trungtran: Mite have to go get a slide projector at the thrift store before prices start increasing.

I still have my Agfa projector, bought in the UK in 1980 (my bride's wedding present to me -- is it a wonder that I kept her?) it has variable 110-220 voltage so still works great here in Canada.

sirhawkeye64: i'm honestly considering getting a film SLR camera to play around with now that film seems to be coming back... even if it's just for a short time (a few years before it might die off again) at least I'll have had the chance to shoot film on a film SLR (I always had the cheapy point and shoot film cameras--never a nice film camera, and certainly not an SLR). In fact, I'm glad that many schools who teach photography start people out with B&W and film photography first before they can even use a digital camera. makes on really think about their captures more because each click on a film camera is money you've basically just spend. Not like digital where we can discard it and try again (well you can with film, but it would get expensive after a while). One of my friends had to use an old SLR film camera for her first photography class, and the second class, all pictures had to be in B&W, once they mastered exposure and basic compositional elements using a manual film camera.

If you're lucky, it's and OM1 or OM2, the most beautiful camera ever made (same body shell, just a change to the switch and the ASA selector knob). If you're unlucky, it's the plasticy OM10 or one of the later variants.

BigMacIain: That looks like an Olympus E-M1 in those pictures. A *weather-proof* camera.

Looking at it again, it's more likely to be an E-M10, which isn't weatherproof.

BigMacIain: I don't see any reference to using 4/3 lenses with an adapter. Can I assume that there are no changes in that regard from the previous version?
I'm looking to finally upgrade my E-520 but I have no intention of getting rid of my 12-60SWD.

What would the 620 give me over the 520, Collin?

At almost twice the price of the E-M10, unfortunately. I think I'll be hanging on to my 520 for a while.
