A few days ago I posted this image taken with my LX3 digital camera. Here is the same view taken at the same time with my Olympus Infinity AF-1, a point-and-shoot from 1986. This was taken on Fujicolor Press 800.

For an Old-Time Snack

Established in 1925, the Lexington Candy Shop is one of the few traditional New York luncheonettes remaining, a place where the lemonade is still freshly squeezed. I’ve been going here since 1979 when the original owner still ran it and very little has changed. It is now run by his son. Lexington Avenue @ 83rd Street, New York City.

The Infinity

I recently found this in a thrift shop for the price of a roll of film. It included a working battery and a roll of expired (1994) Kodak Gold 400 film. I could not leave it in the store :-) The Olympus AF-1 (Infinity in the US) of 1986 was the world's first weatherproof fully automatic compact camera, earning it the nickname "Nurepika" (wet flash) in Japan. It was the first in the Olympus AF series. I believe it was the last Olympus compact to have the Zuiko name on the lens, and from the first tries it seems to be very sharp. * Lens: 35mm f/2.8 * Minimum focus distance of 75cm. * Autofocus. * Auto-exposure. * Auto-flash. * Focus lock button. Other features: DX decoding, motordrive, XA-style lens protection, and a shutter speed range of 1/30-1/750 seconds.
