To open the camera, you need to close the lens, then with the rewind mechanism, flip open the handle and lift the whole rewind mechanism and the handle and it will open the back of the camera. I hope this helps.

Looking for a digital conversion for Olympus Om 4T


If you mean a kit to convert the OM-4T to digital, you won't find one.

You would have to strip out the film mechanism and put in the sensor and other electronics to process and save the images. You may be able to use the parts from a similar-sized digital camera (like the Olympus OM-D), but then, why not just use the digital camera as a camera instead of as parts?

Olympus om-1 i have had for 3 years and never got it out till now to take pictures up on stage of my grandchildren so really need a answer ASAP for tomorrow night what kind of film thanks and God Bless....


The OM-1 uses standard 35mm film. You can use black-and-white, color print, or color slide film. Color print film should be available at most drugstores. A good camera store will have all types of film.

Is there a way to turn off the flash?


The flash is automatic, you cannot control the flash. But you can put some black tape over the flash if you really don't want flash. Remember though, if the camera meter decides flash is needed, then your pictures could turn out dark/underexposed by covering the flash.

The manual can be found here: http://www.olympus-europa.com/consumer/208_manuals.cfm?prodID=P_N1246352

The manual says use 100, 200 or 400 iso films.

Maybe try high iso film like 800 iso or 1600 iso, best to try this out ahead of time to make sure you are satisfied with the results. The high iso films need less light so should perform better without flash, but the camera may not be able to rate these films correctly, trial and error is definitely required.

This is for you camera experts!!! I have an Olympus camera that belonged to my father. The only numbers on it are OM-1n. it is pre digital. I would like to find out more about this camera and possibly...


You can download a manual for the OM-1 from
http://butkus.org/chinon/olympus/olympus_om-1/olympus_om-1.htm

The OM-1MD is the same camera as the OM-1 with the added provision for taking a motor drive to advance the film automatically.

The OM-1n is the same as the OM-1MD with a redesigned film advance lever, a flash ready/sufficient flash LED in the viewfinder, and automatic X-sync regardless of the position of the FP/X switch, when it is used with a T-series flash unit mounted on Flash Shoe 4.

Olympus om f manual


Hey _tj_,
The reason you’re not finding a download of your cameras manual is because the Olympus OM F is actually the Olympus OM 30, and was only called the F in limited markets. To get a download of your camera manual Google search "Olympus om 30 camera manual download" and the first link should bring up your camera's specs, and down at the bottom of the page there is a link that says OM manual. This link should bring up a PDF file of your camera's manual.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
