A new photo every day for a year in 2023

Picture No 18

In yesterdays Blog picture the camera I featured was an Olympus Pen E-P1 digital camera.

The camera I’m featuring today is an Olympus Pen F 35mm single-lens reflex film camera produced between 1963 and 1966. The camera is a half-frame camera, Half frame means that the camera uses an 18×24 mm vertical portrait format, producing twice the pictures on a roll of 135 film as the regular 36×24 mm format. So a roll of 36 exposure film would in fact give you 72 exposures !.

Yesterdays picture of my Olympus Pen E-P1 was the first Micro Four Thirds digital camera made by Olympus based on the original Olympus Pen F 35mm single-lens reflex film camera.

Why is this camera so very special, it belonged to my late Father-in-Law Brian Scull.

In the summer I am intending to put a film through the camera and I’ll share my results.
