Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Olympus Stylus 120 (aka mju-III 120) is an excellent quality weatherproof 35mm point-and-shoot and one of the last models in the company's legendary Stylus/Stylus Epic/mju series. The camera features a sophisticated 38-120mm lens, here's its description:

By use of a 7-group, 8-element lens configuration featuring two double-sided aspherical lenses and an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass lens, this camera succeeds in achieving sharp and high-quality photography while maintaining a slim body design.

Although this is a very simple camera to use in its automatic mode, it also has a number of advanced features for serious creative photography, including: spot metering; multiple autofocus points for non-centered compositions; focus lock; and force infinity focus to name just a few. This camera also features an adjustable eyepiece which is handy for nearsighted people who prefer to take pictures with their glasses off. 

Condition notes
The camera is in excellent functional and aesthetic condition (see photos). The original case is included. We tested this camera with film and it delivered excellent quality, sharp and correctly exposed images.

Options
If you opt for '+ battery' you'll get a new CR123 3 volt lithium battery; if you choose '+ battery & film' you'll also get a 24-exposure roll of FujiColor 200 film.
