OM-1 miniatures!
 
Some of you may remember a long time ago that we gave away a good number of O-M1 miniatures.


**** Please note, I only have black OM-1 miniatures, not the silver version below. Otherwise they are the same, with the two lenses. ****


Here's the description from February 2012:

To celebrate the launch of the digital OM or OM-D E-M5 Olympus has produced a commemorative miniature of an OM-1 with two lenses that actually fit the OM body. This is what they look like and you can see from the last photo how small these models are:

http://e-group.uk.net/images/forum/P2230139.jpg

http://e-group.uk.net/images/forum/P2230140.jpg

The presentation box comes with an OM-1 body and two lenses and these are not made for sale.

After a bit of a clear out I have found a whole box of them :)

As part of our ongoing funding appeal, I'd like to offer these to e-group members. Here's the plan:
[LIST][*]Purchase an OM-1 miniature for 10 including P&P - you must be a registered member of the e-group.
[*]Anyone who has already donated to the appeal fund up to 26th July can claim an OM-1 miniature for the cost of P&P only (1).

The miniatures will be posted Royal Mail Second Class. Until initial requests are satisfied and only if there are any left over, it's first come first served and only one miniature per member, please.

I'm happy to post miniatures overseas but I'd need to calculate the extra cost of postage to charge.

The sales will be handled by the company (The Write Technology Ltd) and so will be independent of the T&Cs and Privacy Policy of the e-group website. The company will of course honour your privacy and personal details.

If you are interested, please email me via ian.burley (at) e-group.uk.net

Thanks,

Ian

PS The offer applies to e-group members who registered up to 26th July 2018. If you are not a member, you can purchase a miniature for 20 including UK postage. Members who joined after 26th July 2018 can purchase a miniature for 15 including UK postage. New members posting a minimum of ten meaningful forum messages will qualify for the same offer as other members.

Re: OM-1 miniatures!
 
That is a good idea Ian. I don't need one as I found mine up the other day and a very cute little item it is too. It's something that no self respecting OM user should be without. Hopefully it will help to generate a bit of cash for the forum.

Re: OM-1 miniatures!
 
Haha - well thank you for all the excitement! Can I just ask for everyone to hold on until tomorrow. It appears the box has been put back in storage and I just want to double-check that these are the OM-1s pictured. I have just realised they might be E-M1s, but I will check and get back to you all tomorrow morning.

Sorry for this complication!

Good morning everyone; I can confirm that the miniatures are OM-1s, but they are black, not silver as pictured earlier. They have the interchangeable lenses. I will post a photo shortly :)

Keep one for me please.
Would like a black to have a pair.

I take it they use mini micro cards instead of film. ..................................

So, I said to swmbo, 'I could do with a new camera'.
She said ..'But you only got a new one last October'.
I said 'Yes but this one's only a tenner, and it's for a good cause'
She said 'Awwww ... go on then' :D :D

I tried to donate by paypal a few weeks ago, but for some reason it didn't work, then I went away. However I've now set up a small monthly donation - which will at least save me the mental effort to remember at regular intervals.

Would love a miniature camera too please….

Ian 1st August 2018 10:01 AM

Re: OM-1 miniatures!
 
I have just emailed most of those who have claimed a miniature to inform them that they were posted by 2nd Class mail yesterday and that they should be receiving them accordingly in the next few days. I'm taking a couple that require overseas postage to the post office later today.

There are still a little over a dozen available so if you are interested please get in touch without delay to avoid disappointment :)

A nice offer, but my silver version is enough for me (bought it off ebay at the time) so my donation was not with an expectation for this one thanks.

Re: OM-1 miniatures!
 
Some more miniatures were posted yesterday and I have just emailed the recipients. There are a few more to deal with today. We still have some remaining, so get in touch if you are interested!

Actually, I just dug my present one out & it is black (the silver mount deceived me) so I guess I'd be looking for the silver version if one came up. :rolleyes:
