Good camera without enough durability

Kris Tuttle, Amazon
7 July 2015
  • Summary: I like this camera - mostly for video on a tripod. But it's delicate. I've already had it in for warranty service. Unlike my bigger DSLR which can take a beating this feels like if you get any dirt on it that'll be the end.

  • Summary: Camera focus is super fast compared to my other cameras (DSLR, 4/3). I'm pretty picky with my cameras and had to return this one because of the proprietary charging cable.

Fatally flawed

Sigismund Vortunk "Berserker", Amazon
4 May 2015
  • Summary: I was considering buying this camera until I discovered one fatal flaw in the specs that all others should consider too: There is no HDR feature, nor any dynamic range enhancement like so many other cameras.

Needs to go back to the drawing board.

flyfisherchick, Amazon
14 September 2014
  • Summary: What we don't like: 1) Interval (time lapse) shooting is limited to 10 frames. 10 frames! That's essentially worthless. 2) Lens barrel isn't threaded for filters; (clumsy) accessory barrel must be purchased.

Clever is good, don't try to be too clever.

A3 "Private Tay", Amazon
27 August 2014
  • Summary: Pros: a. Constant f2.8 from 28mm to 300mm b. Camera automatically goes from EVF to LCD c. Can set metering mode using f2 button Cons: a. Bit dubious construction - great problem closing the battery lid after opening it (and I do this a lot because I don't use wifi to download pictures) b.

No Wide Angle

CJ, Amazon
26 July 2014
  • Summary: This a great camera in many ways, but Olympus claims the zoom lens is equivalent to 28mm to 300mm. At 28mm, this camera should show significant wide angle capability, but that is false. This camera has no wide angle capability at all.

Two big issues - and one is a deal breaker

B. Sanger, Amazon
26 May 2014
  • Summary: The photos that came from the Stylus 1 were perfectly fine. The zoom range, while significant, is not as long as I need for my general purposes. Having said that, I probably would have kept the Stylus 1 if not for two big issues.

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Stylus 1 to complement my two Canons - a G1X and an SX230HS - with the hope of replacing my SX230HS and giving it to a relative as a gift. I tested the camera alongside my SX230 over the weekend in various shooting situations.
