OM System OM-5 Digital Camera Body Silver in More Detail

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.

Computational photography

Computational photography features helps to more easily capture photos that typically require specialist equipment or advanced image editing software. The OM SYSTEM OM-5 is packed with convenient, versatile computational photography features that provide inspiration for creative shooting, including High Res Shot and Live ND.

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.

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 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.

Live ND

Achieve slow shutter speed effects up to ND16 (4 stops), similar to using an ND filter. This feature delivers long exposure effects even on ultra-wide-angle lenses, which cannot usually accommodate an ND filter without special mounting brackets. The effects can be viewed before capturing the image, using the viewfinder or on the LCD when LV Simulation is activated.

Pro Capture

Never miss a moment with Pro Capture, which begins recording once the shutter button is pressed halfway and records previous frames from the moment the shutter button is pressed fully. Pro Capture delivers high-speed sequential shooting up to 30 fps (AF/AE locked), up to 14 previous frames can be captured.

Live Composite

With the Live Composite feature, users can easily capture beautiful shots while watching the image build on the Live View screen. This works even in situations where exposure is difficult to achieve, such as when shooting a city against a starry sky at night.

Focus Stacking

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

Keystone Compensation

Get straight verticals similar to shooting with a shift lens while viewing the effects in the Live View screen, while using vertical/horizontal simultaneous trapezoidal compensation and perspective enhancement. This is a great features for capturing buildings or other subjects while tilting the camera, which normally causes ‘lean’ in vertical lines.

Other useful content features include:

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

Enjoy handheld high-quality 4K video and vertical video recording

Powerful 5-axis image stabilisation is compatible with video recording in the OM-5. When combined with dedicated video electronic stabilisation, it enables you to capture stable, hand-held 4K movies with no recording time limit. The camera utilises On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor for video focusing control, which delivers smooth focusing. OM-Log is LSO supported for a greater level of freedom when colour grading, to capture highlights and shadows without overexposing or underexposing shots.

Vertical video is recorded in vertical orientation on the camera and saved as vertical files, making it far easier to post on social media without special editing software. Users can also connect the high-res LS-P5 linear PCM recorder to capture high-quality audio and the Slate Tone feature is available for easy audio data synchronisation while editing your movies.

Other features

  • Supports UVC (USB Video Class)/UAC (USB Audio Class) for use as a high-quality web camera simply by connecting it to a computer via USB.
  • Equipped with AF Target mode, which offers freedom over AF areas depending on subject movement and position, with selection of any odd number of points from 11 vertical and 11 horizontal points. Select from th
  • Equipped with exposure equalisation processing for copin

Extensive range of M.Zuiko MFT Lenses

Whichever style of photography, video and hybrid shooting you enjoy there are endless possibilities from wide aperture zooms such as the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO II Lens to all-in-one lenses including the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F/3.5-6.3.

Our Verdict

The OM-5 camera silver is OM System's second hybrid micro four thirds camera body, following the hugely successful flagship OM-1 camera. Many of the features in the OM-5 have been upgraded and improved from the previous generation. This provides a highly capable lightweight MFT camera, with versatile features for content creators who love action packed adventures in the great outdoors.

Notable features help you to capture better content more easily, with class-leading body stabilisation which works independently for 6.5-stops and up to 7.5-stops when combined with M.Zuiko Digital lenses equipped with image stabilisation. This is a significant upgrade, delivering 15% improved stabilisation over the previous generation, for sharper images and videos, even during low light conditions and when walking around.

The 4K sensor records smooth, no limit 4K video, high speed 120fps Full HD for slow motion effects and fast image bursts using ProCapture, at up to 30fps. OM System has been busy developing advanced computational photography, and the sensor is compatible with phase-detection AF. This results in significantly improved Face and Eye detection AF, with better subject recognition and tracking.

Other storytelling features include a new 50 megapixel handheld high-res mode (80MP with a tripod), Starry Sky AF, Vertical video for social channels and the ability to use the camera as a webcam when connected to a computer. All of these are designed to help creators capture and share a diverse range of content styles with a compact hybrid camera to tell your story from any adventure.
