      LIVE ND

      Who needs to carry ND filters when your camera has them built-in? The OM-1’s Live ND Mode covers up to ND64 giving you a wide range of effects. Preview slow shutter speed effects in the viewfinder before shooting.


      Sometimes you just need more resolution than a 20MP image. Now you can capture a 50MP shot at the push of a button. Better still, you won’t need a tripod or other stabilizing equipment. Just hold your camera and shoot. The OM-1 automatically takes 12 shots** and instantly merges them into one high resolution photo with spectacular detail. **Reduced from 16 images vs E-M1 Mark III, E-M1X

      Every photographer knows that capturing long exposures is challenging. But Live Composite Mode makes it easier with our in-body image stabilization system. Capturing dramatic shots of traffic tails, fireworks, or painted light can now be taken handheld. The camera takes a series of continuous photos with the same exposure time then combines them all into one shot.


      Focus Stacking gives your images a whole new artistic dimension by adding a deep focus from the foreground to the background. It’s created when the OM-1 automatically takes a series of shots then stiches them together into one beautifully rendered composite image. Focus Stacking Mode is mostly used in macro photography to add depth and drama to images of insects, spider webs and flowers. You can also use it in landscape photography to convey a strong sense of place.

      There are fast cameras. Then there’s the OM-1. You’ll find it has all the speed you could want to easily capture the fastest moving subjects, and life itself.

      • FAST 120FPS EVF

        The high-speed Electronic Viewfinder operates at 120fps and helps you clearly see subjects, even in the dark.


        With an astounding 1,053 all cross-type focus points, you’ll track, focus and capture the fastest, most challenging subjects with unparalleled precision.

      • 120FPS BURST RAW,

        Talk about blazing speed. Shoot a continuous 120fps of 20MP in RAW and ensure you’ll never miss a critical moment.

      EVF 3D Diagram

      FAST 120FPS EVF

      See the world as it really is through our Electronic Viewfinder. It works with Live View so you can see images in real time and at 120fps gives you a clear view in low light or even in the dark. Nearly 6 million dots offer spectacular resolution while a display delay of a barely perceptible 0.005 seconds keeps pace with the fastest moving subjects.


      The more autofocus tracking points, the better. That’s why the OM-1 has 1,053 point all Cross Quad Pixel AF for high-precision focusing. Every point is cross-type, enabling detection of vertical and horizontal lines for unmatched accuracy. It’s advanced autofocusing technology that ensures you’ll capture it all, anytime, anywhere.

      When you’re in a shooting situation and need lots of speed to capture a quick moving subject or split-second action, count on the OM-1. Using the silent electronic shutter you’ll be able to take a burst of 120fps in RAW. In AF/AE Tracking, you can take a burst of 50fps without distracting blackouts or display lags. Always know exactly what you’re shooting.


      When you’re shooting portraits, faces are everything. Our newly revamped Advanced Face Detection AF offers greater precision, tracking and response to help you take portraits to a whole new level of beautiful.

      bird in flight


      Concentrate on framing your shot instead of focusing. The OM-1 is able to detect and lock on certain subjects all by itself. It’s called AI Detection AF. The camera identifies subjects like a car, plane, train, dog or a bird — you choose the mode — and it automatically pinpoints, then focuses. All you have to do is compose your shot and let the camera do the rest.


      Capturing action that lasts a fraction of a second is nearly impossible. But not with our Pro Capture Mode. When you press the shutter button down halfway, it begins buffering a running series of photos at 120fps. When you see the moment you want, fully press the shutter and the camera saves that moment plus the buffered shots. Never miss a shot again because of a slow reaction.

      AF-ON Button diagram


      When you’re busy composing, focusing, and shooting switching between manual and autofocus slows you down. That’s why we added a dedicated AF button. It’s right by the AEL button so you’ll always be able to find it quickly.

    The pinnacle of Micro Four Thirds

    I've had my Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III almost since launch, and I'm pleased to say that the OM System OM-1 brings improvements in every important area. It's the best that Micro Four Thirds has to offer and I'm incredibly happy to have upgraded. Key points follow: <br /> <br />- Build quality is outstanding. As if the E-M1 Mark III wasn't good enough, the OM-1 is built like a tank, and even the little things are made to last. The drive and focus mode buttons, which had shallow travel on the older model, now have much more feedback, and the power switch is rock-solid. The grip is substantial, and it truly feels like you're working with a serious professional tool. <br />- Image quality has improved a bit over the previous model. While it's not going to match larger sensors, high-ISO grain is finer and there's a bit more dynamic range. This makes it easier to get fine details from the shadows when working with RAWs in post. <br />- Autofocus performance is paramount in a camera designed for action photography, especially birds in flight, and the OM-1 is a massive leap forward. The new sensor uses a quad-Bayer-like design in which every pixel is divided into four photosites for cross-type phase detection AF across the entire frame. This works in tandem with a new AI subject-recognition system, an enhanced version of the system in the E-M1X, which can detect and lock onto certain types of subjects. In my limited experience thus far with bird photography on the OM-1, the performance difference is substantial, and I've gotten shots that were impossible with the E-M1 Mark III. And while it's not perfect, it's been stated that the full processing power of the TruePic X engine has yet to be utilized, so it will only get better with firmware updates. <br />- 50 fps continuous shooting with focus and exposure tracking... hoo boy. While the buffer is a bit shallower than I'd like at 90 shots, to have this kind of speed on tap is a revelation. This speed does come at a cost: you'll need to be prepared to pick through hundreds, even thousands of images in post. And if you don't need tracking, you can do up to 120 fps. <br />- The control layout is very similar to that of the E-M1 Mark III, but the user interface and menus have seen a significant redesign. Olympus has had a reputation for very complex menu systems in their cameras, and while there's still a significant learning curve, the new setup is more intuitive than before. <br />- Little improvements here and there round out the experience. The OM-1 can charge and run simultaneously when using a 27W or higher USB Power Delivery charger or power bank; the E-M1 Mark III could do either, but not both at once. Handheld High Res Shot now requires only 12 shots rather than 16, and the faster sensor and processing engine dramatically reduce the time needed to get a 50-megapixel image. Both SDXC memory card slots now support UHS-II speeds, the OLED EVF provides a crisper view, and a larger battery means longer runtimes between charges. <br /> <br />All told, the OM-1 is a very compelling camera, not just for bird or action photography, but for pretty much any application. Sensor size isn't everything, and having a camera you can actually take with you for long journeys can outweigh the image-quality disadvantages of a smaller sensor. <br /> <br />OM Digital Solutions has proven a worthy heir to the Olympus legacy in the OM System OM-1.

    Major Improvement!!

    Toward the end of 2021 and earlier this year, OM Systems began leaking and promoting a new camera. Some YouTubers and others scoffed at the thought of great improvement. Most believed that the M4/3 system had reached its ceiling. Just a few years back I had owned an Olympus OMD-EM5. It had its limitations, however, the portability increased the use and spontaneity. The full-frame bodies started out light and relatively small, but the lenses quickly became boat anchors. <br /> <br />I AM HAPPY. The images from the new OM 1 are outstanding. The newly revamped sensor HAS made a difference. The camera is snappy, the body is really easy to hold with a very nice grip. The revised menu system is more intuitive makes sense and is easy to navigate. <br /> <br />But back to the images. This is the WOW. I was always a bit underwhelmed when transferring images from camera to iMac. (27”) But no more. The images are really rivaling those from the Nikon and Canon. Really competing. OM Systems has brought the fun back! <br />

    Very impressive!

    First day out captured a takeoff sequence of several ducks in Sequential mode/20fps using C-AF+Tracking in bird mode. A fury of wings and water, more than 20 shots in a second, all in focus!! Amazing. Better low light handling also vs my OMD Mk3
