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

Note: the example photo of the clapperboard (giving the camera serial number and film type/developer used) shows an apparent light leak because we accidentally shot this on the leader (beginning of the roll, which is of course exposed to light during loading). This camera has fresh light seals and no light leaks. 

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.

Condition notes
This Trip 35 is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos) and is working perfectly. As mentioned, it was film tested. In addition, we serviced the aperture mechanism and calibrated the zone focusing using an autocollimator.
