Just posted: Olympus XZ-1 sample photos. While we were attending CES in Las Vegas, we were offered a production-standard version of the latest enthusiast compact from Olympus. The 10Mp camera with its 28-112mm lens and impressive maximum aperture range of F1.8-2.5 sounded too good to resist. We carried it with us everywhere we went and have prepared a sample gallery of shots including a range of ISO settings and apertures to help give an insight into the camera's performance.

There are 24 images in the samples gallery. Please do not reproduce any of these images on a website or any newsletter / magazine without prior permission (see our copyright page). We make the originals available for private users to download to their own machines for personal examination or printing (in conjunction with this review), we do so in good faith, please don't abuse it.

Unless otherwise noted images taken with no particular settings at full resolution. A reduced size image (within 1024 x 1024 bounds) is provided to be more easily viewed in your browser. As always the original untouched image is available by clicking on this reduced image.
