The Olympus Trip 35 (manufactured by Olympus from 1967 - 1984) is a fully-automatic 35mm compact camera,
- It has an auto-exposure mechanism that is solar-powered by a selenium cell surrounding the lens, meaning the camera can run with essentially no batteries.
- Aperture and shutter speed depends on the amount of light available.
- June 1978, the shutter button was silver-coloured metal. After that date, all Trips had a black plastic button.
- The camera offers no controls for setting exposure manually, though one can compensate by changing the ASA dial to a higher or lower value
- The precise amount of light that triggers a change of the shutter speed is not documented in the user manual, but it is believed to be around EV 13.
- When the brightness of EV 13 or more is detected, the Trip 35 will increase the shutter speed to 1/200 sec. Below EV 13, it will use the 1/40 sec speed and widen the aperture for lower light levels.
- The camera will refuse to fire if there is not enough light, with a red plastic flag appearing simultaneously in the viewfinder. - Such a mechanism makes it impossible to make the error of shooting with the lens cap in place.
