THE OM SYSTEM GUIDE TO
Earth has boundless natural beauty. You just need to know where to look and how to capture it. Whether you’re getting started or you’ve been shooting for years, you’ll learn something new.
Plan your landscape photos. Perhaps you are going to visit a destination for the first and last time. Find out about the location, be inspired by photographs of others, visit the place before if you can. Specially if you are going to shoot a night landscape, you should visit it before daylight. Check the weather forecasts to avoid surprises or at least to be prepared. A cloudy sky can ruin a Milky Way, but it may offer a beautiful thunderstorm.
Natural light changes frequently and rapidly. Analyze the light, train your eye by taking pictures without a camera, observe the scene well to make good decisions. A ray of light on a specific element of the scene can be key in a composition.
Get the most out of computational photography
Expand your creativity without limits thanks to the many computational functions that OM SYSTEM cameras offer you. Get more details with the HighRes mode, capture that silky water stream with LiveND, add highlights with Live Composite mode or extend depth of field with Focus Stacking. The possibilities are unlimited.
Decide on the gear that will accompany you
Know your equipment in depth, both your camera and your lenses. The ideal light can appear at any moment and you must be prepared to react because the moment is fleeting. A cloud, a gust of wind, the changing position of the sun, are sometimes unpredictable variables that can require you to change parameters in the camera very quickly.
Our mirrorless OM camera system is up to half the size and weight of other 35mm format flagship camera systems. This gives landscape photographers more flexibility, more energy, and more shooting time in the field to get the perfect shot.
Lousy weather often takes you by surprise. The OM Series and our PRO lenses have you covered. They’re splashproof, dustproof and freezeproof (down to 14 ̊F / -10 ̊C), so there’s never a need to carry protective gear.
Let the OM Series set you free. Our compact mirrorless cameras and small lightweight lenses boast the performance of pro DSLR systems. You'll have greater freedom of movement to capture better photos and the near silent operation to avoid disturbing the natural tranquility around you.
