The Olympus AF-1 Mini (Infinity Mini in the US) of 1995 is a small weatherproof, fully-automatic compact camera. Along with the AF-10 Mini, it revived a range from the 1980s that were known for their advanced AF and metering as well as luxurious design and sleek styling. This incarnation of the 'AF' series was placed between the entry-level 'trip' series and the high-end μ[mju:] series. The AF-1 shares many design features with the μ series cameras, such as:

  • Lens: Same as the μ[mju:]-1, 35mm, f/3.5, 3 elements in 3 groups
  • Compact body shell with sliding lens cover that also serves as the power switch
  • Assisted film loading, with built in motor film-advance, automatic rewind at end of film, and mid-roll rewind
  • Autofocus, range 0.5m-∞, focus lock
  • Auto-exposure programmed mode
  • Flash modes: Auto-flash, GN10, Red-eye reduction, Fill-in, and Off
  • Film ISO set automatically with DX coded film (ISO 50-3200); fixed at ISO 100 with non-DX film
  • 12 Second self-timer
  • Weather proof (against splashes)
  • Power from either CR123 3V lithium battery or two 1.5V AA batteries.
