OM Digital Options has introduced the OM System OM-5, a rugged and travel-focused digital camera that’s the first within the firm’s lineup that doesn’t bear the Olympus identify.
The corporate positions the OM-5 as a full-featured, 20.4-megapixel Micro 4 Thirds digital camera that may work greatest for a busy, touring photographer who wants a digital camera that’s succesful but small and rugged. The digital camera options dustproof and splashproof safety (particularly it qualifies for an IP53 score) and might survive in temperatures as little as 14 levels Fahrenheit. Of be aware, PetaPixel has beforehand proven how OM Digital torture exams its cameras, which ends up in the excessive degree of resistance present in cameras just like the OM-5. The digital camera additionally has what OM Digital calls an SSWF (Supersonic Wave Filter), which it claims considerably reduces points with mud and filth on the picture sensor when altering lenses.
As is anticipated, the OM-5 is provided with what OM Digital characterizes as a “highly effective” in-body five-axis picture stabilization. When mixed with a appropriate lens that’s outfitted with optical picture stabilization, the digital camera can work in tandem with it to supply as much as 7.5EV steps of stabilization.
The OM-5 has a 121-point all cross-type On-chip Part Detection AF sensor and OM Digital says that the processing engine is ready to ship pure gradations in photos with minimal noise and excessive picture high quality even at excessive ISOs.
The digital camera has each a digital and bodily shutter with whcih it may possibly shoot between 1/8000 second and 60 seconds. The OM-5 is powered by the BLS-50 battery; the included USB adapter can be utilized to cost the battery within the digital camera.
Computational Pictures Options
The OM-5 comes full of computational pictures options like a 50-megapixel handheld high-resolution shot mode, a Stay Impartial Density (ND) mode, inner focus stacking, “Professional Seize,” focus stacking, Starry Sky autofocus, and extra.
Handheld Excessive-Res Shot merges a number of photos to create roughly 50 Megapixel high-resolution photos, which is a next-generational replace to the unique tripod-only high-res shot mode (which can also be out there on this digital camera).
Stay ND permits the digital camera to realize gradual shutter pace results in brilliant gentle which is normally solely potential with using an ND filter. The results, which go as excessive as ND16, may be seen earlier than capturing the photograph utilizing the viewfinder or on the LCD monitor when LV Simulation is activated.
Professional Seize begins recording as soon as the shutter button is pressed midway and information earlier frames starting with the second when the shutter button is pressed totally. When capturing on the most 30 frames per second (AF/AE locked), as much as 14 earlier frames may be captured.
The OM-5’s inner Focus Stacking characteristic captures eight pictures at completely different focal positions and mechanically generates a single picture from them, a method that’s typically employed in macro capturing.
Different computational pictures options embody Stay Composite, Stay Bulb, Interval Taking pictures/Time Lapse Film, Focus Bracketing, HDR, Colour Creator, Artwork Filter, and Fisheye Compensation.

Movies may be recorded in ALL-I at roughly 202 Mbps.
Vertical video can also be supported, and movies recorded in such a means are saved as vertical recordsdata, which OM Digital says makes them simple to put up on social media with out the necessity for particular modifying software program.
Pricing and Availability
