This is a very nice, perfectly working Olympus Trip 35 camera. Its 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.

Condition notes

This Trip 35 is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos) and is working perfectly. As mentioned, it was film tested. This Trip had the best exposure accuracy we've ever seen in one of these cameras (at ISO 100 our measured error was a tiny -0.2 stops at EV 9 and + 0.6 stops at EV 15).
