    Hi

    I have a lovely Olympus Trip 35 that I use a lot. I takes great pictures, but I miss the data on it.
    What is the:
    • Flash Sync Speed
    • The range of shutter speeds

    Greetings Morten

    It's a long time since I had a Trip 35, but I'm sure it's got a leaf shutter, so X sync (for electronic flash) should be good at all speeds. I think but am not sure that the Trip had a 2-bladed combined aperture/shutter, if so it will work on a program from about 1/500 at f16 to 1/30 or so at f2.8, with no user settings possible.

    Thanks.

    I found out that when shooting automatic the shutter is either 1/40 or 1/200 and the aperture is from f/2.8-f/22. Manual (flash) it is 1/40 and aperture f/2.8-f/22.

    I never liked that slow shutter speed in manual mode, so I took mine apart and sped it up.
