Press release: 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 mind. 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. MAIN FEATURES: 1. High image quality that goes beyond the expectations of the sensor size 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-wide-angle 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. 3. High-speed performance of newly developed autofocus and dramatically improved performance for maximum 50 fps5 sequential shooting with AF/AE tracking A quad-division photo diode configuration allows for On-chip Phase Detection in both vertical and horizontal directions. 1,053-point, all cross-type, Cross Quad Pixel AF is incorporated; designed to focus on various patterns of subjects across all pixels and the entire shooting range. The high-speed calculation capabilities of the new TruePic X processor and the new AF algorithm enable high-speed, high precision focusing on the subject no matter where it is in the frame. Furthermore, this model is equipped with AI Detection AF, which was developed using deep learning technology. In addition to greater than ever high-speed, high-precision subject recognition and tracking, this model can recognize formula cars, motorcycles, airplanes, helicopters, trains, and birds, as well as animals (dogs and cats). In addition to C-AF, this functionality is also supported with S-AF for shooting a wider variety of scenes. The detection precision, tracking performance, and responsiveness of Face Priority/Eye Priority AF have been improved significantly. There have also been exponential improvements to sequential shooting performance, reaching up to 50 fps blackout free AF/AE tracking at approximately 20.37 Megapixel, and up to 120 fps AF/AE locked ultra-high-speed sequential shooting. When using Pro Capture, which is designed for capturing shots that are not possible during normal shooting, you can enjoy sequential shooting up to 50 fps (AF/AE tracking) and up to 120 fps (AF/AE locked). 4. Camera body features enhanced dustproof and splashproof performance, along with a high-speed, high-resolution electronic viewfinder The dustproof and splashproof performance is achieved by incorporating sealing materials at the appropriate locations on the tough, lightweight magnesium alloy body, ensuring IP53 dustproof and splashproof protection class6, and freezeproof performance to -10°C.
