XZ-1 vs TG-810
Enthusiast and keen photographers, whether they be upgraders from point-and-shoots or seasoned DSLR users. Whether as an only camera or as a more pocketable backup for DSLR owners.
They comare it to the PEN series which is basiclly a small slr.
There are only four controls on the top of the camera - the power button, the shutter release, zoom rocker and mode dial. Like the E-PL cameras, the XZ-1 has iAuto point-and-shoot mode (combining the Live Guide simplified interface with automatic scene recognition). However, for this camera, it's the P,A,S, M modes, the Art Filters and the Low Light modes that are likely to be most-used - those that give most creative control.
These controlls are seen on an slr.
There's a bright lens, of course, with the XZ-1 becoming the first of the company's compacts to ever wear its respected 'Zuiko'
SLR type lens.
Despite the falling price of entry-level DSLRs and the arrival of their more compact mirrorless competitors.
