Re: Olympus 35RC

Thanks Richard, that's helpful hearing from an owner / user rather than reading reviews on the 'net. I have the Rollei 35LED that also uses an obsolete mercury battery, so I purchased a converter from the little battery company. I believe it uses a shotkey diode to trim the voltage from 4x1.5 to something close to the 5.6 (or is it 5.7?) that the LM was designed to use.
I think I'll have a look in the charity shops, rather than spend some more on something that may offer limited gain cf the Rollei. I'm like a magpie when I see a nice clean film camera. Can't help myself.

Edit: Thanks also to John.
