Olympus Trip 35

The Olympus Trip 35 is the first camera I owned. And now I have another one.

They're a little marvel really. Compact, durable, totally automatic (can be a blessing and a curse, of course), and does not need batteries as the metering gets power from light.

I was pleased with the photos I took with it to test, and this was only very cheap expired Kodak film.

I'll be using it more, and may keep it as a regular backup.

The view through the viewfinder. Note that you can see the current settings in the little window below.

And taken with the camera:

Not taken by me. But, I rather like it.

Can I help you?

The tonal range of even a cheap 35mm film camera like this does rival the most expensive modern digital camera. (These photographs are all unedited.)
