The Olympus Infinity SuperZoom 3500 (known as the Olympus SuperZoom 120 TC in some countries) is a quality 35mm zoom point-and-shoot camera from the 1990s. It features a very elaborate 35-120mm zoom lens (F4.5~8.7, 10 elements in 8 groups). In our testing we found the lens be to exceptionally sharp for a zoom point-and-shoot camera.
This camera requires two CR123 lithium batteries (optional).
Condition notes We tested all camera functions with film and batteries installed (the film was not processed) and everything was working well. We verified the camera's film plane focus accuracy on an autocollimator. The camera is in good cosmetic condition with only minor wear to the body (see photos). The original case is included (not pictured).
