I now use my SLR extremely rarely, in favor of the XZ-1. Not that the equipment into my SLR somehow flaws, on the contrary, it is a very solid set of lenses and accessories, but also because it is not suitable for spontaneous, and simpler times. Although mobile camera in turn has come to replace both SLR and compact camera in many situations, it is XZ-1 I pick up when I want a nice photo.
Lens and sensor high class in this camera. Today, with its 2,300 kr, it is an excellent purchase.
For anyone thinking of taking videos: choose a different camera! The autofocus hunts focus all the time, which destroys the videos (even with the latest firmware). With the exception of possibly perfect lighting conditions, so is the video portion of the camera is just too bad. Are you looking for sunny, nice days so it works satisfactorily enough, but at least I film are not always in such circumstances.
My boyfriend has a Sony in the price range SEK 2000, and it is far far better when it comes to taking videos, even though it is essentially an expensive camera. XZ-1 is simply exceptionally poor when it comes to filming.
But for still photographs stands up, this camera remains strong in the competition, and it's a given purchase for those who want a camera whose lens has a large aperture, the sensor with good ISO performance and access to RAW files.
