I and not a very OM knowledgeable person and I have a friend of mine with a OM-2 that needs repair. The frame advance lever is stuck and will not advance and obviously the shutter will not fire. I Am mainly a Minolta guy and i have taken apart and fixed my Minolta cameras before to replace the capacitors and such, but i hesitate to mess with the unknown OM. I took it someplace for my friend and they quoted me about a hundred or less, bucks to fix it. The recommend buying a new one off an auction site instead. there is an OM-PC selling for about 30 but i don't know if its a better camera or not. My friend is a novice Photographer taking A photo class with me and usu mostly digital . My friend uses a Digital camera for our Lighting class but wants to shoot more film. My friend got the camera over the summer and used it last semester for a B&W photo I class and loves the OM because of the controls seeming so simple and well placed. I don't know if the PC would be an upgrade . Can anyone help me with some advice? Too bad i cant fix the OM-2 myself, I would save my friend some money and headaches.
