OM-1 ist angekündigt

Avatar UWFotonet | 16. Februar 2022

OM Systems hat die OM-1 angekündigt. Die neue Kamera soll alle bisherigen Modelle toppen und den absoluten “WOW-Faktor” besitzen. Autofokus, Bildstabilisator und Prozessor sollen überzeugend besser sein. Sie wird ab Anfang März erhältlich sein.

Die OM-1 soll das neue MFT-Flagschiff von Olymus werden. Mit ihrem 20MP-Sensor sollen 120 Bilder/s bei voller Auflösung möglich sein. Außerdem besitzt sie einen extrem schnellen Bildsensor.

OM System verspricht das die Motivverfolgung und das Tracking des Autofokus schneller und besser als je zuvor sein sollen. Aber auch beim Bildstabilisator gab es ein großes Upgrade.

Anfang März soll die OM-1 auf dem Markt zu einem Preis von 2199€ erhältlich sein.

Introducing the OM SYSTEM OM-1 Interchangeable Lens
Camera with a New Stacked BSI Live MOS Sensor and Cross
Quad Pixel AF
The New OM SYSTEM Flagship Model Revolutionizes
Emerging Technology and Newly Developed Devices

Bethlehem, PA, February 15, 2022 – OM Digital Solutions is pleased
to announce the introduction of the OM SYSTEM OM-1:

This Micro Four Thirds System standard interchangeable lens camera
features a compact, lightweight design for superior mobility along with high
image quality. It is scheduled to go on sale in early March 2022. As the OM
SYSTEM flagship camera, this model will deliver a one-of-a-kind experience
to customers, driving the desire for photographers to create. This
interchangeable lens camera delivers inspiration in a lightweight design that
users can take along anywhere to capture the precise photos they have in
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. Computational photography
technology has been incorporated, empowering the photographer to utilize
such features as Live Composite and High Res Shot mode, without the
need for advanced shooting techniques, special equipment, or skills,
delivering a rich variety 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 images with high
image quality. This is the next generation Micro Four Thirds camera brought
to you by OM SYSTEM.


1. High image quality that goes beyond the expectations of the sensor

This model features a high-end compact, lightweight body unique to OM
SYSTEM, including the new 20 Megapixel1 Stacked BSI Live MOS sensor,
and the latest TruePic X image processor, which is three times faster than
previous models. The OM SYSTEM OM-1 delivers high image quality that
goes beyond the expectations of the sensor size. Not only does it take full
advantage of high-resolution M.Zuiko Digital lens performance, delivering
our highest ever resolution2
, but new noise processing technology
increases the maximum normal sensitivity to ISO 25600, and an expanded
maximum sensitivity to ISO 102400. Furthermore, the dynamic range has
been improved thanks to the latest image processing technology. These
improvements deliver a richer range of tonal expressions than ever before,
from shadows to highlights.
The high-performance image stabilization in the OM SYSTEM OM-1
delivers up to 8.0 steps3 of compensation with 5-axis sync IS, and up to 7
steps4 with the body alone. The new Handheld Assist feature makes it easy
to capture slow shutter speed effects that previously required a tripod.

2. Computational photography functions that empower the
photographer to further expand their imaging expressions

Photographic expressions that have traditionally required special
equipment and a computer to composite images are available in the OM
SYSTEM OM-1. Thanks to computational photography (advanced digital
image processing) technology, these imaging features have been
incorporated in this interchangeable lens camera at an early stage. The OM
SYSTEM OM-1 uses a combination of the new TruePic X image processor,
the new image sensor, and the latest digital technologies to make
computational photography features better and even easier to use. When
paired with high-performance M.Zuiko PRO lenses, the system makes it
possible to capture a greater range of imaging expressions only possible
with the OM SYSTEM OM-1.

  • High-Res Shot
    The processing time has been significantly reduced. Handheld High-Res
    Shot mode takes approximately five seconds to merge. Popular for
    landscape photos due to the ability to capture high-resolution approximately
    50 Megapixel images by merging multiple images; and Tripod High-Res
    Shot, which creates ultra-high-resolution approximately 80 Megapixel
    images. Composite processing technology reduces noise by approximately
    two steps for amazingly high pixel count and low noise. A dedicated button
    is also included on the camera to quickly switch between normal shooting
    and Handheld High-Res Shot/Tripod High Res Shot for improved usability.
  • Live ND
    Create slow shutter speed effects as though you were using an ND filter up
    to ND64 (six steps) (ND2 – ND64). When LV Simulation is activated, you can
    check the slow shutter speed effects in the viewfinder and on the LCD
    monitor before shooting and create the same effects while using ultra-wideangle lenses that cannot accommodate an ND filter.
  • Live Composite
    In this setting, Lighten Composite is used to add only the brighter sections
    to the composite image to prevent the common problem of images that are
    too bright overall when shooting long exposures, resulting in beautiful
    photos with plenty of variation. This feature is now compatible with image
    stabilization and can be used during handheld shooting.
  • Focus Stacking
    This feature alters the focus to capture and composite multiple shots for
    recording photos that are in focus from the foreground to background. The
    compositing time has been dramatically reduced for easier use.
  • HDR Shooting
    Multiple images at differing exposures are merged to create one shot with a
    wide dynamic range, including highlights and shadows.
