Olympus E-410 EVOLT Review

 

The Olympus E-400 was announced on the 14th September 2006, just before the Photokina show in Cologne, Germany. At the time there was much excitement about this compact and lightweight camera however this turned to disappointment for many of our...

Compact and lightweight digital SLR which is comfortable despite the lack of grip Good image quality and resolution if not optimum straight out of the box Low noise across the ISO range by default, turning down noise filter doesn't spoil images Through...

Dynamic Range less than competition (highlights by about three quarters of a stop; 0.7 EV) Small viewfinder (difficult to see fine detail, difficult to check focus) Live View usefulness countered by LCD which doesn't tilt, not bright enough outdoors...

We first got our hands on the E-400 back in August last year, and were very excited that Olympus had delivered a small, lightweight digital SLR with echoes of the great compact film SLRs of the past (the Olympus OM-10 comes to mind). This was after all...

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.

Olympus E410 review

 

Last year during the European press conference in Hamburg, Olympus gave the starting shot for a new FourThirds SLR concept and the first real digital compact SLR - the Olympus E-400 - was born. Unfortunately it was only the European continent that was...

The moment it globally sunk in that the first real digital compact SLR camera - the Olympus E-400 - would not be available worldwide, everybody was disappointed. But with the worldwide introduction of the Olympus E-410 Olympus certainly made up for it....

Olympus E-410 Review

 

The Olympus E-410 is one of the world's most compact DSLR cameras with Live Preview, allowing you to frame your shot using either the optical viewfinder or the 2.5 inch LCD screen. Based on the Four Thirds Standard, the Olympus E-410 replaces the E-400...

The Olympus E-410's portability is perhaps its biggest boon, and certainly one of its greatest sales assets - although in truth there is not a great deal of difference in terms of dimensions with the likes of Nikon's 10MP D40x. It's also, for me, less...

Olympus EVOLT E-410 Digital Camera - Full Review

 

Small and appealing, the Olympus E-410 brings memories of days gone by, when SLRs were small, mechanical, and manual. But the E-410 is capable of both full auto and manual, and its 10 megapixel Live MOS sensor and optical design are quite advanced. The...

Small and light, easy to bring along ; Excellent lens beats others in its class ; Lens is sharp corner to corner ; Wide range of optics to choose from ; Live LCD preview allows shots from odd angles ; Good resolution ; Good control of chromatic...

Slow startup and shut-down times, Grip is fine for the camera only, but is insufficient for added accessories, Live View mode is very slow, introducing extreme shutter lag, Optical viewfinder is small and information is displayed off to the right,...

First Look: Olympus E-410 and E-510

 

Previously, Olympus was one of the few major players in the DSLR game to not have a 10 megapixel model in the US market. That all changed with today's announcement of the 10-megapixel E-410 and E-510

Olympus EVOLT E-410

 

This is our final review of the Olympus EVOLT E-410. The camera described is a full production model, and product photos have been re-shot if necessary. All sample photos are from the production-level cameras. Thank you very much for your patience

Excellent photo quality if you tweak the settings ; Minimal noise until ISO 1600 (unless you turn off the noise filter) ; Very compact body (by D-SLR standards); well built for the price ; Live view on LCD allows you to see 100% of the frame, preview...

Soft photos at default settings (adjust the noise filter to fix that); colors a bit muted as well ; Camera tends to underexpose, sometimes by a lot ; Lack of right hand makes camera difficult to hold (in my opinion) ; Live view feature not as robust as...

In some ways, the Olympus EVOLT E-410 reminds me of the Pentax K10D. Both cameras are capable of taking great photos, but you'll need to adjust some settings first. It would've been nice had Olympus not applied so much noise reduction at the default...

Olympus E-410 Review

 

Although not without flaws, the Olympus E-510 and Olympus E-410 bring Olympus' DSLR cameras in line with the competition. While previous Olympus DSLR cameras featured noticeably more noise than other brands, the E-410 shows less image noise than its...

Generally low image noise until ISO 400, Noise reduction under user control selects between increased noise and detail retention, Good white-balance system, Speedy and responsive, Great build quality, Effective dust reduction system

Colors oversaturated by default, High-ISO noise reduction introduces above average image softness, Below average dynamic range, Tendency to under-expose, Only 3 auto focus points, Live-view requires mirror action for exposure and focusing
