The Manual Exposure Adapter was provided as an option and with it, it is possible to set shutter speeds from 1 sec. to 1/1000 sec. When photographing fast moving subjects, when there is a possibility of camera shake, or when you want to capture the subject in its natural tones no matter what the illumination may be, this accessory proved to be very useful and you may guess, that it was also the most popular accessory (except the flash) to the OM-10. With an electronic flash T32 or T20 and the Manual Adapter attached on, the flash unit automatically synchronizes the shutter speed of the camera. True or not but there is a warning in the camera instruction book which says: "If an electronic flash other than the T32 or T20 is used with the Manual Adapter, sometimes the shutter is not released at the speed you set on the Adapter due to the noise of the flash." Anyway, like it´s "big brothers" the single number OM cameras the two digit OM-10 has proved to be a reliable instrument even in the hands of the serious amateur.
