Olympus XZ-1: 46 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. focus points

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

4. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

5. noise

The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.

6. weight

7. image quality

A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.

8. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

9. video recording

10. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

11. color depth

The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.

12. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

13. pixel density

14. width

15. has a built-in HDR mode

It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
