Olympus Trip 35 Camera (£130.00 incl VAT)
The Trip 35 is a fully-automatic 35mm compact camera, manufactured by Olympus from 1967 to 1984. The auto-exposure mechanism is effectively solar-powered by a selenium cell surrounding the lens, and consequently the camera runs entirely without batteries. Until June 1978, the shutter button was silver-coloured metal. After that date, all Trips had a black plastic button.
Expertly refurbished by Trip Man, complete with a 12 month warranty. The camera has been cleaned inside and out with the lens and viewfinder being nice and clear. The light meter works correctly - the red flag pops up in the viewfinder when the light levels are too low, preventing under-exposures.
An excellent way to experience 35mm photography - the camera is automatic, setting the aperture and shutter speed according to the light. A good investment in a classic, iconic film camera.
Please note: This camera is available in variable colours and 'skins'. The terms 'Lizard', 'Snake' etc. refer to the texture and character of the casing material. Please see product images for more detail.
