    Olympus OM-2 Spot/Program metering issue

    Hi Folks! I have a question regarding my Olympus OM-2 Spot/Program: Normally when in auto mode, the meter goes all the way up to 1000/1 when you overexpose and makes a beeping sound, warning that you're overexposing.

    Canon AE-1 Program Oil Issue

    Hello, So I tried following one of the many tutorials to fix the AE-1 "squeak" by trying to lubricate the gears that flip the mirror and it seems like the oil I used "slowed" down the mirror along with some other things. I don't have a comparison video but a 1/1000 shutter speed should be a lot...
