Comparison: OM System OM-1 vs Canon EOS R3 Indoor Sports Shootout

Here is a detailed Comparison of the OM System OM-1 vs Canon EOS R3 !

The OM System OM-1 brings a stacked sensor, interchangeable lens
camera to an affordable price for the first time. How does it hold up
next to the Canon EOS R3, a premium flagship sports camera?

DPReview`s Chris Niccolls and The Camera Store TV’s Evelyn Drake
went to shoot some indoor hockey and find out.

Here are the highlights from the comparison video:

DPReview TV: OM System OM-1 vs. Canon EOS R3 Indoor Sports Shootout

  • Both cameras need to be in electronic shutter mode to take
    advantage of the fastest continuous shooting speeds.
  • No white balance or exposure instability was observed during
    continuous shooting.
  • The OM-1 is capable of 50 frames per second, and the  EOS
    R3 is capable of continuous AF / AE tracking at 30 frames per
  • The OM-1 also supports continuous shooting for 120 frames if
    tracking AF is not required.
  • If you always shoot at the highest frame rate, it will take time to
    clear the buffer. At the shooting site, the continuous shooting
    speed was reduced so that continuous shooting was possible.
  • When I reduced the continuous shooting speed of the OM-1 to 15
    frames per second, I was able to continue shooting endlessly.
  • The OM-1 can use a pro-capture mode that Sony and Canon do not
    have. You can take the shot you want without having to shoot a
    number, and the buffer will not run out.
  • The EOS R3 supports a wide range of C-AF customization in addition
    to excellent followability.
  • When chasing a single player with the OM-1, the AF area does not
    stick to the face, but the depth of field is deep, so you can
    continue to supplement. However, the tracking AF was sometimes
    pulled by the person on the stand or the foreground.
  • The success rate at the time of zone focus was good.
  • Compared to the full-size F2.8, the Micro Four Thirds F2.8 cannot
    separate the subject from the background. On the other hand, it is
    possible to focus on the range that only explains the story in
    detail. (However, full size can be handled by narrowing down, and
    full size is advantageous for the degree of freedom)
  • When shooting through glass, Micro Four Thirds, which has a deep
    depth of field, was at a disadvantage (the effect of glass is more
    likely to be reflected).
  • There is a difference in the image quality of high ISO sensitivity,
    and if you want to emphasize the image quality more, you need to
    prepare the difference and go to full size. However, Micro Four
    Thirds is sufficient for use as a small image on the web.
  • The price difference is as follows.
    • OM-1 + 40-150mm F2.8 PRO: $3799
    • EOS R3 + 70-200mm F2.8 L: $8798
    • The difference is $ 5,000.
  • One of the advantages is that it is 500g lighter than the Canon
