Olympus Stylus 1S

 

Released towards the end of 2013, the Olympus Stylus 1 was an enthusiast all-in-one camera boasting a 12MP high-sensitivity CMOS image sensor, the TruePic VI image processor, and a 10.7x i.Zuiko zoom lens. While its price tag rivaled some entry-level...

Olympus Stylus 1s Review

 

In the spring of 2014, we reviewed the Olympus Stylus 1, and found much to love in a product that redefined what the bridge camera could be, pairing compact size and a larger-than-average sensor with an excellent 10.7x constant-aperture zoom lens. Now,...

Power for the Stylus 1s comes courtesy of Olympus' proprietary BLS-50 rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, which is CIPA-rated at 450 shots on a charge (with 50% using flash). The camera ships with a dedicated battery charger in the product bundle.

[REVIEW––OLYMPUS STYLUS 1s]

 

This camera is a small update on the original Stylus 1, a “bridge” camera with a body form similar to the Olympus OMDs, but with a fixed zoom lens. The 12 megapixel sensor is slightly larger than average in this category which, together with a small...

This is a camera that demands to be taken seriously, which means that time spent reading the user manual is time well spent. The impressive lens and sensor combination produce beautiful jpegs and stunning RAW quality. There is a jpeg setting for Super...

There is a mysterious lever on the front of the camera, labelled f2, which toggles between manual and auto focus. Two Olympus owners known to us have returned from overseas with many out of focus pictures because the lever had been inadvertently...

This camera is outstanding precisely because it eschews the absurd zoom range and pixel count of its competitors. For anyone looking for the virtues of a mirrorless camera but who doesn’t need or want interchangeable lenses the Stylus 1s is an obvious...

Besides its obvious retro styling, what sets Olympus apart is that it designs cameras with integrated electronis not electronic gadgets that also take pictures. If you're a photographer looking for a very compact, walk around, high quality zoom (about...

Olympus Stylus 1s

 

Automatic viewfinder is great, as is the tilting screen

Quite a complicated bag of tricks; I am sure I will learn how to use it eventually.
