Olympus Trip 35 35mm camera

Regular price $200.00

This is a lovely, perfectly working Olympus Trip 35 camera. It was recently serviced so its shutter, exposure and focus accuracy are excellent. We tested the camera with film and it delivered excellent results. 

The Trip 35 is a classic design and one of the best selling cameras of the film era with a nearly unheard of 17 year production run. It features: zone focusing; battery-free (!) auto exposure; a manual mode for aperture priority and flash shooting; and a superb 40mm f2.8 Zuiko lens.

Also, the see photos for included focus test shots for 1m, 1.5m, and 3m (please disregard the dust and scratches which weren't caused by the camera but rather our dropping the negatives on the ground--oops!)

The Trip 35 was endorsed by David Bailey, here's one of the ads he did for Olympus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lryK6w5kP1M

Condition notes
This Trip 35 is in very good aesthetic condition (see photos; the most noteworthy flaw is a serial number engraving on the bottom) and is working perfectly. We serviced the aperture mechanism and calibrated the zone focusing using an autocollimator. The original lens cap is also included.
