I have wanted an Olympus Trip 35 for ages, so when I found this little one on eBay I was so excited to bid and win.
The Olympus Trip 35’s were produced from 1967 – 1984 (when I was born!).
This was a simple camera to use – but the lack of controls did mean that some of the photos did not turn out quite how I had hoped. It has an aperture range of 2.8-22 which was very usable, but the focusing used symbols of mountains and people so it was a case of guessing where to put the focus ring and hope for the best! Still it was a nice little camera to carry around and point and shoot with. And some of the photos turned out alright, so here are some of my favourites from June;
I hope you have seen some great things in June – I wonder what we will see in July?
