You love watching birds. You love photography. And you’ll love this handy page. Whether you’re getting started or you’ve been shooting in the field for years, you’ll learn something new.
Keep up with fast-flying birdsThe continuous shooting speed of the OM-D E-M1 Series blows away most DSLR cameras. Capture an astounding 60 frames per second with S-AF and 18 frames per second with C-AF using the silent electronic shutter. It's easy to keep up with fast-moving subjects.
Never miss a shotOur time machine-like Pro Capture Mode ensures you nail the best shot. Press the camera's shutter button halfway to start buffering a running series of images. Once you see the precise moment you want to capture, fully press the shutter to capture that image plus the previous 35 frames all at once.
Precise autofocusingPhotographing birds in flight requires a responsive and fast autofocus system. The OM-D E-M1 Series features dual Phase Detection + Contrast Detection AF points that blanket the image sensor. Each AF point is cross-type for superior speed and accuracy.
Compact lightweight sizeLet the OM-D 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 bird photos.
