Known as the Olympus Stylus Epic ZOOM 80 in the US, this was a 35mm compact camera from the very successful mju/Stylus/Epic series and was introduced by Oly,pus in 1999. There were several revisions of this camera, which was available in black, silver, and tinged with gold. A later model with the same lens had the VF suffix, indicating the "Visual Finder" which went black when the shutter fired. This was helpful in noisy locations, because it was difficult to tell if the picture had been taken on the earlier version. Some examples of the ZOOM 80 included a panorama mask and/or QD (Quartzdate) date imprinting. A DELUXE edition was even bundled with a Swatch watch.
