XZ-2 Stylus Digital Camera Features:

  • Point. Shoot. Be amazed.
    Combine the ease-of-use of a point and shoot with the image quality of a more advanced camera and you get the Olympus XZ-2. This premium compact helps you push the creative envelope with an arsenal of amazing technology. A super-fast f1.8 iZuiko lens and a large, high-sensitivity BSI (Backside-Illuminated) CMOS Sensor help capture brilliant low light shots. Experienced photographers will love how the XZ-2's full manual controls are effortless to access and use. Feed your creative side with 11 Art Filters and 5 Effects, one-touch HD video and an accessory port for flashes and viewfinders. The XZ-2. Pro features packed in one awesomely creative compact.

  • 4X iZUIKO Zoom Lens
    Based on the standards of Olympus DSLR lenses, with the XZ-2's 4x wide-angle optical zoom and 4x digital zoom, you can get close to the action. But due to the F1.8 lens it allows for shallower depth of field than most compact point and shoot cameras.

  • 28MM Equivalent Wide Lens
    All the capabilities you need in one compact lens. The 4x optical zoom gets you close to the action while the 28mm Equivalent Wide-Angle Lens lets you capture group shots and breathtaking panoramas.

  • IHS Technology
    The powerful TruePic VI, SLR-quality Image Processor and a cutting edge BSI CMOS sensor come together to dramatically improve image quality with spectacular low-light performance and blazing autofocus speed. These are combined with enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition and super-resolution zoom.

    This family of technologies conquers challenging shooting conditions with improved light condensing efficiency, less noise and quick response time - twice as fast as traditional cameras - for definitively unmatched image quality.

  • 12MP High Sensitivity BSI CMOS Sensor
    An amazing 12 million pixels in the High-Sensitivity, High-Speed BSI CMOS sensor deliver unmatched image quality with less noise and improved image detail, especially in low-light situations.

  • High Quality, Newly Designed User Interface
    The new design of the XZ-2's interface takes full advantage of the 3-in., 920,000-pixel VGA display. Menu navigation is made easier with a sleek and easy-to-see design.

    The XZ-2 pairs a high sensitivity 12 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor with the TruePic™ VI Image Processor to produce clear and colorful photos. The image processor is noted for accurate natural color, true-to-life flesh tones, brilliant blue skies and precise tonal expression; it also lowers image noise in photos shot at higher ISO settings, enabling great results in low-light situations.

  • Backlight HDR
    Shooting into backlight typically results in washed out, overly bright images. Backlight HDR Adjustment takes a collage of images at various exposure levels and blends them into one, perfectly exposed image.

  • ISO 12,800
    The XZ-2 provides DSLR quality low light photos with an increased ISO sensitivity to 12,800.

  • AF Illuminator
    The XZ-2 also features an AF illuminator to make it simple to focus in low-light situations.

  • Low Light Mode
    The XZ-2 has an easily accessible built-in pop-up flash to illuminate low-light subjects, reduce red-eye and fill in dark areas.

  • 3 Inch Swivel Touch LCD
    Capture your shots instantly with the XZ-2's FAST AF and responsive touch screen. Just touch the screen to focus on your subject and release the shutter. Whether composing still images or HD videos, photographers will appreciate the XZ-2's sharp 3.0-inch tilt and touch LCD to frame and show off still images and High Definition (HD) movies. The LCD displays 920,000 dots in vivid color, reproduces colors and shades more accurately with deeper black tones.

  • Accessory Port
    The XZ-2 includes a port for accessories including Flashes, MAL-1 Macro light, SEMA-1 Microphone adapter set and VF-2 or VF-3 detachable electronic viewfinders.

  • Hybrid Control Ring And Customization
    The XZ-2 is equipped with the world's first hybrid control ring, built around the lens, which allows users to easily assign function settings to their preferences as well as switch between analog and digital operation of the ring. The digital operation provides a solid click on controls, whereas the analog operation offers a smooth, gliding feeling. When the Fn 2 lever next to the lens is placed downward, the ring around the lens switches to analog control so it can be used as a focus or a zoom ring. If the lever is placed at an angle, the ring around the lens switches to digital control to change exposure-related settings quickly and easily. This feature enables fine-tuning of the focus in macro, composition selection when shooting, and exposure adjustment all without looking away from subjects.
