5 out of 5 eggsGreat In Low Light

Pros: Great in Low Light Conditions, Lots of Different Filters to Customize Your Before Pictures, Fits In Pants Pocket, Made of Sturdy, Easy To Work, Switching To Making Videos is Easy with the touch of a button, hot shoe

Cons: Len's Cap Falls Off the Camera When Turned on I had to purchase a lens cover to protect the camera, Battery Compartment has weak Lock, Small Area for Finger Placement

Other Thoughts: I purchase this camera for it's low light picture ability. I was not disappointed! I took the camera on a trip to Peru and got great pictures and vids. Traveling from the farmland to the major cities this camera performs. It has so many features that I'm still working through. I had the camera setup for 3 different types of shots, that were easy to switch to. This is my favorite camera.

5 out of 5 eggsJoy of photography

Pros: Great little camera!

OLYMPUS did a great job on design and build. It is very solid feel and classic look.

F1.8 is a huge benefit while shoot indoor or low light.
Able to capture my 2 year old son's fast action under ISO100!
Nice and clear picture until ISO800.

And man, that OLED screen shows the most beautiful color I ever seen.

Plus my wife have a lots of fun on it's Art mode.

And newegg only ask $399.99 with free shipping!
Got it only two days later just before went to the Zoo.

Henry's guy said it must come from the black market and it's 0 profit for them.

Cons: The dial wheel on top right corner may cause miss dial if you have a powerful paw.

It will be even better if it comes with leather case, but ...

Other Thoughts: When using this camera it is really lots of fun.
You can forgot you are using a camera just enjoy the photo.

The lens cap will pop by itself, it is a small surprise, but an good one.

4 out of 5 eggsOlympus XZ-1

Pros: -Lot of manual control, those that are prior DSLR users or users of DSLR's will appreciate this over other point and shoots as it is more "advanced".
-Bracketing for HDR nice function
- RAW + JPEG option
-Can choose where to focus "roughly"
F/stop 1.8
-Hot Shoe for larger flash

Cons: -Pricey
-Little bit large for being Pocket-able... however wouldn't recommend sticking any camera in your pocket unless it is "rugged" / "shock proof" and those... are shoddy
-CCD sensor rather than a CMOS sensor
-No external charger ... ultra-lame! got to buy one if you want one ..

Other Thoughts: I would of bought an entry level DSLR, however I needed a compact and more of an incognito camera so hopefully I don't get instantly robbed. In addition to one that has the more manual options possible, getting a more DSLR feel.

Quality is much better than a normal PAS(pointandshoot) .. as it should be for this much money. Beats G12 in my opinion as G12 is massive in comparison and not as good of a lens and same sensor as S95.

BOTTOM-LINE: If you need/want a compact camera with lots of manual functions get it. However if you can roll with a larger DSLR entry level use your 500 bucks towards that instead. However keep in mind lenses will cost you some money in addition.

also wish it was 1080p rather than just 720p, however I care about the photos more than the video anyway so not a huge deal. It is a camera after all not a video-camera...
