Olympus film compact camera viewfinder!
Because we can’t speak english
I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence,
but I would like you to understand
Discovering through the Viewfinder of a Film Compact Camera Series!
This time we would like to focus on Olympus film compact cameras.
We will take a look at the products on sale at our vintage shop Japan Inc. as a reference.
OLYMPUS IZM300 QUARTZ DATE
OLYMPUS IZM300 QUARTZ DATE was released in 1988.
It is a compact camera with a unique design. (Also known as a bridge camera.)
The viewfinder of a typical film compact camera is on the opposite side of the shutter release button, but this camera has the viewfinder on the side of the shutter release button.
It is a square type with R on the four corners.
OLYMPUS OZ 80 Zoom
The OLYMPUS OZ 80 Zoom was released in 1997.
This compact camera has a distinctive front mask.
This one has a viewfinder on the opposite side of the shutter button.
General viewfinder position.
It is a horizontal rectangular viewfinder with a built-in pilot lamp.
Again, we have seen the viewfinder.
I noticed that even though they are made by the same manufacturer, the designs are completely different.
I think Olympus has many cameras with more distinctive designs.
And compact cameras, which are often made of plastic or resin, offer a variety of designs in various parts.
Since compact cameras are easy to use, isn’t it a good idea to choose a film camera with an emphasis on design?
I hope you all enjoy your film cameras as much as I do!
