Olympus Corp. began marketing the Stylus 1s, a successor of Stylus 1 on November 14 in Japan. The basic features are the same as the predecessor. There are additional functions like Small AF Target for easier focussing on a precise spot of the subject, and Stepping Zoom to set the zoom ratios at 28, 35, 50, 70, 100, 135, 200 and 300mm equivalent. The new grip is easier to hold.
The camera features a 1/1.7-inch Type 12 MP CMOS sensor, a 28-300mm f/2.8 zoom lens, a 1.44 million dot EVF and a 3-inch tilting LCD monitor. The camera measures 116.2x 87×56.5mm and weighs about 402g.
