Olympus OM-1 Samplr

One of my favorite film camera is Olympus OM-1, it’s easy to use and comfortable. The first model was presented at Photokina in Cologne in 1972 and was called the Olympus M-1 and reduced size, weight and noise of the 35 mm SLRs & designed by team led by Yoshihisa Maitani.

The OM-1 is an all-mechanical SLR. It has a large viewfinder with interchangeable screens but a fixed prism. It also has a through-the-lens exposure meter controlling a needle visible in the viewfinder. It has a compact body, essentially retained on later models. The shutter speed dial is located around the lens mount, which allows photographers to keep the camera at the eye between shots more easily than SLRs with the dial located on the top plate (Wikipedia)
