Max Shutter speed
OM System OM-1 can shoot continuously at max speed of 10 fps
and has max shutter speed of 1/8000 sec
. OM-1 also has an electronic shutter which can shoot silently at max speed of 1/32000s
. One thing to keep in mind is that electronic shutter may cause rolling shutter / jello effects, and also banding issues under artificial light on your images.
Unfortunately OM-1 doesn't have a built-in flash but it has a flash shoe for mounting external flashes.
OM System OM-1 features both Contrast Detection and Phase Detection autofocus (AF) systems which ensures speed and accuracy of focusing in most situations. The AF system has 1053 focus points and 1053 of these sensors are of Cross-type. Cross-type sensors locks focus faster and more accurate compared to single type sensors. OM System OM-1 also features Face detection AF
where it intelligently detects the faces in the frame and locks the focus automatically. In addition to the face detect AF, OM-1 has a more sophisticated feature called Eye Tracking AF
which detects and locks focus to the selected eye of the person in the frame accurately and tracks as the subject moves. Eye tracking AF of OM System OM-1 is a perfect feature for shooting portraits and is especially useful when fast lenses are used and the depth of field is very narrow.
Macro shooters will love OM System OM-1's Focus Stacking feature. In this mode, OM-1 automatically composites multiple shots taken at different focal positions using focus bracketing to create a single image with maximum depth of field.
