Olympus Trip 35

Hello there!
I got very excited recently and thought I should share with the world
my new favourite present! (apart from the Silly Putty that Mark got me last week- do you remember that stuff?!

The other weekend we went round to see Mark
s Grandma in sunny Cheltenham, when the mentioning of cameras came up, she had heard through the grapevine that I was interested in photography and casually said " I have a box of old cameras that I thought you might like to look at" - I know many of you reading this are like me, and it felt like Christmas had come early

Amongst some really old slides and manuals for cameras that weren't in her box was this little beauty,it was her little Olympus Trip 35 camera, so p
retty in a leather case that was worn away enough for it to have that "vintage" smell (smells like garages!)

I'm so excited to see how they will come out- sure enough I will be posting them on here. There was even a little attachable flash I could use! oohh la laa I feel like the luckiest girl in the planet :)

what's your favourite camera? and do you have any tips on this lil number?


  1. Nice camera!!! I love old cameras. I can't wait to get my grandfather's old cameras and see all of the pictures he took again.

  2. nice camera! there is nothing like playing with film. you scored a beauty ;)

  3. i'm so jealous. i love camera's myself. vintage camera's are awesome. i wonder if my grandfather still has his old camera. hmm.
