Olympus Stylus XZ-2 review


Price as reviewed:


White balance and colour

The colours produced by the XZ-2 are very good. Landscape images look natural, with good colour rendition, particularly in the natural setting.

The standard setting is slightly more vivid, with a higher contrast, producing great punchy images, particularly with the beautiful autumn colours that were present at the time the camera was tested.

Image: Even in its default setting the colours are rich and vivid
