Olympus [mju:] II zoom 115 review

This is a review of the Olympus [mju:] II zoom 115, a 35mm point and shoot compact camera with auto focus, automatic exposure and a 3 zone meter. Olympus [mju:] II zoom Images My Olympus [mju:] II zoom 115 Camera I have to say this is an unusual camera for me to buy. I don’t normally bother with the compact, point and shoot end of the 35mm market, but I saw this in a charity shop and had a vague […]

Voigtlander Dynamatic II rangefinder camera

The Voigtlander Dynamatic II  camera is a 35mm, rangefinder, auto-exposure camera made by Voigtlander in the early 1960’s.

Olympus Pen EE-2 half frame camera

This Olympus Pen EE-2 is a pocket size, half frame, 35mm camera which I’ve owned for quite a long time but only recently got round to looking at.

I remember him using the Instamatic as my Dad used his Boots Beirette and how we used to view the resulting colour slides when they returned from processing a week or so later.

Chinon CE-4 35mm slr camera

This Chinon CE-4 camera is one I found in a charity shop on a recent trip to visit family in Loughborough. It was in a large box of other  photographic paraphernalia and was priced at £7 so, although the shutter was locked, I bought it because of two reasons. First the lens is probably worth £7 and secondly when I turned the rewind knob I could feel tension so there was obviously still a film in it! I have had […]
