Compact and Lightweight Camera

The OM-5 is a 20.4MP camera body that is designed and crafted to perfection. It is made of a lightweight and strong magnesium alloy, making it perfect for travelling or everyday use. Its small size allows it to fit into any travel bag, and its sleek design makes it almost invisible when carried.

Micro Four Thirds Compatible

Whether you have an OM camera from OM SYSTEM or an Olympus OM-D, PEN or any other compatible camera, you'll benefit from all that the Micro Four Thirds (MFT) standard has to offer: a camera system boasting a compact size, lightweight, more shooting freedom, high image quality and ease of use, to name just a few. So if you're in the market for a new camera body, check out the OM-5. You won't be disappointed.

Designed For The Outdoors

OM-5 Body is the latest addition to the OM series of high-performance cameras from Olympus. As its name suggests, the OM-5 is designed for adventures, with a weather-resistant and dustproof body that can withstand extremes of heat and cold. It's also splashproof and rated IP53 for protection against rain and snow.

So whether you're shooting in the desert or high in the mountains, you can be sure your camera will keep working. And if you get caught in a sudden downpour, you don't need to worry about your equipment. The OM-5 is tough enough to handle anything Mother Nature can throw at it. So go ahead and enjoy your adventure, knowing that your camera is up to the challenge.

Video That Will Impress

Think of the OM-5 as a high-quality video camera as it can capture stunning views in a 4K 30p video codec, making it manageable for the on-the-go edit suite. To ensure you capture the shot, the camera is powered by the BLS-50 Battery, which provides enough juice to manage the impressive stabiliser (5-axis stabilisation system), and maintain a high frame rate. More importantly, the 4K codec is easy on the memory card but does not compromise on quality and detail.

Movies are a great way to capture memories and share stories with others. But sometimes, even the best photos can't do a story justice. That's where the OM-5 comes in. With its ability to stabilise the shakiest of situations with up to 6.5 steps of compensation (or 7.5 with compatible Sync-IS lenses), the OM-5 is perfect for turning your favourite stories into spectacular movies that are worthy of the journey you made. So if you're looking for a camera that can help you capture your most precious memories, the OM-5 is the perfect choice.

But Wait, There's More

For Olympus fans, OM System has delivered. It seems this compact, lightweight camera has it all. High-resolution stills, powerful video, impressive stabilisation, and weather sealing - what more could you need? Well, it turns out the new OM-5 has more under the hood waiting to be explored. Take, for instance, the ability to do long exposures in-camera without needing a filter. That's right; you can now transform a cityscape or landscape scene to a longer exposure (up to four steps of effect) with the ND16. So if you want to remove people from that iconic scene, set up your camera on a tripod and use this setting - the people will vanish.
