DCRP Review: Olympus XZ-1
3.5 Star Review  DCResource - Mar 3, 2011

The Olympus XZ-1 is a fairly compact camera with a fast F1.8 lens, a larger-than-average CCD, a beautiful OLED display, numerous manual controls, fun Art Filters, and 720p video recording. Add in a handy control ring around the lens, wireless flash support, a nice playback mode, and plenty of optional extras, and you've got what is arguably Olympus' best compact in... well, ages. Like all products, the XZ-1 isn't perfect, and I found myself most annoyed with its highlight clipping, detail smudging and overall softness (due to noise reduction, not the lens), so-so movie mode, and "just okay" visibility on the OLED display when shooting outdoors.

3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Aug 8, 2011

THE GOOD: The <b>Olympus XZ-1</b> is nicely designed with a solid user interface and very good performance for its cohort. THE BAD: The XZ-1s image quality is good, but even shooting raw its not quite up to the level of its better competitors. THE BOTTOM LINE: Enjoyable to shoot and relatively fast, the Olympus XZ-1 only stumbles when it comes to photo quality, which is very good, but not uniformly excellent as one would expect from this class of camera.

Olympus XZ-1
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Feb 28, 2011

The Olympus XZ-1 is a compact, enthusiast-grade camera featuring a combination of a few gimmicks with a multitude of premium-level features. It features a 1/1.63” sensor with 10MP, a fast (f1.8 at 28mm to f2.5 at 112mm) 4X iZuiko Zoom Lens, and a maximum ISO up to 6400 for see-in-the-dark conditions. It borrows the TruPic V image processor from Olympus’s current Pen Micro Four Thirds dam, but adds a 3” OLED display on the back. Video wise, the XZ-1 supports 720p HD video at 30fps via a quick one-touch record button. The most standout features on the device are its manual controls, including a control ring and a wheel controller, for adjusting ISO, aperture, shutter, and more. It’s essentially a DSLR (function-wise), except in a more consumer-friendly package. Features 10MP CCD Sensor 4X iZuiko Zoom Lens 3” LCD OLED HD 720P VIDEOS Dual Image Stabilization Accessory Port In-Camera Art Filters Dual ... PROS: (1) large 1/1.6" 10MP sensor - largest amongst point and shoot cameras, better image quality and low light noise control (2) very bright 6 - 24mm lens (28-112mm equivalent) with an aperture of 1.8 - 2.8 for good collection of available light (3) fairly small and compact - can fit into a pocket unlike larger professional point and shoots, larger camera systems (4) " 621k dot OLED display (5) records video in 720p high definition ... CONS: (1) video quality lags behind image quality (2) lens is prone to flaring (3) no optical viewfinder
