The OM-30 was the third model in Olympus' popular OM series, released in 1983, 4 years after the original and well-loved OM-10! The OM-30 is basically an OM10 with manual shutter speed ring built-in, and a few other advances. These include a PC-sync flash connection, [LED] warnings in the viewfinder, built-in manual metering, and provision for attaching a steady grip. It didn't replace the OM10, but was available alongside it. Like the OM10, the OM30 also had built in light meter.
A selection dial on the top left hand side of the camera allowed for selection of:
Check - This is a battery check, when the camera is powered properly it will emit a long "beep" sound.
Auto - Aperture Priority mode
Off - Camera off
Manual - Camera will be on manual mode. A built in manual shutter speed selector is located next to the lens.

The kit comes with a great starter zoom lens, the Zuiko 35-105mm F3.5-4.5 -- a hugely versatile lens that is suitable for a range of photography, such as portraits, landscape, travel photography or street photography. The zoom allows you to capture and experiment with different focal lengths from wide 35mm to tele lens at 105mm, making it a great starter lens especially for the beginner!
The OM-30 is powered by battery and requires 2 x LR44 (A76) small coin batteries that can be easily found at your local supermarket or office supply shop!
