Released in 1990, the DL-500 is the dual-lensed compact camera from Fuji, offering 28mm and 45mm focal lengths. Has date and a panorama mode. The Japanese edition was known as the Cardia Travel Mini Dual-P (with date and pan), while the American release is called Discovery mini Dual Date (no pan). Early models are distinguished by the auto-retracting lens barrier, whilst later copies starting in 1991 have an integrated UV filter as lens protection. These models are called DL-500 Wide Panorama Date, DL-500 Wide Date and Discovery mini Dual. Silver versions are also available of the Cardia Travel Mini Dual-P and Discovery mini Dual. A variation, the Discovery Mini-Dual Plus, and Discovery Mini-Dual Panorama Plus has an extra light for red-eye reduction.
