In this sponsored video, OM Systems OM-5 and 12-45mm Pro Lens Kits, Outdoor Photography Guide’s professional David Johnston explains the benefits and features of the OM Systems OM-5 camera and its companion, the 12-45mm Pro Lens. The OM-5 camera is designed for people on the go, adventurers, backpackers, and street photographers who explore and observe life. This streamlined camera feels easy to hold and can disappear in your bag so you barely notice it. You can even put it in your coat pocket. You can carry the OM-5 camera on day hikes, in wet conditions, in the desert, and in the mountains. It has high ratings with its weather sealant, and the LCD screen is also weather sealed. The camera is still operable in temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit. It also has an incredible dust removal system.

The 12-45mm F4.0 Pro lens is the world’s smallest, lightest, medium range zoom lens with a fixed aperture value. It fits right in with the OM-5 camera, one of the world’s most portable camera systems. Like the OM-5 camera, the lens is weather sealed so you can work in adverse conditions. You can achieve high-resolution edge-to-edge sharpness at all focal lengths, and the high-speed focusing works with the blazing-fast autofocus system.

The LCD screen rotates, giving you flexibility in how you compose your images. The 5-axis stabilization system keeps the sensor still, meaning you can go hand-held in low light conditions. The sensor has 121 points of phase detection autofocus, which is fast and accurate. All the focus points are cross-type, which improves the ability of the camera to lock onto subjects no matter how they are oriented in the frame. There are six different focus targeting modes. Groups of points can be helpful when shooting moving animals and birds. The image quality is dazzling.

The OM System OM-5 camera is built for the adventurer. You can carry the camera on trail hikes, in the forest, on the beach, and along rough trails. Pro photographer David Johnston claims that the OM Systems OM-5 is the best camera option in a small package. It barely weighs a pound.
