Way before the Golden-Half and Diana Mini, there were the little known Olympus half-frame cameras- the Olympus Pen EE models.
I went to Manila in The Philippines recently. After reading about a mini “camera street” in Hidalgo Street (near Quiapo Church), I decided to head down to see if there were any treasures to be found. And to my surprise, I found this baby stood out from the other vintage cameras! It had a bit of scratches but I already fell in love! I begged and bargained with the seller and finally managed to get a good price of US$25!
Back in Singapore, I loaded the baby with ISO100 film and shot on sunny days. All I needed from this simple camera is to set the ASA (ranges from 25-400), wind the film on, then pressed the shutter. The results are crisp, fresh and a whopping 72 pictures from the trusty Olympus Pen EE3!
There's nothing more satisfying than taking fantastic photos with a camera that you built yourself. If you've always wanted to impress your friends with your mad DIY skills, pick up a Konstruktor Camera Kit and show them what you've got! It's also a cool way to get them into Lomography, because as you build the camera you'll discover how analogue photography works. Oh, and the Konstruktor takes gorgeous photos, too - check out the gallery and see what we mean!
