Product Description

Product Description

Colour No.2 for the XZ-2. The award-winning Olympus STYLUS flagship XZ-2 is now available for the first time in white (as well as black). Professionals and ambitious hobby photographers appreciate the XZ-2 for its outstanding image quality that stems in part from its large 1/1.7” backlit CMOS sensor. It’s also popular for its full range of customisable manual controls and accessories, which are reminiscent of a system camera. The LCD on the XZ-2 is tiltable to help with shooting low down or above head height and it goes one better than the new XZ-10 with a digital/analogue customisable hybrid control ring. Like a system camera, the XZ-2 has an accessory port and is compatible with a wide range of dedicated add-ons that includes an external flash, electronic viewfinder, automatic lens cap, body jacket and a dedicated underwater housing.

I've had the Olympus XZ-2 for about a month now and am thrilled with the results. The camera itself, while not exactly pocket-sized, is comfortable and light enough to hold onto (with a wrist strap). But the results from this little marvel are a revelation to me (having come from a Canon SLR bkg). There are a full raft of manual options, the dial ring around the lens coupled with the thumbwheel at the rear is an intuitive, ergonomic and fast method of adjusting aperture and ss. Manual focus option with magnification assist (and the ability to switch effortlessly) is awesome, and this coupled with the flip screen makes the little XZ-2 a street-shooter's dream. The ultra close macro function gets you right into those little insect and flower faces! and the superfast f/1.8 renders (to my eye) nice, smooth bokeh. I find the menu system simple, easy and affording whatever level of granularity you need to suit your own shooting demands. Low-light shooting has turned up some nicely lit results for me and, shooting everything in RAW is simple with Olympus' bundled viewer/editor software which isn't a million miles away from Lightroom. I run my shots through Adobe DNG convertor and process in Photoshop but the results with Olympus Viewer software are more than adequate. Overall, I love my XZ-2. It's become my go-to camera, fits in my jacket pocket, is with me everywhere and has given me a lot of fun getting places and trying stuff that I'd previously felt encumbered while running with the SLR. I've had zero issues and would highly recommend. Thanks for reading.

Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Overall Impression

The leap in quality from my old Canon Ixus to this Olympus XZ-2 is hard to describe. Suffice it to say that for the first two weeks of owning this camera I wondered whether it was actually possible to take a bad photo with this. From taking photos in the full sun on the beach in the south of Spain to shooting photos of my son's school play in a darkened hall - shots that would never have come out with anything I have used before just aren't a problem for this amazing piece of equipment. Photos are sharp - perfectly focussed and the colours are beautiful. As an every-day use camera I can't fault it.

The Niggles

It only gets four stars because of a couple of niggles.

(1) Useless instruction manual shipped
Much to my surprise and relief the box contained 180 page instruction manual. At last a technical device with decent instructions I thought. Unfortunately, a mere 6 pages were in English after which the same useless instructions were repeated in a further 28 languages. I wouldn't mind so much if those 6 pages told you even a quarter of what you need to know about the camera - but they don't even come close. So the first thing you have to do if you're anything like me is go to the Olympus website and print of the proper instruction manual (102 pages). Why oh why can't they put that one in the box?
Unfortunately as it took me a few weeks to get round to printing the manual off, I managed to loose an entire evening's photos as I hadn't realised that the lever on the front of the camera switched the auto focus off leaving me with a disastrous set of shots.

My wife has had an XZ-1 for a while now and the results she gets from it are amazing; sharpness and colour being top notch. And it is easy to use once you get used to the olympus menu layouts.
I have always been an olympus fan since the year dot and have been using an E-5 and an E-1 for sometime now. Great cameras and great series of Zuiko lenses.
I must admit I have always fancied a well made point and shoot camera which you can keep in your pocket for use at a moments notice, so I went for an XZ-2 at Christmas.
Well not being biased or anything(well maybe a little bit), I opted for an XZ-2 based on the positive experiences of the XZ-1. I have not been disappointed, indeed I have been absolutely delighted with my purchase.
Love the weight and balance of this little camera, its grip, the tilting LCD screen and the upgraded sensor. Its i-zuiko lens is nice and fast and gives a great sharp focus and the rich colours are really pleasing. Only being playing with this little beauty for a few days but already thinking olympus have a winner on their hands. Its performance in low light is excellent and the multi point AF system works well. Haven't really played with the video yet but not really interested in video anyway. Must admit it is a bit on the expensive side but based on my early brief experience, its worth every penny or maybe that should be 'pound'. Brilliant new compact camera, well done Olympus, a worthy point and shoot compact to sit alongside the equally excellent Pen range. Maybe that could be a problem for this super little camera as its price takes it into the Pen range pricing, especially the last generation Pens.
I'm really pleased I bought this camera!!!!

This replaced an earlier model, which my husband dropped, he will often use a 'proper ' camera, but this ,in his opinion is THE best little digital camera. He takes it everywhere, as well as the larger camera and the pics are top quality. Amazing features. Would definitely recommend .
