This will be my last post for a couple of weeks. On Friday Kate and I leave for a two week trip to Amsterdam and Berlin, and on our return I have jury duty for a week, so I likely will not be posting again until the second week of November.

Returned from the Dead: OM1 Revived


OM1, 50 Zuiko, TriX, Xtol 1+1

After months of sitting on the shelf with a dead shutter, my OM1 returned from the dead last week. While aimlessly fiddling with it, the self-timer became unstuck, thereby freeing the stuck shutter. The first roll through it turned out fine, so the self-timer seems to have been the extent of the problem.

I’m glad to have it back, as I’d forgotten how enjoyable this camera is to use. As much as I like my rangefinders, a good SLR can be a joy to use. I wish that more modern SLRs were more like the OM1.
