I met up with a few friends to shoot an abandoned silt processor, and the ruins of Franklin, Washington, a former mining town.
I was shooting with an Olympus StylusEpic zoom 80, and one of Todd’s 6×6 pinhole cameras.
The Stylus does indeed have a wonderful sharp lens. I never use the zoom feature, and would be fine if it didn’t have it. I shot with this camera once before, and it was great. This time, there was a round light leak in the corners, which I read could be due to dirt on the rubber gasket on the door of the camera. It’s not a foam seal, its a soft-ish rubber. I cleaned it. Let’s see how it does in the future. Otherwise, its a great compact camera.
Here are the pinhole photos:
Although it was rainy later, it was a fun day. And like every excursion, it was a great chance to shoot some film and do something different.
(Afterwards we stopped by an antique store where I bought a FED 5b).

classic olympus PS images. GAS syndrome continues…I owned a 5B and its construction was not up to par especially after owning a Leica…..
When it comes to light leaks black gaffers tape is your friend.
Very cool location. Glad to see the pinholes with world pin hole coming up this weekend.
