'Analog Diary - Nostalgic moments with the Olympus Pen EE-S and a roll of expired film'

Olympus Pen EE-S
Moments brings me back to my favorite hangout where I frequent when selling used and vintage 35mm film cameras, manual focus lenses, and other film camera accessories. It was a fast-food joint down the mall located a ten minutes drive from where I live. It has been a while since, and sad to say, the joint is no more, it's lease being taken over by another franchise.

Those were the days, enjoyed my time there, and with the half-frame Pen EE-S, a fixed focus point-and-shoot camera with a 28mm f/3.5 lens with a shutter speed of 1/60 second, images to reminisce the moments. These images were tweaked on the Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) for Auto Tone Correction, Tone Curve, Brightness & Contrast, Hue & Saturation, Sharpness & Blur, and Noise Reduction.

The Pen EE-S is a bit of a gem, and a true classic, easily recognized by the selenium meter window around the lens. It is well built, feels solid and robust, fits snugly in the palm of your hand, and has a very quiet shutter that is hardly audible beyond a short distance. Shooting and working both the film advance and the shutter release with one hand is as easy as eating a pie.
