There's a chance I might get my dad's old one, which was actually his dads, apparently it should be in my uncles loft.

I'd be over the moon with that

Just watched the add with James hunt

I remember the Olympus Trip adverts with David Bailey.
Very funny.
Great camera in its day.

I don't think I'd use a larger format, just the size and cost per shot would mean I'd have to plan days around using it, which would likely see it stay in a cupboard once the novelty had worn off.
My dad had an Olympus trip years back, might be nice to get one of them

Iíve never developed at home and donít even have the kit to do it anymore. I always had the facility at work and could make use of their recovery systems even if I was using my own developer. If you are talking tiny amounts then it probably makes more sense to send it off for dev and scan rather then buying tanks and chemistry. You could try the instant coffee method but you will still be flushing silver down the drain.

There are plenty of places to send film for processing, if you go for Ilford XP2 it can be done in an hour at Snappy Snaps as it is a B+W film that is processed in C41 chemistry. It is not the nicest film by a long way so bear that in mind.

I only run the odd bit of film for tests these day so use XP2 for that. With the 35RC I expect Iíll use FP4 or TriX and send it off somewhere. Medium format is worth a look if youíre going for film, a TLR from Rollei or Minolta can be had fairly cheaply and are an absolute joy to shoot with. Bag a cheap one then sell it on eBay once youíre done and you could even make a profit to help cover your film costs.

I do love the idea of getting an old film camera, an om1 or similar, but I really wouldn't have a clue what to do with the film. Small bits I've read on developing look like an ecological disaster zone with the chemicals involved.

That site does look useful

I like the idea of removing the hotshot, self timer and engravings. I might have to practice on a spare top plate first. I really loved the look of the Leica Monochrome Stealth Edition so I would like to emulate that with matte black paint.

What direction are you taking - carpy camo or maybe a nice bit of 70's Formica?

Used Lens

This place, that Ken posted on the thread in General a few days ago, is great. I've already bought an Olympus 35RC that I've been promising myself for years. My father had one and it was the first camera I ever used other than point and shoots.

Now to customise it a bit.

I like that beetle shot, I find something similar occasionally but with a iridescent blue green colour but it's difficult to get an angle to bring out the colours, usually just looking black

Had a play with a 70-200 f4 the other day, focus worked really well so I'm back to looking for a 150-600, too late for the peregrines now as the chicks have moved on but hey ho

Might even make a few quid in trading a couple of lenses by the look of it.

Olympus announced that a longer macro lens is under development yesterday, I don't know what to think of that, I'd be all over a 100mm macro but I suspect it won't happen

Should get my kit back from Dorset this week, I'll have the flash power to set up the cross polarised rig then

Popped into wex earlier, bet its a brilliant shop normally but it's more like a trip to argos with the covid precautions

I found quite a difference for flight when you get into it, particularly with busy backgrounds.

I can't get on with back button focus, it just seems like a waste of a button. I can't see the advantage over just half pressing

Focus limit is on the lens(es) for me not the camera, so that's one I have to remember, and often forget!
I've a few things common to all.
Back button focus is the main one, although I'm considering taking that off the macro settings, it's not necessary for that at all just habit now, but it makes contorting for macro angles a lot more painful!

It'll probably change but so far I've got
C1 for birds
C2 for macro
C3 for fishing catch shots (this will probably change as I think the em5 with the 17mm 1.8 will be my fishing camera most of the time)

Most general settings are really quick to change, but I've assigned buttons to different functions in each mode, so the dof preview button will do focus limiter for birds, focus peaking for macro and intervalometer for catch shots as an example.

I could do this on the em5 but it was much more complicated as you replaced things like the scene modes on the dial, and even then I was never quite sure what mode I was in
