Vivitar PN2011

This is another point and shoot Vivitar camera. I’m not sure when it was made, but it’s name suggests it is this year’s model! How fitting! This camera multitasks panorama and standard shots with the flip of a switch. So it’s sort of a IC101 and the IC100 combined. It’s a fixed focus, fixed aperture, fixed shutter speed camera. All the Vivitars seem to be F/8 and 1/125th shutter, and the PN2011  is no exception. Using 100 film, I tried to only use it in sunlight.

I found that the camera didn’t produce shots as crisp as the IC101 Panorama. Some of the pictures are a bit fuzzy, particularly noticeable in the shots of people. Maybe it’s just this roll, but the IC101 has taken more consistently impressive photos. With the exception of a few, the shots didn’t “wow” me as much. It doesn’t have the magic! Maybe I’ll pull it out again and give it another try.

I used Kodak Elitechrome EB100 film in it. Why am I using this film so often? Because I bought a pack of 40 for really cheap on eBay. Like, $2 each. Cheeeap.
