OM SYSTEM OM-5 DIGITAL CAMERA BODY SILVER SUMMARY
Content creators who love adventure and the great outdoors, whether capturing 20.4 megapixel photos or 4K video with an ultra compact system, now have the OM System OM-5 Digital Camera Body Silver to choose. This compact micro four thirds camera is the second release from OM System, famed for the ground-breaking flagship OM-1.
The silver body is super-compact and lightweight, yet boasts class-leading 5-axis in-body stabilisation with up to 7.5-stops compensation, when combined with IS compatible M.Zuiko MFT lenses. The 4/3 Live MOS Sensor is paired with a high-speed TruePic IX image processor, which deliver advanced computational photography across a variety of content types. The camera processes no recording limit 4K 30p video, vertical videos for social media, 50 megapixel handheld high-res shots, Live Compositing and up to 30fps RAW in ProCapture mode to name a few.
The camera body is also extensively weather sealed, delivering IP53 class resistance for dust-proof and splash-proof performance with freeze-proof protection to -10°C, perfect for any adventures
LIGHTWEIGHT BODY WITH EFFECTIVE 5-AXIS IMAGE STABILISATION
The OM SYSTEM OM-5 (silver) packs 5-axis Image Stabilisation (IS) into a compact body that measures 125.3 x 85.2 x 49.7 mm and weighs just 366g (body only). IBIS delivers up to 6.5 stops of image stabilisation, which extends to 7.5 stops when combined with a compatible lens, thanks to 5-axis sync IS.
This powerful image stabilisation lets you shoot at slower shutter speeds, which is particularly beneficial where a tripod cannot be used and when travelling. Thanks to the renowned 20.37 million effective pixel Live MOS sensor and the high-performance TruePic IX image processing engine, the OM-5 delivers natural gradations in images with lower noise and high image quality, even at high ISO settings.
The OM-5 is also equipped with a 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor, in order to be able to focus at various locations across the frame. This provides greater freedom for framing your shots and high-precision focusing. Starry Sky AF delivers accurate auto focusing to make it easier to capture astrophotography, which was previously difficult to achieve.
IP53 CLASS WEATHER SEALING
The OM-5 shares IP53 protection class dust-proof and splash-proof performance and freeze-proof protection to -10°C, for the same high level of weather resistance as the flagship OM-1. This allows you to focus on photo opportunities, even during punishing conditions without worrying about ruining equipment due to rain showers, snow or water droplets.
The camera is also equipped with Supersonic Wave Filter (SSWF), which significantly reduces issues with dust and dirt on the image sensor when changing lenses, perfect for those who need to change lenses outdoors. The compact BLS-50 battery and bundled USB-AC adapter can be used to charge the battery while it’s still in the camera.
This model supports Handheld High-Res Shot, which merges multiple images to create approximately 50 Megapixel high-resolution images. With this feature you can enjoy handheld shooting from nearly any angle, while still being able to capture high-resolution images. Merging multiple images not only improves resolution, but also minimises noise for cleaner results. The popular Tripod High-Res Shot is also included on this model, which increases image resolution to around 80 megapixels for large sized printing and high levels of detail, while mounted on a tripod.
