The µ[mju:] ZOOM was a fully automatic 35mm compact camera introduced by Olympus in 1993. It was very small and curvy for a zoom camera (the lightest in its class) with an integrated lens cover. It is switched on by shifting the lens cover to one side. Made in China, it was part of the hugely successful Olympus mju/Stylus series. Unlike the basic mju/Stylus, the auto-flash popped-up at an angle when used. Several versions were made for different markets, usually in black or silver, some with a switchable panorama mask and/or Quartzdate imprinting. DLX models could be controlled remotely and are weatherproof.
