    Guess the camera competition


    Every other week we'll be posting a picture of a camera on the AP forum and Facebook page -

    All you have to do is guess the camera make and model, plus you can have ten guesses.

    It's just for fun so why not give it a try, good luck.

    Oooh, oooh, one I can have a go at, especially as I missed the Ful-vue!

    It's an Olympus Pen, and I think it's an EE2 model.

    Probably not. Think it may be an EE. EE2s were normally (always?) black leatherette covered.

    My bid would probably be for it to be a Pen EE s, also known as a Pen EES. However, it is not impossible that the military drab coverings crept on to other models, especially as back then, Japanese makers use to release onto the home market some time before selling overseas.

    Lurking in the back of my mind is also the possible existence of a Pen E. The chronological order would then be something like Pen E, Pen EE, Pen EES, Pen EE2.

    Yes it's an Olympus PEN EE2. I picked one up a couple of years ago for a few pounds and have used it many times. It's a great half frame camera giving 48 exposures on a 24 film, so great value for money! Probably my favourite compact film camera.

    Well done to Ian Grimwood on our Facebook page who guessed the correct make and model of this camera, his name was picked at random.

    Well, I shall allow myself half a pat on the back as the Forum member who got it right first time. :) It could have been an EE S though, as they shared the same covering.
