Classic Cameras Friday! – Olympus Pen 1959

Hey There;

I want to show you the first Japanese Half Frame Camera, here a few facts:

  1. Made half-frame popular
  2. $29.50 with f3.5 lens in 1960 ($217 in 2010 dollars)
  3. The Pen was the first really popular half-frame camera, and, for a while, anyway, it made half-frame popular, too. But eventually Kodak’s refusal to mount half-frame slides doomed the format.


Cesar Out!

Happy 4th Of July Weekend!
