    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.

    I have a little Penti I and always carry it with me when other cameras would be to big, heavy or expensive.
    It's rather primitive and needs film in SL-canisters (very hard to find and you have to load them yourself from bulk rolls), but other than that it's pretty nice. The lens is a 3 element Domiplan 30mm/3,5 and the shutter goes from B to 1/125. But don't be fooled by these specs... Stopped down to f/8, it can produce pictures that can be enlarged to 8x12" and still look decently sharp. Of course you have to deal with massive grain, but that's one of the reasons, I love the smaller formats. With the slow shutter, the most used film is Polypan F at 50ASA.

    I'd love to have a Pen F, but that's just a dream for the day I have too much money to spare...

    I also built a half-frame 120 pinhole camera once... it took 24 3x6cm panoramic pictures on one film. That's one pretty cool format and I really wonder, why none of the "real camera makers" have ever thought of that.
