thought it would be a good idea to shoot some street at night, which I'm terrible at so I figured why not challenge myself. Also, it was White Night here in Melbourne, so met up with Andrew and we attended some of White Night's various locations, which was lovely.
Join me as I review the Olympus Pen-F and shoot the suburbs! I look after my daughter in the morning on weekends to give my wife a well earned break. To combat the boredom of spending time with a screaming toddler and to avoid rethinking my life decisions I picked up this camera and have been shooting it solidly since purchasing it.
We wanted to know how a modern, mid-range DSLR would stack up against a 1990s era film point and shoot at the same location, shooting the same things. So, we took both cameras to an abandoned former school and orphanage in Ballarat to see how they'd go! The results are surprising!
The little plastic fantastic Olympus OZ-10 or AF-10 Mini kinda looks like an overweight Mju, with a 35mm f4.5 lens rather than the well known 35mm f3.5. To be perfectly honest? It's kinda a piece of junk but at the same time it's also kinda heroic.
This short project was shot over a few weekends at the famous and during the summer months often crowded Torquay Surf Beach. It examines this beautiful location's appeal to local, tourist and weekender alike through exposing the surf and sun culture mixed with documenting the crowds on the beach street style. It was shot entirely on a plastic fantastic Olympus 35mm point and shoot loaded with cheap Fujifilm Superia XTRA 400 film.
I recently received a little known camera from Japan, the Olympus OZ10 point and shoot. Continuing my obsession with point and shoot film cameras I picked this little plastic fantastic up for the $AUD equivalent of a Red Bull and a meat pie. It’s little beauty and a true hidden gem of the Olympus compact line of the mid-1990s
