While my favourite 35mm camera series is the Canon FD range, it is undeniable that the Olympus OM-1 is also an iconic model. This camera was given to me by a friend.
It takes a mercury battery which is now impossible to obtain, but fortunately the battery is only used for metering. Without the battery, the OM-1 can still be used as a fully manual SLR.
