Professional Reviews and Comparisons
Impress has two Japanese-language review articles testing and comparing 6 high-end digital compact cameras: Olympus XZ-1 vs Canon G12 vs Canon S95 vs Nikon P7000 vs Panasonic LX5 vs Ricoh GR DIGITAL III.
The first article (read it in English) focuses on comparing camera bodies and menu functions, while the second (read it in English) has full-sized, full-resolution, test photos and sample video clips for you to judge image and video quality with. The second article also demonstrates various built-in digital art filter effects each camera has.
Tips, Tricks, Techniques and Camera Settings
This Impress article is written in Japanese (read it in English), but you might get a few DIY ideas for equipping the XZ-1 with adaptors and close-up lenses for macro and super-macro photography. The full-sized, full-resolution sample photos are fantastic to look at, if nothing else.
The latest firmware update version is v1.2 - visit DPReview for details.
