The Olympus 35 DC is a small 35mm rangefinder with a super lens and automatic exposure settings.

image from lungov

This camera was introduced at 1971, but before there were some other variants of this model, which were the Olympus 35 EC/ RC/ ED/ RD. It only works in automatic exposure and with preset combinations of shutter speed and aperture! It comes with a F.ZUIKO 40mm f/1,7 lens!

The only problem is that you can’t shoot during low light conditions. The hot shoe allows the usage of flash in a particular way as well: you tell the camera what is the guide number of your flash unit and, as you focus your subject, the aperture is set according to the distance!

    it's weird you can't use this camera in low light conditions when it goes down to 1,7 (incredible!)

    Great gallery. The camera is similar to Olympus Trip 35 but without the problematic selenium light meter. N1!
