It was fun to be able to see and compose a photo in square ratio (6×6 film) directly in the “viewfinder”. Things appear in different orders, in some ways, more… geometrical to my eyes. Yes, you can crop anything (2:3 or 3:4) to square ratio later in post-process, but it would be different, trust me!
When the OM 50mm f1.8 arrived, since the lens is so compact, I decided to try a small “project”: I brought the lens on E620 with me everyday to shoot in 6×6 ratio. Only the “square” composition is shown in my E620’s LCD screen (LiveView mode). Rotate the ring to focus. Recompose. And shoot.
The photos here are not so fantastic. The lens is not as sharp as my digital ZD lens. But I hope they reflect my experience of manual focusing & shooting 6×6 to you 🙂
