Olympus µ[mju:]-II ZOOM 115
Known as the Olympus Stylus Epic ZOOM 115 in the US, this was a 35mm compact camera from the very successful mju/Stylus/Epic series, and was introduced by Olympus in 1999. It was made in China. There were several revisions of this camera, which was available in black or silver. A later model (2000) with the same lens had a brighter viewfinder and the VF suffix, indicating the "Visual Finder" which went black when the shutter fired. This was helpful in noisy locations, because it was difficult to tell if the picture had been taken on the earlier version. Some "DELUXE" examples of the ZOOM 115 included a panorama mask and/or QD (Quartzdate) date imprinting. The camera was revised once more in 2003 as the mju III 115 which used ED (extra dispersal) glass, for better contrast and reduced lens flare.
