    A friend recently gave me a box of "old junk film" cameras. Most were just that but there were a couple of jewels in the box.
    One is a Penn EE 1/2 frame. It's as nearly new as an old camera can be and appears to work perfectly, so I'm anxious to run some film through it.
    The only problem seems to be a lack of available filters. It will accept 22.5 mm over the lens only or 43.5 mm over the lens and meter. The latter would be my preference but I've been unable to locate any. Lots of 43 mm step up etc. but no 43.5 mm.
    Anyone know of a source?
    Thanks in advance.

    Go to http://www.tripman.co.uk/. It's a site about the Olympus Trip 35, and in their webshop there's a pretty good selection of 43.5mm filters, even some original Olympus brand ones (if you care about that sort of thing). I must also congratulate you on your find, it is a wonderful camera.
