You may have been a photographer who bought one of the original OM System OM-1 cameras. Now OM Digital Solutions has come out with a new camera that still has the feel and familiarity, and the streamlined looks of its original model. In this video lesson Outdoor Photography Guide’s professional David Johnston explains the features of the OM System OM-1 camera.

The camera has a micro four-thirds body, but it feels and looks like how the company used to produce camera bodies. The features are exemplary. It is small, lightweight, and it’s fast. The image quality is dazzling. This new camera is built for the adventurer. You can carry the camera on long day hikes, in wet conditions, in the desert, while snowboarding, and along rough trails. And the OM System OM-1 has high ratings with its weather sealant. Even the LCD screen is weather sealed. David likes to kayak and paddle board, and he takes this camera along.

The OM System OM-1 camera comes with a kit lens, but it is a professional lens, a powerhouse 12-40mm f2.8. At 12mm, you can capture a wide foreground or zoom closer to 40mm for versatility, and you can shoot at night. David found that the hand grip on this camera is the best he has ever used, and he has big hands. Another feature is the setting that allows you to shoot long exposures without a tripod. David has gotten fantastic results with multi-second exposures.

In this video lesson Outdoor Photography Guide’s David Johnston shows you all the newest features on the OM System OM-1 camera, of which there are many. Take this great camera on your next family adventure or day hike, and shoot away. You will love the results.
