EVOLT

Digital Camera Info has published a full review of the Olympus E-520.

There’s one of the best Live View modes on the market (with auto focus), a good image stabilization system that’s built into the body, comprehensive presets and a high degree of customizability and control. However, the test results for noise levels, white balance and dynamic range were so poor that they dragged down an otherwise good camera.

PhotgraphyBLOG has published a full review of the Olympus E-520.

On the surface, the new Olympus E-520 looks very similar to the 1-year old E-510 model that it replaces. The E520 retains some key features from its predecessor; the same 10 megapixel LiveMOS sensor, Supersonic Wave Filter, and body-integrated image stabilisation are all present and correct. What have Olympus added then to tempt you to part with £500 / $750 of your hard-earned cash? There’s a bigger 2.7 inch LCD screen, 3.5fps continuous shooting speed, the introduction of Shadow Adjustment Technology, Face Detection and more convenient auto-focus options in Live View, and wireless TTL flash control. Zoltan Arva-Toth finds out if the evolutionary Olympus E-520 has enough new features to survive in the cut-throat world of the entry-level DSLR market.

Trusted Reviews has published a review of the Olympus E-420.

There’s very little to criticise in the overall specification and performance of the E-420. I like it’s size – it’s ideal for travelling and is reminiscent of my old OM4 in some aspects of its handling.

DP Review has posted a review of the Olympus E-420.

Despite its small dimensions the camera is surprisingly well specified; even more so when considering its price point. You won’t find live view and the E-420′s level of customization on other manufacturers’ entry level offerings (at least not if they’re in the same price bracket). In fact, the E-420′s spec sheet looks more like something we’d expect from a mid-range SLR.

Digicam Review has posted a review of Olympus E-420.

If you want to move into the world of Digital SLRs and don’t know where to start then the Olympus EVOLT E-420 is probably one of the best cameras to choose – despite being Olympus’ “budget” digital SLR – it is not overly limited in any way like some of the other budget Digital SLRs.
