Olympus Pen EE-2

Another go at the Olympus Pen EE-2 for me. Last summer I tried it after all the reviews I read about this fixed focus Halfframe camera. This camera has plenty of advantages comparing it with other cameras that were produced in the late sixties early seventies. One of the major advances of the camera is the lightmeter that is accurate and doesn’t require any batteries, since it uses a selenium Cell. Another advantage of this camera is the fixed focus system, that makes it fast to use. There is no need for estimating how far away your object is, so no mistakes that things are out of focus.
This camera is the smallest, most lightweight halffame camera I ever used and it is very economical because it produces 72 photos on a regular 35mm film roll 🙂
So, if you’re short on pecuniae and in need for your daily picture shot, go and get it!

but to me however, altough I love the size, the build quality and the lightmeter of this piece of perfection, I am not keeping it. That’s because I prefer the wider lens of my Ricoh Caddy at this moment, that also seem sharper to me.


About this blog

I really enjoy playing with old cameras to see what they’re capable of. In this blog is share my experiences. Hopefully this will inspire you to start playing too!
