Stylus 1 is a camera handfuls derived from another series bezlusterkowców – OM-D. Kompakt has to offer clear lens covering focal lengths range from 28 to 300 millimeters, while maintaining brightness for each value equal to f/2.8. missing only slightly larger matrix (although it would result in significantly larger sizes of equipment), because in the current situation the mapping information ends up around ISO 1600.

This equipment, which at the time of its launch has proved that we can do the perfect compact – with a fantastic viewfinder, bright lens, a large matrix, respectively, a fast processor and a nice ergonomics. The upside is also low noise even at higher sensitivities.

However, it is difficult to classify as low-budget bezlusterkowca; its quality and great photographs speak for themselves, after all. This unit, which most closely resembles the E-M5, though subtracted him some seals and inserted a 3-axis stabilization in place of the original, 5-axis machining. However, the camera is extremely interesting proposal; outside factors listed above, the Micro Four Thirds system, you will also find a plethora of accessories and a wide range of lenses.

At the time of release of the Sony NEX-7 cost much more; I'll get it for the price of 3000 gold was literally a dream. Now the body became cheaper, but still remains a love interest many of us. Good ergonomics combined with optimal image quality electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 million dots and effective image stabilization is the biggest advantages of this bezlusterkowca.

Equipment has to offer far better ergonomics (better knobs, seals, two slots for SD card), but more reliable, faster autofocus and optical viewfinder with 100 percent frame coverage. This equipment, which and Nikon, and users should be proud of for a long time.
