Infinity Zoom 80 QD Packs Power and Value in Quality Package

Melville, New York - Sometimes going back to your roots is the best way to go. In the case of Olympus America, returning to the Infinity brand of cameras has yielded success. This year, Olympus releases the Infinity Zoom 80 QD, a compact 35mm camera that features a powerful 38~80mm zoom lens.

The Infinity Zoom's all new sleek design represents style, value and performance in a sleek 35mm point and shoot camera. The Infinity Zoom 80 QD, finished in metallic silver color, is oval in shape with the recognizable sliding lens barrier that protects the lens while providing style. The perfect take-anywhere-camera, the Infinity Zoom is lightweight and measures only 4.6"W x 2.5"H X 2.1 "D, yet is full of features.

Developed for consumers wanting an affordable, high quality camera that takes great pictures, the Infinity Zoom 80 QD allows its user to choose any zoom setting, not preset lengths. This Olympus offering has a built-in flash system with six flash modes:

  • Auto Flash Mode for automatic usage in low light;
  • Red-Eye Reduction Mode lessens the chance of a subject's red eyes;
  • Red-Eye Reduction Night Mode lessens the chance of a subject's red eyes in Night Scene mode
  • Flash Off Mode is ideal in flash photography prohibited settings;
  • Fill-In Flash Mode is helpful in erasing shadows in bright light;
  • Night Scene Mode ensures nighttime shots retain crisp foreground; subjects and background light such as sunsets or city lights.
Images are guaranteed sharp and crisp with the new 464-step autofocus system in the Infinity Zoom80 QD. Resulting photos are the quality consumers have come to know from Olympus. Despite the extensive focus capabilities this camera possesses, the Infinity Zoom 80 QD is one of the best values available in a point and shoot camera. It has the same high-quality lens that is standard in all Olympus cameras, a trait of this leading optical company.

Additional features include a real-image zoom viewfinder, auto film loading and rewinding, electronic self-timer with 12-second delay. The Infinity Zoom 80 QD uses one 3V-lithium battery and offer Film Speed Range for 100, 200, 400 and 800 speed 35mm film.

It is good to have the Infinity back in the family of superior Olympus offerings. For information about the Infinity Zoom 80 QD or other fine products from Olympus, please visit http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_film_accura.asp
