Olympus Camedia E-10


The new Olympus Camedia E-10 digital camera ($2,000 street) is one of those rare products that feels perfect the first time you pick it up. Even rarer is the fact that after several weeks of use, we couldn't find one major facet of the E-10 that we'd...

Olympus Camedia E-10


Big, rugged, and very cool, Olympus's 4-megapixel supercamera is for those who take their photography seriously.

Consider the E-10 for professional photography, but only if you don't need removable lenses. It will be more attractive to hard-core amateur photographers who have cash to burn and a desire to tweak camera settings often.

Excellent image quality, good resolution and detail, neutral colours High quality 4x zoom lens, very fast and bright F2.0 - F2.4 Smooth lens controls, mechanical zoom ring is VERY welcome Superb build quality, excellent "all metal" case, tactile feel...

Stuck pixels (seems to be affecting quite a few E-10's) Slow startup times Slow image flush times Slow image display and image magnification Some chromatic aberrations (although not enough to worry) Histogram display not automatic and not available in...

The Camedia E-10 has the features that professionals expect from an SLR, including Program Auto, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual exposure modes, a manual zoom and focusing ring on the lens barrel and a real focusing screen. The E-10 uses...

Extremely easy to use, the Camedia E-10 offers one-touch buttons and dials as alternative means to change program modes. Rather than navigate through layers of LCD menu commands, the Camedia E-10 sports dedicated buttons to control shooting modes,...
