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.

Olympus's Camedia E-10: 4 Megapixels at Last

 

Olympus Camedia E-10 digital camera

More bells and whistles than a church full of referees.

A long list of advanced features helps justify its high price.

Olympus E-10 Review

 

The E-10 is Olympus's foray into the professional digital SLR market, it's also priced to tap into the lucrative prosumer market where owners demand the best quality and features. Looking a little like Sony's DSC-D700 the E-10 has a fixed 4x optical...

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,...

Olympus E-400 Lightest 10 MP Camera on the Market

 

Olympus has always been known for the quality of the cameras they create and their newest project, the E-400, which will go on sale in November, has been named the World(tm)s lightest Digital SLR at just 380 grams or less than half a pound.

Olympus Camedia E-10: Almost-Pro SLR, for a Price

 

Olympus' top-of-the-line digital SLR manages excellent image quality and shows off some enviable features, but it somewhat awkwardly straddles the prosumer/professional line.

I've been using the E-10 for more than half a year now and I'm very satisfied with it. I use it alongside a Mamiya 645 Pro TL and that makes a beautiful analog/digital mix. I don't understand the complaints about posterisation someone saw in the...

Olympus E-10 Digital Camera Review

 

One camera that has received a lot of attention is the Olympus E-10. It is the flagship of Olympus' filmless digital camera line and rightly so - it is the world's first 4 megapixel digital camera in the sub $2000 market. It is the sister model to the...
