Week 62a - Vivitar PN2011


Vivitar PN2011, originally uploaded by pho-Tony.
There are numerous versions of this cheap little "panoramic" camera, this one was £1.25 in a charity shop a couple of weeks ago. There is a switchable mask, which cuts down the frames size to 36mm x 13mm (from 36mm x 24mm) to give a panoramic format.
There is a single speed shutter and a fixed aperture, so the camera needs good light. I loaded it with a roll of Kodak ISO 3200 black and white film to allow me to use it in duller conditions, and/or to hold an orange filter in front of the lens to accentuate blue skies (when we get them!).
