The Olympus STYLUS 1 is the latest compact camera from Olympus, and it has loads of great features for the photographer who wants to move on from a standard compact to something a little more advanced. Here, we round up some of the best features the STYLUS 1 has to offer:
Long zoom range - The Olympus STYLUS 1 features a 28-300mm lens, which is ideal for a wide range of photography subjects. From macro images with depth to landscapes in low light and portrait images, the STYLUS 1 can do it all.
Hybrid control ring - The hybrid control ring can provide instant access to all your favourite functions, including adjusting the aperture or shutter speed in an instance. It's customisable, so you can assign other functions to it, too.
Electronic Viewfinder - The EVF backlit viewfinder automatically tones down its brightness, giving the ability to view images easily in dazzling light. You can also preview all the effects and art filters through the viewfinder, too.
Built in Wi-Fi - The built in Wi-Fi function enables you to shoot wirelessly from your mobile, as well as assign GPS and share your shots straight from the camera. Wirelessly controlling the camera through your phone is ideal for slow shutter speed photography and controlling the camera from a distance.
RAW Image Capability - The STYLUS 1 features the ability to shoot RAW, so you don't lose any of the data in your photos when your store or print out your pictures. This is something that's not seen on many other advanced compact models.
