I am asking for some advice what to do about a camera of mine. With my SLR cameras I have not gone digital and do not plan to do so any time soon. A few years ago, I bought a used Olympus OM-20 while being in France on a semester-abroad program because I had traded one of my planned courses for a photography course and thus didn't have a proper camera with me. When I use color negative film, one doesn't see any problems because the printing machines in the stores adjust a photographer's mistake. However, when I use b/w negative film, where I do the prints myself, or color positive film, it becomes evident that the pictures are all overexposed. Since I have an OM-2, as well, and the OM-20 was just a quick and cheap buy (now I know why ), I haven't cared a lot about this issue. Then a few months ago, I found a small, but long established, camera repair shop and brought my OM-20 there to have it checked. The guy told me that the electronic device which measures the light is broken and cannot be repaired since Olympus doesn't have any spare parts left.
Overall, I am not shedding tears over the camera, but I wonder what I shall do with it now. I thought of selling it on eBay, mentioning that it had this defect. Any suggestions or ideas?
