LAUNCHED 1984 GUIDE PRICE £350-400* This is a stripped- down ver­sion of the OM- 4, fea­tur­ing the same me­ter­ing sys­tem, but with a me­chan­i­cal shut­ter that is no longer con­trolled by the au­to­matic me­ter­ing. Back in the day, those who wanted a me­chan­i­cal shut­ter tended to stick with the OM-1n. So the OM-3 wasn’t made in the same quan­ti­ties. To­day, even though it isn’t as well spec­i­fied as some other OM cam­eras, it is rarer and more sought-af­ter by col­lec­tors, and so more ex­pen­sive for users.
