D-SLR handling meets compact casing – Premium Olympus STYLUS 1 is first of its kind

Big-sensor compact combines D-SLR shooting style and portable design – Serious photographers have a practical alternative to D-SLR that matches the superior handling of top-flight cameras: the new Olympus STYLUS 1 premium compact. Olympus engineers were determined the STYLUS 1 would stand out for its excellent quality. Mission accomplished. Of course they applied the same high standards to the compact design. The STYLUS 1 is a genuinely portable, slim, ‘anytime anywhere’ camera with the manual controls, eye-to-the-viewfinder stability and picture quality to satisfy the most discerning photographers. Be they compact enthusiasts or D-SLR owners looking for a more compact, second camera. A big 1/1.7-inch BSI CMOS sensor heads an impressive list of credentials that includes a new and versatile, ultra-slim, constant-aperture 1:2.8 10.7x (28-300mm*) high-power i.ZUIKO DIGITAL lens and a highperformance TruePic VI image processor. A large-format, high-definition electronic viewfinder, Fast AF and shoot-and-share WiFi round off a persuasive semi-pro package. The STYLUS 1 is available in classic black for €599.99, from late November 2013.
