The Trip 500 is a fixed focus entry level compact 35mm film camera produced by Olympus in 2002. It is part of the Olympus Trip series that was reintroduced in the 1980's. A similar model and released at the same time is the Trip 505. It is almost the identical, but has a self-timer. The 500 features a 28 mm f/6.7 lens made from 3 elements in 3 groups. This fixed focused lens has a range of 1.0 m to infinity. The shutter has a single speed of 1/100 second and there is an automatic built-in flash with red-eye reduction. It is compatible with DX-coded films with a range of ISO 100 to 400 and film that is not coded is fixed by the camera default at ISO 100. Film is advanced and rewound with a motor drive and the camera is mid-roll rewind capable. The camera is powered by 2x AA batteries with a life of approximately 20 rolls of 24 exposure film. The camera also has a built in lens cover that seconds as an on/off switch, optical viewfinder, flash ready LED, film observation window in the back cover, frame counter on the top of the camera, and a ¼” 20 thread per inch tripod socket.
