This camera takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'. It has survived several transatlantic trips in the mail without proper packaging, and still takes great photos.

An old classic that allows photographic freedom. You have to go on ebay to find a lot of the accessories you may need, but a great camera nonetheless.

The OM-10 is compact and easy to understand and use. Auto function is one of the best I've seen, and switching from auto to manual is easy. The pictures I've taken with this camera have always pleased me. I don't like the manual adapter which is necessary in order to take flash pictures. Once it is lost, your flash function can no longer be used. Flash pictures have always been a problem. It also has a tendency to have the shutter stick, and as the camera gets older, it is harder to be sure your film is engaged.

I think the camera is as good as one can expect from such an old model. It takes fantastic pictures and there's nothing I don't like about it.

I love my old Olympus OM-10s. I have four of them plus one for parts. They work great when they are working right, but they are old (like me) and tend to be finicky when loading film. I'm sticking with film for now because of the challenge of getting the shot right as opposed to fixing it later on a computer.

Solid camera to learn with. Lots of great years of service and still a great camera. Lens quality is not up to todays standards but what a great tool anyway.

Wonderful little camera. It is light and fairly easy to use. Bit old fashioned with the manual film loading but I got used to it fast enough. The 50mm lens is absolutely fantastic. It is extreemely sharp and the colors coming out are just like you see in real life, if not even better. Manual focusing is smooth and I truly like about 95% of images I take with it. The ones that I do not like are not because of the camera but beacuse of me ;) I would recommend it for a beginner photographer.

I love this thing. It's older (1980-ish) and captures imagery very softly
