Please elaborate. Did not the plain 2 fill in with ambient if the flash was
insufficient? I think the 2n could be forced to do that. Both protocols have
Beginner shooting film.
The main difference between these two bodies is the System Flash support. The OM-2 supports TTL/OTF flash control with
both the Quick Auto 310 flash (with Accessory Shoe 2) and the T series flashes (with Accessory Shoe 3). The OM-2n
supports TTL/OTF flash control only with the T series flashes and only accepts Accessory Shoe 4. The OM-2n adds a flash
ready / flash ok LED and an exposure compensation flag in the viewfinder, and automatic flash synchro speed setting. The
longest guaranteed reproducable exposure time on the OM-2n is 2 minutes, independent on ASA speed, while the OM-2 has a
long exposure limit that varies with ASA speed (1 minute with 100 ASA). The OM-2n automatically sets the shutter speed
at 1/60 sec with a T flash. The OM-2 however will keep the shutter open when the flash does not give enough output,
using available light OTF as an addition to the light produced by the flash. Some people think this is an advantage, but
it is not without reason Olympus changed this in the OM-2n: the electromagnetic shutter will quickly drain the battery
when it stays open for extended periods.
