Olympus AF-10 Twin Overview
The Olympus AF-10 Twin is basically the cheaper, non-weatherproof version of the Olympus Infinity Twin. Like the Infinity Twin, the AF-10 Twin has two lenses (a wide-angle 35mm f/3.5 and a telephoto 70mm f/6.3) that you can switch between with a touch of that wonderful, tiny red button on the top.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a complete sucker for dual lens cameras so I just couldn’t pass up the chance to get this AF-10 Twin despite it being fairly dull and pedestrian otherwise. Strangely, I bought this camera at a thrift store just a few days after I found its sister camera, the aforementioned Infinity Twin, at a completely different thrift store about an hour away.
The AF-10 Twin retailed for ¥30,000 in 1991 which, if my calculations are correct, is roughly $370 in today’s currency. It’s interesting to look back on outdated technology and realize just now much people were willing to pay for things like this camera back then. I’m sure we’ll be doing the same thing to today’s products twenty years from now.
