    It will only take the same picture as long as it works. It gets no respect for good reason.

    OM10 and OM1 both take pictures but regarding durability, they don't play in the same league. If you want a camera to keep, favor the OM1, less prone to failure.

    The OM-10 can be used manually without an adapter. That is if you want 1/60th or Bulb.

    Remember to set the switch to manual if you use a non-Olympus flash. This will give you the 1/60th sync speed required for flash.

    I have had a dozen OM10s. I gave away 4 and still have 3 and they all worked perfectly. I bought some for parts only and even they started working once new batteries were installed.

    Just don't rip the film advance like a mad man and they will be fine.

    If you don't have the manual adapter, setting it to manual adapter position gives you a shutter speed of 1/45th (assuming shutter is working properly). John

    I think it just did that to my film.

    And yes, I do have the thingy attachment. Figured it out, but now, it appears, it has torn my film. First time this happens.

    How are you ripping your film (and you couldn't possibly be trying to rewind it without first turning the "R" button down on the front first)? John

    Thats definitely what has happened to me two times, but another time it was totally inexplainable.

    I wasn't trying to rewind the film. I wasn't done shooting yet. I took a picture, was trying to advance the film and it started ripping. This hadn't happened before.
