The Olympus Om 1 is a very user friendly SLR, compact and good quality that won't let you down.
My stepfather bought this camera when he was young, now 30 years later i am using it and it still works fine. It was in his time (mid seventies), one of the lightest and compact SLR cameras. It also was one of the best performing 35mm SLR cameras of that time. It’s also very easy to use. The light meter is a needle with a plus and minus symbol, The lens got a maximum aperture of 1.8 which gives my photos a nice blurred background. You can set the aperture on the end of the lens. The shutter speed is set at the lens mount. I got my first photos just developed and I’m very happy with them.
