A Demi-God Amongst Cameras!

I recently purchased a Canon Demi from eBay and took it out for its first shooting trip at the beginning of July.

The Demi was Canon’s answer to the Olympus Pen f. The Pen f and Demi are half-frame cameras, they take two shots per exposure on a roll of 35mm film.

Therefore a roll of 24 exposures gets you 48 photos and 36 gets you 72!

My Demi is an original model (dating from 1963) and it appears to be in good condition but the back door seal is powdery (which is normal for these cameras and cameras of this age).

I wasn’t sure if it would work so took it for a spin around the farms and fields where I live.

It’s a little odd shooting in portrait orientation, but given that we take most shots on our phones these days; it felt oddly familiar!

It has taken nearly a month for Analogue Wonderland to return my photo’s but when they finally arrived I was really pleased with the results.

There appears to be some sticking of the film in the camera as there is some overlap of shots on the roll, But in the main, the photos came out really well.

The lead image and this diptych are straight from the camera.
