Camera Review of the Week


After what seemed like too long ago, we’re bringing back the Camera Review of the Week to acknowledge the insights and first impressions of our community members on various analogue cameras out there. Let’s get started with a review on a classic Olympus shooter!

While he was certainly not the first to provide insights about this world-famous analogue camera, adam_g2000 ’s review on the Olympus Trip 35 is certainly worth checking out! He is generous enough to give fellow analogue lovers an encouraging tip: “A world famous classic, selling millions of units worldwide. This means plenty are available in thrift stores, op-shops and across the internet.” That should push us to give a more thorough search for this camera!

What makes the Trip 35 worth including in a lomographer’s arsenal? According to our featured snapshooter, the zone-focus camera, which is a lot like the LC-A, captures “accurate and more lifelike” photos that come close to those taken with a “far more expensive SLR.” Well, don’t his photos bear testament to this, and tell a lot about the potential of this Olympus shooter with a cult status!

    I recently got one and I'm obsessed! It shoots so beautifully with slide film! There's also a close up filter which you can find on ebay occasionally for pretty cheap
