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. Exposure compensation is still...

Excellent

ProGreat Quality

ConsLittle dated

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. I have done a little bit of research on the origins...

ConsI find it tricky to put the film in the camera

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. I love taking photos, but not for me the up to...

ProVery Versatile, Build and Image Quality

ConsUmmmm ...............

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. I'd...

“Excellent manual camera”

published 09/08/2000

ProLightweight, solid and reliable

Consout of production - parts hard to find

Looking to buy an excellent manual camera that is cheap and reliable? I bought an Olympus OM-10 for night time astrophotography because of the cheap cost of the camera as well as its BULB settings and because my other camera was using too many batteries for night time pictures. If you are an...

ProVariety of lenses, quality of photos

ConsNeed of an adaptor to make manual.

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. It can be...

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. The ASA/ISO dial on top of the OM-10 is needlessly fiddly to use - my other OM cameras, a 30...
