Great Photos Adam! I also have an Olypus Trip 35 with a working meter! I keep it loaded in the glovebox of my car. The lens on mine is crazy-sharp! I, too flip the camera to read the distance, but just as on my Chaika II, I found the symbols do impart distance. Each figure is meter. Without running down and checking, let me see if I remember. The one person is one meter (three feet). The one big and one half sized person in 1-1/2 meters or 4-1/2 feet. Three people is three meters or 9 feet and the mountains are infiniti. The flash setting /distance/aperture compensator works great. My only complaint is once in a while the camera chooses the slower 1/40 shutter speed when I'm trying to capture motion.
It's a really cool solar-powered camera!
