    I just bought an Olympus Pen FT. Printing black and white is no problem; I just use my normal 35mm negative carrier and crop with the easel...flare is probably increased. I'm still deciding whether it's better to put the frame in the middle of the negative carrier or off to the one side.

    I'm not sure what to do about color. Are there any labs that can print color negative 1/2 frame negatives? I could probably get the film developed at any minilab but I only have a flatbed scanner which is marginal even for 35mm, and I don't do color darkroom printing yet.

    Almost every mini-lab scans film, shouldn't be a problem.

    I just figured their scanners were set up to scan regular 35mm. Although if they can set it up to scan 2 frames at one go, I can just cut the resulting prints in half with scissors.
