OM System OM-5 Mirrorless camera body, Silver 

The OM SYSTEM OM-5 packs 5-axis Image Stabilization into a compact body that measures 125.3 x 85.2 x 49.7 mm (WHD) and weighs 366 g (camera body only). It delivers up to 6.5 shutter speed steps of image stabilization, which, when combined with a compatible lens, expands to 7.5 steps thanks to 5-axis sync IS. Powerful image stabilisation enables shooting with slow shutter speed effects in areas where a tripod cannot be used, making it the perfect companion for photo opportunities while traveling. Thanks to the inclusion of the renowned 20.37 million effective pixel Live MOS sensor and the high-performance TruePic IX image processing engine, this model delivers natural gradations in images with minimal noise and high image quality even at high-sensitivity settings.

The OM-5 is equipped with a 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor for focusing on various locations across the frame for greater freedom over framing and high-precision focusing. Starry Sky AF delivers high precision auto focusing for easy astrophotography, something that was previously considered difficult.

IP53 Protection Class weather sealing

The OM SYSTEM OM-5 is equipped with sealing throughout, delivering IP53 protection class dustproof and splashproof performance with freezeproof protection to -10°C, the same high level of weather resistance as the OM SYSTEM OM-1 flagship model.Thanks to this design, users can focus on photo opportunities even in punishing conditions without worrying about ruining their equipment due to sudden rain showers, snow, or water droplets. The camera is also equipped with the SSWF (Supersonic Wave Filter), which significantly reduces issues with dust and dirt on the image sensor when changing lenses, making this an excellent model for active shooting and peace of mind for those who need to change lenses outdoors. The compact BLS-50 battery is used in this model, and the bundled USB-AC adapter can be used to charge the battery in the camera.

Versatile computational photography

Computational photography features allow users to easily capture photos that generally require special equipment or image editing software. The OM SYSTEM OM-5 is packed with convenient, versatile computational photography features that provide further inspiration for creative shooting, such as High Res Shot and Live ND.

High-Res Shot

This model supports Handheld High-Res Shot, which merges multiple images to create approximately 50 Megapixel high-resolution images. With this feature, users can enjoy hand-held shooting from nearly any angle while capturing high-resolution images. Merging multiple images not only improves resolution, but also minimizes noise. The popular Tripod High-Res Shot is also included on this model.

Live ND

Achieve slow shutter speed effects like those using ND filter up to ND16 (4 shutter speed steps). This feature delivers slow shutter speed effects even on ultra-wide-angle lenses that cannot accommodate an ND filter, and the effects can be viewed before capturing the photo using the viewfinder or on the LCD monitor when LV Simulation is activated.

Pro Capture

Pro Capture begins recording once the shutter button is pressed halfway and records previous frames beginning with the moment when the shutter button is pressed fully, ensuring users never miss moments due to human reaction and camera operation time lag. With high-speed sequential shooting up to 30 fps (AF/AE locked), up to 14 previous frames can be captured.

Focus Stacking

Focus Stacking captures eight shots at different focal positions and automatically generates a single image so users can incorporate background defocusing effects without excessively stopping down the aperture for control over the depth of field that matches the subject. This feature is useful for macro shooting.

Live Composite

With this feature, users can easily capture beautiful, varied shots while watching the image build on the Live View screen, even in situations where exposure control is difficult, such as when shooting a city against a starry sky.

Keystone Compensation

Just as if shooting with a shift lens, users can view effects in the Live View screen, while using vertical/horizontal simultaneous trapezoidal compensation and perspective enhancement.

Other features include

  • Live Bulb
  • Interval Shooting/Time Lapse Movie
  • Focus Bracketing
  • HDR
  • Colour Creator
  • Art Filter
  • Fisheye Compensation

High-quality 4K hand-held video recording and vertical video

The powerful in-body 5-axis image stabilization on the OM SYSTEM OM-5 is also compatible with video recording. When combined with the dedicated video electronic stabilization, it enables stable, hand-held 4K recording with no time limits.

The camera utilizes On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor information for video focusing control to deliver smooth focusing that matches the characteristics of videos. OM-Log is supported for a greater level of freedom over editing thanks to colour grading, which allows users to capture highlights and shadows without overexposing or underexposing shots.

Vertical video is also supported on this model; videos recorded in vertical orientation on the camera are saved as vertical files, making them easy to post on social media without the need for special editing software.

Users can also connect the high-res LS-P5 linear PCM recorder to capture high-quality audio while recording videos and the Slate Tone feature is available for easy audio data synchronization while editing videos.
