release if the barrier has been left open over 4 hours.
Q: Will the camera operate without film?
A: Even if there is no film in the camera, if the lens
barrier is open, the shutter will release. Under low light
the flash will activate. If the lens barrier is closed, the
camera will not operate; and if the flash is activated in
rapid succession, the camera may get warm. (In the
latter case, pause between shots.)
Close and re-open the barrier once before shooting.
Q: The flash does not activate.
A: Check the flash mode.
Q: How long does the battery last?
A: Since lithium batteries have extra long lives, you can
shoot approximately 20 rolls of 24-exp. film. Using a
flash will shorten the life of a battery by about 50%;
thus if you use the flash less frequently, the battery will
last longer.
Q: The camera does not work in extremely cold weather.
What should I do?
A: In low temperature conditions, batteries temporarily
Q: The camera will not operate. What shall I do?
A: (1) Open the lens barrier fully. (2) Be sure the battery is
placed in the camera correctly and that the battery
power isn't low. (3) The camera will not operate when
the flash is recharging. (4) Be sure the subject is not
closer than the shooting distance. (5) The camera will
not operate until the camera back has been opened af-

ter the film has been rewound. (6) The shutter will not
Q: The pictures aren't sharp. What's wrong?
A: In the following examples, the camera's autofocus
mechanism may not function properly. Use the focus
lock mechanism when taking pictures of:
a. (1) Objects that reflect too much light (2) Black
objects (3) Objects through glass windows or wire
screens (4) Subjects in which flames or smoke are
included (5) Subjects in which the sun is part of the
b. Subjects in high - light situations, such as summer sea
shores or snowy mountains.
Q: Where can I buy lithium batteries?
A: At your local camera dealer or nearest Olympus
service center. When purchasing batteries, order
Duracell DL123A or Panasonic CR123A, or equivalent.
