Olympus XZ for the Young

Becky, Amazon
21 May 2014
  • Summary: This camera turned out to be a little complex for us. We should have gone for a simple "point and shoot." This is a point and shoot plus, plus, plus. We did order a written manual and even that confused us!

Does not hold a battery charge

  • Summary: I think I will love the camera because of it's ease of use. Being that I am 79 years old, I needed something that is easy for me to use. I have only had the camera a couple of days. The battery is the problem, it does not hold a charge, it should according the the reviews I read about it.

  • Summary: i've been using large sensor cameras for many months, so my perception of picture quality is a little skewed by that. This camera is small, convenient and flexible. It does both medium telephoto and macro well. An ILC would take at least two large lenses to accomplish that. UI is very pleasant.

  • Excerpt: The small sensor / high pixel density really lets this camera down!  If Olympus had chosen to go with a 9 or 10 megapixel sensor rather than the 12 megapixels, image quality could be far superior. Why do manufacturers keep cramming more pixels into a sensor than necessary.

  • Summary: I was wanting a point and shoot camera, nothing fancy. This was recommended by Which magazine and because my previous camera was a very similar Olympus, I went for this one. Touch screen can be turned off, thank goodness.

XZ-10 ... fine but flawed and not (I believe) money well spent

stefan 22, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: this is a fine camera that produces good results but it really is NOT easy to use and getting good 'consistent' results has proven (for me) to be troublesome and complicated. it might be that my poor experience with the camera is down (by and large) to user error..

Good...but

tallpete33, Amazon
25 July 2013
  • Summary: Having previously owned and really liked the excellent but slightly impractical XZ-1 (in stylish white), I jumped at the chance to get my hands on this one. I had traded my XZ-1 for a Sony HX10v purely for its usability and better zoom but missed the Olympus for its better lens and picture quality...
