I in this blog post I want to talk about my Olympus Trip 35 camera.
As I am sure you are all aware I am a massive fan of film cameras, vintage and new. Over recent months I have seen the rise in popularity with retro film cameras, and noticed the prices creeping up more and more.
The Olympus Trip 35 camera is an iconic film camera, first made in 1967, it was designed to be compact and functional so that it could be easily taken on your trips. In the 1970’s the Trip saw a boost in sales when the popular british photographer David Bailey took part in the advertising campaign.
For a camera the Olympus Trip is extremely user friendly. It has an auto-exposure system operated by a selenium photo-electric cell light meter to control the lens aperture. The beauty of this type of meter is that it doesn’t require batteries.
To focus the camera you work in meters, this is a simple way of shooting, you have a choice of four settings: 1 meter, 1.5 meters, 3 meters and infinity.
Olympus Trips have the option to add a flash and can be synced to a studio, which are both desirable features, as you can use the camera in any setting and for shooting whatever you please.
I bought my Olympus Trip 35 so that I can take it out on my trips with me. Taking the Trip for a trip!
If you like this camera, stay tuned as we are giving it away! More details to come.
Since purchasing the Trip I have not been let down, for the price you pay you get an unbelievable camera, the camera is sturdy and has a 4 element lens. With this camera you really can go off and have a good shoot and not need to worry, you can really think about what you want to take a photograph of; More time spent thinking about the look of your image and less about whether you have all the settings correct, will ultimately result in a better image.
Taking the Trip for a trip is going to be a constant feature, so keep up to date on where we have been by checking the blog.
