A few months ago I bought from ebay an old amazing Olympus Trip 35. It was in excellent condition with  new brown leather skin,cleaned and new seals for 55 euros.I surely know that it was money well spend.

This camera is a fully-automatic viewfinder camera made from 1968 to 1983 during which time over ten million units were sold. The Trip name was a reference to its intended market – people who wanted a compact, functional camera for holidays. During the 1970s it was the subject of an advertising campaign that featured popular British photographer David Bailey.

It has over the years achieved a cult status with many loyal followers. This is a cult camera because it’s awesome: Small, well built and simple, with a great Zuiko lens and No Battery is needed.
Here are some sample shots from this little beauty.

If you want a small in size camera,easy to use ,capable or razor sharp pictures for a small fee you should consider buying an Olympus Trip 35.Its fun to shoot, easy to carry around and will never let you down. Ohh and you will never need a battery.Note: Always keep on the lens cap when you dont use or store your camera or the selenium cells on it will deplete and the metering wont be accurate.
