Some changes

somebody at complained about OM-3s descrition. Tried to brush it up

edited by U. kulick on May 5, 2006

I went forward in the same direction, with more details of the OM-3 and OM-4 metering system.
I only removed the mention of the OM-3 as a "popular camera". It is popular and desirable today, in the user / collector market, but at the time it did not sell well, while it was only a little more expensive than the OM-4 ($339 vs $300 in 1986 according to this page). --Rebollo fr 12:19, 6 May 2006 (EDT)

Reverted a mistake

This diff was adding a mistake to the page and I reverted it: both the OM-1 and OM-1n were designed for mercury batteries. The OM-1n was presented in 1979 and the mercury battery interdiction occured much later. --Rebollo fr 19:39, 20 June 2006 (EDT)


There are no full specifications for any of the cameras listed (like there are for most others), is there any reason not to? Kongzi 07:56, 6 May 2010 (EDT)

There is no particular reason. But tables of specifications are often quite ugly, and in case we add some, we should be careful to keep the (quite) beautiful page layout. --rebollo_fr 09:58, 7 May 2010 (EDT)
Agreed, the page is a nice and I wouldn't wish to ruin that. Some of us (myself!) quite enjoy technical details on devices of all kinds, it would be good to have the details as a point of reference. Perhaps they can be added to the bottom of the page, away from the nice layout? Kongzi 14:54, 7 May 2010 (EDT)
Yes, I think placing them at the bottom of the page would be appropriate. Maybe making a table comparing the features of the various models would be nice? --rebollo_fr 18:02, 7 May 2010 (EDT)
I'll have a stab at putting a table together some time soon and I'll post it on this page for review. Kongzi 06:54, 10 May 2010 (EDT)
