Even as the Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 80 is likely one of the smallest zoom cameras available, it is heavy on styling and great features. Its miniature version of Olympus’s signature clamshell sliding case makes it easy to turn the camera on and off, Even as offering protection against lens scratches. It comes in a good-looking and durable brushed stainless steel case that is splash-proof, so You’ll shoot pictures in a wide variety of weather. The 35 to 80mm zoom lens is perfect for framing portraits, getting in on the action, and capturing faraway subjects.

The panorama switch permits you to take panoramic photos on a roll of regular film. (You’ll take an entire panoramic roll as well.)

It also has a useful Infinity mode, which sets the focal point to let you take shots of distant landscapes and other subjects.
The Olympus Stylus Epic is a pleasure to use–it is as small or smaller than most of the new Advanced Photo System (APS) cameras, but still uses standard 35mm film.
Its tapered design made it easy to slip in a pocket, and since it is little larger than a deck of cards, we found ourselves carrying it all over. It’s especially nice to have the zoom in such a compact camera.
