The OM SYSTEM E-M1 MarkIII ASTRO is a dedicated camera for astrophotography that optimizes the IR cut filter located in front of the image sensor of the mirrorless single-lens camera E-M1 MarkIII for astrophotography, allowing you to capture colorful red nebulae that are popular among astrophotography enthusiasts.
In addition, the filters included with this product, OM SYSTEM’s computational photography, and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses enable a wide range of expression from starry sky photography to full-scale astrophotography such as constellations and nebulae.


Captures Hα radiation and captures beautiful red diffuse nebulae that cannot be seen with the naked eye in vivid, high-resolution images.

Features a Unique Photo Stacking Process:
High Res Shot is a computational photography function unique to the OM SYSTEM that realizes high-resolution photography using ultra-high-density pixel information obtained by shooting multiple images. Normally, “Handheld High Res Shot” is used when shooting handheld, but by using it with the camera fixed to a tripod or equatorial mount, the “stacking process” often used in astrophotography can be performed in one shot within the body.
This not only results in high definition, but also reduces noise.

Covers a Wide Range of Scenes:

By combining a wide variety of M.ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses, from wide-angle to telephoto, which can be selected according to the subject, you can capture beautiful images of various celestial objects, from magnificent starry skies to specific constellations and distant nebulae. In addition, by using a commercially available Micro Four Thirds compatible adapter, you can attach it to an astronomical telescope and take pictures.


The “Handheld High Res Shot” function on the E-M1 Mark III uses the slight misalignment that occurs during shooting to generate a high-resolution photo of approximately 50 megapixels from 16 shots. Since the images are aligned one by one when compositing, the Handheld High Res Shot function is performed with the camera fixed to a tripod to generate a composite image in which the movement of the stars due to their diurnal motion has been corrected. In addition, when using an equatorial mount, the composite image is generated in which the misalignment of the stars caused by tracking errors has been corrected.

Next Level Photography in this field.
