The Olympus Infinity Accura Zoom XB70 is a quality late-1990s 35mm point-and-shoot featuring a 38-70mm zoom. Besides minor cosmetic changes, it's nearly identical to the Accura Zoom XB 700, described here: 

The Accura Zoom XB700 also has a number of "convenient" features that make it a great camera choice. There's the sliding lens barrier that protects the camera's powerful optics from dust particles and scratches. There's the battery check feature that takes the guessing out of how much battery power you have left. And there's a built-in 12-second self-timer so you, too, can be a part of your pictures.

This camera requires two AA batteries (not included).

Buyers note: Like all 35mm zoom point-and-shoot that use ordinary AA batteries, this camera zooms, recharges its flash, and advances film a bit more slowly than a comparable model that uses lithium batteries. This is normal, lithium batteries deliver more power than alkaline types. However, alkaline batteries can found nearly everywhere and less expensive than lithium types. 

Condition notes
We tested all camera functions with film and batteries installed (the film was not processed) and everything is working well. We verified the camera's film plane focus accuracy on an autocollimator and also its auto-exposure accuracy. The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos). The case is included but only in fair condition.
