Week 12 was the week in which I tested some cameras again. A while ago, while I was making pinhole shots, a man approached me and asked me what I was doing. We ended up having a conversation about photography, and he told me he had some gear at home. He diddn’t know what to do with it, and would I be interested? I said yes, we exchanged email addresses and a few days later I was at his house, picking up two cameras and a few lenses. The Olympus AZ-330 he gave me is already tested. But I still had his Canon EOS 650 lying around, together with the lenses it came with.Since I still had to test an Olympus XA for Monica, I decided to load up the Canon with Fomapan 100 and take it with me as well.
I had shot some pics with the Olympus already, but the test roll wasn’t done yet. So I took both cameras with me to the Wilhelminapier in Rotterdam and walked around a bit, while taking pictures. The Wilhelminapier is the place where the Fotomuseum and Hotel New York are located. It is also the place where modern skyscrapers have been built lately. From the Wilhelminapier I walked to the Deliplein to have a look at the old warehouses. I was happy to see the cameras both work. That means Monica will have her XA and I’m going to take the Canon with me on holiday.
