How To Use The OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mark II Digital Camera Body
Discover New Micro Four Thirds Capabilities
While the OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mark II Digital Camera benefits from an advanced 20-megapixel stacked BSI Live MOS Sensor and a 3x faster TruePic X image processor, the scope of this Micro Four Thirds camera extends beyond the size of the sensor. The OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mark II also offers high-performance 5-axis sync image stabilisation with up to 8.5 steps of compensation in body. Combined with new noise processing technology that provides an expanded maximum sensitivity of ISO 102400 and an improved dynamic range, these features result in a far richer range of tonal expressions.
Expand The Realms of Expression
Thanks to advances in computational photography, the OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mark II incorporates shooting features for photographic expressions that traditionally require specialist equipment. These shooting modes include High-Res Shots, Live ND128 and GND8 filters, Live Composite, Focus Stacking and HDR shooting.
Explore enhanced imaging with 50M handheld high-resolution shots and 80M tripod high-resolution shot functions. These functions produce superior high-res images by combining multiple shots and reducing noise by a two-step decrease in ISO sensitivity. They support RAW recording at 14 bits for stunningly detailed photos. Additionally, the OM-1 Mark II offers features like Live Composite, which selectively brightens areas, and Focus Stacking, allowing precise control over subject focus and depth of field.
Apply Live Filters in an Instant
The OM-1 Mark II is the world's first camera to include a Live GND (Graduated Neutral Density) shooting function. This groundbreaking technology allows users to adjust filter steps (GND2, GND4, or GND8) and types (Soft, Medium, or Hard) while viewing the results in real time through the viewfinder or rear LCD. This innovative feature eliminates the need for physical ND filters, enabling you to customise the position and angle effortlessly. Perfect for landscape photography, the filters expand creative expression, even on lenses lacking threads. The OM-1 Mark II has also improved Live ND shooting capabilities from ND64 (OM-1 Mark 1) to ND128, catering to scenarios requiring large step numbers.
Make Autofocus Work For You
Utilising deep learning technology, the OM-1 Mark II’s AI Detection Autofocus has improved to recognise a wide range of subjects, including humans, race cars, motorcycles, aeroplanes, helicopters, trains, birds, dogs, and cats. The Subject Selection feature has improved beyond the established Face / Eye Priority Focus and now accurately identifies subjects, even in challenging positions or obscured views. The AI Detection AF, powered by the TruePic X image processor, offers real-time detection of subjects' movements and precise tracking within the frame. It can detect and track up to eight subjects, allowing users to select their preferred targets.
Get Adventurous With High-Quality Hardware
The OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mark II combines a magnesium alloy body with a reliable SSWF (Supersonic Wave Filter) dust reduction system that vibrates more than 30,000 times per second to remove dirt and dust from the image sensor instantly. The camera body also benefits from an IP53 rating that is splashproof and can withstand temperatures as low as -10C.
The viewfinder also includes an anti-fogging coating to maintain a clear field of view, even in rainy weather. The 5.76 million-dot viewfinder provides high resolution with a 0.83x magnification, minimal display delay of 0.005 seconds, and a fast 120 fps display. These features offer optical viewfinder-like clarity, especially in low-light conditions, allowing users to preview images before capturing them.
Experiment With Creative Video Functions
As a lightweight Micro Four Thirds camera with industry-leading image stabilisation, the OM-1 Mark II is ideal for shooting stable handheld video. Creative video functions include Cinematic 4K 60p for smooth, high-definition videos and high-speed movies, with Full HD videos at a maximum of 240p. The camera also supports 14-bit RAW in High-Res mode and Multi-Frame Rate for recording video clips over 30 minutes in length.
The OM-1 Mark II also features Pro Capture, enabling recording when the button is half pressed (1st release) and storing previous frames from the full press (2nd release). It supports high-speed sequential shooting at up to 120 fps during AF/AE lock and around 50 fps during AF/AE tracking. With expanded buffer memory, Pro Capture allows retrospective capture of about 99 frames. In sequential shooting, it captures 219 frames in JPEG or 213 frames in RAW at 120 fps, a substantial improvement over the OM-1's original 92 frames.

What is the difference between the OM-1 and the OM-1 Mark II?
The new and improved OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mark II has made some adjustments following the success of the Mark 1 camera body. Firstly, one of the most exciting features is the addition of the Live Graduated ND filter and the improvement from an ND64 filter to an ND128 filter. The AI AF feature now recognises humans and has improved its ability to detect birds, animals, and vehicles. AI Subject Detection also recognises these things without needing face/eye priority focus.
Most importantly, the tech itself has had an upgrade. The Mark II now features market-leading 5-Axis sync IS performance with 8.5 stops compensation in body, a level up from the Mark 1’s 7.0 stops. With expanded buffer memory, the Mark II can capture 219 frames in JPEG or 213 frames in RAW at 120 fps, more than double the original 92 frames. Additionally, it supports 14-bit RAW in High-Res Mode, an upgrade from the previous 12-bit. The camera also includes Vertical Video in movie shooting mode, ideal for social media platforms and similar applications.
How compact is the OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mark II Digital Camera Body?
The OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mark II Digital Camera Body is an incredibly compact system, packing industry-leading technology into a tiny body. The camera weighs just 511g and measures 134.8 × 91.6 × 72.7mm (W x H x D). These compact dimensions make the OM-1 Mark II an excellent option for professionals and enthusiasts needing a compact, high-spec camera that is easy to store and transport between shooting locations.
Does the OM-1 Mark II camera require a smartphone app?
The OM Image Share smartphone app (OI.Share) connects the camera to Wi-Fi, transfers images and shooting data, and performs remote operations. OI.Share can update the firmware on the camera body and backup/restore camera settings. Additionally, the OM-1 Mark II supports UVC/UAC connections to PCs for webcam use, catering to modern connectivity needs and an intuitive experience.
How durable is the shutter unit?
According to in-house testing conditions, the shutter unit comfortably handles 400,000 shutter actuations, demonstrating the robustness of the magnesium alloy construction and sturdy hardware.
What is the battery life of the OM-1 Mark II Digital Camera Body?
The OM-1 Mark II uses a BLX-1 Li-ion battery, which is chargeable via USB cable. The camera’s rear display shows the remaining power status (10 steps, %, or by minute) so you can keep up with shooting times. In standard mode, the OM-1 Mark II can shoot approx. 500 shots on a single charge; on Quick Sleep Mode, that number increases to approx. 1010 shots. Under standard JEITA testing, the battery life for movie recording is approx. 90 minutes. When operational functions are not in use, this increases to approx. 150 minutes.
