The Olympus XZ-1 high end digital compact camera has received a Red Dot award from a jury of internationally renowned designers. Conceived by Takeshi Nohara and Kensei Ito, the design of the Olympus XZ-1 manages to be functional and classy at the same time, thanks to clean lines and a number of well-executed ideas such as a multi-purpose click-stop dial around the lens housing and a rear control wheel encircling the four-way pad. Founded in 1955, the Red Dot Design Award is one of the most prestigious international design competitions in the world.
