The Trip 35 is a 35mm compact camera, manufactured by Olympus. It was introduced in 1967 and discontinued, after a lengthy production run, in 1984. The Trip name was a reference to its intended market – people who wanted a compact, functional camera for holidays. Over ten million units were sold.
The Trip 35 was a point and shoot model, with a solar-powered selenium light meter, and just two shutter speeds. The Olympus Trip 35 operates completely without batteries. Its light meter and programmed automatic exposure system are solar-powered. This makes it one of the world’s most advanced cameras which provides fully automatic exposure completely without batteries or external electrical power.
