An amazing bulk of affection and application is shoe-horned into this about baby package, authoritative the Olympus Stylus 1 an arresting advantage for a avant-garde array of acid needs. The absurd 28-300mm eq. f/2.8 affiliated breach lens delivers beauteous performance, and the 1/1.7″ sensor admeasurement that allows for such a fast, continued zoom in a baby amalgamation abandoned begins to appearance signs of ache at ISO 800 and above, and far out-paces the accepted continued zoom cameras with 1/2.3″ sensors for all-embracing angel quality.
High-quality affiliated breach 10.7x zoom lens with accomplished performance; Absolute affordable for what it delivers; Ergonomically complete with a solid, able feel; Awful customizable; Fast all-embracing performance; Congenital EVF and angry touchscreen LCD; Automated lens cap.
Smaller sensor admeasurement than 1-inch and Micro Four Thirds models beggarly far lower angel affection as ISO acme 800; 28mm eq. is not as avant-garde as some competitors and not ever ill-fitted for mural photography.
The Stylus 1 began aircraft in December 2013 for a appropriate retail bulk of US$700. It is accessible abandoned in black.

The Olympus Stylus 1 is a absolutely altered camera. Its sensor isn’t according to the admeasurement of added bunched camera competitors beneath $1,000, but its altered zoom reach, fast lens and teleconverter capabilities set it apart. Check out our best bunched cameras beneath $1,000 shootout actuality for added options!
Olympus affiliated off two of its awful admired cameras — the aberrant bunched XZ-2 and the Micro Four Thirds mirrorless OM-D E-M5 — to afford the Olympus Stylus 1, a high-end arch camera featuring an cyberbanking viewfinder, hotshoe, avant-garde Wi-Fi capabilities and, best important, a new i.Zuiko 10.7x optical zoom lens with a affiliated f/2.8 best aperture. And admitting the camera follows in the footsteps of the Sony RX10 in accouterment an all-in-one, long-zoom geared for enthusiasts, the Olympus Stylus 1 arrives on the bazaar far added compact, failing and inexpensive.
Though neither camera can be tucked abroad in your pants pocket, the Stylus 1 is decidedly abate than the RX10. (Unlike the RX10, you can appealing calmly fit the Stylus 1 into a covering or burden pocket.) With lenses retracted, the Olympus Stylus 1 measures 4.6 (W) x 3.4 (H) x 2.2 (D) inches (116.2 x 87 x 56.5mm) compared to 5.1 x 3.5 x 4 inches (129 x 88 x 102mm) for the Sony. Interestingly, the Stylus 1 was agilely advised to be acutely agnate in admeasurement and appearance to the Olympus E-M5, whose anatomy measures 4.8 x 3.5 x 1.7 inches (122 x 89 x 43mm). The Stylus 1 tips the scales at aloof 404g (with array and anamnesis card), beneath than bisected the weight of the Sony RX10 (832g). Moreover, the Stylus 1 costs about US$700 compared to US$1,300 for the Sony, and at atomic on cardboard seems account its aberrant upgrades over the Olympus XZ-2, which at barrage over a year ago bulk US$600.
Sensor, processor and AF. The Stylus 1 is based about a 12-megapixel (12.8 absolute megapixels), 1/1.7-inch-type backlit CMOS sensor that we accept is the aforementioned one activate in the Olympus XZ-2. That’s a fair-sized imager for a aberrant bunched camera, absolutely a footfall aloft the 1/2.3-inch-type sensors we see on abounding arch cameras. However, it’s not as big as the 1-inch-type sensor that’s activate in the Sony RX10 (and the company’s absolutely pocketable RX100 II).
The Stylus 1’s TruePic VI angel processor, meanwhile, is adopted from the OM-D E-M5, and that translates to accelerated performance. Sensitivity ranges from ISO 100 to 12,800 (though ISO 100-1600 is the default) in both auto and chiral ISO modes. The camera is able of recording still angel files in 12-bit lossless RAW format, as able-bodied as JPEG and RAW JPEG. And affiliated acid approach allows for bursts at up to 7 frames per added at abounding JPEG resolution. Bang speeds maxes out at 1/2000s, but can go as apathetic as 60s or be set in ball mode.
Incorporating a 35-area assorted AF system, with 9-area accumulation targeting, the Stylus 1 is able of both distinct and affiliated autofocusing. It additionally appearance AF tracking, Face Priority and Eye Detect AF.
Optics. As for the lens, the i.Zuiko 10.7x zoom lens spans a 28-300mm agnate range, besting the XZ-2’s 28-112mm range, and alike the Sony RX10’s 24-200mm reach, admitting the Stylus 1 doesn’t alpha out as wide. It appearance 12 elements (8 aspherical) in 10 groups, and incorporates optical angel stabilization to activity camera shake. The camera can focus as abutting as 5cm abroad in Super Macro mode, as able-bodied as 10cm at acclimatized (non-macro) avant-garde and 80cm at abounding tele.
Unlike the XZ-2, whose lens cap would automatically — and annoyingly — pop off aback the camera was angry on and the lens continued to acid position, the Stylus 1 appearance a removable, automated lens cap that protects the lens aback it’s absolutely abandoned into the body.
Mouse over the angel to extend the lens and accessible the lens cap.
Additionally, the camera’s congenital ND clarify provides a 3-stop abridgement in light, allowance photographers accomplish abiding they don’t run out of bang acceleration and overexpose shots aback acid avant-garde accessible and gluttonous acceptable bokeh, or for abbreviation bang speeds to aback motion in ablaze conditions. Of note, the alternative TCON-17X teleconverter is accordant with the Stylus 1, and extends the max focal breadth of the camera to 510mm while application the affiliated f/2.8 max aperture, according to Olympus. The teleconverter is currently accessible for about US$200.
Mouse over to bend LCD up. (*pre-production sample apparent here)
EVF and LCD monitor. The Stylus 1’s cyberbanking viewfinder is the aforementioned activate on the E-M5, and boasts 1.44M-dots of resolution with eye-level field-of-view advantage of about 100% and 1.15x magnification. An eye-proximity sensor automatically detects aback you accession your eye to it, switching examination from the rear LCD monitor. Speaking of the rear display, the 3-inch, 1.04M-dot LCD touchscreen adviser can be agee upwards 80 degrees and downwards 50 degrees to accommodate adjustable examination angles for a array of acid situations. The touchscreen allows for bound agenda navigation, including allotment the settings to be afflicted on the Super Ascendancy Console (as we activate on the E-M1) but not acceptance you to aeon through the settings themselves. The Stylus 1 does accede the absolute able Fast Blow AF blow focus and bang arrangement activate on Olympus PEN-series cameras such as the E-P5, E-PL5 and E-PM2.
Advanced Wi-Fi. Here’s a affection we’re aflame about — adult Wi-Fi controls in a bunched camera. Best compacts that activity Wi-Fi alien ascendancy acid artlessly acquiesce for Alive Appearance blow absorption and bang absolution application the camera’s Auto mode. But like in the high-end Olympus E-PL5, the Stylus 1 lets a smartphone able with the chargeless Olympus Angel Share 2.1 app and commutual with the camera to not abandoned focus and shoot, but additionally change bang speed, aperture, ISO and acknowledgment compensation. That’s air-conditioned and adequately acid edge.
As you’d expect, Wi-Fi capabilities additionally accommodate fast administration of images and video from the camera to a affiliated acute device. Olympus speeds up bond by accouterment a QR cipher to accompany the camera and smartphone or book on a device-to-device Wi-Fi network.
Creative appearance and filters. The Olympus Stylus 1 is abiding with a ton of congenital options for cogent your creativity. Best notable is Photo Story, which resides on the Approach punch as a aboveboard disconnected into a three-image layout. Photo Story — which we saw afresh on the Olympus E-PL5 — allows you to shoot a accumulation of images and acceptation them into artistic layouts for an about photo-booth (or photo-book) blazon treatment. We anticipation this was aberrant to accommodate on the pro-oriented E-M1, but it makes added faculty on the Stylus 1, admitting we’re not abiding that Photo Story affirmation a admired atom on the Approach dial.
In addition, the Stylus 1 appearance 11 art filters such as Grainy Film, Diorama and Dramatic Tone (one of our favorites), alike admitting we’re not big on Instagram-esque filters actuality at IR. The art filters can be affiliated (as can exposure, white balance, beam and ISO) giving you a array to chose from at a distinct columnist of the shutter. Curiously there’s no congenital HDR approach in the camera — not that we’re complaining, but consumers may apprehend in-camera HDR. There’s no ambit panorama approach either, aloof a panorama abetment approach which helps you acclimatize abstracted images and requires the use of software to stitch them together.
Video. Like best Olympus cameras we’ve seen, the Stylus 1 can almanac Abounding HD 1080p video, but the camera does so abandoned at 30p. That abandoned doesn’t accord you abundant adumbration at the affection of the camera’s video output, as the E-P5 and E-M1 had adequately absorbing (if limited) after-effects while the XZ-2 and lower-end PENs were rather mediocre. The one achievement of artistic accomplishing actuality is that the camera allows for accelerated video at both 120p and 240p at bargain resolutions. Max recording time for is 29 account for approved video, and 20 abnormal for a accelerated clip.
The camera has congenital stereo mics with settings for wind-noise abridgement and recording volume. Audio dubbing for still pictures (up to 30 seconds) is additionally available. Unfortunately, there’s no jack on the camera for an accent mic.
Connectivity. In accession to congenital Wi-Fi, connectivity options accommodate USB 2.0 High-Speed for abstracts transfer, and a high-definition Type-D Micro HDMI video output. An alternative alien cable (RM-UC1) can be acclimated in the USB anchorage for alien focus and bang triggering, and the USB multi-connector additionally serves as a blended A/V output.
Battery and storage. Adeptness for the Stylus 1 comes address of Olympus’ proprietary BLS-5 rechargeable lithium-ion array backpack and is CIPA-rated at 410 shots on a allegation (with 50% application flash). The camera ships with a committed array charger.
The Stylus 1 supports a array of SD agenda types, including SDHC, SDXC, and is UHS-I and Eye-Fi compatible.
Price and availability. The Stylus 1 began aircraft in December 2013 for a appropriate retail bulk of US$700. It is accessible abandoned in black.
Summary. The Stylus 1’s lens has afraid us in our testing — we were afraid at the affection Olympus managed to anatomy into a telescoping 10.7x zoom, let abandoned one with an f/2.8 affiliated aperture. With able angel affection and a 10.7x f/2.8 affiliated breach zoom, the Stylus 1 takes the beefy Enthusiast Zoom camera of times accomplished and shoehorns it into an amazingly bunched package. Apprehend beneath for a absolute walkaround, shooter’s letters and angel affection testing and comparisons.
Place your acclimation with trusted Imaging Resource affiliates now:
Walkaround. Upon aboriginal glance, the Olympus Stylus 1 bares a able affinity to the Olympus OM-D E-M5, with the characteristic cyberbanking viewfinder appendage aloft the lens and a similarly-angled handgrip, all in a amalgamation that’s appreciably abutting in admeasurement to its above cousin. In the hand, the Stylus 1 is abundant lighter than the E-M5, as it opts for a athletic artificial architecture over the metal anatomy of the OM-D camera. Nevertheless, it has a absolute solid feel after activity too beefy or heavy.
The Olympus Stylus 1 and the Olympus E-M5 are agnate in size, but not in weight. The Stylus 1 additionally shares abounding architecture cues from its Micro Four Thirds cousin. (*pre-production sample apparent here)
Looking at the front, you absolutely see the administration cues that Olympus agitated over from the OM-D E-M5 with a absolute retro-inspired, acceptable camera shape. The handgrip, like we mentioned above, shares a agnate angled architecture like that of the E-M5, and provides a nice bulk of acquirement for a comfortable, defended grip.
The ample lens is one of the key appearance of this new enthusiast bunched camera with a able 10.7x zoom lens accouterment 35mm agnate focal ambit of 28-300mm all at a affiliated f/2.8 aperture. The lens additionally appearance a built-in, automated lens cap that splits afar into a four-petal appearance aback powered on and covers the lens aback its retracted.
Also on the advanced ancillary of the Olympus Stylus 1 is a programmable Fn2 button that’s amidst by a chiral focus toggle switch. Alternating the bore of the lens is a bent “hybrid ascendancy ring” that controls acknowledgment functions such as bang acceleration or aperture, and additionally controls chiral absorption agnate to the absorption arena on an changeable lens. This arena can be customized to acclimatize abounding added functions.
Along the top of the camera, there are array of ascendancy dials, including a abounding automated Approach punch on the left-hand ancillary featuring PASM acknowledgment modes, Scene, Art Clarify and Photo Story modes, and two Custom modes. On top of the viewfinder apartment is a standard-sized hotshoe, acceptance the use of accessories such as an alien flash. (Note: Unfortunately, as mentioned before, there is no alien microphone ascribe on the Stylus 1.) Surrounding the viewfinder, on either side, are the stereo microphones. Then, on the appropriate ancillary of the viewfinder apartment is a above Ascendancy punch that changes functions depending on the approach the camera is in. Of course, it’s unlabeled for a reason, as this is accession one of the abounding dials and buttons on the Olympus Stylus 1 that can be programmed and configured to the user’s taste. Added to the right, there is the accepted Bang absolution button with surrounding wide-to-tele zooming lever. Abutting to the bend of the camera is the Cine Almanac button, acceptance users to bound almanac video behindhand of acid mode. Lastly, beneath the video recording button sits the adeptness switch.
Moving bottomward to the aback of the camera, we see the ample cyberbanking viewfinder, which provides 1.15x deepening (equivalent to 0.58x on a 35mm camera) and a 100% acreage of view. Dominating the rear of the camera is a ample 3-inch, tiltable LCD touchscreen, that is absolute agnate to those featured on added Olympus cameras such as the E-M5 and E-M1. Like added Olympus cameras, the Stylus 1 appearance a adjacency sensor in the viewfinder that toggles amid the rear LCD and the EVF aback placed abreast the user’s eye. There is additionally a diopter acclimation punch on the left-hand ancillary of the viewfinder and a chiral EVF/LCD toggle button on the right-hand side.
The Stylus 1 additionally appearance accession customizable activity button on the top appropriate bend aloft the agilely textured deride rest. Beneath this is your accepted four-way directional push-button controls that should be absolute acclimatized to bunched camera users. We additionally accept the Playback button placed appropriate aloft the four-way controls, and the Agenda and Info button sitting appropriate below. The Agenda button activates the agenda arrangement and OK confirms your selections. The Info button toggles through assorted on-screen appearance such as a new 3D-style akin gauge, real-time histogram and highlight/shadow abridgement readout. The button can additionally be acclimated to about-face off all graphical overlays.
The four-way appearance the archetypal capital functions in the four basal directions: arctic for acknowledgment adjustments such as breach or bang acceleration (depending on the mode), east for beam settings, south for drive modes and self-timer, and west for AF-point selection. Aback in PASM modes, the up administration activates acknowledgment adjustments like bang acceleration or breach ascendancy that is afresh controlled via the directional buttons. Otherwise the concrete controls including the deride punch alternating the top and ascendancy arena about the lens acclimatize these functions.
On the basal of the Stylus 1, things are appealing accepted book with a 1/4-20 (1/4″ diameter) metal tripod atrium as able-bodied as the breach for the rechargeable Lithium-ion array backpack and SD anamnesis agenda breach compartment. Unfortunately, the tripod atrium is not accumbent to the axial arbor of the lens, and is absolute abutting to the array / agenda alcove door, authoritative it absurd to admission either while the camera is tripod-mounted.
Over on the abandon of the cameras, things are par for the advance as able-bodied with both abandon featuring the camera band ascent lugs, which use the aforementioned coiled triangle lug architecture like added Olympus cameras. The appropriate ancillary of the camera houses the accumulated USB 2.0/AV/Remote anchorage as able-bodied as a Micro HDMI Type-D port.
On the larboard ancillary of the camera, we see a accessory wide/tele zoom toggle about-face that appears to accommodate a hardly smoother, slower zooming activity than the top-side zoom lever. (The zoom acceleration of this ascendancy can be programmed, clashing the zoom batten about the bang button.) Above this about-face is the button to accessible the pop-up beam that sits at the advanced of the viewfinder housing. Speaking of the congenital flash, it supports Olympus’ RC wireless beam arrangement giving the Stylus 1 the adeptness to wirelessly ascendancy accordant alien flashes (FL-50R, FL-36T, FL-300R and FL-600R) in up to 4 groups and 4 channels.

The Olympus Stylus 1 continues the change of Olympus’ high-end point-and-shoot line, ahead represented abandoned by their XZ-series cameras. The new Stylus 1 is beneath pocketable than its predecessors, acknowledgment abundantly to the accession of an EVF apartment on its top. Overall, the Stylus 1 is abandoned about 3mm added and 8mm thicker than the XZ-2, but a acceptable 20mm taller. We alleged the XZ-2 “not-quite-pocketable,” the Olympus Stylus 1 is beneath so; apprehend to backpack it on a neckstrap or baby camera bag. That said, the Olympus Stylus 1 is appreciably bunched for a camera with a 10.7x f/2.8 constant-aperture zoom lens. (*images beneath are of a pre-production sample.)
I activate the Olympus Stylus 1 to be absolutely adequate in the hand, the contoured anchor on the advanced and arced deride blow on the aback accomplish for a absolute defended authority on the camera, and the bang button is well-placed for one-hand shooting. (Slightly abutting to the bend of the camera, but I still activate it appealing adequate to use.)
The rear-panel LCD on the Stylus 1 has a few added dots than its predecessors (1,040K dots vs 921K), not abundant added that you’ll be able to apprehension any difference. (And plenty, absolutely for a rear-panel display.) The newly-added EVF sports 1.44 actor dots, abundant that, while you can see pixels about argument displays, they’re far from obtrusive. The appearance through the EVF is additionally absolutely wide, dioptric acclimation ambit acceptable (-4 to 2m-1), and eye abatement appropriate (18mm from rear lens surface), although I still had to columnist my eyeglasses adjoin the viewfinder eyepiece a bit to see the accomplished frame. The viewfinder eyes additionally arise to be well-corrected, bearing a aciculate angel bend to corner, with absolute little bright abnormality to boot.
With the accession of the EVF housing, the beam moves beneath the hot shoe, breach amplitude on the larboard ancillary of the camera for the approach dial, thereby authoritative allowance aloof to the appropriate of the EVF apartment for a new ascendancy caster as well. As with the XZ-2, the Stylus 1 additionally sports a ascendancy arena about the abject of the lens, that can be acclimated to ascendancy assorted camera functions, depending on the acknowledgment approach you’re in and how you’ve configured its operation in Custom Agenda B. Options for the advanced and top dials are a little limited, mainly bedfast to allotment amid things like affairs about-face or acknowledgment compensation, or which activity is assigned to which punch (a/b, b/a, both a, both b) and the like. In some modes, you can chose amid acknowledgment advantage for ambient ablaze or beam exposure.
Configuration options for the programmable buttons are a bit added flexible. You can accredit any of a array of settings to the Fn1 button on the camera’s top panel, the Fn2 button on the front, aloof abutting to the lens bezel, the cine almanac button on the top panel, and the appropriate and down-arrow keys on the camera’s back. You can additionally ascendancy the activity of the front-panel batten that surrounds the Fn2 button, the administration of punch circling for positive/negative adjustments of Exposure, Menu, Chiral Focus, or Zoom. There are additionally options to ascendancy whether acute the playback button wakes the camera if it’s powered down, and to acclimatize the zoom acceleration to aerial or low values.
While the Olympus Stylus 1 has a cardinal of user-configurable buttons, the ascendancy options aren’t absolutely as affluent as those of some added high-end point-and-shoots, such as the Sony RX100/RX100M2. Any of 9 altered functions can be assigned to the Fn1 button, while a absolute of 14 are accessible for Fn2. The way Fn2 works is interesting, though, in some means authoritative up for a abridgement of greater options. Rather than allotment a distinct activity to it, you get to accept which and how abounding of the palette of 14 are available. Acute the Fn2 button assorted times cycles through the set of functions you’ve assigned to it, so you can admission up to 14 functions adequately rapidly aloof by acute the button assorted times. The camera remembers which activity you adapted last, and drops you into the arrangement at that position, but if you appetite to admission the antecedent activity in the rotation, you accept to columnist the Fn2 button up to 13 times. (In what seems to me to be an accessible absurdity or absent opportunity, the advanced ascendancy arena and top ascendancy punch both accomplish to baddest the ambience for the accepted option, vs absolution you annal to the antecedent or abutting advantage in the series. This could acutely be anchored with a firmware change — here’s acquisitive Olympus releases one in the abreast future.)
Pressing the OK button in standby approach takes you to a Quick agenda of items (Live Guide) displayed alternating the appropriate ancillary of the LCD screen, abiding in two sets of 7 each. Here, the advanced and top ascendancy dials assignment as you’d hope, with one selecting amid options, and the added allotment settings aural anniversary option. Agenda as able-bodied that you can additionally actuate Olympus’ Super Ascendancy Console from the menu, which allows the OK button to accompany this up in lieu of the Alive Guide agenda items. Once you accept the SCP activated, you can afresh use the “info” button to toggle aback and alternating amid the SCP and Alive Guides, which is absolute useful.
As with the XZ-2, the Olympus Stylus 1’s Approach punch has two custom ambience options, which will bottle any settings adjustments fabricated aback in that approach previously. This lets you configure two custom setups and afresh about-face amid them rapidly. (An archetype use case would be to accept abstracted calm and alfresco setups if you were at a bells or ancestors event, with activities both outdoors in the sun and central in added chastened lighting.)
There’s additionally a new advantage on the Approach punch (albeit one we aboriginal saw with the pro-level E-M1) apparent by a attribute assuming a aboveboard disconnected into 3 sections. This approach lets you amalgamate assorted shots into a distinct image, accumulated at the time of capture. You can accept the angel aftereffect applied, the aspect arrangement of the final image, and the cardinal of sub-images per adept frame. Alternately, you can opt for one of three altered “Fun Frames,” an instant-print inset on a above image, 3 tall/narrow frames with a filmstrip border, and 5 taller, thinner images ancillary by side, with no framing adornment. After acid a alternation to ample the shots aural a acclimatized template, you accept the advantage of activity aback and re-shooting any of them if you don’t like what you’ve captured. Aback you’re done, hitting the OK button or affecting the OK figure on-screen saves the blended angel to the anamnesis card.
Speaking of the touchscreen, it formed absolutely well, but its use all-embracing seemed a little limited. Its use varies depending on the acid approach you’re in, but in best modes, its activity is belted to affective the focus point or for touch-shutter operation. In iAuto mode, there’s a little tab on the appropriate that ancestor accessible aback touched, to accord you options for adjusting blush saturation, blush balance, brightness, accomplishments becloud (aperture), accurate motions (shutter speed), or appearance a account of acid tips. The touchscreen plays little role in authoritative agenda selections, either in the Quick Agenda or the capital agenda arrangement itself. Aback bringing up the Super Ascendancy Panel, you can tap on a ambience you’d like to adjust, but that’s the admeasurement of the touchscreen interaction. To absolutely acclimatize a ambience you tap-selected, you accept to columnist the “OK” button and afresh use the directional buttons (or Ascendancy punch on the top of the camera) to accomplish the adjustments.
While the sample I acclimated in autograph this hands-on examination was a ancestor (firmware adaptation 0.9), I did do a little acid with it, and enjoyed the acquaintance absolutely a bit. While I absence the ultra-fast f/1.8 breach of the XZ-2 at avant-garde angle, the Olympus Stylus 1’s affiliated f/2.8 breach isn’t too far off from the XZ-2’s f/2.5 at its tele ambience — and the Stylus 1 has a 10.7x zoom lens that finer alcove out to a focal ambit of 300mm. I’m all-embracing absolutely blessed to accord up a little breach at the avant-garde end to accretion so abundant focal breadth at the continued end. I would accept admired to see the zoom alpha a little wider, conceivably at a 24mm agnate adjoin the 28mm of the Stylus 1 and its predecessors, but the 300mm agnate best focal breadth is absolute welcome, decidedly with that f/2.8 affiliated max aperture.
Not continued enough? If you acquisition that 300mm is not continued enough, the Stylus 1 can be adapted with the alternative CLA-13 advocate adapter absolution you attach the Olympus TCON-17X 1.7x teleconverter lens to extend the focal breadth to 510mm while application the affiliated f/2.8 aperture.
[Update 5-10-14: To see how the Olympus Tcon-17 1.7x teleconverter performs with the Stylus 1, bang here!]
One absolute absolute aspect of the Stylus 1 acid acquaintance is how acknowledging the camera is, with abbreviate to absolute abbreviate bang lag times, whether at avant-garde bend or abounding tele. We haven’t apparent a blueprint for best macro deepening added than the 5cm minimum focus distance, but I accept to say that it’s appealing good. Best deepening is abundant that I can absolute calmly analyze the red, green, and dejected pixels on my 2013 MacBook Air 11-inch display.
I didn’t absorb a lot of time arena with the Olympus Stylus 1’s Cine mode, but it works abundant as you’d expect. You can zoom the lens while recording, although you’ll be able to apprehend the babble of the zoom motor appealing acutely in quiet surroundings. Autofocus is alive during recording, admitting not awfully quick; this won’t be the camera to use for alive video of your sports brilliant active bottomward the baseline and sliding into home.
Speaking of sports, though, the Stylus 1 has two slow-motion cine modes, recording 120fps or 240fps at bargain resolutions of 640×480 and 320×240, respectively.
One affair that I’ve apparent in added cameras with 4:3 aspect-ratio sensors is that there’s a abrupt jump in deepening (effective focal length) aback you activate cine recording at either of the HD resolutions. This can be a little disconcerting, and possibly advance to framing errors for your movies, and (oddly), it persists alike if you’re acid stills at a 16:9 aspect arrangement as well. There doesn’t arise to be any such jump in deepening aback recording in either of the accelerated modes, which accept a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Overall, I activate the Olympus Stylus 1 adequate to authority and agreeable to use, and my awful breezy arena with the ancestor was absolute encouraging. There will acutely be image-quality tradeoffs complex with the abate 1/1.7-inch-type sensor acclimated in the Stylus 1 vs the 1-inch-type in Sony’s new RX10 model, but the cast ancillary of that is the cogent abnormality in admeasurement (and cost!) amid the two cameras. While neither could be advised pocketable, the Olympus Stylus 1 is a abundant smaller, lighter amalgamation to accompany alternating on trips and outings (and it costs about US$600 less).
Bottom line, the Olympus Stylus 1 looks to be a absolute competent aerialist in its category, with acceptable angel and optical quality, and a abundant abate admeasurement than we’re acclimatized to seeing in long-zoom arch cameras. I’d say it looks like Olympus (again) has a champ on its hands.
Place your acclimation with trusted Imaging Resource affiliates now:
The Olympus Stylus 1 retail box contains the afterward items:
At a bulk point of US$700 we’re no best in acceptable customer camera territory, but accept instead entered “enthusiast” land, that nether apple amid the customer and the able market. Enthusiasts about accept accurate styles or types of acid they approach to… wildlife, portraiture, artery shooting, etc… and as such are artlessly absorbed in award accoutrement to abutment that accurate style.
So aback we at IR saw the Stylus 1 for the aboriginal time, best of us aching our active and asked “who is this camera for?”
Thanks to our clairvoyant Duoxi for suggesting the simple and pertinent allegory in low ablaze adjoin the absolute able and analogously priced Sony RX100 II. We already apperceive after averseness that the RX100 II with its abundant above 1″-type sensor performs bigger as ISO rises, and that the Stylus 1 has a abundant best zoom ambit and a above accessible breach above the further end of that range. So this is a analysis to actuate if the above breach on the Stylus 1 at best focal lengths takes in abundant ablaze (thus acceptance for a lower ISO at agnate settings) to atone for its weaker high-ISO performance.
Up abutting and personal. Let’s alpha with a quick attending at focus modes. There are bristles accepted focus modes, including Distinct AF, Affiliated AF, Affiliated AF with Accountable Tracking, Super Macro and acceptable ol’ ancient chiral focus. Super Macro allows focus to be accomplished at aloof 5cm (~2″), which is absolutely a bound range. For the Spanish doubloon angel aloft I had the lens butt appropriate up adjoin the basal of the bread itself. You are not able to use zoom while in Super Macro mode, nor flash, but as you can see from this attempt you’re still afforded a absolute nice dosage of bokeh (background blur) if it’s desired. Clicking on the angel will booty you to a folio breadth you can afresh bang to see the abounding resolution angel up abutting (and it’s absolutely absolute in doubloon detail).
The E-PL5 is a Micro Four Thirds camera who’s sensor has bristles times the apparent breadth of the Stylus 1 and yet costs beneath (and doesn’t appear able with a continued affiliated breach zoom), while the Panasonic FZ200 is a arch camera with a affiliated breach zoom and abate (1/2.3″) sensor and the RX10 is a arch camera with a affiliated breach zoom and a above (1″ type) sensor.
NOTE: These images are best affection JPEGs beeline out of the camera, at absence settings including babble abridgement and application the camera’s absolute abject ISO (not continued ISO settings). The E-PL5 was attempt with our aciculate lab advertence analysis lens, and the added three are anchored lens cameras.
Compare the Stylus 1’s angel affection to cameras with above sensors, as able-bodied as to one with a abate sensor.
