Trip Man is a small business specialising in classic Olympus 35mm cameras. We are the premium destination to buy Olympus Trip cameras online. We have been selling these beautiful classic cameras for more than 15 years and are the experts in our field.
We also sell other 35mm Olympus cameras such as the iconic Olympus OM1 and Olympus OM10 SLR cameras. We regularly have a stock of Olympus Pen EE cameras - a half frame version of the Trip 35. Trip Man can also source quality 35mm rangefinder cameras from the same era - 1960s to 1980s, when Olympus made cameras from metal. These are of a similar design to the Trip 35, compact and well designed and solidly built, but have a rangefinder focus system as opposed to the zone focus system of the Trip and Pen series cameras. Thet also have more manual control, enabling independent setting of the aperture and shutter. The Trip 35 has an automatic only exposure system with just 2 shutter speeds. The 35mm rangefinders typically have shutter speeds from 1 second to 1/500 second.
The Olympus 35RC is actually slightly smaller then the Trip 35 but has shutter and aperture control and a rangefinder, enabling more creative control. The lens is a Zuiko 40mm f2.8 like the Trip 35. The 35RD is the next in the line-up, with a 40mm f1.7 faster lens. The 35SP is the big brother of the RC and RD and has the highest qulaity lens in the Olympus 35mm rangefinder family.
The OM SLR system is vast and Trip Man love these cameras and the lenses and accessories for the flexibility and creative control. Our favourites are the OM1, OM1n and the OM1 MD and OM1n MD versions. These are fully mechanical and were made for professional use. They have a built in light meter but the camera can be used without a battery, fully manual and free from electronics.
For those wanting some form of automation, the trusty Olympus OM10 camera is hard to beat for value for money. It has aperture priority control as well as having the option to use the camera in full manual with the addition of the manual adapter. The camera has full compatibilty with the OM Zuiko range of lenses and typically comes fitted with the brilliant 50mm f1.8 standard lens.
We sell the range of cameras fully tested with new light seals and new batteries. All our 35mm cameras come with a full worldwide 6-month warranty for complete peace of mind.
Buying a camera from Trip Man is one way to ensure you are getting the best quality and value for money.
