Stuck in a car park in Gaia, 20 June 2022

Waiting in a car park in Gaia. There was little else to do apart from bringing  out the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and the full spectrum Lumix DMC-TZ8 for some industrial infrared. 

A day out in Porto, 20 June 2022

Out for a lovely day in Porto with the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit.  After a wet start it was perfect for some #urban and #streetphotography, or just for being a tourist.  #body, #camera, #cameras, #digital, #digitalcamera, #epl1, #mirrorless, #microfourthirds, #olympus, #olympuspen, #shittydigital, #broken, #urban, #Porto, #building, #fisheye, #kit, #lens, #lomography,Continue reading “A day out in Porto, 20 June 2022”

Lo-Fi: Taking the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit to Aveiro, 18 June 2022

After a test run yesterday it was time to take the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit to Aveiro.  My experiment was short-lived. After four or five nice photos, just enough to whet my appetite, the camera died. Thankfully it was just the battery and I’m all charged up for a possibleContinue reading “Lo-Fi: Taking the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit to Aveiro, 18 June 2022”

Lo-Fi: A test run with the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit, 17 June 2022

A test run in the woods with the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit.  First attempts at in-camera multiple exposures and image stacking (and one failed microclick ‘panorama’).

Lo-Fi: The broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit

Who on earth would buy a broken mirrorless camera? I picked up this Olympus Pen E-PL1 from Kamerastore with broken image stabilization. I wasn’t looking for anything perfect but I recently discovered the Lomography Experimental Lens kit and it looks like it might be an interesting project. I’m thinking freelensing and a possible future conversionContinue reading “Lo-Fi: The broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit”

Out with the Fujifilm XPS3 camera from the digital Outlet Box, 03 June 2022

I’ve been so wrapped up with taking digital infrared photographs with the converted Lumix DMC-TZ8 that the other cameras in the Outlet Box have been ignored.  There were a load of really nice cameras in the Outlet Box, so let’s take a look at some of the others. Today it’s time to flex the musclesContinue reading “Out with the Fujifilm XPS3 camera from the digital Outlet Box, 03 June 2022”

Going digital, another Kamerastore Outlet Box

Oops, I did it again! After my experience with the vintage camera Kamerastore outlet box that is (still) an ongoing project I was excited to find that they had released some more boxes. There were over 100 boxes of analogue and digital cameras, and although there were lots of film camera boxes that were appealingContinue reading “Going digital, another Kamerastore Outlet Box”
