Olympus XZ-1


Overall rating 8.5/10

The Olympus XZ-1 features a i.ZUIKO DIGITAL F1.8-2.5 lens, the brightest in a compact camera to date. Inside the camera is a high-sensitivity 1/1.63" CCD sensor and the same TruePic V image processor used by Olympus' DSLR cameras. Manual, aperture-priority and shutter-priority manual shooting modes give you superior control, together with the control ring around the lens.
