At The Ramadan Bazaar, Olympus Trip 35

'Five frames with the Olympus Trip 35, a street shoot down at the Ramadan Bazaar'

The annual Ramadan Bazaar is, as always, a hive of activity where throngs of buyers size up the delights for their break of fast and the sellers equally active hawking the aromas of local delicacies.

Enjoyed the shoot with the Olympus Trip 35, a four-zone focus viewfinder camera that is fitted with a very sharp and highly acknowledged D.Zuiko 40mm F2.8 lens. AE (automatic exposure) is via a solar-powered selenium light meter that adjusts the aperture of the lens when the camera is set to its 'A' mode.

Shutter speed on the Trip 35 is 1/200th second when the camera is set to the 'A' mode, and 1/40th second when set for manual or flash mode. A red pop-up flag locks the shutter from being fired when the camera detects insufficient lighting for the 'A' mode to get a correct exposure for the framed view.

Apart from the straightforward four-position zone focus system, and an ISO setting from 25–400 (for the later version with the black plastic shutter button), the snap-shooter camera had no other photographic controls.
