STYLUS 1: Super-slim.
Extra-powerful.
All-purpose.

Combining the best of STYLUS technologies, the pioneering OM-D series and D-SLR photography, the STYLUS 1 is a new breed of camera in a whole category of its own. Take the Electronic Viewfinder adapted from the OM-D E-M5 for instance, which gives you a field coverage of 100% and by that outperforms the field coverage of entry-level D-SLR cameras. Or the i.ZUIKO DIGITAL zoom lens with 10.7x magnification and a constant bright aperture of 1:2.8. Plus the large (1/1.7") BSI CMOS sensor, virtually unheard of in this class. These technological innovations are engineered into a remarkably compact body that is convenient to carry, whilst the zoom lens is designed with such ingenuity that it appears to disappear when retracted.
