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!

Cesar Here!.... Information Technology run thru my vains from 8 - 5. When not at the Office I drive a Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Team Edition and a nice Photog Paraphernalia back pack (LowePro Dry Zone 200), inside ===> Nikon Cameras and lenses (Nikon D700, Nikon D300, Nikon F100) and many other tools, of course. Photography and Adventure are ingredients in my day to day life mixed with motorcycles and outdoor activities; and I do want to share My Experiences here with You.
