I've just joined. I bought my OM1n black body in 1978 or 1979. It has been been a great camera and has had plenty of rest the last 16 years or so. I just got it back from Gary's for a CLA & have recently put my 1st roll through it since. Film is out for development now & I'm looking forward to the results. My 13 year old daughter has taken an interest in photography & I figured the OM1 would serve her well to learn on, as it did me. I'm looking forward to some quality time with her & the OM
Welcome Mike, I still have my OM-1 non MD model. Superb, as is the entire system. I hope you and your daughter enjoy its revival.
New here, proud owner of two OM-2n:s - the black one for TriX/Tmax 400, the silver one for everything else.
Welcome marko.oja, I use OM-2's and a 2n, regularly. They're great cameras.
Just joined - glad there's somewhere to cater to my OM addiction.... It all started with an OM10 in 1980, still got it, though it's very battered now. Over the years my collection has grown to include an OM1n, OM2n, 2 OM4ti's (one mint, one for rough work!), 18/3.5, 24/2, 35/2, 50/3.5 macro, 100/2.8, 180/2.8 and 350/2.8. Not to mention flashes, winders, filters, both teleconverters..... I love the fast teles, and have taken them all over the world and the fast wides are just awesome. As I use my cameras on my travels, the OM system is the only choice, how did they make these marvels half the size of the competition?
Hi Bill, bought my first OM in 1983 ish - OM2n, best move ever. Move on to 2013 now using a brace of OM4s and Zuiko prime glass from 24mm through to 300mm and loving every minute of it!
Hi Folks, Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm an Australian professional photographer and I've just joined APUG and I've been an Olympus tragic for my whole photography career! I'll be selling a few of my less-used Olympus items on ebay over the next few weeks (making way for some leicas, but I'll be keeping my OM4Ti, OM1n and a few primes!), not sure if this is an appropriate place to mention my auctions?
I'm sure it isn't but what the h***
I just thought I introduce myself. I just picked up two OM-2 one black and the other one silver . So far I only used one roll of color film on the black one, and it looks like a winner pictures came out great.
I'm really excited to start shooting film specially in Street photography. A few weeks ago I ended up taking a workshop with Eric Kim pretty well-known street photographer. He also shoots film but he uses a Leica camera. Anyways I hope to learn more from this forum about the Olympus OM series it seems like a special camera.
My other cameras that I use are the Fuji X 100(not the new S version)
and Olympus E3.
Hi Art, welcome to the group. You won't go far wrong with a brace of OM2s there
