The Trip 35 is a 35mm compact camera, manufactured by Olympus. It was introduced in 1967 and discontinued, after a lengthy production run, in 1984. The Trip name was a reference to its intended market – people who wanted a compact, functional camera for holidays. During the 1970's it was the subject of an advertising campaign that featured popular British photographer David Bailey.
The Trip 35 is a point and shoot model with a 40mm f2.8 lens, solar-powered selenium light meter, and just two shutter speeds. In 'A' mode, the camera operated as a Program automatic, choosing either 1/40th sec or 1/200th sec. The camera could also sync with flash, and had a range of aperture settings, from f2.8 to f22.
This lot contains a fully working Trip 35 (including the solar-powered light meter) and has been tested with film in the past week. The camera's body is in very good condition with only very small marks (see photos) and comes with a Olympus Pen lens cap, which fits nicely. The camera has been tested with the supplied Sunpak MX112 Electronic Flash unit and this comes with a brand-new AA battery.
The camera has also had a brand-new hinge light seal fitted in the past week. An Olympus camera case with shoulder strap is supplied is in good condition. The original wrist strap, Olympus Skylight lens filter and printed manual (tape repairs, but still useable) are also provided.
