I told my girlfriend to look for an Olympus Stylus Epic for me from thrift stores, she couldn’t find the one with the prime. But she manage to find a Zoom 80 for $2 in VERY good shape, looks new. I had my doubts because its a zoom, not the prime version, but its AF and knew it has a good flash system. What the hell, had a fresh CR123A in it, so, I popped a roll of Tri X in it. (Developed in D76 1 to 1)
See that smirk on dudes face probably thinkin’ he’s all bad with his crappy canon digital body and sigma lens while I’m taking a photo of him with my Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 80 loaded with Tri X. He wouldn’t even know what hit him. Its called Epic for a reason.
Last frame of the roll, I kinda missed it since my hand was on the flash so the camera wouldn’t fire. When I finally got it figured out it was a Little late. But the dog was dragging the sled downhill, it was rather funny.
I think the Zoom 80 lives up to the Name Epic. Not bad even comparing to his big brother, The Stylus Epic.
