Single frame… Adventures with half-frame, part 1

Olympus PEN EE-2, – O.O.D. Kodak 400 rated at ISO 200, converted to black & white in Lightroom

A few months ago I picked up my first half-frame camera in the shape of an Olympus PEN EE-2. It’s a gorgeous little beast, simple, elegant and tiny.

The above shot is from the first roll I put through it, an incredibly out of date roll of Kodak 400 colour negative film that’s been lurking in my fridge for ages.

The image quality offered by the small 18x24mm negative and fixed focus lens are certainly not helped by dull conditions and very out of date film but I’m quite pleased with the results even so…
