Question :
Can I use the same battery or power battery holder as for the E-M1X and E-M1 Mark III?

Answer:
You cannot use the same battery and power battery holder as for the E-M1X and E-M1 Mark III with OM-1.

OM-1 is included with a new type rechargeable battery BLX-1 (2280mAh), having a larger battery capacity than the BLH-1 (1720mAh).
The BLH-1 that is included with E-M1X, E-M1 Mark III and E-M1 Mark II cannot be used with the OM-1 because its shape is different from the BLX-1.

The power battery holder HLD-10 is also a dedicated battery holder for OM-1 (compatible with BLX-1).

Video Codec H.265:
H.265 codec is a setting intended for editing on a computer, such as for video production. Although the file size can be compressed better than in H.264 codec, a TV or monitor that supports 10-bit input is required to play the video with correct color and brightness. Playback using the OM Workspace software is not possible. If you do not have an environment that allows playback or editing H.265 videos, set the recording codec to H.264.

Note:
  • - The video file format is MOV (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, H.265/HEVC).
  • - The table shows the values when set to the maximum frame rate. The actual recorded bit rate varies depending on the shooting scene or combination of frame rates.
  • - When the video taken with a SDXC card exceeds 3 hours, the video is automatically divided and the rest is saved as a separate file. (Depending on the shooting conditions, the file may be divided in less than 3 hours.)
  • - When the video taken with a SD/SDHC card exceeds 4 GB, the video is automatically divided and the rest is saved as a separate file. (Depending on the shooting conditions, the file may be divided in less than 4 GB.)



Question :
What is the approximate movie recording time with a fully charged battery?

Answer:
The approximate sequential movie recording time with a fully charged BLX-1 battery are:

  • Approx. 90 min according to JEITA
  • Approx. 2 hr 40 min when zooming or other operations are not used
Note:
  • - When the video taken with a SDXC card exceeds 3 hours, the video is automatically divided and the rest is saved as a separate file. (Depending on the shooting conditions, the file may be divided in less than 3 hours.)
  • - When the video taken with a SD/SDHC card exceeds 4 GB, the video is automatically divided and the rest is saved as a separate file. (Depending on the shooting conditions, the file may be divided in less than 4 GB.)

Question :
How do I charge the battery while in camera using the bundled USB-AC adapter?

Answer:
The battery in OM-1 can be charged while in camera by using the bundled F-7AC USB-AC adapter and the USB cable. The battery can also be charged when the camera power is on, while using it as a power source for taking images or playing the recorded images.

Charging time with the camera turned off is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. When the camera is turned on, the charging time is longer than when the camera is turned off.

The battery in the power battery holder HLD-10 can also be charged. Charging both rechargeable batteries in the camera and in the HLD-10 takes approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes.



How to charge the battery with F-7AC USB-AC adapter

The following procedure explains how to charge the battery in the camera.

• Insert the battery into the camera. Connect the camera to the AC outlet using the F-7AC USB-AC adapter and the USB cable.



• The CHARGE lamp lights during charging.

The CHARGE lamp goes out when the battery reaches full charge. Disconnect the USB cable from the camera.


Note:
  • The CHARGE lamp blinks if there is an error in charging. Try to disconnect and reconnect the USB cable for recovery.
  • For safety reasons, charging may take longer or the battery may not reach full charge when the battery is charged in a high-temperature environment.
  • Charging stops when the battery temperature is too high. It will resume after the battery temperature falls.
Tip:

You can also charge the battery using the separately sold BCX-1 charger.
How do I charge the battery using the BCX-1 charger?




Question :
How do I charge the battery using the BCX-1 charger?

Answer:
The separately sold BCX-1 charger is a dedicated charger for the BLX-1 Lithium-ion battery. Two batteries can be charged simultaneously.



Connect the bundled F-7AC USB-AC adapter and the CB-USB13 USB cable to the charger.
A mobile battery conforming to the USB-PD standard with an output of 9V 3A can also be used as a power source.
Charging time is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. Charging time does not change even when you charge two batteries simultaneously.



Status of the charge indicator lamp:
The progress of charging can be checked from the status of the three charge indicator lamp on BCX-1.
Charge indicator lamp Battery charge
Lamp 1: Blinking Charging in progress Less than 50%
Lamp 1: Light on,
Lamp 2: Blinking
50% or more
Less than 80%
Lamp 1 and 2: Light on,
Lamp 3: Blinking
80% or more
Less than 100%
All lamps: Light out Charging complete 100%
All lamps: Blinking Charging error

Note:

F-7AC USB-AC adapter, CB-USB13 USB cable and BLX-1 battery are not included in BCX-1.




Question :
I inserted the rechargeable battery into the camera immediately after purchase, but the OM-1 does not turn on. Why?

Answer:
The bundled BLX-1 Lithium-ion battery is not fully charged at the time of purchase. Charge the battery before use.

* For compliance with transportation regulations and for safe transportation, the rechargeable batteries are shipped with a lower charge level. After purchase, the batteries must be charged before first use.
