View Full Version : Trip 35 Shot
Courtesy and with the permission of Dr. Paul Perkins, who belongs to the olympus-pen-rf Yahoo mailing list. I'm always amazed at the images the Trip 35 (http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=3381067) can produce.
Very cool photo, thanks for sharing. The Trip is definitely a great camera, no doubt about it. Built like a tank, very intuitive to operate, and a great lens. What more could you ask for? Well, maybe the ability to shoot ISO 800 and 1600 film, I suppose... but other than that, it's a great vacation camera and an excellent daytime street shooter. I don't take mine out to play nearly as often as I should.
Here's another one (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tony_browne/325361383/in/[email protected]

I've got a roll of tri-x sitting in mine at the moment...it hasn't had anything through it in years (was my grandfathers and bought new when they came out), I saw Rich Silvfers blog and his post here and remembered I had it. It's also the camera that I took my very first photo with, massive sentimentality.
If anyone wants one for the cost of P&P I have a "much loved", fully working one in my drawer.
I like it, the lens is nice. But, I always forget about the focussing and it is hopeless in indoor light (lower than EV7-8).
However, it is small, extremely tough, quiet and lovely cheap. Plus David Bailey did an advert for it.
I now keep a XA2 in my coat pocket instead.
Hi Kully. If you still have it I would be interested. Rod.
Wow, stunning photos! Maybe it's time I put a roll through one of mine...
I emailed you pixman - the Trip is yours.
Thanks a million, Kully. Pixman
