The constant aperture of f2.8 across the zoom range produces pro images with beautiful, artistic defocused backgrounds and crisp subjects. This large diameter lens with focal lengths of 28-300mm enables you to capture distant subjects in dim scenes with exceptional clarity and vividness. This bright lens maintains the same quality standards as our Zuiko Digital interchangeable lenses.
TAKE MORE CONTROL OF YOUR IMAGES WITH A LARGE, HI-DEFINITION EVF.
With a 1.15x viewfinder magnification rate and 100% field of view, the 1.44 million-dots resolution EVF is perfectly positioned on the optical axis for eye-level composition and live view of Exposure Compensation, White Balance, Art Filters and more. Thanks to the eye sensor, the live view display automatically switches from the rear monitor to the viewfinder instantly as you bring the camera to your eye.
Borrowing from the design heritage of the legendary Olympus OM series and the silhouette of the award-winning OM-D E-M5, the STYLUS 1 expresses elegance and redefines premium. The finely crafted dials and buttons and textured soft grip remarkably redefine the premium design that an ultra-compact pro-quality long zoom deserves. The STYLUS 1 offers intuitive control and comfortable operations to maximize your productivity and minimize fatigue.

The 3.0-inch tilt-touch LCD screen has an amazing resolution of 1.04 million dots to reproduce vivid accurate colors while providing superb outdoor and low light visibility. You have freedom and flexibility for both high-angle and low-angle shooting thanks to the tilting monitor that can be adjusted upward to 80 degrees and downward to 50 degrees. Change the brightness, color saturation and tone directly on the screen, swipe from image to image on the screen during playback and adjust camera settings—all with just a touch. The lightning-fast touch shutter release with autofocus lets you focus and shoot instantaneously.
INSTANT ACCESS TO YOUR MOST FREQUENTLY USED SETTINGS.
From perfect zooming or fine manual focusing in analog mode, to adjustment of the aperture, shutter speed and more in digital mode—it’s easy with a simple twist of the hybrid control ring around the lens. Switch between analog and digital modes with the dedicated lever on the front of the camera. The STYLUS 1 features two customizable function buttons for easy access to your favorite settings. When used in combination with the control ring and sub dial, you can access nearly all camera functions without taking your eye away from the viewfinder.

This will need to be a multi-part review but I wanted to post my first resolution test results and a few impressions before Christmas buyers ( at least those like me :-). I was delighted that under full daylight conditions the Stylus 1 compared favorably to my full frame Nikon at the extreme zoom range (300mm equiv.). At mid range it was close to my Panasonic GH2 and my Sony RX100 (100mm equiv.) but slightly less. And at wide angle (28mm equiv.) it was slightly better than all but the Nikon. If the subject is strong and the shooting conditions good I doubt any of my friends would notice a difference between any of these cameras.
Another favorite use for me is macro photography, orchids to insects. I tested the Nikon Coolpix P7800 and was very disappointed in it's focus speed and it's macro capability. Low light focus was not good but the real disappointment for me was that it only does macro at full wide angle (same for the Sony RX100). And while the Coolpix macro focus kept hunting the Stylus was quick and solid. Macro for the Stylus is a 1" subject fills the frame horizontally. Another important feature for me is good close focusing at modest zooms and here the Stylus was very good (a 1.5" subject filling the frame at a better zoom/working distance). (Many will note that these are advantages of a smaller sensor.)
The Stylus feels substantial, not quite as rock solid as the amazing little Sony RX100, but much more solid than the larger super zooms I have used. It has a bit of a retro look and feel that I enjoy, more angular, the viewfinder protruding toward the back. The EVF is wonderful for such a small camera. Focus / shooting speed are very good, outdoor color natural for my few shots so far, lots of control and a wonderful manual focus system (really a treat).Read more ›
I got this camera a few days ago so this is a REALLY preliminary look at it with some initial observations which I'll add to as I use it more.
First the odd: I use panorama mode fairly often and I was surprised to see the panorama mode in the Stylus 1 is the same as in my old Olympus SP 565 UZ (circa 2008) - antiquated. Many cameras now allow you to select panorama mode, slowly pan the camera and the camera handles all the heavy lifting - it decides when the end of the first scene occurs and the second begins, and stitches them accordingly. The Stylus 1 requires the user to take picture 1, remember where the end point is, pan the camera so there is overlap at this end point, and then take picture 2. Etc. AND it then requires the individual pictures be stitched together off-camera with either the Olympus software or something like Photoshop. Very cumbersome & very old style.
With all the interest in HDR, this camera does nothing to address that. I realize Canon has a patent on processing HDR shots in-camera at the pixel level, so I wouldn't immediately expect Olympus to have the equivalent feature. However, for those of us willing to do post processing of images to achieve HDR results, the camera does little if nothing to support this. For good HDR photos, you need at least 3 shots at -2 EV, 0 EV and +2 EV. The Stylus 1 has +/- 3 EV stops which can be manually set but you can only take a max of 3 BRKT shots with +/- 1 EV for each shot. Even my old SP 565 UZ can take 5 BRKT shots albeit at +/- 1 EV. But then you get the 3 shots at +/- 2EV if you discard shots 2 & 4.
NO way to use filters! Even the "magnetic" two piece filter device won't fit.Read more ›
I am 80+ & only recently starting using a camera again, so all of you experts & advanced can skip this. The last time I regularly used a camera was in the '50s, it was a 35mm Retina IIIC that was stolen in Paris while I was in the service. I have used a small low-priced point-and-shoot shirtpocket digital camera occasionally for the past two years but have read too many reviews and wanted one that "did it all" and was pocketable. Right now this could be too much camera for me (auto is used a lot), but I take great pictures with it. I think this is probably the best all-purpose out today (& I predict this market segment will get crowded soon). This camera is not pocketable unless you're wearing a jacket w/roomy pockets, or cargo pants, etc., no shirtpocket model this (will be OK in a roomy purse). But it is small & easy to carry w/a wrist strap or stuff in a jacket pocket. From a practical standpoint (not expert) the closeups are great, maybe better than I realize, took a couple of beautiful portrait shots, one with the built-in flash, the zoom is terrific and used the moving picture once - outstanding mountain scenery and zoomed in on a doe. Like the viewfinder. It comes w/a neck strap but a wrist strap works better for me. Some buttons kind of small for this arthritic oldtimer but plan on using them often so will adjust. Comes w/battery & charger but I bought a Wasabi w/car charger & 2 extra batteries. Got a lot of photo ideas of people and places -- anxious to travel, shoot them & share them from a decent camera. Recently bought a new car . . . what I figure will be my last . . . this little jewel should be my last (& only) camera, my wife adopted the shirtpocket model!
PS---Shipped from Akiba Express, got here in good shape well before they predicted.
