Digital Camera Review: Olympus XZ-2

by K.T. Bradford on April 14, 2013

Olympus Stylus XZ-2 iHSThe XZ-2's 12MP sensor, 4x zoom lens, image processor and fast auto focus speed combine for impressive photo quality from a camera this compact. The 28-112mm equivalent lens is super fast at f/1.8-2.5 and the resulting pictures have minimal noise, accurate tone and look really good at full size. However, don't look to this camera if you're uncomfortable out of auto mode. This is more for people who know how to work manual settings to their advantage.
