Olympus 1020 Intro

The Olympus 1020 is the flagship of the Stylus line, intended as an all-around "family" camera, good for taking along on outings. Its splash-resistance makes it more able to stand up to rain and occasional mishaps involving water, and its sleek lines and compact profile make it ideal for slipping into a pocket or purse at a moment's notice. Like others in the line, the Olympus 1020 would make a great bring-along camera for everyday photography.

Olympus 1020 Features

The Olympus Stylus 1020 has a ten megapixel image sensor coupled to an Olympus branded 7x optical zoom. It is near-identical to the Stylus 1010, with the exception of the LCD display which is a newer HyperCrystal II type with improved color reproduction and contrast, versus the regular HyperCrystal LCD of the 1010. The LCD is the sole method of framing as the 1020 forgoes an optical viewfinder. The Olympus 1020 also offers sensor shift image stabilization, xD-Picture Card storage, and roughly 15MB of built-in memory.
