Q. How long will it take to deliver my camera?
A. About 7 - 10 working days is the current estimate. We prepare each camera individually for you when you place your order. Small orders for accessories only should be delivered within about 5 - 7 days. We will always try to deliver earlier than these estimates, but we are often busy with multiple orders.
If you are an overseas customer, it will take a little longer. If you want an update or delivery estimate on your order, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Q. Is the camera shown for sale in the photos on the web site the actual camera I will receive?
A. No, the photos are of a representative example. Unfortunately we do not have time to photograph every camera. The cameras we sell are as good as, or better than, the ones shown in the photos. We do check every camera for quality, to make sure it matches the description and images. If a customer does not agree, we will offer a full refund or replacement as part of our customer satisfaction guarantee. We want you to be happy with your purchase. We do however take pictures of special one-off cameras for sale, for example a rare black Trip 35. We will state this fact in the description.
Q. Could you repair/service my own trip please, rather than buying a camera from you?
A. Sorry, we do not currently offer a repair service. We are happy to take your camera in part exchange. I can recommend a guy who does a brilliant job at dismantling and refurbishing Trips. You can contact him by e-mail: email@example.com
Q. I''m looking for a Trip accessory/43.5mm filter that is not shown on your web site. Do you stock other items?
A. Yes we have lots of other accessories and filters not listed here. We have leather cases, many different filters etc. Just send us an enquiry if you are looking for something: firstname.lastname@example.org
Q. What is the difference between an early and a late Trip 35?
A. Earlier Trips have a silver shutter button; later models have black buttons. Inside the camera there are a number of differences, as the camera evolved over time, parts were made from different materials. Earlier models are a fraction heavier because of the components. Early models tend to be a little more expensive due to their being harder to find in good working order. Both models are built to last though and will produce the same excellent results.
Black Trips or very early silver Trips with a 6-digit serial number are now quite rare in good working condition. We sometimes have these available on the website, but feel free to ask if we have any coming into stock by e-mailing us at email@example.com
Q. Which batteries should I use in an OM1, 35RC, 35RD and 35SP?
A. We supply these cameras with the meter set for 1.5V and we supply the cameras with LR9 (PX625 equivalent) 1.5V alkaline batteries. These are readily available in most electrical or photo stores or on Amazon.
See this site for more batteries:
Q. Where can I get 35mm half frame films developed and printed?
