And now, MY Oly Pen EE2 test roll, LOL.

When you want less than 24mm x 36mm.

And now, MY Oly Pen EE2 test roll, LOL.

Postby Santiago Montenegro » Mon Sep 25, 2017 12:26 pm

And my only roll I might add, eons ago. I hated having 72 shots, hated it with a passion. But since it seems to be a fad going on...

The girls are all grown up, and the Pen languishes in a shelf. I actually have two of them, but the second one I've never tested.

The more the merrier, Santiago. Half frame is good at events where you can get a lot of subjects in a short period of time. Otherwise it takes forever to finish a roll, unless you do a project where you take two or three photos a day for one month.

Santiago - nice shots with the Pen.

I know what you mean about half-frame. When I test a camera, I'll sometime roll a short roll of 20. Even then, shooting 40 shots takes a while.

I've got one word to say about using film up in a half-frame camera: panoramas!

The photos that you posted, Santiago, speak well for the photographer and the camera. Yes, it's hard to wait for the long roll to be finished; I often find strange subjects towards the end of some of the rolls I shoot-- but even that gets difficult because I don't have any pets and I can't do many more of my shoes.

I want to turn my 1/2 frame into a 360 camera but by one shot at a time. I think I will try it out and try not to overlap them too much.

If we all saw the world the same no one would need a camera.

I think that it is more of a fad because of the 4/turds digital thing.

Nice portraits, Santiago, given that you hated half-frame with passion!

To illustrate what I said earlier about using up film in a half-frame camera, here is a five image stitch of the now closed Virginia Forge facility just south of Buchanan, VA on US-11.
