We've just posted an almost complete set of lab test shots for the Olympus XZ-1 digital camera!
The Olympus XZ-1 bears an impressive i.Zuiko Digital 6.0 - 24.0mm, with maximum apertures of a bright f/1.8 to f/2.5 across the zoom range. The Olympus XZ-1's lens has 35mm-equivalent focal lengths from a useful 28mm wide angle to a moderate 112mm telephoto. Effective resolution of the Olympus XZ-1 is ten megapixels, from a 1/1.63"-type CCD image sensor. Output from the sensor is handled by a TruePic V image processor. To fight blur from camera shake, there's a sensor shift-type image stabilization system. On its rear panel, the XZ-1 offers up a 3.0-inch LCD display with a fairly high resolution of 614,000 dots, roughly equating to 205,000 pixels. Other features include a contrast detection AF system with an AF assist lamp, a variety of art filters, an accessory port compatible with PEN-series accessories, and a 720p high-def movie mode.
