Premium Image Quality in a Compact Camera.
Unleash your creative side with the Olympus XZ-10. Designed for those who want excellent image quality in a high-end point-and-shoot format, this camera provides a new, easy-to-use outlet for artistic expression. With the XZ-10 you'll capture high-quality still images and HD videos in virtually any shooting environment thanks to its fast, super-bright, built-in Olympus iZuiko lens and its quick, super-sensitive CMOS sensor.
Superior Bright, Super Fast f1.8 to 2.7 Lens
The iZuiko f1.8-2.7 4.7 - 23.5mm (26-130mm equivalent angle of view in 35mm cameras) digital lens is a 5x compact version of the legendary, high-quality ZUIKO Digital lenses featured with Olympus DSLRs. With a maximum aperture of f1.8 at wide-angle and f2.7 at telephoto, this lens assures fast shutter speeds for sharp low-light images. This aperture range also allows photographers to take portraits that highlight the subject by defocusing the background, a capability not possible in most compact cameras. The lens is specifically designed for clear, high-quality photographic performance with minimal ghosting or flare.
5x iZuiko Zoom Lens with 10x Super-Resolution Zoom
Based on the standards of Olympus DSLR lenses, the wide aperture of the iZuiko f1.8-2.7 allows a rich and vibrant range of photographic expression. It allows faster shutter speeds in low light - and it allows for a shallower depth of field than most compact point-and-shoot cameras. 10x Super-Resolution Zoom allowing you to capture close-ups images without any loss of image quality even in movie mode.
26mm Wide Lens
All the capabilities you need in one compact lens. The 5x optical zoom gets you close to the action while the 26mm Wide-Angle Lens lets you capture group shots and breathtaking panoramas.
Premium Image Quality, Low Light Performance
A powerful, DSLR-quality Image Processor and a cutting-edge BSI CMOS sensor come together to dramatically improve image quality with spectacular low-light performance, blazing fast autofocus, enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition.
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.
The XZ-10 pairs a high sensitivity 12 megapixel CMOS sensor with the TruePic V Image Processor to produce clear and colorful photos using all the pixel information from each image to provide the best digital images possible. 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.
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.
The XZ-10 captures difficult, low light photos with an increased ISO sensitivity to 12,800.
The XZ-10 also features an AF illuminator to make it simple to focus in low-light situations
Low Light Mode
The XZ-10 has a built-in pop-up flash to illuminate low-light subjects, reduce red-eye and fill in dark areas.
You can easily create a combination of photos by selecting one of four themes. Each theme allows you to create a photo story with a certain flair with just a single touch. Choose Standard to capture three images in segments to tell a story. Select Speed that allows continuous seamless shooting of 5 images and combines them into one image, Choose Zoom-In/Zoom-Out to captures two images at two different distances into one image, or select Fun Frames and create images that mimic Film style and Polaroids.
