Early Olympus Trip 35 in soft Tan cowhide leather
This is the silver shutter button version of the Trip 35 in a genuine tan cowhide leather. Serviced and supplied with a 12 month warranty.
Beautifully refurbished; it has been fully serviced and has new light seals. The light meter and red flag (low light warning) works and the camera has no dents. The lens is free from marks, scratches and fungus. We have covered the camera with a lovely smooth, soft cowhide leather. There is just a nice light patina, consistent with age. See photos of the actual camera for sale.
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.
The Zuiko 40mm f2.8 lens is famous for being sharp. The camera has 2 shutter speeds - 1/40 and 1/200. Simple to use, fully automatic exposure and a simple zone focus, these cameras were built to last and need no batteries. Film speed up to 400ASA.
A lovely camera to use and also a good investment.
