Olympus XZ-1 reviews, in Stock status and contest!


Infosyncworld tested the new Olympus XZ-1: “The Olympus XZ-1 matched Canon’s best fixed lens warriors when it came to still image quality, and it proved itself a worthy tool to have in the field. It’s the Mini Me of PEN Land, and we welcome it with open arms.

There is a hands-on report at Cameraguide: “The XZ-1 also proved itself to be generally more satisfying to use than the competition. At this point we’ve tested all the major players in the advanced compact sector and we can say with some confidence that the XZ-1 was more enjoyable and more fun to use than all of them.

Photography Blog and Olympus are giving away a fantastic Olympus XZ-1 premium compact camera, worth £399.99 / $499.99.

The XZ-1 is in Stock almost everywhere! Click those direct links to check price and availability: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus US store, FocusCamera, eBay

    The money they can make selling our email address to spammers will more than pay for the camera they are giving away.
    (Im just saying this to discourage you guys from entering)

    ahm sorry….. but what skills this unwashed subject in the video has to make a judgement?

    i mean in times of the internet everyone thinks he is a tester and has something to say…. but most of the times they have not much more clue then my grandma.

    i smell him through the monitor…..

  • This is not a contest, this is a fucking lottery. Admin, I know you need news and visitors to make your site financially self-sufficient but please don’t do that…

    • admin

      ??? Do you really think I posted that news form photographyblog to get more visits?
      I would have posted fake or freely invented rumors instead if I really want visits :)
      P.S.: of course I don’ do that!

      • I’m generally not on the side of the whiners but I thought I would express my disapproval to a not-so-useful post… ;)
        Keep up the good works!

    Here’s my negative comment. Quit whining guys. Admin is passing on the info you don’t gave to use it, that’s your choice.

  • David

    The contest is already over. It closed 12 midday GMT on Monday 21st March 2011

      It is still February!

    LOL, thanks, I feel like a total idiot. I guess I saw the day and didn’t even question what month we are in. Thanks for the correction

  • OMG! His ALIEN thumb scares the shit out of we!

  • I think he speaks well. He sounds interested in the subject matter and can form a sentence. Most guys on the net sound bored or hesitant or both.
    Just cos he wears a t-shirt doesn’t mean he’s an idiot. Or smelly.
    You’re right about the bendy alien thumb though.

      The only thing that stinks is those obnoxious comments.

  • GreyOwl

    admin, I’m suprised that this site allows Elniorg\’s Journeys to use foul language when posting. Not the place for it.

  • DonTom

    I didn’t watch the video, but I’m gonna pass on the ZX-1, even if it’s being given away. The default NR on the E-PL1 is way over the top, and I’m a JPEG guy…….I couldn’t put up with being unable to adjust it.
    If Olly fix that, I’ll be in with both feet.

  • latam

    totally agree with jonathan
