Olympus Pen EE

Say “Hi” to my latest camera: an Olympus Pen EE that I picked up for €5 on a flea market in Wallonia. It looks to be in excellent working condition and I just put a roll of film in there.

The Pen series of cameras are half-width, allowing 72 exposures on a normal 135-36 roll of film. The circle around the lens is not mere 1960’s decoration; it is actually a selenium meter setting the aperture of the shot. Otherwise it is just a point-and-shoot camera with a 28mm f/3.5 lens.
