Camera bodies …

I put some more shelves up to accommodate a growing collection below. Some of these are my late Mum’s cameras now on display, some of my old cameras, tip-shop finds, and a Olympus Trip 35 gifted from a friend – a gift I am very grateful for and will treasure. It was his grandfather’s camera and he wanted it to go to a good home, I am absolutely honoured.

Growing collection

I also just bought a second-hand Oly 70-300mm II lens – with an EM10 Mark II attached. I didn’t really want the camera but the owner is travelling overseas, so I did him a favour rather than split it. It was a good price, all in near mint condition.

I will either sell the EM10 … or … I’ve started considering doing a full-spectrum conversion myself for infrared photography. More on this kit in a future post – thanks for visiting 😀

  1. A full spectrum conversion is great fun. I’ve done this with my Lumix DMC-TZ8 point and shoot and can’t get enough infrared, though the Olympus conversion looks … daunting. If you crack on with it, a cheaper alternative to the IR pass filter is a cut to size piece of exposed colour film. Never tried it but am told it works.

    1. Thanks for the tip! I stumbled upon your post HERE and you are the one who got me thinking about the conversion 😀 Some great photos on your blog. I might try converting one of my other point and shoots first, but it can’t be any harder than building a drone from scratch 😉 Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Aren’t they cool! Woolly miniatures 😉
      The collection recently grew – again, I found many of the silver point and shoot digital cameras at the tip shop for 1-2 $ each in very good condition, who could resist right?

  2. An E-M10 MKII ! I just put one up for sale, but reading this I’m starting to think that conversion is a great idea, maybe I’ll keep it after all – Very interested in that future post 🙂 Beautiful photos and a nice collection !

    1. Thanks Marc, I’ll probably list this one first but with the lens it was practically a bonus for me. Lovely little camera, it’s my first EM10, a little smaller than the Pen_F and EM5 II, feels like a fully featured toy! Definitely no slouch in the imaging department though.

    1. Thank you, Trojan can be a bit of a bully, especially when it comes to feeding time, so I always sneak Snowy in some extra chaff 😉
      The camera collection has grown somewhat lately with some bargain finds, most of them aren’t worth much but there’s a few special ones – the Kodak DC40 was one of the first consumer digital camera ever released!
