A total white elephant if you ask me (not that I anticipate being asked). Total waste of money in terms of development and manufacturing tooling costs.
I would be gob-smacked if it came to light...

Re: Olympus Pen EES 2 Instruction Leaflet

Thanks John, but I'm a Pen FT user and don't actually have the EES 2, so it would be of academic interest only. However if the OP was looking for a good home for the camera, I'd be quite interested.

Re: Professional Photographers Certificates.

What about Canon LTMs?

The definition of a professional photographer is someone who charges money for their snaps, thus making a living, using the income to pay the mortgage etc.

Re: eBay here I come...

I think it would help break the effect of digital being too clean, almost clinical in appearance. Of course if your purpose is for recording absolute likeness, a sort of perfect reality (as far as...

Re: A scene from the movie Kodachrome

The class of people who knock film are part of a collective who don't use film.

On the other hand, those who use film are also on the digital Venn, so they know what they're talking about when...

Re: A scene from the movie Kodachrome

Ah, the curse of digital, damn it! ��

With regard to the film-movie "Kodachrome", there is a way to display the nuanced differences by shooting in film, then digitising for general consumption....

Re: Exposure Latitude

Nah, the limit for me would be rolling my own from 400' lengths of XX (also available in 100' cans on eBay). Interestingly, Eastman 5222 was used for the opening scenes in the James Bond film CASINO...

Thanks, made a note.

Halation is a bonus, just love the glow it produces. In fact I have been reading far and wide seeking a film stock with the crapiest anti-halation layer known. I'm led to understand that CineStill...

As for exposure, everyone should...
