Isotta Shipping Housing for the OM System OM-1
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, January 9, 2024 @ 11:00 AM (EST)

Isotta is now shipping its new housing for the OM System OM-1 mirrorless camera. The flagship Micro Four Thirds camera boasts a 20.4MP Stacked CMOS sensor powered by a TruePic X Dual Quad Core Processor and can capture 4K UHD/DCI video up to 60fps (with no crop) as well as shoot up to 10fps with its mechanical shutter and 50fps with AF/AE using the electronic shutter.

Made from anodized aluminum and finished in Isotta’s signature red, the housing features double O-ring seals on all buttons and removable parts, the company’s unique single-handed open/close, a large rear window with an optical viewfinder, and a built-in moisture sensor with LED indicator. Dual handles are included.

Strobes can be hooked up via fiber-optic cables connected to the ports on the housing, but the flash trigger needs to be bought separately. The housing can optionally be purchased with an N5 or S6 bulkhead. There are three M16 ports and one M24 port for accessories such as a vacuum valve or external monitor/recorder.

The housing is available now with a price tag of $2,290.
