Olympus Trip 35 Exposed I cannot believe that it is 8 months since I accidentally bought my “newest” old Olympus Trip 35 in Christchurch, and I have only just completed running a roll of 36 exposure film through it. If it was a digital camera I would have shot off 36 exposures in about the same number of minutes – seconds even!
