See the OM-1 still working after being completely covered in powder!


OM Digital released the first part of their OM-1 development story. The Japanese text can be read here at Fotopus (and here the Google translation). Here is the text explaining the image you see on top:

This is a photograph just after the dustproof test. It is a test to prove that there is no intrusion into the camera even if you continue to use powder, which is like baby powder, for 8 hours. Of course, in addition to these, a powerful dust reduction system that allows you to change lenses safely even in the sand and a highly durable shutter unit are equipped with the same or better than before.

It is not only reliable because it is designed to prevent water droplets and dust from entering from the outside, but it is also developed with particular attention to making it hard to break by using even the internal parts, so you can use it with confidence.
