Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Unleash your creative side with the first-ever Olympus X Series camera. Designed for those who want the quality of an SLR in a high-end point-and-shoot format, this camera provides a new, easy-to-use outlet for artistic expression. With the XZ-1 you'll capture high-quality still images and HD videos in any shooting environment thanks to its fast, super-bright, built-in Olympus iZuiko lens and its large, super-sensitive CCD sensor.

Olympus XZ-1 Highlights

Fast, super-bright f1.8 iZuiko 4x wide lens
The iZuiko f1.8-2.5 6.0-24mm (28-112mm equivalent angle of view in 35mm cameras) digital lens is a newly-developed 4x compact version of the legendary, high-quality ZUIKO Digital lenses featured with Olympus DSLRs. With a minimum aperture of f1.8 at wide-angle and a maximum aperture of f2.5 at telephoto, this lens assures fast shutter speeds for sharp low-light images. This aperture range also allows photographers to take portraits that highlight the subject by defocusing the background, a capability not possible in most compact cameras. The lens is specifically designed for clear, high-quality photographic performance with minimal ghosting or flare.

High-sensitivity CCD
Compared to existing 1/2.33-inch, 14-megapixel CCDs, the light-reception area of each pixel of the 1/1.63-inch, 10-megapixel CCD featured in the XZ-1 has been doubled. Superb, low-noise images can be shot even in dimly lit situations such as night scenes and indoor shots.

Advanced manual controls
The XZ-1 offers advanced manual controls that experienced photographers expect from larger digital SLR cameras. But, with the XZ-1, advanced features are easy to use. A control ring around the front of the lens and the wheel controller on the back provide immediate access to the most important manual settings like ISO, aperture and shutter speed to make it easy to adjust the camera on the move.

Olympus PEN E-PL2 highlights from Amazon.com
New, 3-inch OLED monitor
Whether composing still images or HD videos, photographers will appreciate the XZ-1's sharp 3.0-inch OLED monitor to frame and show off still images and High Definition (HD) movies in detailed 720p. The LCD displays 610,000 dots in vivid color, reproduces colors and shades more accurately with deeper black tones, and consumes less power. The monitor also provides a wide viewing angle ensuring that images can be composed from even the most obscure angles.

Low-light performance
The XZ-1 has an easily accessible built-in pop-up flash to illuminate low-light subjects, reduce red-eye and fill in dark areas. The camera also features an AF illuminator to make it simple to focus in low-light situations. Additionally, Dual Image Stabilization further assures you'll get the shot you want while holding the camera: Mechanical Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization compensates for camera movement in low-light conditions when shutter speeds are slower while Digital Image Stabilization freezes the action with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds that prevent blurry images often caused by a moving subject. On top of all this, the XZ-1 also offers a Low-Light mode which automatically adjusts the ISO sensitivity up to ISO 3200 to take sharp full-resolution photos in dark places.

HD movie with HDMI control
Shooting video is as easy as ever with the new Olympus XZ-1 camera. The camera captures all the action in crisp 720p HD video at 30 frames-per-second. The XZ-1's easy-to-reach record button on the back of the camera body makes recording videos a breeze. If you're about to snap a photo and you realize a video would capture the spirit of the scene even better, simply press the record button and instantly you're capturing videos! The XZ-1 makes sharing your content easier than ever. Just connect it to your HDTV with an optional HDMI cable and use your HDTV's remote to control playback functions and navigate the camera's menus from the comfort of your couch.

TruePic V Image Processor
The XZ-1 pairs a high sensitivity 10 megapixel CCD sensor with the TruePic V Image Processor to produce clear and colorful photos using all the pixel information from each image to provide the best digital images possible. The image processor is noted for accurate natural color, true-to-life flesh tones, brilliant blue skies and precise tonal expression; it also lowers image noise in photos shot at higher ISO settings (ISO 100 to ISO 3200), enabling great results in low-light situations.

Hot shoe and accessory port
To expand the camera's versatility, the XZ-1 includes an accessory port that is compatible with select PEN camera accessories. Photographers can attach optional accessories like the SEMA-1 external microphone adapter, the VF-2 electronic viewfinder, or the newly introduced MAL-1 macro light. These optional accessories easily slide into the camera's accessory port and hot shoe.

Additional Features

10-megapixel resolution
The 10 million pixels in the high-resolution CCD create superior image quality. Create poster-sized prints without losing a single detail.

Large, high-sensitivity CCD
Providing the best image quality ever in a compact Olympus camera, the large 1/1.63-inch CCD enables greater dynamic range and smoother gradations from highlights to shadows.

4x iZuiko zoom lens
Based on the standards of Olympus DSLR lenses, the wide aperture of the iZuiko f1.8-2.5 allows a rich and vibrant range of photographic expression. It allows faster shutter speeds in low light--and it allows for a shallower depth of field than most compact point-and-shoot cameras.

HD movie 720p
A simple, one-touch button allows you to record movies with amazing clarity in high-definition, right from your camera.

Accessory port
The XZ-1 includes a port for accessories including the SEMA-1 Microphone adapter set and the VF-2 live-finder, a detachable electronic viewfinder. The viewfinder easily slides onto the camera's accessory port and hot shoe to provide 1.15x magnification for a 100% field of view. The VF-2 rotates up 90 degrees which is useful when shooting subjects from challenging angles. The external accessory port also allows for connection with the SEMA-1 external microphone adapter set for enhanced audio capture.

In-camera Art Filters for movies and still images
With six in-camera Art Filters (Pop Art, Soft Focus, Grainy Film, Pin Hole, Diorama and Dramatic Tone) you can explore your artistic side while taking both still shots and HD video. The Art Filters can be applied as you shoot, no additional software required.

Dual Image Stabilization
Dual Image Stabilization combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds to capture crisp, clear images in any situation.

New, easy-to-use Live Guide control
Seeing the results before you shoot can change the way you take a picture. Want more vivid or muted color in your shot? Want warmer or cooler hues? Want a brighter or darker subject, or a sharper or softer background? Or maybe you want to capture the fast-moving action of your subject with a little artistic blur, or perhaps freeze the action? Simply set the camera to iAuto, press OK to engage Live Guide, then press the up and down arrows on the back of the E-PL1 to easily slide through numerous photographic effects. Make adjustments and watch the LCD as the effects are made live -- before the image is captured! Live Guide also features a Tips section on how to compose a shot or shoot kids, pets, flowers and more.

In-camera PANORAMAv
Captures three images and stitches them together to create one amazing panoramic picture by simply pressing the shutter button and slowly panning across a panoramic scene.

AF Live View with AF Tracking
AF Live View works as seamlessly as a point-and-shoot to display subjects, in focus, on the LCD the instant the shutter is pressed half way. AF Tracking locks your subject into focus right on the LCD, and constantly adjusts focus and brightness whether you or your subject is moving. With this mode, a simple push of the AF button and shutter release enables you to keep fast-moving and unpredictable subjects in focus.

Advanced Face Detection
Face Detection automatically focuses on your subjects' faces and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.

TruePic V Image Processor
In addition to more detail, the image sensor, combined with the next-generation TruePic V Image Processor, delivers excellent dynamic range, accurate color fidelity and reduced noise, all the way up to 3200 ISO.

Underwater Housing (optional accessory)
The XZ-1's compact design makes it the perfect companion for all of your dive trips. The PT-050 underwater case has been customized for the XZ-1 and is waterproof to a depth of 40 meters (approximately 130 feet). With its durable, high-quality polycarbonate construction, this Olympus housing protects the camera from water while also cushioning it from knocks and bumps on land.

update: I really enjoy this camera. It is fun to use and very adaptable to any shooting situation. I find myself shooting a lot more in Manual than I expected. The exposure indicator on the front makes that possible to have the right shutter speed and aperture combo based on your ISO selection. iAUTO mode does a great job for those who feel more comfortable with no adjustments. I took about 300 shots (600 writes to a 16 GB 30MB/sec SanDisk Ultra SD card, 1 RAW and 1 High Res Jpeg at the same time) before the battery gave in. The 3" OLED screen is good enough to "talk back" to the Texas bright sun, which was one potential concern since it does not come with a viewfinder and I did not want to spend the additional money for the available optional unit. I also recommend to buy a second battery Olympus LI-50B Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery for Select Olympus Digital Cameras - Retail Packaging(http://www.amazon.com/review/RP3Y4CKKCDRCB/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm) and the following leather case COSMOS Black Leather Case Cover Bag For Olympus XZ1 XZ-1 Camera + Cosmos cable tie(http://www.amazon.com/review/R2ZTHOZ11ALJ2M/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B005IJTNI8&linkCode=&nodeID=&tag=). If closer than ~2 ft to subjects, set the AF to Macro. You will still have zoom. In super Macro zoom is not possible, but you can take pics of bugs as close as ~ half an inch. The camera has settings for bracketing in exposure settings and white balance. You can also set custom settings for one mode dial position. What a versatile, complete, fun, high quality compact camera!

Color Name: White
After shooting with this camera for about a month now, I'm still glad I bought it, but I am a bit disappointed with the video.

I heard some bad reviews about the XZ1 video, but you seem to get some bad reviews with any camera. Here's what I found with mine:
1) Auto-focus on video is pretty much unusable. You get random focus jumps during the video even when you and your subject are barely moving. I tried all sorts of settings changes to deal with this, but I found none that work reliably (except manual focus).
This is not as bad as I thought it would be. I find that most of the videos I take are short and don't require focus adjust. But it does require you to switch between auto for stills and manual for video. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a dedicated video button. I find I some times mess up when switching and wind up taking stills in manual focus, or getting a random bad video. Seems to me that Olympus must know the auto focus is hosed. Why not make video manual-only? Or at least give a menu option to set that up?
2) You get some vertical lines on the video and while in 'preview' if you have a bright light source in the frame. They do not show up in the still pics though. It's not outrageously bad, and other cameras have the same issue, but I figured I'd point it out.

So short answer is if you must have great video look elsewhere (try maybe the Panasonic LX5?). The XZ1 video is good enough for me to use when I HAVE to have a video, but that's about it.

But the stills on the XZ1 camera are fantastic. It really shines when taking pictures of kids indoors with so-so lighting and no flash. And if you like taking close ups of flowers, prepare to be amazed.

Was pretty torn between this and the Panasonic Lumix LX5, but ended up with this one because I already owned an Olympus camera that used the same battery and also had an external charger, so I'd essentially have an extra battery already. Also, a big selling point on this camera was the lens, even though I'd have preferred the 24mm wide angle on the LX5, the depth of field you can get with the lower aperture range on the XZ-1's 28mm lens seemed better, plus the aperture was more favorable throughout the entire zoom range of the XZ-1. After using the camera for a little while, I was very impressed at the image quality it produced. Overall, it was a great camera, but I ended up returning it because the price dropped over 60 dollars from the time I bought it before the return window closed, and I found an LX5 for only 306 dollars from amazon warehouse deals. It seemed to me that the difference in price was well worth whatever differences there were between the cameras, and I knew I'd prefer that 24mm lens. However, after having the LX5 for a few days now, I cant quite reproduce the excellent image quality and depth of field I got from the XZ-1. But, with the difference in price, I may just end up living with the LX5, it's by no means any slouch, and I think the menu system and flexibility of the options is better than the XZ-1. And as much as people seem to love that control ring around the lens, I didnt find that I missed it at all with the adequately intuitive controls on the LX5.

One last thing, be aware that the white version of the XZ-1 appears to be made with more plastic, as from what I understand, the body of the black version is metal. So to me, the build quality of the white version wasnt as good, and as cool as I thought it looked initially, in practice, I felt like a bit of tool when using it in public and would definitely go with the black version if I were to ever purchase again.
