About the Olympus XZ-1

The XZ-1 10MP Digital Camera (Black) from Olympus is a compact camera that delivers exceptional picture quality--beautiful 10MP photos and dazzling 720p HD video with its super bright 4x wide-angle 28-112mm (equivalent) f/1.8 zoom lens and large 1/6.3" CCD sensor. Using the brilliant 3" OLED monitor with 610K dots of resolution, you can compose and view photos, knowing that the dual image stabilization and ISO up to 3200 will chase away those blurry-picture blues.

Six in-camera art filters--Pop Art, Soft Focus, Grainy Film, Pin Hole, Diorama and Dramatic Tone--help bring out your artistic side in stills and video. A panorama mode allows you to produce amazing ultra wide-angle panoramas by just shooting three pictures while you slowly sweep the camera across the scene--no tripod required. An accessory port allows the use of the SEMA-1 microphone adapter set and the VF-2 electronic viewfinder (both available separately), while advanced Face Detection improves on every portrait and AF tracking helps you keep moving subjects always sharp and in-focus. All of this photographic goodness comes in a compact body that's less than 4.5" wide and less than 2" thick and weighs less than 10 oz.
