    Olympus OM 10

    Okay, forgive me, but how do you use (manually) an OM 10? I simply cannot figure out how to use this camera in the manual setting. Can someone please help? Thanks.

    I owned one for a couple of weeks then gave it away.

    I believe that to use it manually, a manual adaptor is needed which plugs into the socket at the front of the top plate to the right of the prism (when viewed from the front).

    EDIT: Like this: http://www.star.ucl.ac.uk/~rwesson/e..._adapter_1.htm

    I presume you have the manual speed control adapter for the camera?! If so, you need to first set the 'Mode/ASA' dial (near shutter release) in the 'Manual Adapter' position, then you dial in shutter speeds on the Manual Adapter (attaches near the left side of the body front)

    Exactly what the others said. If you don't have the Manual Adapter, you cant do it. The OM-20 was made to compensate for this. It's my most used 35 mil.

    Unless you have the manual shutter speed addition thingie, you will need to stay in auto (aperture priority) mode and use the iso setting knob for under/over exposure and get "manual" control.

    You can't use it manually without an adaptor.

    To use manually, throw OM-10 in trash and shoot an OM-1.

    An OM-10 in good condition will take the same picture an OM-1 will. The OM-10 is the Rodney Dangerfield of Olympus cameras. It gets no respect.

    I purchased two of them new when they first entered the market. Neither lasted a year.

    I have an om-10 with circuit shortcut in it or something, it chews batteries, apart from that it seems to work ok.
