Computational photography offers further inspiration for creative shooting.

Since the early stages of its existence, the OM SYSTEM has provided compositing technology on the camera that traditionally required a computer, making advanced digital expressions easy. It uses the latest digital technologies to drive the power of expression further.

High Res Shot lets you take approximately 50 MP high-resolution photos

The OM-5 is equipped with Handheld High Res Shot. This feature enables hand-held shooting from nearly any angle while capturing high-resolution images.

OM-5 M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-45mm F4.0 PRO, Handheld High Res Shot
  • Handheld High Res Shot: The minuscule positional shift that occurs during shooting is used to generate a single approximately 50 MP high-resolution shot from 12 recorded shots.
  • Tripod High Res Shot: The camera moves the sensor in 0.5 pixel increments while capturing eight shots, which are then used to generate a single high-resolution shot.

High Res Shot uses

This model is equipped with Tripod High Res Shot, which supports flash photography and allows you to generate approximately 50 MP high-resolution photos. Two types of High Res Shot can be used depending on the shooting environment and subjects.

    Flash photography is possible at a sync speed longer than 1/50 sec.

Live ND for slow shutter speed effects

By quasi-lengthening of the exposure time, all lenses are capable of slow shutter speed effects as if an ND filter is attached. These effects can be selected from 1 to 4 levels and can be checked in the viewfinder. Not only does this feature eliminate the need to switch filters for shooting scenes and lenses, but it is great for lenses where filter attachment is difficult, such as the M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO and M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO.

Live ND technology

Composite multiple exposed images to create slow shutter speed effects.

  • Normal shooting: Without using the ND filter, long exposures result in overexposed shots with overblown highlights.
  • With ND filter: The exposure amount is reduced by using an ND filter to prevent overblown highlights in long exposures.
  • Live ND: Records each shot so that the highlights are not overblown, compositing four shots to artificially extend the exposure time.

Live Composite/Live Bulb

Live Composite and Live Bulb are included for making difficult long exposures easier. Live Composite lets you check the progress of the light trails for creating beautiful Lighten Composite photos. Live Bulb provides support for long bulb shooting where you can check the exposure and finished image while shooting.

  • Live Composite: This method composites multiple shots captured at the same shutter speed to record light trails (Lighten Composite). Because only the sections with changes in brightness are composited, you can keep the overall image from becoming too bright as is common in long bulb exposures. This feature makes it possible to capture city scenes against a starlit sky without overexposing or underexposing buildings or star trails. Light trails can be checked in Live View while shooting.
  • Live Bulb: In traditional bulb photography, it is impossible to check the exposure status until the shutter closes. However, with Live Bulb, the continuously updating exposure status is displayed at designated intervals so you can shoot while checking the image.
  • With Live View, you can shoot while checking the status of the exposure.
  • Bulb mode makes shooting long exposures easy.

Interval Shooting/Time Lapse Movie

Interval Shooting supports up to 9,999 shots. Long shooting intervals with a large number of frames is supported, and when shooting is finished, a Time Lapse Movie is automatically generated on the camera.

This is convenient for observing how a subject changes from moment to moment and for creating 4K Time Lapse Movie videos. After completing Interval Shooting, a Time Lapse Movie can be created on the camera. Exposure equalization processing can also be applied to cope with sudden changes in exposure between frames.

Focus Stacking

Focus Stacking captures eight shots at different focal positions and automatically generates a single image. This allows you to incorporate background defocusing effects without excessively stopping down the aperture for a large depth of field. You can adjust the focal steps to best match the size of the subject (Approximately seven percent of the angle of view from the top, bottom, and sides is lost on focused stacked images).

Focus Bracketing

The focal location is shifted slightly with each shutter activation for up to 999 shots. You can select from 10 levels of focus shift. Recorded photos can be composited in OM Workspace. This feature makes it possible to easily capture with a very deep depth of field that is difficult to obtain simply by stopping down the aperture when shooting. Also, using Focus Stacking on the camera makes it possible to generate images that are in focus across a wide area.

Pro Capture

This function captures split-second photo opportunities that time lag usually makes it impossible. The camera begins recording 20M images once the shutter button is pressed halfway, and retains up to 14 frames of the most recent images when the shutter button is pressed fully.

Color Creator

Freely adjust the hue and color saturation to create photos that look exactly the way you want them to.

  • Normal shooting
  • Color Creator Color +3, Vivid +3

Art Filter

These effects allow you to shoot images with a unique artistic finish while checking the effect on the monitor.

  • Pop Art II Pin Hole Effect
  • Dramatic Tone II

Fish Eye Correction

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO can be used as a wide lens without the fisheye effect. Select from 11mm[*], 14mm[*], and 18mm[*] angle of view options and check the effects on the monitor while shooting. Large-diameter ultra wide-angle lenses tend to be large, however, this single lens has you covered.

Keystone Compensation

Just as if shooting with a shift lens, you can view effects in the Live View screen while using vertical/horizontal simultaneous trapezoidal compensation and perspective enhancement. For example, mountain summits tend to look narrow and pointy when shot from a low position, but keystone compensation makes it possible to capture majestic shots that are closer to what the actual scenery looks like.

Multi. Exposure

Multi. Exposure lets you enjoy freedom of expression by overlapping images. You can also check the overlapped images in Live View while shooting.

  • Achieve a soft effect by overlapping focused and defocused images.
  • Enjoy a dreamlike atmosphere by overlapping images with different subjects.
