Olympus 35 RC in working condition

Hello all,

Does anyone have a fully working Olympus 35 RC they would be willing to part with? I am not worried about cosmetic condition as long as everything is fully functional including the light meter and a fairly clear lens.

Price I can pay would reflect the condition, so if anyone has one please let me know.

Recently got a Trip 35 on the forum which has peaked my interest in these compact film cameras.

Thanks for your help,

Phil

Exclamation Re: Olympus 35 RC in working condition

I have an RC left in my collection. It's in very good/excellent condition, with an Olympus UV Filter. I've just tested it and it works fine, although I have not checked the meter against a light meter, to see if it is reading the correct exposure.

On eBay they are priced between 15 to 105



Looking through what's on offer at the moment, I'd consider my one to be as good (maybe slightly better) than this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OLYMPUS-35...gAAOSw5VFWJk~n

SO: It all comes down to what you want to pay for one.

Re: Olympus 35 RC in working condition

I have a nice one but I don't want to sell it I'm afraid. Great little camera but bear in mind the correct mercury batteries are no longer available so if you can find one that's been converted to take newer silver-oxide cells (or some other solution) that would be an advantage. Good luck with your search Phil .

Graham - quite a collection indeed! I can only run to the 35RC, a 35ED and an XA.

Re: Olympus 35 RC in working condition

Wow! Are you offering that for sale? If so, I'd almost fee bad l buying that off you... would leave a gap in your collection. I was looking to spend at most 40-50 for one if it was in good cosmetic condition which I'm guessing would be a bit short of what you'd want. Please to be in touch if I am mistaken (-:

Do you mind me asking, which is your favourite of the 35's shown above?

Thanks, Phil

The 35RD is by far the best. It was my first 35mm camera and will be the one that probably stays with me.

I'll send you a PM

Re: Olympus 35 RC in working condition

Graham, thanks. Will be in touch tomorrow evening once I've pondered it a little.

Thanks for the heads up Otto. The following site suggests I can use Wein Cell MRB625 which would be a simple solution

Best, Phil

Re: Olympus 35 RC in working condition

Yes, the Wein cell is the simplest solution, the only disadvantage being that once you remove the tab to activate the cell it starts to discharge whether you use it or not. I still have a PX625 mercury cell in mine, it's donkeys years old but still works fine!

Re: Olympus 35 RC in working condition

Thanks Graham, arrived today in immaculate condition. Have some Tri-X ready to go in, so hope the new batteries arrive tomorrow so I can shoot with it. Have Ektar 100 in my Trip, so will be all set to go then (-:

Kind Regards,
Phil
