This brick-like 35mm film camera was Olympus' first compact camera with a built-in zoom lens. It had the name Infinity in the US. First retailing in 1987, the camera was quite advanced for a point and shoot model, but seems overly large and bulky by modern standards. It was the first camera in the AZ/Infinity/IZM series of zoom compacts.
