    I posted this on photo.net back when I first did this to my camera, but now that this forum is here, I'll be linking it up here as well. :wink:

    It is a little tutorial I wrote to take the very inexpensive (Yet equipped with a rather nice D. Zuiko lens) Olympus Trip 35, and turn it into a manual mode minimalist zen street shooter.

    Olympus Trip 35 mod.

    Enjoy.

    I did something similar to a Trip 35 with a faulty light meter. For mine, I don't seem to recall having to dig so deeply into the camera's innards: I think I just located the (non-functioning) meter movement which would normally control aperture and shutter speed, figured out which positions corresponded to the higher 1/200th sec shutter speed, and held it in that position with a scrap of wire insulation and a tiny bit of contact cement. Which results in a fixed shutter speed (there were only two speeds to begin with...). For aperture, just use the aperture ring. Remember that it won't synch with flash anymore, because flash uses the 1/40th sec shutter speed.

    How did you manage to get so close to people without them noticing you?
