
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-25

After using a EM-1 MKII for several years and lamenting the passing of Olympus as a camera manufacturer, I was pleased to hear that the OM System would carry on through a new company. I decided to take the plunge and buy the new OM-1, and so far I'm not disappointed. It is packed with features and improvements over the previous EM-1 while still feeling familiar. It's a little bigger and heavier than the EM-1 MKII and feels comfortable in my hands. Some of the functions have been relocated as compared to the EM-1, and I am slowly adding my personal choices to the customizable settings. While I haven't used it extensively so far, I'm finding that the new image sensor is producing images that seem a bit more vivid, and I really like the AI focusing features for birds, cars, animals, etc. I also like the new high resolution view finder. So far I'm very happy with my new OM-1 and look forward to putting it to good use.

The Best MIrrorless Camera Ever Made!

By William

Date: 2022-05-11

The OM System OM-1 can be described as a computer masquerading as a camera. It leads the pack in 'computational photography' with features such as Pro Capture, Live Composition and Subject Tracking. Combined with the Olympus 150-400 it excels when photographing birds. The attached photo of a Cliff Swallow simply wasn't possible with my Olympus OM1 Mark III.

Major improvements with OM Systems

I was a wee bit skeptical with all of the hype pre-release...however, it is all TRUE! The speed, the AF targeting capabilities for birds-in-flight is fantastic! Works beautifully with my 300f4 and 40-150f2.8...I can't ask for more...except the availability to buy another one!
