Resurrecting an old thread here with my newly acquired XZ-1. I'm really impressed with this little camera so far. I was goofing around with some Cactus Triggers and a Canon 430 EX II off-camera the other day and shot this for a thread on Rangefinder Forum:
Really loving this camera. I don't mind the slightly larger size as compared to some of the other cameras in it's class. The color from this camera really is something unique. It definitely has that "Olympus" look. I'd love to see some of you guys update this thread at some point. Interested to see if there are any other XZ-1's still kicking around out there.

I dont much care if I haven't got the latest and greatest. The little XZ-1 still performs. It didnt suddenly not work anymore when newer ones were released.

Wow, brilliant shot, Sue, the XZ-1 can sure get close. BTW, only noticed your signature now---very nice and eclectic kit!

Matthew - amazing detail on the X-700 and watch. That is one sharp lens!

My refurbished XZ1 just arrived yesterday and I played around with it taking my pet shots as always for test shots. Though I own an RX100 I'm just impressed by the quality of the JPEGS it truly retains that unique Olympus colors.

I'm getting some Oly GAS from this thread.

Same here :-)
And while we are at it, can somebody of you XZ owners tell me something? I believe that in manual mode the ring around lens controls the aperture and spinning the control wheel on the back controls the shutter speed. As supposedly one can customize a lot Oly cameras, can you invert the two in M mode and control the shutter speed with lens ring? On my Nikon D70 I can choose which dial controls what in M mode, and I think I've read you can do the same on Fuji X10. But here?
