Trip Man

Early Olympus Trip 35 in black cowhide leather


This is the silver shutter button version of the Trip 35 in black 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) work. The lens is free from marks, scratches and fungus. We have covered the camera with a lovely real leather. The camera is in good working condition, with some patina, just scuffs and signs of use - see photos of 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.
