The LT-1 was launched in 1994 and ending in 1996. The LT-1 and LT-1 QD are autofocus cameras with a unique synthetic leather exterior that linked the body with the camera case. Special molding technology combined the synthetic leather with the molded case to create a leather-finish body that fit perfectly into the hand. They were available in black, green, brown, and burgundy. These were a "designer" compact aimed at travelers requiring a good-looking point and shoot with a prime lens and with the lens cover closed, the camera looked more like a wallet. The LT-1 was the first in the Olympus LT (leather tech) series, and was followed in 1996 by a QD version with a Quartz date function. The cameras have a 35mm, f/3.5 three element lens and a built in flash. They also have auto focus, auto Exposure, auto flash with an off button, DX decoding, motor drive for auto film advance plus rewind, self-timer, Mode button, ¼” by 7/8” LCD display, and a handy carry strap. The cameras operate on one lithium 3V CR123 (CR123a, UL-123, or 123) battery. As far as the years produced are concerned, Olympus is not the best company for gaining correct information about any camera or information from the company themselves.
