The 500AF was the top model of the Instax Wide series, launched in 1999 in Japan and 2001 in England again, it had a short production time. Favoured model because of the auto focus mode, the tripod mount and the ability to turn off the flash, therefore, often very expensive. It is sometimes offered as the professional model. With the lens retracted it's significantly smaller than the other Wide models. For photographers shooting a lot it's certainly a temptation.
