Greatest Cameras of All Time… No. 38 Olympus OM-1: The OM-1 really is one of the most loved and highly regarded of film SLRs. The first model was launched in 1972 and was called the M-1. Thirteen years earlier, the release of the Nikon F had made the 35mm SLR the standard choice for professionals accustomed to using Leicas and other rangefinders, but it had driven the market towards heavy and bulky cameras. The Olympus M-1 changed all that and with it began a reduction of size, weight and noise of the 35mm SLRs. Since Leica’s flagship rangefinder cameras are known as the M Series, the company complained about the name of the M-1, forcing Olympus to rename it theOM-1. The OM-1 is an all-mechanical SLR with a very large viewfinder with interchangeable screens but a fixed prism. It also featuresa through-the-lens exposure meter and, quirkily, has the shutter speed dial around the lens mount rather than on the camera’s top plate. It’s not fashionable but it is brilliant.

Another Reason I Love My Family

Another Reason I Love My Family: We all speak camera. And we’re a Nikon family.

I Tweeted/Google Buzzed about how I had just bought a new Nikon D7000 but would now have to live off of ramen.

My brother’s response via Google Buzz: “with our powers combined we have a nikon D10100 :) and if you come back to CA you can also live off .49 cent burritos from del taco.”

This actually made me laugh out loud.  He has a D3100 so we really could make an intense Nikon camera.  Also, I miss Mexican food, even fake Mexican food like Del Taco.  But even more so, I miss my family.  I am so excited to see them in a month when they come to Boston for Commencement.
