Film's not dead. Part 2

Follow up to my last post, here's the compact and cool Olympus Trip 35. A neat little point and shoot camera with a 40mm f2.8 lens, solar-powered light metering and four position focus system. This camera was introduced in 1967 and produced right up until 1984. I found the focusing kind of tricky as you really had to estimate how far you were from your subject. I showed my mum these and she said the really out of focus ones reminded her so much of the actual photos floating around at the time this camera was popular. So keeping it real, I've included even those.

This camera was really compact but felt weighty with a solid build. Winding the film after each shot was very nostalgic and gave me a good feeling. I really enjoyed shooting with this pocket camera and think it would be awesome for travel photography once you get the hang of it.

Here are the photos I took... the good, the bad and the ugly haha!
