TELL YOUR STORY.
Every journey is a story waiting to be told.
A thousand little moments hidden between a beginning and an end.
Sure, everyone likes the mountain top. But the real story happens on the way.
Embrace the sidesteps, missed chances and mishaps because adventure lives in those moments. The story makes the journey worth it.
NOW GO TELL YOURS.
LIKE YOUR FAVOURITE PAIR OF BOOTS.
The OM-5 is not here to be flashy, steal the show, be in the way of your experience or even try to be the sole reason for your adventure. It is rather like your favourite pair of boots that lead you onto trails unknown; that bag that always has what you need or that friend that helps you see the world in a beautifully different way.
LESS HEFT = MORE FUN.
The OM-5 is designed to stay with you but not get in the way of your experience. It is so compact that you can chuck it in your favourite bag or let it dangle unnoticeably on your shoulder until inspiration strikes. It will be ready for your story but won’t be a tiresome load.
EMBRACE SURPRISES WITH WEATHER SEALING.
The best stories happen through mishaps. It’s time to embrace those moments: the OM-5 features class-leading IP53 dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof design so you can keep telling that story, like your favourite pair of boots that just keep on going.
NEVER GET SHAKEN UP AGAIN WITH 5-AXIS IS
The OM-5 can stabilise the shakiest of situations with up to 6.5 steps of compensation (or 7.5 with compatible Sync-IS lenses). That makes longer handheld exposures and blur-free telephoto pictures a walk in the park. Our stacked 20MP BSI Live MOS Sensor is a leap forward for image quality. It uses a revolutionary new way of arranging imaging elements to let more light in while boosting low light performance. Your photos will have breathtaking resolution with low noise and rich dynamic range of expression from shadows to highlights.
FORGET FILTERS— GET IN THE CREATIVE FLOW WITH LIVEND.
Make the most of moving subjects by changing how you see motion with LiveND. With up to four steps of effect (ND16), you can transform what seems like a seemingly mundane moment into a magical one — even with the widest of lenses.
BIG ON DEMAND. HANDHELD HI-RES.
Some scenes have so much to say that to do a moment justice, you need to go big. With the OM-5, you can go big on pictures without having to go big on the size of your gear
Handheld Hi-Res lets you capture amazing 50MP files without lugging around a heavier camera and tripod.
GET THAT DUST OFF YOUR SENSOR WITH SUPERSONIC WAVE FILTER.
Worry-free lens changes on your adventures. The OM-5 features a Supersonic Wave Filter (SSWF), which vibrates over 30,000 times per second to instantly remove dust from the surface of the image sensor.
NEVER MISS THE MOMENT. 121 POINT PDAF AUTOFOCUS.
Focus on the moment, not the focus. The OM-5 features a 121-point All Cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor to enable dependable focusing in all situations and for all your scenes. Capture the majesty of wildlife with ease and use large aperture lenses with confidence, knowing the story you captured will be in clear focus.
FOCUS ON WHO’S IMPORTANT. IMPROVED FACE/EYE AF.
Taking pictures of the people you care about should be all smiles and no fuss. Improved face and eye autofocus make capturing both single and groups of people effortless. With a touch of the screen or a flick of a button, you get to decide whose story you want to tell.
DON’T JUST DREAM THE NIGHT AWAY. CAPTURE IT WITH STARRY SKY AF.
No more guesswork or complicated manual focusing when capturing the night sky. Starry Sky AF makes astrophotography accessible through a dedicated night sky auto-focusing mode. Combine it with other computational photography features like Live Composite and a galaxy of possibilities is just a click away!
