Olympus has made a truly exciting camera in the form of the XZ-1, with a super-bright lens and plenty of controls to fiddle with.
The Good: Stylish, well-designed body • Range of art filters available • Excellent OLED screen • Very good image quality • Aperture stays wide throughout the focal length.
The Bad: Pop-up flash can hinder how you hold the camera • Video is only at 720p and not amazing.
