The Trip I bought was in perfect cosmetic condition, but after the first film it appeared, that the meter was dead. In the net I found a way to modify the camera to get the two manual speeds of 1/40 and 1/200sec. Different to the advice there I decided to move the speed control onto the top of the camera using a angled rod. After doing this I have a full manual Trip 35 and can use the excellent lens and the silent shutter of this camera. Another highlight is the perfectly formed body.
