The OM System OM-1 is a new flagship Micro Four Thirds camera that can shoot 20 megapixel images at 50fps and record 4K/60p movies. DPReview published their studio test results for the new OM SYSTEM OM-1 mirrorless camera.
The OM System OM-1 offers two UHS-II SD card slots and is IP53 Rated, making it dust-, splash- and freeze-proof down to -10ºC (14ºF).
A performance that’s essentially the same as preceding models, with any improvement being in terms of JPEG processing may seem a little anticlimactic, after the widespread discussion of improvements measured in whole stops. But, just as we were impressed by how little DR the Sony a1 had to give up, in return for its impressive readout speed, here we’re seeing a sensor with quad-pixel X-type AF and twice the previous readout speed without any significant image quality cost. That’s an impressive result, given what the speed should allow the camera to do.
