Description:

Olympus Ecru is a quirky-looking analogue snapper from the 1990s, the all-automatic, all-white Olympus Ecru is certainly one of the most interesting and compact cameras you can add to your collection.
It may look more like a sophisticated surveillance camera, but this unusually-designed camera was introduced by Olympus in 1991 as a limited edition concept camera. Called Olympus Ecru, this all-automatic compact camera got its name from the French word for "unbleached" and was intended to be a symbol for "living an intellectually enhanced life as natural as unbleached cloth." Only 20,000 units of this quirky, white-bodied camera were made, with 10,000 sold in Japan and the other 10,000 overseas.
Apart from its unusual design (including a polished aluminium lens cap), users have noted that it's basically a Olympus Stylus Infinity fitted into the white body fashioned by industrial designer Naoki Sakai.
