PREMIUM IMAGE QUALITY IN A COMPACT CAMERA.

Unleash your creative side with the Olympus XZ-10. Designed for those who want the quality of an SLR in a high-end point-and-shoot format, this camera provides a new, easy-to-use outlet for artistic expression. With the XZ-10 you'll capture high-quality still images and HD videos in any shooting environment thanks to its fast, super-bright, built-in Olympus iZuiko lens and its large, super-sensitive CMOS sensor.

Superior Bright, Super Fast f1.8 to 2.7 Lens

The iZuiko f1.8-2.7 4.7 – 23.5mm (26-130mm equivalent angle of view in 35mm cameras) digital lens is a 5x compact version of the legendary, high-quality ZUIKO Digital lenses featured with Olympus DSLRs. With a maximum aperture of f1.8 at wide-angle and f2.7 at telephoto, this lens assures fast shutter speeds for sharp low-light images. This aperture range also allows photographers to take portraits that highlight the subject by defocusing the background, a capability not possible in most compact cameras. The lens is specifically designed for clear, high-quality photographic performance with minimal ghosting or flare.

5x iZuiko Zoom Lens with 10x Super-Resolution Zoom

Based on the standards of Olympus DSLR lenses, the wide aperture of the iZuiko f1.8-2.7 allows a rich and vibrant range of photographic expression. It allows faster shutter speeds in low light – and it allows for a shallower depth of field than most compact point-and-shoot cameras. 10x Super-Resolution Zoom allowing you to capture close-ups images without any loss of image quality even in movie mode.

26mm Wide Lens

All the capabilities you need in one compact lens. The 5x optical zoom gets you close to the action while the 26mm Wide-Angle Lens lets you capture group shots and breathtaking panoramas.

Premium Image Quality, Low Light Performance

iHS Technology

A powerful, DSLR–quality Image Processor and a cutting-edge BSI CMOS sensor come together to dramatically improve image quality with spectacular low-light performance, blazing fast autofocus, enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition.
This family of technologies conquers challenging shooting conditions with improved light condensing efficiency, less noise and quick response time – twice as fast as traditional cameras – for definitively unmatched image quality.

12MP High Sensitivity BSI CMOS Sensor

An amazing 12 million pixels in the High-Sensitivity, High-Speed BSI CMOS sensor deliver unmatched image quality with less noise and improved image detail, especially in low-light situations.

TruePic VI

The XZ-10 pairs a high sensitivity 12 megapixel CMOS sensor with the TruePic™ V Image Processor to produce clear and colorful photos using all the pixel information from each image to provide the best digital images possible. The image processor is noted for accurate natural color, true-to-life flesh tones, brilliant blue skies and precise tonal expression; it also lowers image noise in photos shot at higher ISO settings, enabling great results in low-light situations

Backlight HDR

Shooting into backlight typically results in washed out, overly bright images. Backlight HDR Adjustment takes a collage of images at various exposure levels and blends them into one, perfectly exposed image.

ISO 12,800

The XZ-10 provides DSLR quality low light photos with an increased ISO sensitivity to 12,800.

AF Illuminator

The XZ-10 also features an AF illuminator to make it simple to focus in low-light situations

Low Light Mode

The XZ-10 has a built-in pop-up flash to illuminate low-light subjects, reduce red-eye and fill in dark areas.

In-Camera Creativity

Photo Story

You can easily create a combination of photos by selecting one of four themes. Each theme allows you to create a photo story with a certain flair with just a single touch. Choose Standard to capture three images in segments to tell a story. Select Speed that allows continuous seamless shooting of 5 images and combines them into one image, Choose Zoom-In/Zoom-Out to captures two images at two different distances into one image, or select Fun Frames and create images that mimic Film style and Polaroids.

Watch Video: Photo Story

11 Art Filters with 5 Art Effects

Express your creativity with special effects for you photos & HD Videos. Olympus’ Art Filters infuse familiar scenes with new an unexpected moods ranging from the exciting to the serene and from the whimsical to the mysterious.

Full HD Movie – 1920 x 1080 HD

The XZ-10’s easy-to-reach record button on the back of the camera body makes recording videos a breeze. Add style and artistic flair to your movies with Olympus Art Filters and Effects.

HDMI Output

For easy photo and video playback on your HDTV. The XZ-10 makes sharing your content easier than ever. Using the HDMI output, just connect the XZ-10 to your HDTV with an HDMI cable (not included) and navigate the camera's menus from the comfort of your couch. This is perfect for sharing your pictures and movies with an audience.

Advanced Control and Usability

Hybrid Control Ring and Customization

The XZ-10 offers advanced manual controls that experienced photographers expect. But, with the XZ-10, advanced features are easy to use. Similar to the XZ-2, the XZ-10 is equipped with a hybrid control ring, built around the lens, which allows users to easily assign function settings to their preferences.

3” Touch LCD

Whether composing still images or HD videos, photographers will appreciate the XZ-10’s sharp 3.0-inch touch LCD to frame and show off still images and High Definition (HD) movies. The LCD displays 920,000 dots in vivid color, reproduces colors and shades more accurately with deeper black tones, and consumes less power. The monitor also provides a wide viewing angle ensuring that images can be composed from even the most obscure angles. The XZ-10’s touch screen reacts quickly with the slightest touch and can focus by touch even if the subject is not in the center. Touch Screen display makes it easy to choose AF points, capture a picture, change camera settings, release the shutter or navigate controls, simply by touching the screen.
