The OM SYSTEM OM-1 is the culmination of new devices and cutting-edge digital technologies, delivering high image quality that goes beyond the expectation of the sensor size. It also features autofocus and sequential shooting performance that far surpasses conventional models, and dramatically improves basic performance.

We have incorporated computational photography technology at an early stage, empowering the photographer to utilize such features as Live Composite and High Res Shot mode, without the need for advanced shooting techniques or special equipment or skills. The OM SYSTEM OM-1 features enhanced computational photography functions to deliver a rich range of expressive power for more photographic opportunities than ever before.

Thanks to the superb mobility of the Micro Four Thirds system, the OM SYSTEM OM-1 can be taken anywhere at any time, allowing anyone to take advantage of its high performance to capture versatile imaging expressions with high image quality. This is the next generation Micro Four Thirds camera brought to you by OM SYSTEM.

Starry Sky AF
Capturing the galaxy has never been easier. Our Starry Sky AF Mode features two settings to take brilliant astro. Our Speed Priority setting works in tandem with the OM-1’s powerful built-in image stabilization system so you can shoot night skies and not worry about focus. Our Accuracy Priority setting lets you use a tripod and a telephoto lens to pinpoint specific stars with incredible precision. One mode. Two settings. And endless starry photos.

Silent Shooting
Sometimes silence is best. This handy mode shuts off all shutter and electronic sounds — perfect for when you need quiet in discrete settings.
