Excellent camera, poor wifi feature

  • Summary: This camera garnished wonderful reviews yet seems to be flying below the radar. It has been a joy to use, and to learn how to use better. The zoom would be better if it were of a higher magnification. 10.7 really is OK but not great. However, the constant f2.8 aperture means it takes great photos in relatively low light in full zoom mode. Also, the thing weighs less than a pound. Absolutely love that automatic lens cover when the cameras is off.

Good results from a compact camera

  • Summary: Some perspective - I'm an amateur (and very casual) photographer, never used a DSLR - or a mirrorless camera. I do have and enjoy using an ancient 35mm Olympus OM1 SLR camera. My previous go-to digital camera was an Olympus XZ-1, so it's in comparison to the 35mm film camera and the XZ-1 when I talk about image quality. In the right conditions, I got some really good results with the XZ-1.

Solid All Around Camera

  • Excerpt: I bought the Stylus 1 to take to concert venues where I can't get in with my "professional" DSLR. No problem! The 28-300mm zoom lens and constant f/2.8 aperture are perfect for shooting live concerts. Small and unobtrusive, no one knows that you're able to easily and consistently capture DSLR quality shots. The auto focus is fast and accurate, and the menu system is reasonably simple to master.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

  • Excerpt: This camera is just too good for my age (born in 1981).  The technology has come so far, it's hard to catch up.  I'm using this with the tcon 17x teleconverter and the results are great. The smaller sensor does suffer a bit in lowlight, but even high-iso images have a sharpness I cannot easily describe.  While the image in the frame on the LCD looks moving, the IS is so good when you playback the image it's tack sharp.  For good available light, this cannot be beaten.

Great travel camera

  • Excerpt: Bought this for my wife who decided she wants to take pictures rather than waiting for me to take pictures! Size and weight near OMD models, well built, nice feature set, IQ very good, good zoom range, I personally like the Oly jpegs and there is raw for those who want to tinker. It's a really great all around camera and easy to carry in a small bag. It is a little large for the pocket but would fit in a jacket pocket. Two thumbs up!!
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD

Excellent Camera

  • Excerpt: I bought the Stylus 1 to take to a recent music festival and it performed flawlessly! It handled the difficult stage lighting beautifully. The fast constant f/2.8 aperture was great for freezing high energy stage performances. The compact size is unobtrusive, and the 300mm optical zoom is a great touch. My only complaint with the Stylus 1, as eel as most other cameras in its class, is that the smallest aperture is f/8. This isn't optimal for landscapes.

Very versatile camera

  • Excerpt: With a touch screen to set the focus point, both a lcd screen and a eye piece to view through a 10x zoom constant at f2.8, the camera can do just about everything i want it to do. The only draw back is it has so many bells and whistles and options, it is almost too much. I would have preferred less options. They make the menus cumbersome.The SonyRX100 is much easier to use and smaller, but it lacks the zoom range of this camera.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Has Great Macro Ability, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

Better than the NEX 6

Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: For 10 years I shot thousands of photos with my trusty Canon Powershot G3. I was always surprised at how sharp and clean the photos were. But I got to a point where I needed a real viewfinder, a bigger LCD, and better video capability. I also wanted an EVF so I could shoot videos using the viewfinder. After a lot of research, I settled on the Sony NEX 6 with the 16-50mm kit lens.
