Re: Olympus mju/Stylus

On that note we often used to travel with just a Olympus mju (Stylus in USA) with its 35mm focal length and easy clam-shell on/off operation. The later mju zooms had light seal problems as the back sealed with a gasket ring and not the usual overlapping slot arrangement.

But, film = pain, be warned.

Nostalgia is good where it belongs.... in the past.

Film = pain, I will secon that !  Plus it is expensive, very expensive. It used to be back in the film times and you had to think twice before taking a picturYou it cost in film and then cost in processing. Those prices now are higher because this has got rarer than digital. So be warned : you may get a cheap body and lenses, but you will have to pay quite a lot for processing : whether you give it out, or whether you buy a scanner (you can't just use the usual scanner for film) and developping tanks for the emulsion.

I have very fnd memories of my Olympus XA !   Blight has got light leaks now. Good film bodes and lenses are still equites expensive. I was surprised to see how much my Zeiss Contax G would cost on the sed market !
