  1. I am needing to make a claim for insurance----airline have lost my luggage that contained a treasured Olympus Trip. Do you know what the purchase price would have been in say 1985? Many thanks
  2. Where can I get a REPAIR manual for this camera?
  3. Regarding the SELENIUM CELL - is there a useful life limitation on this part of the camera,... ie, I've got a Trip 35 which is about 40+ years old, but which has been kept in its case, and unused for about the last 10 - 15 years, so if I commence using the camera again, can I depend upon the selenium cell to still be in working order and condition?

    I don't have any documented information but I would guess it was around £70.00. Ours was purchased in 1979 and was £64.00.

  2. Where can I get a REPAIR manual for this camera?
    As far as I know there isn't one. There are links on the links page of the website www.olympus-trip.co.uk to download the user manual and to a Blog that deals with modifications.

    There is no reason why the selenium cell shouldn't function normally provide the camera has been kept in a reasonably dry and stable atmosphere over all those years. If it hasn't you would be more likely to have mechanical problems such as the shutter mechanism sticking. If all seems to be well just put a film in, go out and take some pictures and be astounded by the results when you get the film processed! Enjoy your Trip
