Al momento stai visualizzando HALF FRAME


In this gallery I tried for the first time an half frame camera.  One of my photographer friend introduced me his Pen EE and talked to me about this half frame system. I was interested about it so I started to look around for an half frame camera. The market has some interesting model and looking here and there I found a Ricoh Auto Half SE2 camera. This is a nice camera that works in auto mode (there is the opportunity to control few parameters). I found a roll of Fuji superia 400 in a camera I bought (unfortunately it was new roll) so I decided to test it with this camera (I wanted a color film with 400 ISO to be able to test the camera in different situation even when the available light is not enough).

Except some frames that didn’t came out, the final result was pretty interesting, and the film (I think is not available anymore) is a good one! The camera is able to set up automatically aperture and shutter speed, and the particular half frame size let to put together 2 photos that sometime fitting so well each other.

I was not able to remember which frame was next to which, especially because I used this camera for several days (27 exposure for 2), and is it fun when scanning the film see the results, and what kind of coupled frame comes out.

This is a selection of the photos I took. Enjoy it and Stay Click!!
