The OM-1 uses a single 1.35 volt alkaline or mercury battery (Eveready or UCAR EXP625, Mallory PX625, or equivalent). You should be able to find this battery at an electronics or an office-supply store. One online source is

    The OM-1n uses the same battery as the OM-1.

    Should I expect the same rating for anwering the question you meant to ask rather than for answering the question you did ask?

  • rppride Aug 24, 2010

    Thank you for answering my question. I apologize for degrading your integrity.

    There is the question of 1.35volt camera and 1.5volt battery solution. Again I am sorry.

  • omtech1 Apr 25, 2011

    The alkaline battery that is offered today is really 1.55V and causes a 2-3 stop error in the OM-1/1N meter. Your closest accurate solution is to use 1.4V Weincell. I don't recommend them because it is an "air activated" battery (you remove plastic seal to expose holes on battery, battery starts chemical reaction which makes 1.4V) but it is likely your easiest option without converting your meter to the 1.55V silver oxide battery. John, Olympus service since 1977.

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.

Ol filme camera lenes fit mycanon ef-s digital eos 1000D


Hello,

are your old film lenses FD or EF mounts ?
(Is the old film camera a Canon ?)

EF will fit EFS fine. My expeariance is with the EOS 3000 EF film camera (2002 -etc) and these work fine.

If you have Canon FD, there are some lens converters out there however I have not seen any yet which electrically connect and there is no AF. All Manual focus.

I have used Olympus OM mount adaptors with manual focus to mount older/different mount lenses with some success (As an example).

Best idea is to search ebay for your mount converters.

How to KNOW the light is right 4 an Olympus OM20 Manual camera?


OM-20 was basically a upgraded OM-10 with the manual adapter built in and a number of other refinements.

The viewfinder has LED's to show the shutter speed recommended by the camera's lightmeter for the ISO and aperture selected. It also has an exposure compensation indicator (the +/- symbol) and an indicator for flash ready which doubles up as a post-exposure flash confirmation. There is also the indicator lamp to show manual mode has been selected. OM-10 lacks the manual mode lamp and the +/- indicator.

Like the OM-10, the OM-20 is primarily an aperture priority automatic camera. In this mode you set the ISO film speed, choose which aperture you wish to use (with the ability to use the lens depth of field preview button) and then the camera selects the correct shutter speed. The +/- exposure compensation control allows the user to tell the camera to modify the recommended shutter speed by up to two stops either way.

In manual mode, there is no manual metering. The light meter behaves exactly as it does in aperture priority mode and the viewfinder shows the recommended shutter speed and not the manually selected one. Correct metering is therefore a case of adjusting the aperture first, and then choosing the correct shutter speed indicated in the viewfinder. If the user then decides to select a different shutter speed, then the aperture ring must be adjusted to maintain the correct exposure. For example the aperture is set to f8 and the camera recommends 1/60th of a second. The user decides that a faster shutter speed is required and chooses 1/250th, but the viewfinder remains showing 1/60th. In order to keep the same exposure value the user must open the aperture by two full stops to f4. The camera's light meter will detect the new aperture setting and providing the light on the object is unchanged the viewfinder shutter speed display should now show 1/250th as well to confirm the correct adjustment. Alternatively, the user can choose the shutter speed first by looking at what has been set on the control ring (or by turning the ring to the end of its travel and then counting the clicks from there as all experienced OM users do) and then turning the aperture ring until the shutter speed shown in the viewfinder matches what's been manually set.

It all sounds clumsy and complex but is done far more quickly than I've taken to type this and becomes second nature.

Aperture priority metering is selected on the camera by choosing AUTO on the mode selecter. In this mode the shutter speed ring has no effect and the viewfinder always displays the automatically selected shutter speed.

Olympus om-2 cvamera lenses


You are able to use your old OM lenses with a new Olympus digital SLR camera. You will need to purchase an MF-OM 1 lens adapter to be able to connect these lenses to the digital SLR camera. Also when using these lenses you will only be able to use the camera in manual focus mode as these lenses are not capable to shhot with an auto focus mode.

WHERE IS THE SERIAL NUMBER LOCATED ON FE-110 OLMPUS CAMERA


If the new computer is running Vista operating system the Olympus Master version 1.x software is not compatible.

To learn about the new and free version of Olympus Master 2 software go to:
For Windows:
http://downloads.olympus-europa.com/OM2/win/OM211Setup.exe
For MAC:
Olympus Master 2.11: http://downloads.olympus-europa.com/OM2/Mac/OM211EN.dmg
This software replaces all previous versions of Camedia Master 4.x and Olympus Master 1.x.

Since this is a free download there is no serial number needed.

You can use the lens from your old OM camera on the EVOLT E-410. You would need to purchase an MF-OM-1 adapter to make those lenses fit the new digital SLR camera. Also when using those lenses the camera would need to be used in Manual mode as there is no auto focus capability when using the old OM lenses.

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.
