'A trip down the LRT line with the Olympus Pen EE-S and a roll of expired film - Part I'

Had the opportunity of taking The Olympus Pen EE-S and a roll of expired color negative film on a trip down the LRT lime some times ago. That was the first time I was using the camera and it was a real point and shoot experience for me.

Results were of course nowhere near expectation, with blurry and underexposed captures, washed-out colors, grain and all.

To get the images to where they are as shown, they were was uploaded for post-processing on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) and a couple of the images was edited with almost all the tools available, including Auto Tone Correction, Tilt Adjustment, Crop, Shading Compensation, Tone Curve, Brightness & Contrast, Gamma, Color Balance, Hue & Saturation, Color Filter, Sharpness & Blur, Unsharp Mask, and Noise Reduction.

The Olympus Pen EE-S (1962) was the second model, after the Pen EE in 1961, in the series of amateur EE model produced by Olympus. A true point and shoot camera with a fully automatic exposure and fixed focusing, these cameras are easily recognized by the selenium meter window around the lens. The EE model became a driving force behind the popularity of the Pen series cameras from Olympus.
