The Olympus Trip 35 was my first 35mm camera (1973) because my Lubitel TLR died on too many films..........
Still working that Trip:
For difficult lighting conditions, the Trip has exposure lock: just depress the shutter button halfway. It's really a small ingenious camera, too bad the meter on mine is dead.
I bought one for my son to take on a school 'trip'. I think it is a great anywhere camera, for taking to the beach or keeping in your car glovebox etc
No batteries means just load with film and forget-always ready
I did a little review here;
Olympus Trip Review
I been shooting a little bit again with my Olympus Trip 35. Better results after getting to
know it better.
I recommend to take a look at the full size also. I love this cam :-)
Very cool, I once lucked out on a black Trip 35, even though I'm an Oly diehard, I was till not expecting such clarity from a camera that wasn't even designed for anything beyond casual snapshots.
Your shots are very well exposed, and looks like you're a good distance-guesser

in the early 80s,i remember refusing a trip as a present,cos i thought it looked old fashioned.
i think i ended up with a 110 camera.what an idiot.
last year got one on ebay for 6 pounds,put some agfa scala and kodachrome in and i could not believe the lens quality and exposure accuracy.
these cameras are ebays greatest bargains.they are tough and it's solar powered.
all for the price of a few rolls of film.
I got one of these from ebay for 1 cent about a year ago and it started my obsession with Olympus cameras.
It's always surprising how well these humble little Olympus Trip's perform.
I now have 3 of them and like leng them out to friends who want to try film photography.
Have fun with your Trip
