Olympus Stylus 1 Review

Digitaltrends
15 February 2014
  • Conclusion: As we said, we love little cameras like the Stylus 1. No, they aren’t as convenient as a smartphone, but if you want good image quality in a compact – and are willing to carry two devices – the Stylus 1 is the type of camera you want if you aren’t shopping for a DSLR or mirrorless camera.

Olympus STYLUS 1

Camera Labs
1 February 2014
  • Summary: The STYLUS 1 is also very compact, and when testing it alongside rivals like Panasonic's Lumix FZ200 and Sony's RX10, I kept being surprised how much smaller it was. Unlike those two models, you really can squeeze the STYLUS 1 into a smaller coat pocket, and comparatively speaking it virtually...
  • Pros: Very compact body with great controls., Built-in 28-300mm f2.8 equivalent zoom., Lower noise than models with 1/2.3in sensors., Large and detailed electronic viewfinder., Tilting touchscreen display., Built-in Wifi with great smartphone control.
  • Cons: Optics are a little soft at edges at wider focal lengths., Basic movie capabilities., No in-camera HDR or panorama modes., No focus peaking., No interval timer., Lens out-gunned by Lumix FZ200., Quality, build & movies better on Sony RX10.

Olympus Stylus 1 review

  • Conclusion: There's no getting around it: the Olympus Stylus 1 is a pricey bit of kit. But is it worth it? Absolutely. Because it's an camera that enables. There's that significant zoom lens with a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture and fast autofocus which saw us snapping some lovely shots.
  • Pros: Long zoom with f/2.8 constant maximum aperture, excellent built-in viewfinder, dual function lens ring, fast autofocus, top-spec design
  • Cons: Bulky, expensive, no focus peaking for manual focus, would like wider-angle lens, image quality not great at higher ISO settings

  • Conclusion: The Olympus Stylus 1 has the dimensions of a compact camera and a fixed zoom lens reminiscent of a traditional bridge camera. It's one of a recent spate of innovative and deceptively powerful cameras, such as the Panasonic GM1, that are gradually chipping away at the boundaries between traditional...

  • Summary: Hvis man vil have et lille kamera, der kan det hele, så er Stylus 1 måske det helt rigtige.
  • Pros: Olympus’ lille Stylus 1 er et kompaktkamera, der kan det meste. Superzoom og god lysstyrke kombineret med en fremragende søger og god brugervenlighed gør det alle pengene værd. Et smart valg for dem, der rejser meget, og som synes, at andre kompaktkameraer har for mange begrænsninger.
  • Cons: Synlig støj ved høj ISO og moderat billedkvalitet på video er det eneste, der trækker ned.

Test: Olympus Stylus 1 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
20 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Mit der Olympus Stylus 1 liefern die Japaner im Test eine überzeugende Bridge-Kamera ab. Sie punktet vor allem mit hoher Lichtstärke und Geschwindigkeit. Die Bildqualität kann sich ebenfalls sehen lassen, aber der Sensor schwächelt bei höheren Empfindlichkeiten.
  • Pros: Lichtstarkes Zoom, Wertige Verarbeitung, Bildqualität bei Tageslicht, Schneller Autofokus, Elektronischer Sucher
  • Cons: Rauschen und Weichzeichnung ab ISO 800
