Olympus E-410 review

 

Olympus is still hawking its Four Thirds imaging system, but if any camera can bring it to the mass market the E-410 can

Olympus’ Four Thirds imaging system comes of age in a classy compact SLR that makes the rest look ordinary

Olympus E-410 review

 

Olympus brings a touch of OM to its DSLRs

Superbly easy to use ; Great handling ; Compact body

Not the largest sensor ; Live View slows things down

Brings the image quality of the Four Thirds system right up on a par with other DSLR sensors

Olympus E-410 digital SLR review

 

The compact and sturdily constructed Olympus E-410 (an updated version of the year-old E-400) is the baby of the Olympus digital SLR family, a 10Mp entry-level model that like its predecessor is the world's smallest and lightest DSLR on launch.

For those not already wedded to a Nikon or Canon dSLR system, the Olympus E-410 appears the very definition of a bargain and an ideal entry point for the first-time dSLR owner.

Olympus Evolt E-410 review

 

I have few complaints about the E-410's design. With its slim profile, almost gripless body, and modest 1 pound, 4.2-ounce heft (with the 28mm-to-84mm-equivalent lens), the E-410 feels solid and not at all like a budget model. Both kit lenses are...

Very compact for a dSLR; speedy; Live View mode (LCD preview) operation.

Subpar autofocus, exposure, and automatic white-balance performance; some poor choices for default settings.

Olympus' compact dSLR for newbies, the Evolt E-410, is a decent choice if you're looking to save space in your bag, but issues with its automatic exposure and white balance make it an unsatisfactory option as a first dSLR.

Proving it deserves to be at the top of the DSLR market for innovation: Olympus' new E-410

Olympus has really pulled the rabbit from the hat with the E-410 - so look out Canon and Nikon!

Olympus E-410 [Mac]

 

With camera phones increasingly popular and useful as a means of taking a spur-of-the-moment snap, attention has shifted from digital compacts to their more fully-featured cousins for amateur photographers wanting to get the best quality stills. We...

Olympus E-410

 

This is a retro-looking, ultra-compact digital SLR, but one so packed with kit that you'd expect to have to pay twice as much as it costs. The E-400 was overly expensive, whereas here the price is just about right. It may be small in external physical...

Image quality, handling, ease of use, excellent kit lenses, very responsive

Pentamirror viewfinder is small and quite gloomy, bright conditions hamper Live View, barrel distortion on 14-42mm standard zoom
