Question about Olympus Instant Cameras

1 Answer

I dont know what I am doing!!!

I just inherited an Olympus Accura Zoom XB 70 camera with no manual. I am not a camera buff, but would like to be able to use this camera properly.

On it there are several buttons that I have no idea what they do.
The W button I assume means to wind.
The biggest one takes the picture.

The one marked ''T'' is a guess
Another button, with a rounded top and an icon that looks like a backwards ''G''
and than on the face of the camera a swith that moves vertically from a center position and returns to that positions and has two icons that mimic a mountain and the other possibly a lightng bolt.

I have tried to find a manual for this camera, but to no avail.

The camera has a zoom lens, so 'W' means 'Wide Angle', 'T' means telephoto.

It also has a dedicated landscape mode which is the mountain icon. Use this when taking pictures of landscapes. The lightning bolt, means 'Flash'.

The backwards 'G' sounds like a film wind icon, but that's a guess!

Solution: Reset by removing and reinstalling film. Take the battery out and re-insert.
Cause: Possibly the transport system is not compoleted previously or film door may not be reset. Once it resets it should work.
Cost: Better to purchase another than repair. $40 new

Flshing ''E'' on my Olympus Stylus Zoom 140 35mm camera

The flashing E indicates the film is already rewound.   If you're concerned about it not being fully rewound, open the back in an absolutely dark room. A windowless bathroom or walkin closet will work. Block the bottom of the door with a towel or blanket and make sure there aren't ANY light sources in the room. No charger lights, smoke detectors, etc.
If the film is still hanging out, carefully handle it by the edges only & gently remove it from the camera. Try not to kink it. You can manually wind it back in the cassette by rotating the post on top.
You can download the owner's manual from Olympus at .

Lovely camera, but no manual

Well its not free, but its a place that appears to have the manual:

If you look on the right hand side of that page, you will see a place where you can select the manufacturer and then type in the model name, I just used Fotonex and then scrolled through the results.
