Olympus OM metering unique ??

Hi everyone ,

I own an Olympus OM4. A feature that camera has is the ability to close the shutter when enough light has reached the film plane while shooting.

Thus when I shoot a difficult macro subject , I just put the camera in Auto , and with a flash that is NOT connected in any way to the camera body , I start to fire small bursts at the subject at different angles. When the exposure is judjed OK by the camera (which can take for example 20 flashes and 4 - 5 minutes of time) the camera closes the shutter and the picture is finished. I get Perfect results every time !

What I nned to know.... Is there any other camera except Olympus which can meter the subject while the shutter is open and close the curtain accordingly ?

Thank you for your time
