    I'd never even heard of half-fram until I saw this thread! Those Olympus Pen models sounds incredible and definitely something I would want to play around with. Are they incredibly expensive or something that the average person (like me) can afford to get into?

    They run a range, but pretty affordable. An ee can be had for 30.00 while an ft will run near 300.00. Deals can be found. Love half frame, been shooting them for years.

    Yet another half frame shooter chiming in. I have a Pen EE for the portrait-oriented half frame shots and a Yashica Samurai X4 for the landscape-oriented shots. I like them both, but honestly, the Pen gets the most use.

    Apart from 35mm half frame, I also have a 120 half frame camera; my Bronica RF645 is actually a half frame 6x9 camera.

    Wow, that's what I get in return for my feeble attempt at a joke.
    Interesting! I had never heard of half frame 120 before. GAS attack coming up!

    Gee, I never though of the 6.45 format as being hal frame 6x9. I've been shooting half frame 6x9 for some decades with my Bronica ETRS. I seem to learn something new every time I hit this site.

    I have had a number of half frame cameras over the years but the only two I have retained is a Konica AA35, which I bought new in the 1980's, and a Yashica Samurai half frame SLR, which I got second-hand. I rarely use them but must unearth them & give them another go. There are still labs in the UK who will print from half-frame and even a couple who will scan to CD.

    The Konica AA-35 is a nice little camera as it will easily slide into a shirt pocket. Autoexposure is good on it and built in flash. Amazing they got so much in such a think package. Only weak point is the battery door that tends to breakoff.
