    You'll need a bigger bag to fit the dog.

    Gee, that's an Olympus Trip. Color or B&W?

    It is indeed. It's loaded with Ilford FP4. I bought it for less than seven quid, stripped and cleaned it, tightened everything, fitted new seals and some nice new blue lizard leather skins, a thumb grip which transforms handling, a step up ring from the awkward 43.5 to 46mm - and all for less than twenty quid. To put that into perspective, it costs twenty quid to have that roll of film developed, printed and high-res scanned... I'm seriously thinking of DIY (Develop It Yourself) with "Caffinol". Bringing "Blue" back to life will be the subject of my next article on Macfilos.com.

    Aki Asahi. Been going for over 10 years. Incredibly reasonable, and prompt. $8 for the skins, $7 for the seals, and for that I got the colour I ordered plus another "for practice" and three sets of light seals within a week. They do many other cameras too. http://www.aki-asahi.com/store/html/trip35/trip35.php No affiliation, beyond a satisfied customer.

    You can get redone Trips on Etsy for $75:
    Blue Jeans - Olympus Trip 35
    The "unredone" versions at about $15 on eBay. I didn't realize these were available like this. Nice to see this nice old stuff not going to waste.
