Best one in it's class but needs weatherproofing

The bright lens which is so good in low light sold me. I like nature shots and tend to shoot in early morning and evening. The quality of the images were even better than I expected. Some complain about the lens cap but I got used to it very quickly.
In 1995 my 1st camera was the Olympus superzoom 120. I loved the weatherproof aspect of it. I wish my XZ-1 had this. I'm going to get the optional view-finder to. I think the price is a bit steep though.

Great camera easy to use, with many features

I have only had this camera a short time. The iauto mode makes it easy to get good pictures. I have been able to very low light pictures. One of my favorite subjects are my Grandchildren. The focus tack feature makes it easy to lock on and follow them to get a shot.

The Oled screen is great, bright and sharp. I could still use a view finder, but the price for it is way to steep.

It would be better if the lens cover was built in. This might be difficult to do with a lens as wide open and quality.

This has been a fun camera to get to know. I have a lot more to learn. I look for reasons to take pictures.

Great camera - Just need option to turn off NR

This is the best compact camera to come out in years. The lens is very bright and high-ISO is very usable.

But the noise reduction is too strong. Images at ISO200+ come out like water colors. I am forced to shoot RAW solely for this reason.

Olympus if you are reading, please please please add an option to disable NR in a firmware update. It'll make our lives so much easier!

Thank you.

Great auto camera - best indoors I have seen

Bought for 2 reasons: fast shutter release and great shots inside in normal interior light.

Could not be more pleased - fulfills my 2 reasons for buying perfectly - better in my opinion than any other point and shoot on market at present.

2 things I would like improved, but no where near deal breakers -- need loose pockets to carry in pants and with lens protruding, makes bulge in jacket; lens cover is press on fit and just fell off until I added some tape around inside edge to make it fit snugger. Prefer the type cover that grabs lens and requires a squeeze on opposite sides to release.

Images of people are extremely sharp and in focus - more than I had hoped for. Easy to learn basics if have used auto point and shoots before. Of course, this is much more than an auto camera, but that is what I wanted it for primarily, and it fills the bill as good as I had hoped for - highly recommended if the 2 irritations I mentioned above are acceptable - I bought online as soon as released - probably better to go to a camera store and check it out.

Best P&S Camera Currently Available

Terrrific well desiged camera. Lots of flexability for advanced users but does an amazing job in iAuto. High quality images in JPEG or Raw. Pleasing color and tones. Noise reduction too strong in high ISO shots.

This camera is just the right size.

I have many other brands of point and shoot cameras this Olympus is by far the best for size, weight and features. The main purpose for my purchase was to be able to use manual settings and with help from my friends, I was able to conquer that in no time. The flash mode is adequate for most of my shootings, but with the adapter for other flash accessories I have more than needed. The lens is superb and great quality. Can't say enough good things about the XZ except go buy one.

Great raw images. Nice bright LCD screen - hope OLCD technology holds up. Nice compact size.

A bet nearly lost

Olympus could have accomplished a great compact camera, probably the best on the market right now, instead they deliberately throw it out giving to the XZ-1 the worst possible video mode. It can barely compete with cellphone video, it's a shame!
I have heard in some forums people talking about their hope that a new firmware could solve the video troubles...I do hope so, but I'm not confidant.

Come on Olympus...improve the XZ-1 firmware, amaze us all!!
