  • 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.
  • Cons: Synlig støj ved høj ISO og moderat billedkvalitet på video er det eneste, der trækker ned.
