Starting with the handling of the camera, the XZ-1 is offers a comfortable single hand grip, thanks to the dimpled rubber grip for the thumb. However, it would have been better had there been a curvature or a rubberized grip on the front. The shutter release button, zoom rocker and mode dial, all are appropriately placed for strain-free access. The dedicated button for recording videos is also conveniently located right next to the thumb grip.
ISO sensitivity test
A notable feature of the XZ-1 is that it allows a fine control over the ISO. Instead of one stop, which is usually the case in most cameras, here you get 1/3 stop. So instead of jumping from ISO 100 to 200, you can set the values to 125 and 160. The range starts from ISO 100 and goes way up to 6400.
The noise is very much under control at up to ISO 400. From there on, it starts getting worse with graininess. The results at ISO 800 are also acceptable, if you reduce the image size. The same goes with ISO 1600 and 3200, but at 100 percent zoom, you’ll notice a watercolour effect occurring.
