Olympus OM2sp – Rollei Superpan #1


Had my Olympus OM2sp serviced at Luton Camera Repair last month as the film wind on was misbehaving. They did a great job with it, replacing all the foam light seals, checking the electronics, and re tensioning the shutter. The camera felt really good so I took with me on a walk to the local arboretum. It was a really hot humid day, but there were some nice clouds about.

Path To The Arboretum 

Most of the images were taken using 24mm Zuiko, and 50mm Zuiko lenses, using a Red or R72 Infrared filter

Through The leaves

The film has given the Fir a bit of a surreal look.

Step Up

I’ll post some more shots from this roll over the next few days.

    Ok – so how long were the exposures, generally? I would think they must have been several seconds. I want to try this again. I tried a while back with some Ilford SFX 200 – but my exposures were off. Have you ever used the Ilford?

      It was a really bright day so the exposures were not too bad, 1/4 – 1 sec, used a tripod for most of them with the self timer. Have used SXF a few times with a Red No.25 filter, got some nice results. The Rollei Superpan is a really thin based film and can be very difficult to load on the spiral, Ilford is much easier.

    Thanks for sharing these. I’ve enjoyed following your posts and looking at the fine results that you get from film. I have to admit that what intrigued me the most this time was the fact that you took your camera to Luton Camera Repair. I didn’t realize that you were so close to my old home town of Dunstable.

      Thank you, it’s a bit of a labour of love for me with the Rollei film. Used good old Royal Mail to send the camera off, I live about 70 miles away from Luton, but good camera repairers are few and far between, and these specialise in Olympus.
