  • Excerpt: One look at a listing of cameras in the marketplace these days shows that the competition within the point-and-shoot camera market is as intense as any consumer battle you can find.

Olympus XZ-1 Review

Digitaltrends
19 June 2011
  • Excerpt: The XZ-1 is a new addition to the Olympus lineup, and packages the power of a DSLR into…well, almost point-and-shoot size. While the device might be a little much for some pockets (not all) to handle, its capability and simplicity should at the very least cause pause before your next camera...

Review of the Olympus XZ-1 Digital Camera

techlicious.com
25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: The Olympus XZ-1 is a compact camera that sells for $500. Is that completely insane? Maybe not, if you value the ability to take indoor photos without firing off a harsh, intrusive, skin-tone-unfriendly flash.

Olympus XZ-1 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
7 April 2011
  • Conclusion: What Olympus has produced with the XZ-1 is a camera worth very strong consideration. Not just to be weighed up against its direct competitors (S95, G12, LX5, EX-1, P7000) but as an alternative to its own mirror-less PEN range.
