For my birthday this year, I had another camera added to my humble collection because, really, there are few things that make me happier. I was told I could pick any camera of my choice (even ridiculously expensive ones like a Hasselblad but goodness knows I am not ready for that, haha!) so for a while I debated between a Zeiss Ikon Taxona (which makes square photographs on 35mm film), a Canon Demi EE17 (a manual half-frame camera and so pretty) and an Olympus Mju II. I ultimately decided on the Mju II because of its convenience and quality – both of which I’ve never enjoyed simultaneously working with SLRs or toy cameras.
I believe I was introduced to this camera by superhero pho-Tony and then greatly inspired by Inês’ recent photographs. Hopefully you can tell by this test roll that I’m having a lot of fun with this tiny thing, it is definitely delivering the convenience and quality I am looking for. There are a few problems I can name off the top of my head but I will leave it for short review which will be added to the Camera Guide after I shoot a few more rolls with it. Happy Monday!
