The iS series (also known as L series in Japan) was a range of compact autofocus SLRs with zoom lenses from Olympus. The lenses were not interchangeable, so the term "bridge cameras" was used to describe them - halfway between point and shoot and SLR cameras. Olympus referred to the range as ZLRs (Zoom Lens Reflex). There are two distinct lines in the iS/L Series: the advanced models 1000, 2000 and 3000 which feature everything one would expect in a normal SLR camera, like full control of aperture and shutter speed and various exposure modes, and the simple models 100(S)/200/300 which give much less control of exposure.
