Camera Man

I was given an old camera today. An Olympus OM 10. It's a film camera, one which my OMD is based.

Some time ago I signed up with a site called Freegle, as I had some stuff to give away that wouldn't be of any interest to a charity shop, and so every day I get emails about things that people want to off load. It can be anything; old pallets, furniture, material, even computers. So I was quite pleased to read about the Olympus.

I've put some new batteries in and found out that it seems to work OK. I will have to try it with a film to see if it takes any pictures.

It comes with a 50mm f1.8 lens, which although slightly battered, looks in good condition and with no fungus growing inside.
