The Olympus OM-1 is amazing! These are my 5 reasons why

Sharing the same as the original Olympus OM-1 camera that was released in 1972, the new OM-1 is perhaps just as revolutionary. The OM System OM-1 has been highly anticipated, and for good reason – it replaces the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III and Olympus OM-D E-M1X as the flagship model and packs in a lot of tech in its compact body, including 120fps burst shooting, IP53 weather sealing and 8 stops of image stabilization.

We’ve already shared our thoughts in our full Olympus OM-1 review, so who better to ask for their first impressions than a real-life Olympus ambassador who uses the camera everyday to shoot fascinating close-up captures of insects and flowers. Let’s see what professional photographer Geraint Radford makes of Olympus’ flagship.
