The Trimlite Instamatic 38 was a step-up model in Kodak's 1975 Trimlite series for 110 film. It features a photocell-controlled shutter offering a wide range from 1/225 sec. to as long as 5 seconds. (Speeds too long to hand-hold show a red warning in the viewfinder.) There is a two-position focus setting, with the close-focus range limited to 3–6 feet. A sliding door closes to protect the lens, also moving a diagonal warning reminder into the viewfinder.
The Trimlite 38 accepts flip-flash bars or dedicated Kodak Ektron electronic flash units.
