Week 5 and yet another color film, and a bit of a favorite combo in camera and film, or at least I like them both a lot.
The PRO 400H is such a great film to use, and it works well when you push it a stop or two.

The Olympus 35 EC is a viewfinder camera, with a super sharp 42mm 2.8 lens, I found mine in a thrift shop for almost no money aka very cheap, I didn’t know if it was working or not, but for the price I was willing to take a change. And it turned out that the camera works perfectly.

Originally it used two RM640 mercury batteries, course you can’t get those anymore, so I just use two PX640 instead and then just lower the ISO setting a little to compensate for the higher voltage, and that works out just fine.

I got quite a few ok photos this week – as I mostly do, when I use the 35 EC – we are not talking masterpieces here, doubt I’ll get many of those with this project, but just photos that are well exposed and where the composition isn’t too bad.
And that by the way is the criteria for a photo to end up in this project’s gallery.
