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 is 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.
