At The Beginning, Olympus Pen EE.S

'Five frames with the Olympus Pen EE-S, looking back at the beginning where it started'

I was rummaging through the image archive and came across a batch of images, taken with the Olympus Pen EE that has been overlooked as part of my earlier blog posts. The images were at the beginning of my return to analog photography and my renewed interest in vintage cameras.

Olympus Pen EE-S

The Olympus Pen EE.S (1962), was the second iteration of the Olympus Pen EE (1959) series which was to become the world's first 35mm half-frame camera produced for the mass market. The two cameras were later updated to the Pen EE (EL) and Pen EE.S (EL), which came with take-up spools that have been redesigned for easier film loading.

While the original Pen EE is fitted with a fixed-focus Zuiko 28mm F3.5 lens the later, as mentioned, comes with the wider and brighter Zuiko 30mm F2.8.

While I have since moved on other cameras make and models, including film autofocus compacts and film SLR's with interchangeable lenses, and the often enough to image tests with vintage manual focus lens mounted on the digital MFT (Micro Four Thirds), it is always a refreshing thought to be able to look back and reminisce the nostalgic vintage images that these cameras are capable of.
