Manual film based camera

A black Olympus OM-1 - my new (used) film based mechanical camera. We born at the same year: 1972.

I brought it at ebay and one 85mm f/2 manual focus prime lens from a local camera shop at Ap Liu Street, HK. Both sold at a reasonable price (not exceed US$500 on aggregate). I tested it at that coming weekend, however, quite a rainy day so that I did not finish a complete roll ....

I still love taking pics with film based manual camera, especially mechanical one. They are reliable and, more important, you will make your every shot much more with your thought than a digital camera being used.

If you are new to photography, film based manual camera should always be your best choice.
