Question about Olympus Accura Zoom 80 35mm Point and Shoot Camera
I've never had any problems with my camera since I purchased it 10 years ago. All of a sudden, in the middle of a roll of film I recently shot, half the photos came out blurry. I read my manual, it said to clean the lens and autofocus windows. I did that. I also opened the empty camera, cleaned off the main lens with an alcohol swab, and blew out any dust with compressed air. Now, without shooting and possibly wasting another roll of 35mm film, is there any way to tell if cleaning everything will fix the problem??? I'm heartbroken at the thought that this beloved camera may no longer work. Any suggestions for equivalent replacement 35mm film point-and-shoot cameras? Thanks for any help or insights anyone can provide.
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.
