    Hello friends,

    this set is from a recent trip into NYC, taken on an Olympus OM-2n with some funky iso50-200 redscale film for the most part shot at iso25!

    these are straight scans of some prints I had done, with no artificial colours/flavours etc!

    hope you like it, cos I sure had fun taking it!:)

    No comments here? You're brave to take classic camera for such a short stay in NYC, but it was well worth. Those pictures got very nice mood. After reading reviews I chose the view from 30 Rock as well :smile: I missed those statues at 3rd picture, where are they located?

    the statues are right on the way into the ferry at Battery Park :)

    I thoroughly enjoyed using the om-2n in nyc and the 24mm 2.8 was perfect for me. loved it! I plan to use this as my main camera but now I'm back home it'll be mostly black and white work.

    Thanks for this, Kosta. I had an OM-2p for 20? years. Great of the reasons I went with the E-P1,2,3 was the 'nostalgia' - same size/feel as the OM's. I ended up selling the OM to get a Canon G2, and reenter photography. Unfortunately, I also sold my OM 50 f1.2 :eek:

    Glad you're still enjoying the camera!

    The prints looks as if the film got over-heated. I like #2 ... nice flavor and effect.

    it was during the NYC heat wave ;)

    (it's red-scale film which was shot at various ISO - in this case 1-2 were at about ISO50, and 3 at ISO25. I love the tones you can get out of it at low ISO. at 12 it is a beauty)

    Thanks for the comments guys, am loving the om-2n!
