    Before I got my Rebel, I used an old Olympus model as my primary camera. My mom got when she was in college and I've been curious as to what model it is. I don't have a picture on hand of it, but it has a black Tolex-like material covering the body with a metal top. It has a built-in light meter and automatic shutter speed settings and all the normal goodies of an old film camera. I went to Olympus' site and couldn't find anything. Is there anyone that knows of a site that has information on legacy products?

    OM-10: plastic top and bottom cover (except 2 screw bottom cover which is metal). Was released at time when industry was introducing "entry level" slr bodies. Canon had all plastic AV-1, Nikon had EM. OM-10 had constant problems with oily magnet which causes wildly overexposed first shots after camera had sat for awhile.
