On the Hunt for Joy: Put Your Collections on Display

45 years using Olympus cameras. A selection of the Olympus cameras I have owned and used over the years. Having got interested in photography in the mid 1970s I purchased my first Olympus camera in 1976. Taken with a Sony mirrorless camera after I became unhappy with the direction Olympus were taking with their camera design.
