The Trip XB40 AF of 2000 is a compact camera with autofocus, taking 35mm film, which was manufactured by Olympus in China. It was one of a series of cheap models branded with the famous Trip name. Encased in a small lightweight body this compact camera is fully automatic with no manual overrides. It has automatic film advance and power rewind.
Customers requiring a self-timer had to pay a little extra for the XB41 AF, which was encased in exactly the same body. A QD model added Quartz date function.
A cheaper variant with fixed focus was the XB401.
