STYLUS 1: Super-slim. Extra-powerful. All-purpose.
Combining the best of STYLUS technologies, the pioneering OM-D series and D-SLR photography, the STYLUS 1 is a new breed of camera in a whole category of its own. Take the Electronic Viewfinder adapted from the OM-D E-M5 for instance, which gives you a field coverage of 100% and by that outperforms the field coverage of entry-level D-SLR cameras. Or the i.ZUIKO DIGITAL zoom lens with 10.7x magnification and a constant bright aperture of 1:2.8. Plus the large (1/1.7″) BSI CMOS sensor, virtually unheard of in this class. These technological innovations are engineered into a remarkably compact body that is convenient to carry, whilst the zoom lens is designed with such ingenuity that it appears to disappear when retracted.
Advanced settings. Innovative technologies. Intuitive control.
Engineered without compromising on detail, the new STYLUS 1 is the absolute masterpiece of the STYLUS brand, setting a whole new standard in usability excellence. It is packed with advanced technologies and a full-featured control scheme that give you a similar shooting style and handling to D-SLR cameras – so sophisticated that adjusting settings and taking shots becomes intuitive. The hybrid control ring is a prime example of this instinctive, pro-style shooting – allowing you to switch between analogue and digital in an instant and giving you all your most-used settings at your fingertips. Enjoy all the flexible and fast usability you would expect from a top-of-the-line camera – plus the convenience of not having to carry around and switch between a range of heavy, bulky lenses.
Technologies that perform in every discipline.
Performing under pressure is what separates good cameras from great cameras. The STYLUS 1 won’t let you down, no matter what challenges come its way. That’s not least because it takes full advantage of the incredible OM-D E-M5 technologies it has adopted – like the high-powered Electronic Viewfinder for more control and a larger view than ever, even before you take your shots. Or the large BSI CMOS sensor (1/1.7″), which captures even more of the light that flows through the constant bright 1:2.8 aperture of the 10.7x zoom lens – giving you magnificently sharp shots every time at fast shutter speeds. Even in dim lighting conditions and at far distances when other cameras would only produce blurred images. Drawing too from the STYLUS technologies that have proven most useful, and built to a robust specification you can depend on, this is the highest-performing STYLUS we’ve ever produced.
Do you want to bring new aspects to your photography such as depth of field, or extra-long exposure times at night? The STYLUS 1 might look like a compact camera, but it produces outstanding quality shots to rival top-end cameras and allows you to excel in these more specialist styles. It is ideally equipped to achieve to this standard – with iHS. These technologies drive intelligent features that make sure you capture every moment just as you imagined it. iHS is also harnessed by the extra-large 12 MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor (1/1.7″), which makes full use of the i.ZUIKO DIGITAL lens with its state-of-the-art, Olympus-only precision – delivering excellent images in low light, with less noise and more detail in dark areas. Add to this the TruePic VI processor, which delivers super-fast focusing, high-speed sequential shooting and high-speed movies. With all this precise technology at your disposal, you can look forward to the remarkable image quality you expect from an exceptional high-end camera.
