Now I know it's Spring but I'm going to show you lots of photographs I took last Autumn using my Olympus Pen FT half frame single lens reflex that I loaded with Kodak Ektar. These sky photographs continue another ongoing theme of mine.
These are altocumulus clouds. I used a slow shutter speed here to give a sense of movement.
This camera and its system took the 35mm frame and divided it in two making a 24mm X 18mm frame. The system was designed and built in the 1960s. The lenses were small and light and performed beautifully. I have the FT with TTL metering and the FV without metering. I also have two of the more sophisticated viewfinder Pens- a Pen D2 and a D3. The latter was loaded with B&W film and I have yet to process that. The half frame system declined for a variety of reasons. Kodak wouldn't mount slides, processing colour prints was awkward for the labs and full frame gear got smaller (initiated by Olympus!). These are taken on the 60mm. I still love this gear.
