I have not heard of the Olympus 35 D. Could you mean the DC?

Another thought might be the Olympus Pen D.

It says Olympus D on the left. Lens seems to be F.Zuico 40mm 1.7

Its 35 DC. C is covered by the lever
Google it and you will find a lot of info for 35DC

I think it's a 35 DC, with the self-timer lever in the actuated position. The model should also be on the top plate.

That's a DC, the C is hidden by the self timer arm.
Here's a bit of info grabbed at random from Google: http://www.lungov.com/wagner/c/040c.html

How much would you guys pay for this camera in working condition?

I've seen them go from $25 to $125. $25-$50 is typical. I paid about $45 or so for mine and think it's worth every cent. The lens is superb!

Hi,

It is a Olympus DC. I have one. It is a nice camera. You will need a battery adapter for it to function. In fact at the moment, from the photograph you posted, it won`t even work. Why? The self-timer is cocked. If the self-timer is cocked, and there is no battery, or there is a dead battery in the cahmber, the camera, will not release the shutter. Until a working battery is inserted the camera you posted is a good as rotten fish to eat.

BTW I paid 15$. Is it worth more? I do not know. It is up to you. But is looks to be in rough shape. I would not go higher than 15$. If it had a case, lens cap, look better I would go as high as 45USD$.

Thank guys. That is what I thought more or less too. I appreciate it. I'll take a closer look and let you know. BTW, what battery can be used these days?

Hi,

Check out this link to test photos and conclusions on the DC http://www.rangefinderforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=42327

The camera originally designed for mercury-based batteries. There are replacements, such as the V625U and LR9. You can buy an adapter to use button-cell SR43 batteries. I bought an adapter from a local camerashop. I got it cheap 9USD$ because I am a friend of the owner. They usually go for 19USD$,

Good luck.

Hi,

I have one of this cameras, i got it from my dad, he bought it a long time ago, but she's not working, I'm trying to find someplace to fix it, but I can't find it.

Do you know any repair shop for this cameras? I prefer in Europe.

I really would love to fixe, this is an excellent camera

Thanks everyone

I'm now the proud owner of a refurbed DC. Put a battery in and all working fine. Bit of a point and shoot but it looks superb and it's an Olympus from the golden age. Like it lots. Paid 40 + postage for the stats lovers amongst you.
