Olympus iS-100

This camera is very similar to another Olympus I have tried. And maybe I should have read that review before putting a film in this camera.

I think I got this one in a job lot and as I was a bit bored so thought I would try it out. Big mistake, I hated it, hated, hated it. I found it cumbersome, pointless and quite honestly…ugly. Though I did enjoy my morning out in Leeds.

I decided to take the camera to Lower Briggate as I don’t think I have ever walked around there before. BUT every time I took the camera out to use, I felt like a complete idiot. Some cameras are cool and feel cool to use. This one just felt nerdy, embarrassing and awkward. I would take a shot and quickly put it away. Once I got the film developed I found a few photos from a recent trip to Edinburgh. Obviously I thought the same on that trip, forgot about it and put it away.

So here is the one and only roll I will be taking with this camera.

To be fair, the photos came out quite well and when I checked online, there are great examples all over this site. You can find more information about this camera on this great website. They came to the same conclusion, a capable camera with a face only a mother can love.

  1. Think I am guilty where this one is concerned. Seems to take to great photos but from what I recall the person taking the photos has little to no control. Making it essentially a large point and shoot

    1. Actually if you read the link at the end, the great review, you will see it does have a lot of options like aperture control. But it would mean using it lots more to get to know them…I am not willing to do that at the moment.
