The Olympus Superzoom 70G and 80G both feature a slim, contemporary design. The Superzoom 70G and 80G are both equipped with high-performance lenses [38-70 mm and 38-80 mm respectively] and include aspherical lens elements. In place of a fixed focussing mechanism a new 464-step autofocus system provides flexibility for image composition.

Furthermore, to prevent the disappointment of blurred images the shutter release will lock if a subject is not within the minimum focusing distance. The flash system of the Superzoom 70G and 80G offer five versatile flash modes. In addition to an Auto flash function, which fires automatically in low or backlight conditions, a comprehensive choice of manual flash modes should provide optimum illumination whatever the lighting conditions.

Weighing only 210g and measuring a compact 118x64x47mm, the user-friendly Superzoom 70G and 80G are ideal for creative photographers of every level.

Other key features include -
* Real-image zoom viewfinder for straightforward and accurate image composition, especially for close-up shots
* Electronic self-timer with 12 second delay
* Automatic film speed setting allows the cameras to automatically adjust to suit the speed of the film used: ISO 100, 200, 400 or 800.
