You’ve heard of the Olympus XA and XA-2. You’ve heard of the Olympus MJU II or Stylus Epic. But have you heard of the 1994 Olympus LT-1? It was a premium, very stylish compact aimed at upmarket travellers. Kinda like a MJU I clad in leather! It’s my new favourite pocket camera, find out why in episode 4!
In the show’s longest episode to date (how do they keep getting longer?) I also give an update on my Emulsive Secret Santa present, I talk about the cameras I’ve been shooting with in January 2019, the podcasts I’ve been listening to, and I give a shout out to some lovely conversations I’ve had with people recently. Don’t forget to subscribe!
