Re: Olympus OM2 SP Firing Blanks

Re: Olympus OM2 SP Firing Blanks

The OM2 Spot Programme did have a reputation for eating batteries. Hopefully this will be better now.

Re: Olympus OM2 SP Firing Blanks

The total cost was 135 + VAT, which seems a lot of money to repair an old camera, but I know it will be very well used. Our son is using it for his 35 mm work at university as the uni cameras...

Re: Olympus OM2 SP Firing Blanks

I sent an email to Luton Cameras this afternoon and received a prompt repose.

"Service: 85.00 + vat + P&P

Re: Olympus OM2 SP Firing Blanks

OK, thanks. I don't mind taking the base plate off for a look but I wouldn't be too happy taking the top plate off! :eek:
