Review: Olympus XZ-1

Wired
15 October 2011
  • Excerpt: However, Olympus only recently joined the fun. Yes, the company did produce some point-and-shoot style models with “fast” apertures back in the early 2000s — the chunky 4-megapixel Olympus C-4040, with its f/1.8 lens was one of our favorites at the time.
  • 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.

Olympus XZ-1 Review

Digital Photography School

  • 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. So it seems natural that Olympus should also want to engage with that market sector.

Olympus XZ-1 : Kompakt und lichtstark

netzwelt
4 October 2011
  • Summary: Lichstarke Premium-Kompaktkamera Bei der XZ-1 handelt es sich ohne Frage um die beste Kompaktkamera von Olympus. Sie überzeugt mit einer guten Bildqualität, einem lichtstarken Objektiv und einer angenehmen Bedienung, die auch manuelle Einstellungen zulässt. Im Vergleich mit den hochwertigen Kompaktkameras anderer Hersteller steht die XZ-1 jedoch nur auf einem hinteren Platz. Die unverbindliche Preisempfehlung von Olympus für die XZ-1 beträgt 479 Euro.
  • Pros: Lichstarkes Objektiv, Zubehörschuh
  • Cons: Texturverlust, Akkulaufzeit
