    Infinity focus is adjusted to 1/100th of a mm. Once you unscrew the lens (even if position is marked) infinity focus will be wrong when you reassemble (though depth of field will pull focus in). Was infinity focus correct when you took it apart? A focus collimator is needed to reset lens to proper infinity focus. John

    it's quite easy to collimate for inifinity on a trip 35. just place a ground glass on film plane or scotch magic transparent tape and adjust the front element till it all comes into focus with the distance ring set for the mountains..

    enjoy.

    Trip 35 repair

    Thanks for this great set of instructions. I just dug out my Trip 35. If it does need a repair your instructions will offer me much needed guidance!

    Is that an Olympus FTL I see in your profile? Neato.

    There are a couple of FTL bodies and a set of lenses in my collection. They are not a bad camera. While certainly not as innovative as the Pen's or OM's, they were on par with the competition of the time. Olympus did advertise the feature of a screw mount lens with full aperture metering. AFAIK, that was a first.

    Thanks for that. It may be useful... If my hands will stop shaking then seizing up, when I try to do delicate jobs. 😐
