Talking Retro Digital Cameras

If Olympus were to make an OM3 Ti D, would you want one?

Leica have done one and now maybe Canon will...

Re: Retro Digital Cameras

As long as it was a true OM3Ti-D devoid of all the pointless gimmicks that have cluttered the various bodies over the past decade.

Although I'd prefer an OM4Ti-D as long as it was more reliable than the original OM4.

But it probably couldn't take the amount of abuse my OM1 survived over the decades. Being dropped into a pit box from the gallery above the pits at Le Mans, being submerged in Georgian Bay for 15 minutes before being dried out in an oven and being bounced along the gutter of Charing Cross Road so hard you couldn't read the frame counter. I think that's the top three but there were others.

Any reason why you felt the need to make it suffer like that David?

It was a mechanical back up to my OM2N and OM4 bodies so got used in higher risk situations. I was at Le Mans shooting promotional/publicity for one of the teams. Luckily it was their pit box I dropped the camera into so one of the pit crew threw the camera back up to me. The Charing Cross Road incident was two pissed up photogs and a pissed up film editor running to catch the last tube. The other photog thought the bouncing camera was so funny he nearly fell into the gutter laughing.

We can merely wish of manual DSLR, but fishy stuff apart, I'll continue with my manual full frame RF Leica.

My OM4 was so bad I couldn't use it with a T series flash switched on mounted on the hot shoe. By the time you were ready to take a shot the camera batteries had died. It became my Kodachrome 25 landscape body.

Re: Retro Digital Cameras

An OM4Ti body with full frame sensor would be epic.

A selection of new, digital optimised fast primes to go with it would be even better, although I would hope to use the lenses that I already have.

But how would you make the mechanical frame counter go up to 9,999?

Given the small size of the OM4Ti's body there wouldn't be much space for a battery, so we are back to square one on that front!

PS: For those who still own and use the OM4Ti as I do, silver oxide cells work better, and last longer than the modern lithium thingummies. They are difficult to find in the shops, but are readily available online.

Re: Retro Digital Cameras

Building on the above for the OM4Ti, arrange a succession of sensors on a bandelier, with the used frames going through a 'wash and dry' valet before returning for he next (let's say n+4 for the sake of argument) exposure. With this ingenious mod, the shutter advance lever is given a new lease of life.

Re: Retro Digital Cameras

Ignoring the Canon nonsense.

Having read a review of the Leica M10 I would love an Oly version of such thing as it is os simple. That would do me for Landscape shots.

I have an M240, it's a no nonsense, easy to use camera. The M10 follows the same formula, but goes one better in my opinion by removing the silly video button on the 240. The M240 has a better battery life, typically I charge it once every week or so.

I have a better idea. This is an OM4Ti we are talking about, so how about a battery magazine, with the film advance lever used to spray dead ones at nearby Canikon users?
