Olympus Trip 35 is a completely robotized viewfinder camera produced in 1968 to 1983 by Olympus. It was initially produced for the snapshooter niche. With a lot of interesting features and real time classy design. It has been a household name for real life photographers
The Olympus trip 35 is an all metal camera that is well designed, packaged and very portable to carry about without making you uncomfortable with a weight of 400g.
It has a brilliant non-exchangeable 40mm f/2.8, with four components in three groups and a 40mm focal length which gives you a chance to get closer and get a clearer shot at the object than a 50mm, without mutilating point of view like a wide-edge.
It also comes with a screwy 43.5mm filter thread.
The Trip 35 has a straightforward optical viewfinder, with no parallax amendment
The windows are made of plastic. There is a second, little window under this, nicknamed the “Judas window”, which demonstrates the present opening setting and separation image which are on the focal point barrel.
Metering & exposure
The auto-exposure mechanism is effectively solar-powered by a selenium cell surrounding the lens, and consequently the camera runs entirely without batteries.
The shutter comes with two speeds: 1/40 and 1/200, which are not manual . Flash sync is at 1/40. No Bulb or self-timer. The shutter is nearly silent and Until June 1978, the shutter button was silver-coloured metal. After that date, all Trips had a black plastic button.
Since focus in this model is done by rotation of screw type front lens element, positioning is absolutely crucial and messing up will be very painful.
Single person setting: up to 1.2 metres.
Two-people setting: subjects from 1.2 metres to 2 metres.
Group-of-people setting: subjects from 2 metres to 6 metres.
Mountains: 6 metres to infinity.
The Olympus Trip 35 units are considered to be well-built and mechanically reliable
