This old work horse never fails. A true classic. Discovered photography using the OM. It was small and compact before anyone knew what a compact was. Long live Olympus, well recommend the OM1n… Read Full Review

In my opinion its far, far beyond the equivalent Nik/Canon offerings. Lovely optics, tough as old boots. A proper traveller's camera… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/11/2007 by garfield peardrop plickhead (1 review written)

The Olympus OM1n is my first SLR, except for one that auto focussed, which I didn't like and consequently sold on ebay. I have taken some very good pictures with and would strongly recommend it to someone, like me, who is just setting off and learning… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/05/2007 by petermcp1999 (1 review written)

I have owned the Olympus OM1n since 1982 when I purchased it while still in high school. Through the years I have photographed, family, friends, weddings etc. and almost all the pictures came out perfectly. Currently working with computers has prompted me to purchase a digital camera and while there are many benefits and ease to digital photography, I have returned to a true classic and good friend the Olympus OM 1n 35mm SLR… Read Full Review

“I love these Olympus OM cameras. ”

Written on: 20/01/2007 by JPESSIQUE (1 review written)

I love these Olympus OM cameras.
Some people told me, why don't you use modern digital camera ?
I have bought one of these, I never use it now I have rediscovered all the possibilities of the OM1n.
My digital cams (one Canon DSLR, one Panasonic bridge) are collecting dust on a shelf.
I cannot even hope to sell them one fifth of the price I paid for them. !!!
Digital stuff takes snaps and is worth nothing the minute after you have bought it because they turned out 3 new versions since you… Read Full Review

“When I recently travelled to the Philippines I wanted...”

Written on: 23/07/2005 by andres bonifacio (2 reviews written)

When I recently travelled to the Philippines I wanted to take a camera that would be easy on the shoulders and would not fail me. My Nikons and Contaxes were too heavy, and my Leica needed servicing (otherwise, it fits the bill). That left me with my 20 year old, recently-serviced OM1N. What a great picture-taking tool!
This camera is light, quick, quiet and totally reliable. It's metering is old-fashion (center-weighted Cds only), the shutter speeds only go 1-1/1000s, and there is no exposure… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/09/2004 by andrew brown (1 review written)

Olympus OM1n - The OM series led the way to smaller cameras, yet were packed with features and solidly engineered. The 3 I have must all be 25 years old at least, all bought secondhand and all in fine condition and will probably last another 25 years at least!… Read Full Review

“Phil, I mean no disrespect but I beg to differ with...”

Written on: 06/04/2003 by Rob. (1 review written)

Phil, I mean no disrespect but I beg to differ with several of your criticisms. Are you willing to sit on the edge of your couch and let your new camera drop to the floor? Not that I would drop my om1n on purpose but I know it would survive. With the newer cameras you would be left with a several hundred dollar electronics bill. That is what we mean by the old model T build. They were built to last real world use over many years. Also the zuiko optics still rival anything made today and are… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2004

This isn't a camera review, it's more like an argument over old vs. newer cameras. Not very helpful in rating the camera. And who the heck is 'Phil'?
