The Olympus Infinity Mini (AF-1 Mini outside of the U.S., OZ 1 in Japan) of 1995 was a small weatherproof, fully automatic compact camera. It, along with the AF-10 Mini, revived a range from the 1980's that were known for their advanced autofocus and metering as well as their luxurious design and sleek styling. This incarnation of the 'AF' series was placed between the entry-level 'Trip' series and the high-end μ [mju:] series and the Infinity Mini shared many technical features with the μ series cameras.
