film addict


The Holga’s aren’t even here yet and I’m already thinking about what 35mm film camera to get to replace the broken OM10.

I think I’ve decided on a couple of old school cheapies – no reason to get flashy with my ambitions as all I really want is to recreate the vintage feel of photos from when I were a lad. Well, that and have some fun with it.

Soooooo, you ask with baited breath, what have I decided on?

Firstly, an Olympus Trip 35 – there’s a place that refurbishes and retrims them – awesome.

Secondly – an Olympus Pen – these are 1/2 frame cameras, meaning it captures 2 images side by side on a single 35mm image – so you can get 48 or 72 images per roll of film. Similar in some ways to the Trip

So, all I need to do is to get over the reeling $600 gas bill that came this morning *faints* and I’ll pick up a couple – it’ll be easier to develop the films than the 120 Holga ones too.
