The Advantix T550 is a fixed-lens compact auto-focus camera for the APS film system, made by Kodak from about 1999.[1] It has a flash built into a flip-up lens-cover. Otherwise, many of its features are very similar to the more conventionally-shaped Advantix T500. The Advantix T700 has the same flip-up cover/flash, but has a zoom lens, and is 'weatherproof'.
