Question about Olympus Photography

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!

The markings on the lens barrel are for macro mode purposes. When the zoom ring is set for 300mm that is the distance you are shooting at. It will zoom the barrel all the way out to 300mm if it needs to to help to obtain focus on the subject.

Hope this clears things up for you.

Help!! 10-year old Accura Zoom 80 film camera is taking blurry photos all of a sudden


you should be able to place your hand in front of the auto focus window while looking in front of camera (be careful not to blind yourself with the flash) you should notice the lens moving sightly as if to focus. The best way though is to actually shoot a roll through it. Do not shoot a wedding or anything of real importance...the cost of a roll of film and develop is worth piece of mind.
