In this review, we will be comparing 1s and S1, two Small Sensor Superzoom cameras from Olympus and Fujifilm. Olympus 1s was introduced to market in April 2015 and Fujifilm S1 was launched in January 2014. There is 15 months difference between 1s and S1 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.
Olympus 1s has a 12.0MP 1/1.7" sensor whereas Fujifilm S1 has a 16.0MP 1/2.3" 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 244 cameras in this class, Olympus 1s is ranked #4
with an overall score of 64 and Fujifilm S1 is ranked #3
with an overall score of 64.
Let's have a brief look at the main features of Olympus 1s and Fujifilm S1 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Olympus 1s and Fujifilm S1 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
