In this review, we will be comparing 1 and 1s, two Small Sensor Superzoom cameras by Olympus. Olympus 1 was introduced to market in November 2013 and Olympus 1s was launched in April 2015. There is 17 months difference between 1 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.
Both Olympus 1 and Olympus 1s cameras have 12.0MP 1/1.7" sensors. 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, Olympus 1 is ranked #6
with an overall score of 63 and Olympus 1s is ranked #4
with an overall score of 64.
Let's have a brief look at the main features of Olympus 1 and Olympus 1s before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Olympus 1 and Olympus 1s compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
