Olympus OM-2 spot/program and Olympus OM Zuiko Auto-W 2.8/28mm arrived …

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Today I got a new box with two nice tools included.

An Olympus OM-2 spot/program to complete my OM range and an Olympus OM Zuiko Auto-W 2.8/28mm to complete my OM Zuiko lens range.

The next weeks a roll of film will find its way into that nice little body. I’m just looking after my Yashica Mat 124G to shoot a roll and then this beauty can go through the parcour. The 28mm lens is one of my preferred focal lenghts.

As soon as ready, I’ll post some pics on my Flickr– or 500px-page.

Enjoy 😉

Blossom Impressions …

Monday, August 28th, 2017

The last days I had some fun in the garden, as lots of flowers are giving their very best to make this time an amazing colourful one. I was lucky shooting three cameras/lens combinations.

Sonnenhut / Echinacea

Echinacea / Sonnenhut, shot with Pentax LX, Pentax-A SMC 2.8/28mm, Agfa Vista 400.

Herbst-Anemone / Anemone hupehensis

Anemone hupehensis / Herbst-Anemone shot with Fuji X100s with the nice 2.0/23mm onboard Fujinon lens.

Hibiskus / Hibiscus

Hibiscus / Hibiskus shot with Olympus OM-D E-M1, Voigtländer Skoparex 2.0/40mm, Focar C.

During the last years I see, that especially the Hibiscus is one of my favourite motivs.
The full series – and a lot more images – can be found on my Flickr page.

Enjoy 😉

Pentax LX with SMC Pentax-A 2.8/28mm reused …

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Last weekend I was on a short trip to Frankfurt and I wondered what camera to join me.

Soon it was clear that my Fuji X100s was the one to go … but I wanted to have someting more analog 😉

So it finally was my Pentax LX with a SMC Pentax-A 2.8/28mm lens who was coming along.

As I still had an opened roll of Agfa Vista 400 to complete (5 frames already shot in Ireland), I loaded that film and fired six frames.

As this was the first time to use the LX, I was curious, how this pretty baby would work – optically it is looking brand new.

Two days later … what to say … it was a pleasure handling that camera. The single point to complain was the on/off switch sitting around the shutter release button. As this switch is rotated to lock the shutter button, it is moving quite loose, so that one can accidentially move it by putting the camera in or out of the bag.

As we had two sunny days, I used mainly zone focussing at f/11 and Automatic Mode and it was … easy going.

The film is currently on processing and when back, I’ll post some pictures on my Flickr– or 500px-page.

Enjoy 😉
