Why are people all over the photographic world fussing about theOlympus Trip 35?

One of the reasons is the quality of results it produces and the ease of use.
And funnily enough, you don’t need to spend $$$$$ to own one either!

Hardened professional photographers who use state-of-the-art digital
cameras in their working lives, can still be seen with one of these in their kit bags. Let’s talk a little more about this little gem.

The Olympus Trip 35 was first marketed in the hippy-whippy days of the 1960s…..1968 to be precise. This was the time when the top class SLR icons were being released, such as the Nikon, Pentax, Minolta, Canon and others.

So, yes, it is a simple camera, but what sets it apart from the crowd is the fact that it is so deceptively simple to use.

But not only this – one look at the quality of the photographs it can produce, will convince you for life that this is one camera that you should never, ever be without. In normal use, all you do is set it to the ‘A’ position and the built-in selenium cell metering does the rest. Just wind the film on and press the shutter, and you’re done. By the way, the meter doesn’t need batteries! Amazing! 

There are no speeds to fuss about, as it has only two of those, 1/40s and 1/120s, and all are decided upon by the metering….you don’t have to set anything. It even has a low-light cut-off system,
which shows a red flag in the viewfinder and locks the shutter, should you try and take a shot when the light is too low – this, incidentally is a foolproof way of ensuring you do not try and take a photograph with the lens cap on! 

The list of features doesn’t end here…it also has parallax error marks inside the viewfinder which will prevent people’s heads being chopped off if you take portrait shots!

Another unique feature…the camera has a tiny window visible through the viewfinder that lets you see what setting your lens is set to: it’s called a Judas window for some reason!  You can also use electronic flash by mounting your flashgun to the top or by connecting it to the front using the lead from your flash.

I have fully refurbished the camera myself so you can be assured of a top quality product that will probably out live you! Brand new red crocodile effect coverings fitted, and new light seals also.

The shutter, metering film wind and rewind has all been checked using a test film.

Presented in a non-standard camera pouch.

A beautiful present!

    I like that it measures light compensating whatever filter you put on the lens
    not sure if there’s a tread for proper attachment though

    • hi and thanks for commenting! much appreciated! yes, there is a proper thread on the front of the lens, which is 43.5mm size….i usually use my Trip with either green filter or orange one…they both give astounding results with monochrome film!
