In this article, we will introduce the shutter speed dial of OLYMPUS’s 1979 manual focus film SLR camera.

OLYMPUS OM10 (Reference product)

It will be a film SLR camera released in 1979 with a black steel body and black pasted leather.

The shutter speed is basically set to auto for AE (automatic exposure control), but the shutter speed can be set manually with the optional manual adapter.

First, select Auto or Manual with the dial knob integrated with the shutter release button.
The B shutter release setting is set with this knob.
To select manual shutter speed, turn the dial counterclockwise.

An optional manual adapter is located on the front of the body near the film rewind handle.

It is dialable.

You can select a shutter speed from 1 to 1/1000 sec.

In this article, we introduced the shutter speed dial of an Olympus manual focus SLR camera released in 1979.

In this OM10, we were able to discover Olympus’ original method of using an optional manual adapter, evolving from the shutter speed dial built into the lens mount that we have previously introduced.

I am very interested in Olympus’ original line!

I hope to continue to share with you my discoveries in various areas with film cameras, so please look forward to it!
