In this review, we will be comparing S1 and 1s, two Small Sensor Superzoom cameras from Fujifilm and Olympus. Fujifilm S1 was introduced to market in January 2014 and Olympus 1s was launched in April 2015. There is 15 months difference between S1 and 1s so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger 1s, especially in sensor tech.
Fujifilm S1 has a 16.0MP 1/2.3" sensor whereas Olympus 1s has a 12.0MP 1/1.7" sensor. We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Small Sensor Superzoom cameras. Out of 243 cameras in this class, Fujifilm S1 is ranked #3
with an overall score of 64 and Olympus 1s is ranked #4
with an overall score of 64.
