Updated review: Olympus Trip 35

The Olympus Trip 35 is a terrific camera to take along on vacation given its automated features with no need for a battery — and given its terrific lens. My review is updated here.

    Another great little Olympus model. I find that, on a bright day with 400asa film, setting the focus ring at the 6 metre setting means pretty much everything is in tack-sharp focus.

    I still have my dad’s original model Trip, but the red flag doen’t work anymore (although I believe the metering is still fine) and it’s got a dot of fungus in the lens. I also have a plastic shutter-button version too, which is the one I use. While I was initially concerned about the accuracy of the zone focusing, I’ve managed to get sharp results on almost every shot I’ve taken with it.

      I think ISO 400 film and the 6-meter setting is the way to shoot this camera. Point and shoot simple, great results.

      Another reader commented on the original review post this morning with a link to his post about how to get the lens out — maybe you can follow his steps and see if that dot of fungus can be cured on yours?
