I shot my first ever roll of film around 2 years ago. Since then, I have shot 5 rolls. I am no more than a beginner in film photography. It all started when I discovered a magic drawer containing all the cameras that my father had inherited or bought during his life, that is, more than 30 film cameras of all sorts.
I was wondering if I should write this post, as there is so much information about Olympus OM series in the internet? Well… In the end, I decided, why not? I have watched and read countless number of videos and reviews about every camera from this family. I own 10 OM cameras, and anytime I see one at a decent price I buy it.
The Olympus OM2n is an SLR camera that was given to me by a member of my girlfriend’s family. I’ve found this to be one of the nice aspects of film photography, when talking about this hobby, it’s quite often that someone proposes to give me an old family camera, in fact so much so that I have to limit myself in order to shoot and not being submerged by all this photographic equipment. Gear addiction, gear addiction…
My first experience with film started when my friend let me take some photos with her camera, one of which just struck me (to this day I think it is one of the best photos I have taken). After that, I remembered that at my parents’ apartment there is a point and shoot camera – Olympus Superzoom 700XB. It is extremely cheap and not so good, but it still worked. I took it to Barcelona for the holidays and shot two rolls of film there. When I got scans back – I got hooked.
