    Wow. That is really a find. Are those buttons or indicator lights in front of the shutter button? And that particular shade of plastic was quite a choice. I'll be on the lookout for more of this breed to share.

    I have no idea what are those red buttons for.
    Good question!

    PS: can there be anything else at this level?
    Quote, from the wiki: "They have fixed focus, poor-quality "optical" lenses; and while the aperture may be adjusted from (nominally) f/6.3 to f/16, there is a single, non-adjustable shutter speed."

    Yeah, Olympus made some weird stuff on the early digital camera days.
    Actually, except the digital SLRs, which looked like proper cameras, most early digital cameras looked... "digital" to me.
    Awkward, ugly.
    camera-front-angled.

    I always likes the Dimage.

    I had the pleasure of using one of these odd-looking things for awhile:

    41MQTJQNK5L._SX466_.

    The thing really did take nice images, and they held their value for a long time.

    Here are a couple I took with it:

    The abundant use of plastics starting in the 80s was definitely the low point in camera design!

    Would that make the abundant use of metal and wood in the 1880s the high point? :p

    Ha, I wonder in a decade or two, if the cheap mass-produced plastic look will make a style comeback? :D

    Thrift shop find!!

    This thing was in a box that included a flash and tripod. Notice the outstanding optics on that lens.
