The Olympus Trip 35 is a cracking little camera that is capable of some stunning results from it’s 40mm f/2.8 Zuiko lens. Here is a short guide for getting the best results from this camera.
The lens of the Olympus Trip 35 is as sharp as a pin. As good as this camera is it does have its limitation. The main limtation with this camera being the shutter, don’t get me wrong it works very well.
The shutter speed of this camera is limited to just two, which are 1/40 and 1/200s. If you have loaded a slow film like 100ASA and you are shooting in low light, the camera will default to 1/40th which can be a little slow for hand held shots. This in turn can cause a camera shake, resulting in blurred pictures. This is fine if that’s the result you are after. But if you would rather have a much sharper image, then you could use some form of rest for the camera, like a tripod, mono pod, or a beanbag.
But if you’re bag is street/candid photography, that kind of gives the game away. A better option would be to load the camera with a faster film like 400ASA. This will keep you’re Trip shooting at 1/200th longer, and will avoid blurred photographs due to camera shake. I hope you have found this useful, have fun with the Trip.
All the photographs were taken with my Olympus Trip 35. Long live film!

A flash here, a flicker there. An afterimage is an optical illusion and reoccurring phenomenon resulting from a brief exposure to a bright light source, such as a camera flash. What's even more fascinating than experiencing this illusion is discovering that your camera is able to mimic its effect!

One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
