Half Frame Diptychs

Olympus Pen EES

First test roll from my recently acquired Olympus Pen EES, half frame 35mm film camera.
Although I only paid $20 for this beauty, it is almost in mint condition. Everything, including the selenium meter is working well.

The Olympus Pen EES was launched in 1962. The camera has a 30mm f/2.8 zone focusing lens, equivalent to 45mm on a full-frame camera. It only has two shutter speeds; 1/40 and 1/200 second. Exposure is fully automatic, controlled by the selenium meter around the lens.
No batteries needed.

  1. Great results from that little half-frame. What good luck to get one with a working meter. I bought an EE model new in 1961; it seemed amazing that it could effortlessly produce such nice pictures.
