100.00 150.00

A full review of this camera can be found here - https://www.casualphotophile.com/2016/04/25/olympus-om-1-camera-review/

This camera is fully functional, and all the important bits are clean and sound. These include the film compartment, battery compartment, focus screen, viewfinder, and mirror box. All knobs, dials, switches and lever actuate with mechanical precision. The shutter is perfect, and the speeds are accurate. The light meter is responsive and working correctly. 

The lens is in very nice cosmetic condition and superb mechanical condition. The glass elements are free of fungus, haze, scratches, and balsam separation. The aperture blades are snappy and free of oil. The focus ring spins with perfectly weighted fluidity and the aperture ring clicks with mechanical precision. The filter threads and lens mount are unmarred. 

This camera offers exceptional mechanical ability in an incredibly small package. Fully manual and fully mechanical, it also provides a light meter with a swing needle in the viewfinder. This shows the photographer when the settings are correct for a proper exposure. This makes the camera ideal for both seasoned pros and those looking to learn.

The included 50mm Zuiko lens is a perfect focal length for standard and general purpose photography, snapshots, action shooting, street photography, and portraits. The fast aperture of F/1.8 allows the shooter to create amazing bokeh when shot wide open, yielding excellent subject isolation, shallow depth of field, and those beautiful blurry balls of light we all love. Stop the lens down to smaller apertures and the optics sharpen up immediately, creating pinpoint precise images with super fine resolution. 

The OM1 is also capable of mounting all Olympus OM mount lenses, including the famous Zuiko range, as well as any 3rd party OM mount lens.

This is just a fantastic machine for someone who's serious about creating excellent photos, or for those just starting out on the journey to photographic bliss. 

The camera will be packaged securely and shipped immediately.
