Olympus 35 SP
I recently picked up an Olympus 35 SP from a Goodwill auction. The lens seemed to be in great condition, and the case and manual were like new.
More importantly, the camera felt great in my hands and I've always wanted a nice little rangefinder. I took it down to the local camera repair shop, which has a good reputation in the city.
I got a message from one of the technicians at the shop, and he quoted me a fair price to get it up to speed. I'm a big fan of spot metering, and use it pretty regularly. I guess there weren't too many cameras from that period with spot metering, but would this be a common problem when repairing a 35 SP or any older spot meter?
If anyone's got experience with this sort of thing, I'd appreciate your thoughts. I suppose I could live with it being off center, if that's the case, but would like to avoid it if possible.
Umm I thought it used a typical photocell on the front of the lens. If he's telling you that, I worry. Gandy's site shows unit with two modes for metering: Produced from to about , the Olympus 35 SP has the distinction of being the only 35 Rangefinder with a dual metering system: spot or centerweighted readings.
This is amazing since the camera is over 30 years old and to date no other RF has equaled the 35 SP's dual metering. Yes indeed, it was far ahead of its time. If you don't count the Leica M5 and CL with their large spot meters, the 35 SP is also the only 35 rangefinder with spot metering! I was thinking of the 35RC, my bad! This camera does not have real spot metering in the true sense of the word. Its more like heavily centre-weighted. The Topcon Unirex had the same type of thing. The real problem with this camera is it needs a mercury battery which is no longer available.
They are nice cameras though. David, Yeah, it's not a true spot 6 degree, I think? It's certainly helpful though; I've never been a big fan of averaging.
I just can't understand how the sensitivity of it could be moved from the center of the finder to somewhere off-center. I would have thought that the selenium cell would have been rather fixed. As for the battery, it'll be replaced with an alkaline and then re-calibrated. I was under the impression this was a pretty common procedure. We'll see how it turns out, I suppose! For users of classic rangefinder cameras Olympus, Canon, Minolta you can purchase an adapter to permit the correct voltage from readily available consumer batteries.

What camera would afford him the use of his famous Zone System in a compact and back-saving weight? The 35 SP was preceded by the lesser-known 35 LE auto only and 35 LC manual only released in and , respectively. It was followed by the 35 SPn in which added a battery check light and some cosmetic changes and finally the 35 UC in which had even more cosmetic changes. All of these cameras share the same fantastic lens: the G. The cameras that followed like the Olympus RC and Olympus RD , although much smaller in size, did not come close to the 35 SP in terms of lens quality or features.

The Apollo command and service module CSM was one of two principal components of the United States Apollo spacecraft , used for the Apollo program , which landed astronauts on the Moon between and The CSM functioned as a mother ship , which carried a crew of three astronauts and the second Apollo spacecraft, the Apollo Lunar Module , to lunar orbit, and brought the astronauts back to Earth. It consisted of two parts: the conical command module, a cabin that housed the crew and carried equipment needed for atmospheric reentry and splashdown ; and the cylindrical service module which provided propulsion, electrical power and storage for various consumables required during a mission. An umbilical connection transferred power and consumables between the two modules. Just before reentry of the command module on the return home, the umbilical connection was severed and the service module was cast off and allowed to burn up in the atmosphere. It was initially designed to land on the Moon atop a landing rocket stage and return all three astronauts on a direct-ascent mission, which would not use a separate lunar module, and thus had no provisions for docking with another spacecraft.
The Olympus 35 SP holds a SP ecial and somewhat privileged status in my pretty modest camera collection. For around seven months it has been almost the only 35mm camera I have used the main exception is the point and shoot, Nikon L35AF. The 35 SP really has an immense amount going for it and it more than pulls its weight in the world of rangefinders, let alone fixed lens rangefinders. I came to own an Olympus 35 SP after trying a couple of Yashica fixed lens rangefinders.
