Olympus OM-1/1n VS OM-2/2n | 35mm SLR Manual Flim Camera Buying Guide

In this video, I review and compare two very popular 35mm manual focus SLR film camera choices from Olympus.

All OM-1/1n/2/2n models suffer from the famous foam deteriorating defect that requires prism cleaning remedy. See my detailed repair video here:

What does the “n” model improve upon the original? Well the “n” designation added direct contact at the camera back to use with cordless recordata backs (older back can also be used with PC terminal), a flash ready LED in the viewfinder, and regardless of the position of the FP/X switch is set at, automatic X-sync with Shoe-4 flash attachment when any of the dedicated flashes are used.
