Great for low light conditions

Peter Chou, Amazon
17 November 2014
  • Summary: Second Olympus camera, I purchased this mostly because of the f1.8 lens. Great for low light conditions, but these days, I don't have the capacity to carry a camera around, and if I do, I just take my pro DSLR Nikon or Canon. For a point and shoot, it gives you pretty good shots, sadly I never learned how to use it because of my limited time.

Amzing, a lot of fun!

  • Summary: I've always loved photography, and with my XZ-1 I enjoy shooting photos even more! Definitely the best compact camera among all I've had. Before purchasing this I always carried my digital SLR wherever I go for vacation, but now this is my primary camera. My favorite part is the art filter, which makes my vacation x10 more fun! Olympus customer service was also very helpful.

Great pics on shore and under water

Luis Paulo de A Porto, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: This camera is great for this price range. It's compact but delivers great pictures. The lens are very bright, with F1.8 apperture. That makes a great camera for night photos even without flash. It's easy and simple to use. I also use with under water housing when i'm scuba diving. The pics are amazing. So much better when I compare with the Olympus Tough. I own a Canon 650D but now, with the XZ-1 I normally leave my Canon at home on my scuba trips.

Amazing

  • Summary: I have had this camera for 2 years, and it awesome. I think the best thing I can do to show you how well this camera works is to show you my gallery of photos. Hopefully amazon permits this: [...] It can do things a DSLR cant, like High Speed Sync Flash to fill in shadows on backlit subjects. I do recommend getting the screw on flip open lens cap. The lens on this camera is really where the money is made.

My DSLR *hates* this camera

JorgeLR1, Amazon
15 December 2013
  • Summary: Fantastic low-light pics. The f1.8 lens comes in handy. I often just opt to go without flash. It also shoots RAW. I have to say, since I got this camera, I usually leave my big Nikon DSLR at home (for indoor/family get togethers). Don't get me wrong, It's no DSLR, but a very capable alternative when you don't want to lug around the big camera bag. I also love the flexibility of Aperture/shutter priority modes.

User Review

Longin Adamczyk, DP Review
2 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I own it since it came out. Took thousands of pictures from subarctic to subtropics. It never disappoint you, either quality or overall mechanical soundness! As a backup I am using e620 with the multiple lenses, although, XZ1 has been used most of the time. I think the quality of the video should be a bit higher, nonetheless in the full light it creates half decent .avi format video clips.
