    Next week's issue contains a review of these lovely little cameras. I look forward to reading about them.Many on here have used them or still have them?

    Personally I think half frame is a complete waste of time. God knows 35mm is small enough without halving the bloody thing. Doubtless half frame may well have it's fans but I certainly am not one of them!

    Checking out a book on Nikon history today I saw that even they produced a special order half frame a few years ago.
    I wonder how many of those Nick has got? perhaps even Geoff has a few as they are so rare.

    Geoff will tell you not to swear. Me? The only half-frame I own is a Pen EE-2, and I've not used it for years. I must admit that I've thought of whacking a roll of Provia 100F through it to see just what it can do.

    Well, I'm pleased to say Nick has one more half-frame than I have, although I nearly bought a Canon Demi a few months ago.

    I have two versions of the Pen EE and strangely enough I was working them tonight. The lenses are as good as you can get on such a camera and I remember the first time I used one was the summer of 1963, it took two weeks in Ireland and a whole summer of hitchhiking to finish that 72 exposure film!

    And that was at ten frames per second during the good weather.

    I've got a Pen EE3 in my pocket that I've used quite a lot recently. I've taken about half a dozen shots on the way to work this morning. It makes a great notebook or for collecting shots of things. I love it. It's a joy to use, the results are suprisingly good and I find it fun.

    I've also got a Pen FT but that doesn't get so much use because the meter is all to cock and it's now got two stroke winding.

    I want more half frame cameras. I suppose they'll be a bit more competition from them after the article.

    There is a surge of buying after one the AP reviews, but all of my Pens were bought at car boot sales, these and Polaroids seem to abound at these events!

    You may be pleasantly surprised - there are probably more pixels in a half-frame slide than in an EOS 10D picture!

    Why do people with expensive cameras say you don't need one to take good photographs

    Have you ever tried to wind on 10 frames per second MANUALLY? (in any weather)

    Big Will wouldn't know a classic if he fell over one!
