Today's STAR BUY is an OLYMPUS OM-4 35mm film camera body. Please study the super-sized pics for condition. A bit of rubbing to the film door edges and of course the film identification holder.  New batteries have been fitted and the light meter is operating as it should. The shutter speed appear to be correct. The viewfinder inevitably has some light inside dust, but this is not visible when viewing and focusing. OLYMPUS strap included..

The camera has recently been serviced and a copy of the report can be included if required..

PLEASE NOTE that the light seals will be renewed as standard before dispatch. Poor light seals will render your camera useless...

Olympus OM-4

If you are addicted to High-End mechanics, optics or electronics, OM-4 is the gadget for you. It is extremely well made, complicated enough, reliable to use but still within reach of ordinary people. A poor man's Nikon or Leica, whatever. The whole OM "single number" series has been a tool for the professionals and advanced amateurs and it has carried out its job creditably. Nobody can deny that OM-system would not be one of the most sophisticated equipment systems ever built for film imaging purposes.

The OM-4 replaced the OM-2n in 1984 and it was manufactured until 1987. It incorporates the same features as its mechanical sister camera, the OM-3. OM-4 is not a purebred mechanical camera but it is a splendid combination of a variety of several technical elements of our times. Even though it now is an over thirty years old construction or even a decade more if you count it from the release date of M-1, later named OM-1. The OM-4 was only made in black

At the Photokina of Cologne in 1972 Olympus introduced the first of a generation of extremely compact, full-featured 35mm SLRs called the Olympus M-1 but the name was soon changed to OM-1.
Three years later, it brought forth the equally compact OM-2. the first SLR to incorporate direct, through-lens metering off the film and/or patterned shutter curtain, and TTL autorlash. Finally, late in 1983,
Olympus announced the OM-4, the first SLR to combine all the salient features of a sophisticated professional exposure meter, plus a comprehensive LCD finder readout system, in a traditonal OM-sized body. As the name suggests, the OM-4's Multi-Spot Metering system is capable of measuring discrete, limited areas of the subject, either individually or in multiple readings which are automatically integrated into a single exposure. Suppose, for example, that you see areas ot sharply different brightness within the frame. After you select the precise areas you want to be included in determining the exposure, and take separate readings of each, an onboard computer calculates and integrates them into the exposure you'll get when you press the shutter release. For instance, you might choose to take two separate readings of highlight and shadow areas of a face, plus a third reading off the subject's clothing. The exterior design of the OM-4 represents a logical extension of the OM-1 and OM-2. In fact, the basic body shape and control arrangement of the OM-4 is quite similar to that of the previous models.

Olympus started out as Takachiho Seisakusho on October 12, 1919 . The brand name Olympus was started to be used extensively in 1921. Now it is a huge international company with several business lines all of which have in common ultimately modern technics. Digital cameras, film cameras, binoculars and scanners are familiar to everybody whereas endoscopes, laboratory automation systems, optical measuring systems, tools for optical industry and ultra high resolution image processing systems, just to mention a few, maybe not .
