Review: Olympus XZ-1

Wired
29 September 2011
  • Pros: Elegant, portable camera body would fit right in at your next high-society party. Fast overall speed — you’ll never miss a shot of your friends acting like idiots. Image quality in good light rivals a digital SLR. Fun Art filters put Instagram to shame.
  • Cons: Vaunted f/1.8 lens not as effective in low light as we expected. Images are noisy at ISO 1600 and above. Anti-noise processing in JPEGs at high ISOs smoothes out detail. Clumsy lens cap configuration will drive you batty. Confusing menu system. Tiny camera buttons are made for pixies.

  • Excerpt: Amid all the clamour of Olympus’ and Panasonic’s support for the Micro Four Thirds format, it’s easy to forget that not everyone wants, needs or can fathom the intricacies of a DSLR or its kin. Canon has done very well with its G series fixed lens, compact digicams.
