'Five frames, images from the Nokia Asha 300 cropped to the 2.7:1 image aspect ratio'

Part II of my outing to the Farmer's Market with the Nokia Asha 300, with images cropped to the 2.7:1 image aspect ratio. The crop might not be the true Xpan image but the image aspect ratio is.

The visit was quiet a while ago, just before the movements during the COVID-19 constraints were about to be imposed. Images were uploaded at 1080 x 400 pixels and you can view it at the resolution by clicking on the image to have it displayed in the lightbox.

'Five frames, looking up the archive for glimpses of glorious past'

The COVID-19 constraint has really put a damper on external photographic activities you can get involved in, and motivated with. While some of you might get the jitters with interest wavering, that should not be the case for most of us.


As for the motivator to keep me going, I have two areas of interest that are currently keeping me occupied. First is digging up the archive for images still unpublished or having missed the cue, and secondly trying out the post-processing app which I have been deferring from looking through for so long.


This batch is from a collection of images shot with the Olympus Pen-FT, with its accompanying F.Zuiko Auto-S 38mm F1.8, from about 5 years ago that has remained unpublished despite my efforts to have all of them posted previously. At long last, they do have their chance now of been published and to be looked at, applauded, and appreciated, if they so deserve.

Sights and Scenes (Part III), Konica C35 EF

'Five frames, sights and scenes (Part III) on a walkabout in the city with the Konica C35 EF'

Last in the series of five images with the Konica C35 EF, one of the cameras mentioned to have a very capable lens and very good shooting habits. The camera, nicknamed 'Pikkari' in Japan, was the world’s first 35mm compact camera with built-in flash, and the first plastic-bodied C35 that was introduced after the earlier Konica C35 series.


The C35 EF is available in two iterations, with the latter incorporating a self-timer located to the left lens a new speed of 1/250th of a second, added to the 1/60 and 1/125 from the older model, and an orange plastic flash release knob (the old one came with a black plastic one) and the focusing symbols on the lens focusing barrel are framed. Otherwise, the two cameras were mechanically similar.


The C35 EF's light meter requires a 1.3V PX675 mercury battery. As a replacement, a 1.5V button cell should work almost as well. Flash requires two AA alkaline batteries, while NiMh rechargeable batteries are not advised.

The Covid-19 constraint does have its way of pushing the photographer into other aspects and challenges that the genre can be viewed from.
