Lomopedia: Olympus Trip AF 50/51

2014-05-07 1

A simple point-and-shoot camera from the 2000s, the Olympus Trip AF 50 follows the “Trip” tradition of providing travelers with a fuss-free shooting experience for documenting their adventures. Find out more about this modern Olympus Trip camera in this installment of Lomopedia!

One of the last few models in the long-running Trip Series of auto focus point-and-shoot cameras by Olympus, the Trip AF 50 was introduced in the 2000s as a more modern offering for holiday snapshooters who wanted “auto-focus everything” for fuss-free travel photography. Its 28mm wide-angle made this Trip model a fun and reliable travel companion for beautiful landscape, group, and party photos, as we can see in many of the photos taken by our fellow lomographers with it so far! A self-timer was eventually added to this camera, and was subsequently named Trip AF 51.

    Does the camera lag for a second when you push the button or is it instant?
