Olympus OM101/(OM88) #3

A few more images from the Olympus OM101 and 35-70mm zoom, on Rollei Retro 400s film. They were taken in April at Oakham, Rutland. Was so lucky with the weather it was really bright, and almost warm.

Olympus OM101/(OM88) #2

A few more images from the Olympus OM101, these were taken at Stamford, Lincolnshire on Rollei Retro 400s film. The weather was really bright and this brought out a bit of the infrared sensitivity of the film, a red filter would have shown it more, next time.

Olympus OM101/(OM88) #1

Another camera for the collection, well two actually ! I always fancied one of these even though they don’t seem to get mentioned very much. This one came with a 35-70mm zoom, manual adapter, and Olympus T18 flash all for £9.99p. The only thing missing was a 50mm standard lens, so when another camera came up with a 50mm I put in a bid for £9.00p and won it, a lens on it’s own was more expensive. The camera is pretty much auto everything with little information in the viewfinder, add the manual adapter though and you can set the aperture and or shutter speed. Focusing is by a wheel at the back of the camera which I found very intuitive.

I loaded the camera with Rollei Retro 400s, a film I hadn’t tried before, the camera is DX only but goes from 50 – 3200 asa, and the shutter runs from 2 – 1/2000 of a second. I took the camera with me on my walks and a couple of train trips.

Most of the shots were taken using an Orange filter, and I developed the film in Kodak D76.
