In The Garden #1
My first In The Garden session with the Olympus Pen-FT, fitted with an Olympus F.Zuiko 1:1.8 38mm lens. The camera works OK, except for the exposure meter that was about 7-stops out of whack. Exposure for the first roll of shots was then by trial and error, based on the best of my Sunny-16 knowledge.

The Pen-FT (1966) follows the introduction of the Pen F (1963), comes with a single stroke film advance, a built-in self-timer, and open aperture TTL (through the lens) exposure metering, among others. The TTL metering uses a semi-silvered mirror that split a portion of the incoming light to the metering cell, and the rest to the viewfinder. This result is a viewfinder that was dimmer than that of the original Pen F.
