A new reader asks about the Olympus Trip 35!


Hi guys and girls!

Hope you are doing well? Amongst 100s of requests, I have had an email from the following person asking for advice about the Olympus Trip 35, a camera that is particularly close to my heart!

Here is what the email says:

Hello Jak!

 

I have recently gotten a Trip 35 and stumbled upon your WordPress blog while looking for advise and while I haven’t had the chance to shoot as much as you yet, I have a concern which I hope you could help me with!
 
You mentioned in a post that films with ISO 800 to 1600 would work well with the Trip, and as I have gotten my hands on the discontinued Fujifilm Natura 1600, I was wondering what would be the best way to make use of this film and if there are any recommendations for the settings before I shoot, or even tips of how I can fully make use of the Trip 35 for daily use!
 
Would be really glad to get some advise from you as I have not used a film camera in years.
 
Kind Regards
Crystal
So in reply to you, Crystal, here is a link to my posts on this blog talking about using ISO 800 or ISO 1600 films with an Olympus Trip camera   >> https://filmcamera999.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/by-popular-demand-more-about-what-the-olympus-trip-can-do-and-how-to-do-it/
I am also offering brand new Olympus Trip covering kits and also 2 fully refurbished Olympus Trip 35 cameras with these new covers fitted, too….take a look >> https://twitter.com/scarlett99998
Once again, Crystal, thanks for your email and feel free to contact me again if you need any advice!

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 years...my first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money back...no arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!
