Olympus 35 RC Sample Shots

Update: I have just noticed that the images in this post are missing. Please bare with me as I restore them.

Yesterday I loaded up my new Olympus 35 RC (see the previous post) with some Fuji Acros 100 and went for a walk around the neighborhood. (Actually I went to get milk at the supermarket but I took my camera with me.)

Last night, I developed the film (Rodinal 1+50, 11.5 mins) and here are some of the results.

Overall, I am happy with the camera. It exposed pretty well and the lens was pretty sharp (hard to see that in these low resolution shots). It also worked well in “Flashmatic” mode when I attached my cheap Achiever electronic flash to it.

I do wish I bought an ND filter at the photo fair yesterday though. The thread is 43.5mm which may be difficult to find and with an f/2.8 lens, shooting film such as Tri-X on sunny California days may turn out to be problematic.

While walking around, I felt the camera would be an effective street photography camera. It is smaller than my Voigtländer Bessa R4A and the shutter is definitely quieter.

All in all, I have to say I am happy with my purchase.
