I’ll write more about this camera later when I get around to it under the All My Cameras category, but in the meantime I just wanted to put up this example. The camera is a 1970s Olympus SPN, a simple rangefinder camera with a fixed 40mm f/1.7 lens. The film was Fuji Neopan 400 processed in Xtol 1:2. I’m very impressed with the results this camera is capable of. You can probably pick one up around the $100 range & it would be a good walk around rangefinder camera for anyone who doesn’t have the dollars for a Leica, or who wants to test the waters a bit before making a bigger commitment. This was shot around f/5.6
