My name is Matt Evans I’m an IT professional working in the film industry and a part time photographer based in Wellington, NZ. I’ve dabbled with analog photography for the last two decades and last year found myself in a digital photography slump. So I decided that for 2019 I will shoot mostly with film which has reignited my photographic passion. This is my first roll with the Olympus 35 RC.

This is the second rangefinder I acquired late last year and I’ve been super impressed with it. It’s easy to use, the Zuiko lens is sharp as a tack and focusing is easy despite a relatively small focus patch. It’s been my carry everywhere camera due to its small size and pocket-ability.
