The Olympus XZ-1 is a manual-oriented camera with great optics, but its autofocus and exposure levels are weak spots, and it's not entirely novice-friendly.

Marketing Information  

Unleash your creative side with the first-ever Olympus X Series camera. Designed for those who want the quality of an SLR in a high-end point-and-shoot format, this camera provides a new, easy-to-use outlet for artistic expression. With the XZ-1 you'll capture high-quality still images and HD videos in any shooting environment thanks to its fast, super-bright, built-in Olympus iZuiko lens and its large, super-sensitive CCD sensor.

This versatile compact camera featuring a fast Leica Summicron zoom lens with focal-lengths from 24 to 90 mm (35 mm equivalent), is the perfect camera for a broad spectrum of photgraphic situations: from macro and wide angle architecture to landscape, from reportage to portrait and available-light photography. Manual setting options and an extensive range of accessories provide even greater creative freedom. With such versatile performance in such a compact package, the D-Lux 5 is the perfect companion whenever you seek inspiration - in Berlin or anywhere else in the world.

It Just Keeps Getting Better And Better!

The world-renowned LX series which has been long acclaimed by the photography enthusiasts for its high picture quality and creative descriptiveness now comes equipped with a fully re-designed lens, image sensor and the image processing engine for superior performance and stunning image quality in the new LUMIX LX7.

Brighter Optics From LEICA

Equipped with a newly developed 24mm ultra-wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX lens with 3.8x optical zoom*1, the LUMIX LX7's supreme lens also features F1.4 brightness at wide-end and F2.3 at tele-end. The F1.4 brightness is approximately 400% as bright as an F2.8 lens. The extraordinarily rich amount of light allows for the use of higher shutter speed to capture stunningly clear, sharp, blur-free images in low light situations and also provides impressive expression to images by reproducing exquisite gradation and mellow defocus to elevate photography.
