Olympus Trip 35 – Part 2

As a follow-up to my previous video, in this edition I explain my attempts to restore an Olympus Trip 35. This is in terms of cosmetic appearance as well as in terms of its operation. I try to follow a superb video to get the aperture blades to work properly. Later I choose to clean, re-skin and paint my newer purchase. I highly recommend Milly’s Cameras for any of your camera repair requirements.

Olympus Trip 35 – Part 1

Another Olympus? Yes, but it’s a very good one. In this video, I talk about my 1968 Olympus Trip 35. My third Trip 35 and the best one yet. The story is a little complicated to cover in just one video and so I will add part 2, as soon as it is ready. In this part, I go through the camera’s operation and a little history behind it. Over 10,000,000 of these were sold between 1967 and 1984. Due to some nice little features and a pin-sharp lens, they are still popular today. I hope to restore mine and perhaps re-cover it as well, so look out for that next time.

Olympus OM-40 Program

This is the 1985 Olympus OM-40 Program. In my opinion, one of the best consumer 35mm SLR’s ever made, and a model I have been on the look out for. Three exposure modes, ESP metering and full DX film capabilities, all make it a very versatile camera and one that is already becoming my favourite to use. Unfortunately, I currently only own one OM mount lens, a 70-150mm zoom. So now I’m on the look out for a nice fast prime lens. You can read more about lenses here.

A massive thank you to everyone who interacts with my channel in any way. You’re all awesome!

Olympus OM-101

The 1988 Olympus OM-101 Power Focus was an unusual SLR. Known as the OM-88 in many parts of the world, it was an entirely automatic camera. However, with the addition of an adaptor, it could be converted in to a manual one. My version unfortunately appears not to be working despite my efforts to clean it. Perhaps somebody can offer me some advice? In the meantime, enjoy my video where I discuss the camera and explain it’s operation.

Olympus XA2

This is my 1980 Olympus XA2 point & shoot 35mm camera. This type of camera is often dismissed as trivial. However, it is compact in size. It produces some great, pin sharp images. It is quite tough and long lasting. All in all, I think the XA2 is a great tool for the beginner, or the street photographer.

I use this one regularly and it is great for grabbing that quick shot. Where setup and preparation are not possible and it performs really well. In this video, I take you through its operation and features.
