The XZ-1 is Olympus' entry to the newly revitalized enthusiast camera sector. It features a 10MP sensor that is 60% larger than most compact cameras to offer improved low-light performance. This capability is boosted by the brightest lens on any current compact - a 28-112mm equivalent with a maximum aperture range of F1.8-2.5. These features, combined with a lens-surrounding control dial and P,A,S,M modes makes it an enjoyable photographers' camera whether as an only-camera or a more convenient companion to a DSLR. Its lens is bright enough to offer similar control over depth-of-field to a DSLR with a typical kit lens and, though it can't compete in low light, its image quality in daylight is competitive too. A VGA-equivalent 3.0" OLED screen and fast, simple interface complete an impressive little camera.

The XZ-1 combines simple direct controls with an excellent lens to create probably the best photographers' compact currently available.

Not so good for: Users wanting direct access buttons for every function.
