Olympus Stylus XZ-2 Point & Shoot Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Aimed at the enthusiasts around the world, Olympus Stylus XZ-2 Point And Shoot is a little dynamite. The device succeeds Olympus Stylus XZ-1 and sports exactly the same 28-112 mm equivalent 4x zoom; it also has a really bright f1/8-2.5 aperture at its maximum; the device, however, exchanges the previous 1/1.63 inches 12MP CCD sensor for better with the new 1/1.7 inch CMOS chip, which measures 12MP. The processor of this device is also updated and it becomes the very new TruePic V processor, another up gradation involves the up gradation from 610k dot OLED screen to a 920k LCD touch-screen. The AF system of Olympus XZ-2 is much better with the availability of 35 area contrast detect system which is much like that on the previous Olympus PEN models, the sensitivity range of the device certainly extends beyond the range of XZ1 with 6400 ISO reaching a new maximum at 12800 ISO. As mentioned before the existence of a new sensor and processor, what they do is they increment the performance of our device to 5 frames per second and now Olympus XS-2 boasts Full HD 1080p video recording. Everything being said and done Olympus XZ-2 is really a decent evolution from its predecessor, a very popular model which achieved its fame because of the combination of excellent low light performance in a compact format and is still kept in the line-up of Stylus cameras. But since its arrival in 2011, many things have changed; there is a much wider variety of dvices to choose from if you want a fixed lens compact camera in your pocket which has a big sensor and a bright lens. The biggest rival of our reviewed device is Panasonic Lumic LX7, and also Nikon Coolpix A both of which represent entirely different proposition. There is a large APS-C sensor on Nikon Coolpix A and no optical low pass filter, with that the device is bound to cross the barriers set up by compact devices in terms of image quality. On the other hand Panasonic Lumix LX 7 has snatched the title of brightest lens from Olympus XZ-2. So yes, all the three manufacturers are looking to dominate the market with these products.

 

Design and Build Quality

Olympus Stylus XZ-2 is a little on the heavy end and is also a bit larger. The exact dimensions of this device measure 113mm x 65mm x 48mm and the kerb weight clocks 346 grams when included with a battery and SD card. When you look at the camera from its front, it looks really more angular, sort of more enthusiasts oriented and less customer compact than Olympus Stylus XZ-1. Unexpectedly, the top panel of the device is no longer a flat plane, but it dips downs so as to house the shutter release and mode dial functions. The front plane is also more filled-up with the inclusion of a handgrip which is detachable and a manual focus lever which has a function button at its centre. The detachable grip, quite honestly is a brilliant idea. Once you attach the device with a plastic screw it really feels and looks like it is a part of the camera and allows really comfortable and secure grip to your fingers. But if you are one of those people who do not prefer any external material on the surface, you can easily remove it. Round the back of the device here is also a thumb grip which is made of the same textured material, this makes single handed operation more secure and comfortable.

Focus and Face Detection

Number of AF points in Olympus Stylus XZ-2 is pretty decent for a compact camera, with the number being 35. In practice, the device surprisingly seems as quick as any device of Olympus PEN range, which now holds an esteem reputation of speed and accuracy in the global market. The touch screen of the device can be tapped to meter and focus, or to meter, focus and shoot in a single operation, but if more conventional approach is preferred you can turn it off, in which case tapping on it selects just one of the 35 AF areas.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Olympus XZ-2 flaunts pretty much the same 4x zoom lens which was on its elder brother, the range being the same too, 6-24mm with 35mm equivalent being 28-112mm. The maximum aperture is f/1.8-f/2.5, these are really worthy figures which feature quite respectable wide angle and portrait zoom. Panasonic Lumix LX-7 has a similar 3.7 mm focal range but it starts from 24mm equivalent wide angle with its shorter telephoto range of 90mm which is really wonderfully suited for portraiture.

 

Screen and Menus

As mentioned above, Olympus XZ-2 sports a 3-inch LCD screen which has around 920,000 RGB dots which provide and effective resolution of 640 x 480 with default 3:2 aspect ratio. Again, as mentioned before, the device replaces the 620k dot OLED screen of Olympus XZ-1, such that although the display has been changed, the newer screen is of higher resolution and is really more touch sensitive. The display of Olympus XZ-2 is capacitive type, and is similar to those which we normally use on smartphones, being that it is fairly very responsive. Now, as mentioned earlier, the screen is not really as central to the operations as physical controls.

Battery

Olympus Stlylus XZ-2 Point & Shoot is powered by almost the same LI-90B battery which was earlier spotted on Olympus Tough T-G1 and is rated at 1270 mAh and this hence provides more than sufficient power to work for 310 shots on full charge, this figure is however, marginally 10 shots down from 320 shots of Olympus X-Z1 which works on the smaller LI-50B battery. While this power is nothing when you compare it with what we see on a DSLR, 320 shots is quite respectable for a compact device and matches the 330 shots quoted by Panasonnic Lumix LX-7 and much more than Canon’s 200 in Canon PowerShot S110.

Video Mode

Olympus Stylus XZ-2 has been given a very impressive feature when we talk about the video quality for a compact device, in addition to Full HD 1080p at 30fps which is undoubtedly its headline feature; the 720p HD 30fps mode is also offered. The 3:2 SD mode of Olympus XZ-1 is dropped and the files are encoded in H.264 codec and are saved as QuickTime.mov files. No published data for bit rate has been selected but the videos which have been recorded earlier only show that the average bit rate is arounf 20 Mbps which results in around 180MB per minute of footage. For 29 minutes you can continuously record or you can record upto 4 GB whicheve comes sooner. There is absolutely no movie position on Olympus XZ-2’s mode dial and pressing the movie record button in any XYZ mode makes the recording to begin automatically. Immediately, aperture, shutter speed and ISO sensitivity all are set and regardless of the position on movie dial you just cannot adjust the exposure setting manually, the exposure compensation can still be easily set by +/- 3EV before pressing the recording button.

 

Sensors

Olympus Stylus XZ-2 comes fitting with a very new 12 MP CMOS sensor which has the physical size of rare 1/1.7 inches.

 

Pros

* Fast and Highly Accurate AF

Adaptable three mode lens ring

Flip out 3 inch LCD with 920,000 dot pixels

Accessory port for optional EVF

 

 

 

Cons

Bad performance on high ISO noise

Average continuous shooting

Touch screen inactive for movie shooting purposes

Only 2 video modes for the device.
