PEN F (Half Frame)

Flying a bit of a kite I'm sure, but I'm on the look out for a half frame Olympus PEN.
Anyone have one they would like sell?

Re: PEN F (Half Frame)

Lovely, jewel-like cameras.
A friend of mine has a couple in immaculate condition plus several lenses. I doubt heíll want to sell, but heís getting on a bit and has shifted some other gear recently - let me know if you canít find a good one for a fair price, and Iíll ask him.

Yes, please ask him Mark. Much obliged.

The reason for my interest in the Pen F is to increase the NOISE to SIGNAL, ratio. I want grain to clearly show. Tri X 400 pushed to 3200 on a half frame should do it nicely.

Why not just shoot regular 35mm with a wider lens than usual and crop it? Not nearly as much fun, I grant you, but easy to achieve the desired result.

Thanks John, that's a fair idea, but I do not like cropping. I compose to fill the frame. To be selective would play with my mind and I'd be all over the place. Plus I like the idea of 72 shots on a roll and a pocketable camera when I just want to take take a camera as a just in case I see something. The mundane minimalistic shot can come to life when film grain is the star of the show.
