Olympus OM101

Released 1988

This is yet another not-very-interesting SLR. The most noteworthy point is that it has “power focus”. This is manual focus, but adjusted using a thumbwheel and an electric motor, rather than by twisting the lens barrel.

Unusually for an SLR, exposure is fully automatic unless you buy the additional “manual control unit” which clips on the side and has knobs to adjust the aperture and shutter speed.
