A special episode of Cool Camera Corner featuring Oli Trainor a photographer and classic camera collector from Cambridge, UK.

We take a look at range finders – in particular the Leica M6 and the 1955 Zorki and compare them to another small 35mm camera with interchangeable lenses: The Olympus OM-1.

It has often been said that when Yoshihisa Maitani designed the OM-1 it was so close in dimensions to the Leica that you could fit a Leica into an OM case. We test that rumour to see if it’s true.
