  • Summary: Olympus has long been an industry leader when it comes to producing small cameras. Their “Pen” series of 35mm half-frame cameras were small before small was cool, and the Olympus OM1 was the very first downsized SLR.
  • Pros: fast f2.8 fixed maximum aperture, excellent image quality, fun to use.
  • Cons: The screw-in lens cover, slight menu complexity, minor video start/stop lag

Olympus STYLUS 1

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Strong f/2.8 (constant) lens, Easy-to-pair Wi-Fi, Terrific EVF, Speedy
  • Cons: Indoor/overcast images aren’t as sharp, Convoluted menu system, Expensive

  • Conclusion: With a 10.7x zoom lens and a built-in ND filter feature, the Stylus 1 is a powerful camera. It enables you to shoot in a host of situations and it's compact enough to fit in a jacket pocket or handbag. That versatility comes at a price though.

  • 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

  • Summary: Olympus-kameraets prætentiøse design skuffer ikke. Med en stor og skarp elektronisk søger, fornemme 10,7 x zoom og fremragende brugervenlighed kan dette kamera bruges til næsten alt.
  • 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.
