Beautiful colors but a bit short and narrow that it wears thin around your neck.

The fleece is a bit on the thin side,but i am surprised how warm it is. I bought it primarily because of my devotion to Bruce Lee. It is definitely over priced though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sound coming from a small little box, December 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great sound coming from a small little box, though based on the design, I thought the sound will come out from all sides instead from just the front side.

1.0 out of 5 stars very short battery life, May 9, 2011
i bought two as spares. at the beginning it works fine. though after one month of usage, the low battery light went on soon after i put a freshly charged one in. the original one that comes with the camera last much much longer. i am going to buy the real thing instead. you do get what you pay for!

5.0 out of 5 stars my "perfect" camera, February 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i have always been a fan of Canon and have had these models over the past 8 years: Canon G1, G2, G6, Canon S2 IS, Canon EOS 350D, Canon S90... my favorite had been the G6 for the longest time with its F2.0-3.0 lens, but as times goes by, it started to wear out with a slight problem with the zooming control. it is a shame how newer models of the Canon G line do not have the fast lens anymore. less then a year ago, i got the canon S90. it is really compact, but the lens is not as fast. moreover, when i did a side by side comparion between a picture taken by my G6 versus S90, the G6 actually still takes better pictures. my Canon EOS 350D takes good portrait, though i find it hard to focus correctly for closeup with the tiny red dot, and it is hard to tell the mis-focus problem while taking the pictures via the optical viewfinder. as a result, half the pictures turn out good, half is out of focus. it is also too bulky to carry and take it in and out from the camera bag. therefore, my quest for a compact DSLR camera begin...

several months ago, i decided to purchase something other than a Canon and got a Panasonic Lumix GF1 with the pancake lens and a zoom lens. the camera is much smaller and the pancake lens is very fast, which is great. however, my initial fear of perspective distortion for portrait shots turns out to be true. even though 40mm should be a "perfect normal" lens, it is not. portrait shots taken from head to above waistline suffers perspective distortion. of course, i can change to the 45-200mm zoom lens for portrait, but first of all, it is not convenient, second of all, i lose the fast F1.7 lens and falls back to F/4.0-5.6, and lastly, it becomes bulky again.

well, my quest continues for a "perfect" camera with these simple basic key features:
1. fast lens
2. at least 4X built-in zoom
3. zoom-able video mode
4. pocket sized

with a fast lens, i can take natural low-light pictures without having to use a flash. i truly dislike using flash and avoid it whenever possible. in addition, i need a camera with a decent built in zoom for portrait shots, at least 4X. usually zooming suffers a smaller aperture resulting in slower speed. even with my very steady hand, i find very often that my objectives, usually children, cannot stay truly still. thirdly, being able to take zoom-able HD video. i find it hard to believe even Canon G12 is not zoom-able in video mode. with zoom-able HD video, i will not need to carry a camcorder anymore. given i am much more demanding in the quality of pictures and much less demanding in the quality of video, i still do need zooming when taking video. simply put, i just want a compact, pocket-able camera that does it all.

i was quite excited to read about this Olympus XZ-1 last month which answers to all my demands for a compact size camera. i used to own an Olympus when i was a teenager, back in the film days of course, and i had always been very happy with it. so i am very glad to be back using an Olympus again. 3 days ago, to my surprise, i received my XZ-1. it is everything it claims to be and fulfills my quest for the "perfect" camera. it is compact, light, with a super fast lens even at 4X zoom. with such a fast lens, i am foreseeing the ability to taking beautiful pictures. though these are some of the minor drawbacks i noticed for now:

1. it does not come with a charger. it only comes with a USB charger which means i cannot use the camera while i am charging. i have to purchase a charger separately. it is not a big deal, of course, but simply caught by surprise that such a "perfect" camera does not come with something so basic. the battery is very small, i will buy two more as backup.

2. some of the control settings, i.e. focus frame setting & spot metering are not intuitively layout that i have to review the user manual for instruction, which is only available from a CD, not an actual tangible book.

3. with AUTO ISO setting, it doesn't display the actual ISO setting when taking the picture :(

other than that, i am overall very pleased with the XZ-1. i was going to give it a 4 star for not having a battery charger, but to be fair, it really doesn't have anything to do with the camera itself other than a packaging issue, so i give it a 5 star for the genius who discovered the beauty of building a truly fast lens into a compact size camera.

i can now put all my other cameras aside :)

3.3.2011 update:

having played around with the camera a bit more, i noticed that the flash does not come on automatically even in iAuto mode. you need to "turn-on" the flash before that flash can do its thing. it is not a big deal, but just unexpected. anyone out there experience this? or i may have defective flash?

as far as picture quality goes, i compared a picture i took with this vs. my good old canon G6, all with default settings and A mode. it was a shot of my son in the dining room during the day. the picture from my G6 is slightly more "blue-ish" as supposed to the XZ-1's being slightly more "red-ish". individually, they looked perfectly okay, though in contrast, the difference is apparent. i would say the true color falls somewhere in between the two. more comparisons are to be done...

5.0 out of 5 stars solid built, fast & powerful, March 19, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
just got this as a present for my 11-years old son. he loves it! he has always been a fan of the Luger pistol from WWII. it feels real. we had a little trouble pumping the gas into the gun since i had never done this before, and can never be sure if it is full. yet, the last round we played the gas is enough to fire two loads of BBs (30). the BBs shot out so fast that we weren't sure if anything fired out at all, but they did. would consider buying another one, though, it is now unavailable : (

5.0 out of 5 stars great value and quality!, January 19, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
this is my first studio lighting set and i was looking for something inexpensive. the set was shipped with missing set of umbrellas. i contacted cowboy studio and the customer service was very helpful and immediately shipped out the umbrellas. given the set only cost under $100, the quality does exceed my expectation. it is completely acceptable and i am very happy with it. the only thing is that the white umbrella diffuse too much light that i am considering buying another set of umbrellas with black covers.
