These images were made with my recently acquired Olympus PEN EE and expired Kodak Gold 100 film. I ask my lab to develop only; no cut, no print; then I capture digitally with a makeshift film stage, a flash and diffuser, and my Canon 40D with the 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. The PEN is a half frame camera; I capture two half frames in each shot with the Canon. Some I left together, I thought they made nice diptychs that way. I could, of course, rotate my macro lens 90 degrees, and get more pixels on each image; perhaps for the next roll.
It's a fun little camera to use, built like a tank and quite heavy for it's size. I'm hoping for finer results with some non-expired film ( I currently have a roll of Foma b&w in it, which is also expired, but only by a little), but I thought these shots had a certain charm to them.

I've finished scanning in my last two rolls of Fuji Neopan 1600.
I shot them in my newly acquired Nikon FE, with a Nikkor 50mm f/1.,4 lens.
The design of the FE is near perfect, and I am really enjoying this camera.
I learned after I shot these two rolls that Fuji has discontinued production of Neopan 1600. I had hoped to run a lot more of that stuff through this camera. Oh well.
