Olympus IS-1000 film camera


The Olympus IS-1000 (aka L-1000) is an autofocus 35mm single lens reflex camera with built-in 4× zoom lens. It was the first in Olympus' iS series of so-called 'Zoom Lens Reflex' cameras. The lens is a multi-coated 35-135mm f4.5/5.6 lens with 16 elements in 12 groups and including an ED (Extraordinary Dispersion) objective lens element, providing sharp and contrasty images of a quality approaching that of Nikon prime-lenses. The autofocus is a passive CCD line sensor. A "Power Focus" button allows manual focusing by means of electronic buttons.

Cameras in the early IS-series (IS-1000, IS-2000 and IS-3000) were capable of intelligently combining the built-in flash and the unique G-40 external flash (for example, handling direct fill-flash using the on-board flash unit and bounce flash using the G-40's swivelling/tilting head) - a feature very far ahead of its time and not to be seen until the most recent crop of high-end Digital SLRs.

The IS-1000 is also known as the IS-1 in the US. It requires DX-coded film canisters, and ISO cannot be set manually. Required batteries are 2x3V CR123A or equivalent.

This camera is in very good vintage condition and working well. Batteries are not included.
