Olynmpus XZ-1

leave a comment »

The Olympus XZ-1 has been sitting on a shelf, for a long time.  It was time to ressurect it.  The lens at it’s widest setting is very decent, even seven or eight years on from it’s launch.    Mobile phones may replace the lower end of small cameras but as far as I’m concerned there is a place for a designated small format camera with all the PSAM controls.  What has worked against the small format camera is the high price in comparison to a mobile phone, and at lower end, cameras seemed to me to be sluggish.  A wifi or NFC capable small format camera with a decent lens would is a nice companion to the modern smart phone.
