A few weeks ago, my girlfriend and I went to a second hand market in Barcelona to see if we could find a nice film camera to add to our collection, which is getting pretty big by now.
We saw lots of them. And the one that caught our attention was a tiny old and in excellent condition Olympus-Pen. I really don’t know how old this camera is (20 years old? 30? Who knows). But it looks as if it was new. And it works. And the funny thing is that again, it had a film roll inside that I will develop one of these days to see what images it hides. It is the second time that I buy a second hand camera that still has a film roll inside.
Anyway, we are just testing the camera and shooting our first roll. You can get 72 images out of a 36 exposure film roll due to the fact that it only uses half the frame every time you shoot. That’s funny. I really didn’t have any idea about this kind of “compact” film cameras.
It will probably takes us ages to finish a 36 exposure film, but as soon as it gets developed, I will post some of the images here.
The camera looks beautiful. I’m shooting the first roll of film and everything seems to be working perfectly.
