For Jennifer Nicole Wells’s One Word Photo Challenge: Camera

Here I am lurking behind my first camera, an Olympus Pen-EE (which sadly no longer works) dating from the 1960s (mine was second hand before you ask!). The manufacturer claimed that it was “the World’s only camera that gives such perfect pictures with such clarity, and with such complete automation”  basically you could only change the ASA. I suppose that with the automatic exposure function (the “Electric Eye”) it was quite advanced for its time. At least as it was half frame, I would get 72 pictures instead of 36 and although most of them were not “perfect” I did get a lot of enjoyment out of this little camera.
