    35mm half frame users?

    Just a quick message to say hi. I just joined APUG.
    So....as the title says, any half frame fans here? I have formats from 16mm submini to 6X9 folders but always keep a Olympus Pen S in the pocket. Haven't been without a 18X24mm camera since I purchased my first Pen in 1972. Would be nice to here from other half frame users.

    This is the 35mm forum, not the 17.5 forum.

    Jnanian, yeah, the Pen F/FT are great. I have a Pen F and 3 lens setup. Makes a great travel set. If you are talking about Leica M mount to Pen F adapters, well there is no space to make an adapter that will allow the lens to focus to infinity. The Pen F flange to film distance is 28.95mm and Leica M is 27.8mm. The Pen F will take a variety of SLR lenses but there are no current adapters being made and so adapters for Olympus OM, Nikon F, and M42 mounts command very high prices.

    fstop, didn't know there was a 17.5 forum. Still finding my way around the site. On my profile under shooter: 'Multi Format' would have been more accurate.

    There isn't a 17.5 forum, f-stop was kidding.

    Welcome to APUG. I haven't used half frame since I borrowed a school camera in the 1970s, but I liked the Olympus Pen then, and really appreciated its influence on the full frame Olympus OM cameras I have used since then.

    Sometimes used for half frame photography; sometimes used for half-asses photography.
