The things you just don't expect. I found out yesterday the reason there is no such thing as a decent Nikon compact; They are built on behalf of Nikon by Sanyo. Sadly it turns out that many Olympus cameras are built by Sanyo too. There is software in the Linux world that lets you poke around inside any camera with Sanyo firmware - just Google it and you'll find compatibility with various Nikon and Olympus models. I can't find a very up to date version though. I'm very tempted by the new XZ-1 but wonder if any of you know if that is a genuine Olympus product through and through?
