Marketing Information

If you're looking to shoot top-quality stills and Full HD movies with all the right creative tools - but without all the size and weight of an SLR camera - the XZ-10 could be just perfect for you. It is equipped with iHS technology, bolstered by a high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and the same high-performance image processor used in our leading OM-D model. The i.ZUIKO DIGITAL 5x optical zoom lens (26-130mm, 35mm equivalent) has an extra-wide, super-bright maximum aperture (1:1.8) giving you super-sharp images in dim conditions without having to use a tripod or flash. The lack of noise is a big advantage when you zoom up close - you can boost magnification to 10x with no noticeable pixilation with the Super-resolution Zoom. Furthermore the XZ-10 lets you assign manual functions to the control ring around the lens so you can adjust settings including aperture, exposure time and program shift like a professional photographer - without taking your eye off your subject. You can also assign ISO or metering to the Fn button on the back, or PASM modes to the function wheel next to the LCD.

The 3.0" display has 920,000 dots and is touch-sensitive, enabling one-touch 'manual' autofocus. On top you can shoot in the Full HD Movie format or produce high-speed films at 120 fps for slow-motion playback. Alternatively, produce imaginative compositions from your stills with the Photo Story feature or spice up your work with one of 11 Art Filters - then share it all directly from your camera in your social networks via an external FlashAir™ card.

It's hard to believe that all this is packed inside our smallest compact X series camera to date!
