I know this is an odd question, but I'm wondering if there is a specific camera brand (looking back at older film SLRs) that has a dedicated hotshoe with entirely different terminal positions (except for the central terminal) than Nikon. In other words, a DEDICATED flash unit of another brand that would be safe to use on a Nikon because only the center terminal would line up. I hope my question makes sense!

Anyone know about Olympus flash units for the OM-series of film SLRs in particular? I couldn't tell from pics online.

An undeniable paradox: To think that there is any such thing as an absolute rule is at worst naïve, and at best, shortsighted. There is no such thing as an always-true, all context- or situation-salient, absolute rule that always holds true…including this one!
