WE ARE THE DARK HORSE
We don’t run in the race, never have, and never intend to. For over 80 years, we have blazed our own path, pushed the limits of technology, and broken barriers of common convention to put tools in the hands of those who have a unique vision, regardless of age, race, or gender. To help people break free.
We work for the photographer, and we know there’s more than one way to take a photo, capture a moment, or build a camera.
Our first compact system, the OM-1, sparked a revolution that cut in half the total size and weight that photographers carried on their shoulders; while at the same time creating something smarter, tougher, and more discreet than the competition.
Since then, we have focused on creating cameras that do not yet exist, so photographers can do things previously impossible. Cameras that are compact but packed with impact so that they can be with you for those once-in-a-lifetime moments.
