For anyone who wants to take well exposed, sharp pictures but with a fixed focus lens, I would recommend the trusty old Olympus Trip 35. Not the new plastic bodied, plastic lens toy variety, but the metal bodied model with a multi-coated Zuiko lens promoted so successfully by David Bailey in the ’70s – a camera capable of producing pictures indistinguishable from those taken with a top professional 35mm camera.T
The Olympus Trip is very, very easy to use. It has an auto-exposure system operated by a selenium photo-electric cell light meter to control the lens aperture. The beauty of this type of meter is that it doesn’t require batteries. Modern 35mm compacts advantage over this is the fact that it doesn’t have a built in flash. With small automatic flashguns being so cheap these days, however, this should not be a problem for most people. All you need to do after fitting the flashgun to the hot shoe is to set the aperture ring to the correct f-stop. So, anyone out there, join me as I make an unforgettable trip with the Trip!
Photographer couple Ryan and Garovs Vergara, collectively known as "Everywhere We Shoot", found a Japanese 35mm compact camera (seemingly brand new, in box, and fully packaged) in a surplus shop in Manila. They didn't expect for the camera to be already used, though.
For vintage portraitists, no one can ever go wrong with Edward Curtis, the American photographer, and ethnologist whose coverage of the American West and Native American peoples continue to be one of the most significant works and oeuvre of an artist in American history.
