Olympus has announced that they will be adding to their X-Series of compact cameras with the Stylus XZ-10, which not only brings about the same features of the company’s flagship Stylus XZ-2, but in a more “stealthy” body. While most cameras are capable of handling low-light situations, the Stylus XZ-10 should do better than some of the competition, especially with its f/1.8 lens at its widest. This will allow photographers to snap photos in low-light scenarios without having to resort to using camera flash which usually results in rather harshly lit photos.
On top of that, the Stylus XZ-10 will come with the ability to adjust your camera settings manually, such as its customizable control ring around the lens that allows for manual adjustment of settings such as aperture, exposure, and etc., giving you more control over the shooting, ISO up to 6400, a 12MP backlit CMOS sensor, and with your images processed by the TruePic VI image processor. The Stylus XZ-10 will also be capable of shooting from 26mm at its widest, to 130mm at its longest with a iZuiko Digital 5x optical zoom lens.
For videographers, the Stylus XZ-10 will capture videos in HD quality at 120fps, Full HD video quality capture with stereo sound, Multi-Motion Movie IS image stabilization which should help with the camera shakes during recording, along with a touchscreen display which not only will focus on the target subject, but can also act as a shutter release. If the Olympus Stylus XZ-10 sounds like a camera you wouldn’t mind picking up, it is expected to go on sale in the US come late March 2013 and will be priced around $399.99.
