Old School Cameras are the best school

  • Excerpt: This is one of those classic cameras, and probably more of an antique in this day and age with all the digital cameras. However it was the first camera I received and a cast off from my Dad, and the start of a passion in photography for myself.
  • Pros: Great Quality
  • Cons: Little dated

OM10, the only film camera i'll use.

  • Excerpt: I was bought this camera for my A levels, and initially i didn't like it. It seemed blocky and heavy, but that was compared to a DSLR. It didn't take me long to get to grips with the camera, and the quality of my initial shots I felt was great, and I carried on using the camera.
  • Pros: Variety of lenses, quality of photos
  • Cons: Need of an adaptor to make manual .

Olympus OM-10 Quality and performance way beyond it's price tag

DJPOKI, Ciao
14 July 2010
  • Excerpt: A light and easy to use camera way more capable than the price tag suggests. The camera as standard is an Aperture Priority automatic exposure, 35mm Single lens reflex. In Aperture Priority mode the user selects the aperture and the camera selects the shutter speed.
  • Pros: Olympus quality assured, truly comprehensive and versatile system
  • Cons: Rewind button is fiddly .   Manual adaptor is essential not optional for full control

Olympus OM-10 35mm SLR camera

Eccentric..., Ciao
2 October 2008
  • Excerpt: A very good camera indeed, but one for the beginner. As all OM cameras are so cheap now on eBay, I'd recommend looking at an OM-20 or 30, which has no need for a manual adaptor to change shutter speeds.
  • Pros: Immensely robust, high - quality camera
  • Cons: The ISO dial lets down the whole equation by being stupidly fiddly to use

  • Excerpt: Around 7 years ago I wanted to replace my ageing point-and-shoot compact camera with something that would offer me more potential for taking better photos. After talking to a friend who was a keen amateur photographer, and a local camera shop owner I decided to purchase a secondhand OM-10.
  • Pros: Very Versatile, Build and Image Quality
  • Cons: Ummmm  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .

Sexy-Kay, Ciao
14 July 2003
  • Excerpt: On the wall, just inside my front door, there is a large framed photograph taken in Yosemite Park, California. I think it's a bit special and I'm always delighted to say, "That's one of mine", when anyone remarks about how nice the picture looks.
  • Pros: It's easy to take good photos straight away and is very reliable
  • Cons: I find it tricky to put the film in the camera

Excellent manual camera

ghpink, Ciao
9 August 2000

  • Pros: Lightweight, solid and reliable
  • Cons: out of production  -  parts hard to find
