All Olympus Users manuals

You just have to LOVE Olympus just for that!
Here is a list of all the instruction books for all their cameras. Almost all of them!

They seem to have every camera but mine.  I'm not sure what the DLX designation is but they have a manual for the Stylus Zoom but not the Stylus Zoom DLX with a 35 - 70mm lens.  The only thing I can think of is that the DLX may not have come with the remote control.  I bought mine when it was new and I don't remember it coming with a remote.  That was a few years ago and I may have lost it but I have no memory of it. 

It does say that it will default to ISO 100 for non DX-coded film.  I can use that for shooting expired film, just put some tape over the DX-code.

This is the manual that seems to be closest to mine:

I just checked and I should have written "nearly" all cameras.

I can't believe they don't have the manual for the Epic or my Infinity Twin (it's a twin lens Infinity with two different focal lengths in a Stylus like clamshell)

how does that work with two lenses?  Do they move into position?

This is definitely one of the funkier designs I've seen so far.
Inside the film chamber there is a mirror hidden on the top. When you push the switch, it drops down like on an SLR, only with the hinge on the front. Inside there is a periscope that redirects the light to the film.

Very ingenious design. The periscope design was also used on a camera by Kodak.

They've even got the manual for my awful OM101!

I might have to have a parting of the ways with it soon. It can do great photos, but it goes through a set of batteries every roll of film, almost.

Really let me down this morning.
