Tag: Olympus Trip 35

Across the Room

I have had a roll of Rollei 25 RPX in the Olympus Trip 35 for over a year.  Finally finished it up.  At iso 25, this film requires bright light along with a steady hand.  A lot of the time I had neither.  Out of a roll of 36, maybe 5-7 are any good.  I think this one is one of my favorites – it has people in it!  Most of my pictures do not – so this is a rare occasion on this end!

Fallen

Just because of the way life has been moving of late, I have not had much opportunity or desire to get out to make some photos.  However, my interest must be returning as I am looking at older pix and editing them in LR and other software.  Here, some fallen alstroemeria petals.

And today, I went out to the local botanical gardens with the Trip 35 and a roll of Rollei 25.  I don’t know if it’s black and white, or color film.  So, I just shot!  It had to be out in bright circumstances – 25 iso film need a lot of light!  Where it was a bit “dark” for the sensor, popping the iso to 40 or 50 fooled the camera.  Let’s see what comes of them . . .

About to Fall

Last week I took five rolls of film for processing.  This was taken with Kodak UltraMax 400 with an Olympus Trip 35.  It was a dark and stormy day when I wandered out, but even with 400 iso film, the images came back extremely noisy.  I had to do a bit of work to get the roll even somewhat acceptable, in my eyes, but some of the pictures were really nice.

My cheap “go to” films for 135 are Kodak UltraMax 400 and Agfa Vista 200, but I think I am going to use up the UltraMax to see how it works in different cameras.  It could be that the Olympus was at fault as it died a bit later.  I don’t want to just be done with it, but want to see if there are other issues involved.

This sycamore curves and twists over a steep fall into a barranca.  How it hangs on is rather amazing!  And when the leaves change, it is a stunningly beautiful tree.

In case you don’t know, I absolutely love trees.
