The new TRIP cameras are compact and light, great for slipping in your bag for a day out, and easy to whip out whenever there's a photo opportunity. With smooth body lines and a smart metallic finish, these Olympus cameras combine slick looks with comfortable handling.
Both TRIPS offer fully automatic operation, with motorised film winding/rewinding and auto-flash in low light. The TRIP 500 and AF 50 feature a red-eye reduction lamp, to banish that alarming hellish twinkle from subjects' eyes.
Both models offer versatile flash modes. In addition to auto flash and red-eye reduction, the user can choose the fill-in mode. An option of turning the flash off entirely provides greater creative control.
Both models also features a large LCD panel on top of the camera which displays the frame number, battery check, flash mode and self-timer status. For users who are fed up of never being in their own photos, the TRIP 500 and AF50 feature an electronic self-timer with a 12 second delay.
