Olympus has today unveiled the Stylus 1 as a camera combining DSLR shooting style with a portable design.

Marketed as a ‘premium compact’ styled on the Olympus OM-D, the Stylus 1 features a 12-million-pixel 1/1.7in-size CMOS imaging sensor.

Its ‘constant’ f/2.8 lens is designed to deliver the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 28-300mm zoom.

The Wi-Fi-equipped model incorporates a 1.44-million-dot EVF borrowed from the E-M5, and a tiltable touchscreen.

The black-bodied Stylus 1 is due in shops from late November, priced £549.99.

    As an amateur photographer I think all the new products give us a lot more choice how we as consumers spend are hard earned cash. We are lucky company’s like Sony and Panasonic have joined in this market and are not letting the pre-digital camera makers have it all their own way. I am seriously thinking of changing to Sony. I actually like EVFs.
