The i-Zoom 75 is an APS film zoom-lens camera assembled in China for Olympus, announced in January 1999. The autofocus Olympus lens zooms from 28-75mm. Styling is a little like that of the Olympus mju II, with a sliding lens cover, doubling as an on-off switch, extending lens, transparent shutter release button, body tapering towards the users left, and a pop-up flash. There is a small LCD panel in the back for frame number and settings display. Film advance and rewind is automatic, motor driven.
