Product information
Put versatile photography in your hands with the Olympus Stylus 1 High Performance Compact Digital Camera.

Combined premium features

The Stylus 1 merges the best technology from previous models, the groundbreaking OM-D series and DSLR photography to create a better compact camera.

From its electronic viewfinder to its zoom lens and large, bright aperture, it's got the features to help you shoot consistently remarkable photos. And all of this is housed in a compact body that's easy to carry and discreet to use.

Photo power

Bring new elements into your photography, including enhanced depth of field effects and extra-long exposures for darker scenes.

A 12-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor (1/1.7″) allows the Stylus 1 to deliver shots with quality that rivals high-end models and versatility to capture different subjects in different styles.

Far-reaching lens

The sensor teams with a 28-300 mm i.ZUIKO digital lens that delivers cutting-edge precision to create beautiful images across a range of shooting conditions, all with less noise and enhanced detail in darker areas. The lens is comprised of ultra-slim cemented and ED lenses with a high-precision optical surface and ZERO coating.

A TruePic VI processor assists high-speed focusing, rapid continuous shooting and fast-moving videos, making it great for everything from compelling portraiture to detailed landscape work and sharp capture of moving subjects. Camera shake and subject blur are reduced thanks to the built-in lens-shift image stabilisation mechanism, which also contributes to the camera's slimline build.

Get closer to your subjects with its 10.7x optical zoom capabilities, achieve stunning detail and contrast levels with the constantly bright f/2.8 aperture. The lens retracts fully when you're not zooming, making it easier to carry and store.

Window on the world

The Olympus Stylus 1 comes fitted with an integrated electronic viewfinder, with an eye sensor that automatically switches between the viewfinder and rear LCD screen for faster, more fluid composition.

This 3” display provides a great facility for viewing images with a resolution of up to 1.04 million dots, and aids composition with its tiltable design that lets you achieve tricky angles and unique viewpoints on subjects. Best of all, touch autofocus gives you fingertip control of focus point definition and shutter release.

Enhanced exposure control

Thanks to an in-built ND filter, the Olympus Stylus 1 lets you adjust exposure times to capture all kinds of scenes in their best light. There are 11 Art Filters provided to help you get creative – toy with different effects and lend amazing artistic impact to your photos and videos.

Photo Story gives you the chance to enhance your images with your own flair – tell a photographic story as you combine several shots into a single-frame composition that's much like a collage.

Full HD videos and hi-res images

Shoot in RAW format to hold onto all the great image quality the 12-megepixel sensor can manage, so printed photos look even better. While JPEG files are smaller and more convenient to share and store, a RAW file is just that – packed with the raw, unadulterated goodness of the captured scene.

The camera also allows you to shoot 1080p Full HD videos accompanied by stunning stereo sound, so you can immortalise special events in moving form as well as stills. There's a range of creative effects available in-camera to give your movies an extra-special creative touch.

Ergonomic use and high performance from all angles

The Stylus 1 Compact Digital Camera offers multiple features to make using it as fluid and rewarding as possible.

The Fn1, Fn2 and movie buttons can be customised to meet your most frequent shooting needs, while the control ring and zoom level can be operated with the left hand, leaving you right hand free to release the shutter.

An integrated grip allows you to keep a firm hold and maintain stability of the ultra-slim 56.6 mm-wide body. Get snapping in no time with a lens cap that automatically opens and shuts.

Use the built-in WiFi feature to take shots from your phone, assign GPS locations to your images and share moments quickly and easily.

The Olympus Stylus 1 High Performance Compact Digital Camera offers enough firepower for the ambitious photographer without the bulk of a DSLR.

Ease of use even for a novice such as myself to this type of camera.
I like the fact that you have a good degree of manual operation.
The constant f2.8 is the major factor in my buying this camera.
Nothing at the moment..let's hope that continues.

The Stylus 1 is an excellent bridge camera which is ideally suited to travel and street photography. Lots to keep the creative amatuer interested, intuitive controls, has the build quality one would expect from Olympus. The 28- 300 F2.8 lens makes this a good option if you are fed up carrying lots of kit, but don't want to compromise picture quality.

To me, this is an almost perfect compromise between portability, features and quality. It is (just) pocketable, the focal range is very useful, the level of manual control excellent and the quality of the images produced very, very good indeed for such a small camera with a small sensor. I think a lot of this is down to the excellent lens Olympus have chosen. Has it totally replaced my Canon 7D SLR? No, but it gets pretty close for most uses and unlike the 7D it is now always with me when I need it.
There's no doubt that it is pricey, but this is no ordinary compact camera. There are also one or two features I wish were available (wider exposure bracketing, selectable levels of Art Filters) but these may be addressed by future firmware updates.
