Some users are looking for the model [Olympus Stylus 140 DIX]. Well, I could not find that specific model in Olympus website or in the user manual. Maybe you mean: Olympus Stylus 140 DLX instead? ;)

Some information on the DLX (Deluxe) models:

  1. As all Stylus models do, the Deluxe series makes photography simple by offering great features in a stylish, compact camera. But they also include some extra features that help take that photographic simplicity one step further.
  2. Exclusive Visual Confirmation Finder

    Have you ever been unsure whether you took a picture or not? You saw a great photo opportunity, thought you pressed down on the shutter button, but wasnt really sure if you did or not. Well worry no more. Olympus exclusive Visual Confirmation Finder (VF) momentarily darkens the lens (as seen through the viewfinder) once the shutter button is pressed, clearly indicating to you that your photo was taken so youll know you got the shot you wanted when you wanted it. (Feature available with the Stylus Epic Zoom 170, Stylus Zoom 140, Stylus Epic Zoom 115 and Stylus Epic Zoom 80 cameras.)

  3. Panorama Mode

    The Deluxe series offers both Standard and Panorama operation. Depending on your preference, you can capture photographs in standard form or you can take panorama shots, a great tool when shooting landscapes or group photos. And the Deluxe lets you switch back and forth to the panorama mode at any point on the film roll, so you can get panorama images back in 4 x 11.5 prints.

  4. Good as Gold

    Although every model in the Stylus family is visually appealing, the Deluxe series is especially stylish thanks to the elegant gold detailing on the camera body. This gold color gives the Deluxe series an aura of class and sophistication, just like the impressive features it contains.

  5. Accessories

    What good is a camera if you cant use it? We dont know! Thats because the Deluxe series comes complete with the accessories you need to get started right away, including a camera case, strap, batteries and instruction manual.
