The Perfect Small Business Camera?

Wired: The Perfect Small Business Camera?

It’s small, it offers pro-style manual controls, a large high-quality sensor and HD video capability. It could be the perfect all-in-one imaging device for small business website managers.

“LAS VEGAS — Olympus has announced the rather hot-looking XZ1, an enthusiast compact camera that goes up against the Panasonic LX-5, the Canon G12 and Nikon’s P7000.

As befits this kind of camera, gimmicks are kept to a minimum, and pro-level features dominate. Thus there is a large 1/1.63-inch sensor (similar to the 1/1.7-inch sensor in the Canon G12 and S95) with 10 megapixels, a very fast lens (ƒ1.8 at 28mm rising to a still great ƒ2.5 at 112mm). Maximum ISO is a see-in-the-dark 6400, and up top you’ll find an accessory shoe for an optional electronic viewfinder and a flash. And speaking of flash, the XZ1 can wirelessly control off-camera flashes, too.”
