My Thoughts on this Camera

I bought a PM1 because it had a fault. I thought maybe O could fix the fault but unfortunately not. The shutter is stuck on a single speed. No controls can change the shutter speed. It is such a shame as I like this camera – great spec /including video in a small simple body. It of course can utilise the full range of Micro Four Thirds Lenses. The camera I bought came with two lenses (one faulty), a box and an auxiliary Viewfinder that will work with my Olympus XZ-1.



My Last Thoughts - Keep & Use, or Sell?

Will I keep it? No, because it has a fault I cannot fix
Will I use it? Wish I could
