Note: This camera has an intermittent light leak originating from the front (around the lens). In our test roll (taken in full sun) of 14 photos, 9 were OK and 5 had a characteristic 'ring' light leak (which is arguably aesthetically appealing as light leaks go). It's worth noting that the majority of Stylus Epic Zoom 80 cameras now have this light leak: unless proven otherwise with a film test, expect light leaks.
The second and third test images shows the worst of the light leaks in our test (in color film these would appear orange).
We're heavily discounting this camera and we cannot accept returns due to light leaks (the normal 30 day guarantee still applies otherwise).
The Olympus Infinity Stylus Epic Zoom 80 Deluxe is a weatherproof, premium quality zoom point-and-shoot from the late 1990s.
Condition Notes Besides the light leaks this camera is working correctly. We film tested this camera and it delivered sharp, correctly exposed photos. The camera is also in excellent cosmetic condition (see photos).
