Olympus AF 10 Super, an Easy to use 35mm Compact Film Camera

Olympus AF10 Super

The Olympus AF10 Super (Infinity Junior in the US) was released in 1987, a fully automatic 35mm film camera. It inherited the sliding cover design from the XA. Small and lightweight, with an integrated flash, it's smaller than the XA with flash attached.

Features and Operation of the AF10 Super

The camera's main features are:

  • 35mm F3.5 lens, 3 elements in 3 groups, autofocus with focus lock, min. focus 0,65m
  • Electronic shutter, 1/45-1/360s, flash ready and focus o.k. indication in the viewer window
  • Size 117x63x46, Weight 210 gr. without battery
  • 50-1600 ISO, automatic DX coding, self-timer, automatic film advance and (re-)spooling

This camera is easy to use. Autofocus is responsive and works well. Putting a film is easy as well, open the back, tear the film leader a bit further, drop the film and that's it. The camera spools the film automatically. As with most point and shoot ultra compacts, auto flash is set at start. There is no mid roll respool button.

The AF10 Super a good point and shoot camera. Sharp images, good autofocus, in a tiny little camera. When was released, it was one of the better models.
