Olympus Stylus 1

Imaging Resource
7 March 2014
  • Conclusion: It's rare when a new class of camera comes our way, but that's just what the Olympus Stylus 1 is. Yes, it's a bridge camera, but in a compact body with a long, constant aperture zoom that still yields high quality images at lower ISOs and at a reasonable price, which does put it in a whole new...
  • Pros: Bright, sharp 28-300mm eq. lens, Very good image quality at low ISOs, Small and lightweight for the quality output it can deliver, Reasonably priced by comparison, Ergonomically sound with a solid, professional feel, Built-in high-res EVF with eye detect, Tilting high-res touchscreen LCD, Highly ...
  • Cons: Lens doesn't go as wide or long as some competitors, Corners are a bit soft at wide angle, ISO settings over 800 yield noise and lack of fine detail, Base ISO yields less fine detail than cameras with larger sensors, Mixed results with continuous AF, Can struggle to focus in low light, No in-came...

The Olympus Stylus 1 is a very accomplished camera from a veteran manufacturer, and can compete on equal terms with the other cameras you’ll see on the...

29 November 2013
  • Summary: The Olympus Stylus 1 super-zoom is a successful marriage of the company's high-end XZ-2 compact and the flagship OM-D E-M1 compact system camera, whilst offering a fast 28-300mm lens in a small and relatively lightweight body complete with an EVF and tilting LCD screen that rather amazingly can be...

Stylus 1

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
16 March 2014
  • Conclusion: In der Praxis weiß die Olympus Stylus 1 vor allem wegen ihrer sehr guten Ausstattung zu gefallen, wie aber schneidet die Digitalkamera im Labor ab? Der in der Olympus Stylus 1 (Datenblatt) verwendete CMOS-Bildsensor ist 1/1,7 Zoll groß und löst 11,9 Megapixel auf.
  • Pros: Akzeptable Bildqualität für eine Digitalkamera mit 1/1,7"-Sensor, Relativ großer Brennweitenbereich (28 bis 300mm nach KB), Lichtstarke Blendenöffnung von F2,8 über den gesamten Brennweitenbereich, Kompakt und leicht für die gebotene Leistung, Sehr effektiver optischer Bildstabilisator, Die Digit...
  • Cons: Stärker abfallende Bildränder im Weitwinkelbereich, Bei höheren Sensorempfindlichkeiten ist die Bildqualität leicht unterdurchschnittlich (für 1/1,7")
