    The Trip 35 is a wonderful camera, and one of the most successful models ever produced. As such, it deserves a more accurate description than the one given above. I posted both an accurate description of the camera and repair instructions at a while back at:

    http://www.thermojetstove.com/Trip35

    The comment about the diamond shaped aperture having no affect on image quality is correct. This only influences "bokeh".

    Also, care should be taken with the shutter speed modification. If the meter is working, this will cause incorrect exposure when the light level wants to set the shutter speed to 1/40.

    The Olympus Trip 35 was my first 35mm camera. I still have it. The lens is amazing good and the camera is well build.

    Regards,

    It was the first camera I ever used and the camera that fueled my interest in photography, if any camera can claim to be a 'Volkscamera' it's the Trip. I bought one for my son and was surprised by the sharp lens and fairly accurate auto meter.

    Another fan of the Trip 35 here, I have had several (at my peak I think I owned 4), but am now down to one (with the hard ERC which I managed to find at a flea market in Helsinki).
    They are an absolute delight to use, it was my carry-everywhere camera, took it to America, took one to Finland, shot many rolls through them (http://flickr.com/photos/tomswanboro...7600169108826/).

    I highly recommend one of these to anyone.

    Dear tomswanboroughnilson,

    Hear, hear!
    I have just received another set of prints of a film put through my "newer" Trip35. Boy, is the exposure spot on and are the prints sharp! You would imagine they were taken with a very expensive DSLR and Lens, yet they were taken with an $8-00 junkshop Trip35, which probably hasn't had a CLA in it's life.
