This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Cameras, photographers or equipment.
It’s also a look back at the 31 years I used the Olympus OM system given the uncertain future of Olympus cameras at the moment.
My first Olympus camera, an OM1 purchased in 1976. When I added an OM2n in 1980 this OM1 became my black and white film camera. Utterly reliable unlike some later OM system cameras.
An Olympus OM4T I purchased used in the late 1990s. A big mistake, it soon developed the shutter problem I was so familiar with having owned an early OM4. If the OM4 wasn’t in the repair shop for new circuit boards it was in there for a new shutter. I gave up after multiple replacements of both circuit boards and shutters.
