Olympus Ecru

Since I’m a bit of an Olympus camera fangirl (I have the E-P1 as well as two old Oly SLRs and a Trip-35), Josh bought me this beautiful collectors’ Olympus Ecru for our anniversary. A limited edition from 1991, it was designed as a stylish concept camera for the Japanese market, but it also happens to have a lovely little lens and take quite gorgeous photos. I took it to Barcelona on a test run and already succeeding in scuffing it up a bit :/ but I’m very pleased with the sharp, bright pictures it produced:

You can’t tell, but i’m trying to ape the stupid lobster sculpture in the background

It came with a cute Japanese/English manual as well.

I might start collecting limited-edition Olympus cameras; next on my list would be the pretty little leather-bound LT-1 and the startlingly unusual O-Product.


Beautiful and functional, the best kind of collectors’ item, no?
