This is a large range-finder camera from around 1965. It has a fast lens, and unlike some similar models, has full manual control in addition to the automatic exposure system. I didn't even try putting a battery in, as there was evidence of previous battery leakage, and I'm quite happy to use manual mode.
I found a roll of expired Jessops PAN400 SX black and white film, which expired in 2008, so I thought I'd give that a go.

I used another of my extensive stash of expired slide film this week, which was cross-processed, explaining the odd colours here. The subject is a large metal spider which hangs beneath a railway arch, through which a foot bridge goes over the river Don. At this time of year, the sun is low in the sky, and directly illuminates the spider, bringing it out of its customary gloom.

The EM is a small, light SLR firmly aimed at the amateur market, it has automatic aperture priority exposue, with no manual overide, other than the option to set a single shutter speed, 1/90th sec, if there are no batteries.
This one has an "E" series 28mm wide angle lens on it. I've loaded it with Ilford HP5 Plus black and white negative film.

I've had this one a while, I can't remember where it came from. The electronics appear to be dead, but it can be used in full manual mode, and all seems to function as it should. The lens is probably the entry level for this system, as it would seem that there were fater lenses made.
I've put some Kodak Gold colour negative film in it (expired 2009).
