from a 35mm half frame negative?

It is more than 10 years since I used one Olympus Trip. How big can the prints be from its negatives?

The Trip was a full frame camera, whereas the half-frames were mainly called Pens if I recall correctly. The Trip had a good lens, but the main quality issue is likely to be the actual film you use, since better quality film such as Kodak Ektar is needed to get the best out of it. If it really is half frame, I'm not sure how many labs are geared up to deal with it?

The Olympus Trip is a full frame 35mm compact its not half frame, the prints can be what ever size you like.

I have two of these in full working order and a few more for the spare parts.

Its a lovely simple camera with a really great lens.

I was a member of a group that called ourselves night trippers, for the simple reason we went out at night and really pushed these little things hard.

Oooops! My mistake, and thank you for noticing. It was an Olympus PEN then, it was loaned to me, the counter could reach 72 frames, what a joy, making the most out of a roll of 36 exposures!

That's what "sold me" on one a friend had, so I bought a Pen EE-S. When it broke I took it apart to see if I could fix it and was fascinated by how simple the mechanism was. Although I wasn't able to fix that one, I bought another, then another, and yet another, and ..... things went downhill from there.

I now have examples of all the cameras (bar 1 that I only assume was made because I haven't seen one yet), all the SLR lenses bar 4 and most of the accessories that Olympus made under the Pen brand.

I've fond memories of processing and printing from an Olympus trip. 8 by 10 prints were no problem from it and i still have a few somewhere.
