Olympus E-420 - a compact digital SLR camera

Posted on Wednesday, March 05 2008 @ 16:18:00 CET by


Olympus unveiled one of the most compact digital SLR cameras, the E-420. This camera features a 10 megapixel sensor, 2.7" LCD display with Live View, 3.5fps continuous shooting, 28 shooting modes, ... Compact size may be a nice selling point but it's probably best to try this camera in a shop as larger models may be more comfortable to use.
With the E-420, Olympus proves that high performance D-SLR photography can be enjoyed by everyone. Despite packing even more potential than its predecessor, this new E-System model boasts extreme user-friendliness in an amazingly light and compact take-anywhere form. Whatever the photographer’s level of experience, high-quality images are achievable by anyone. 28 shooting modes, including automatic, semi-automatic and manual shooting options, ensure complete versatility – while retaining both ease of use and the distinct D-SLR quality advantages.

A powerful 10.0 Megapixel Live MOS sensor provides plentiful resolution for crisp, detailed shots. This is supported by the incorporation of the TruePic III image processor which enables the implementation of Shadow Adjustment Technology (SAT). It guarantees exceptionally true-to-life image reproduction while reducing noise and enhancing processing speed. Sequential shooting at up to 3.5fps in full Megapixel mode is also possible with up to eight images in RAW buffer.

For state-of-the-art protection against the threat of dust, Olympus’ own Supersonic Wave Filter is the E-System’s native dust reduction system – and has positioned itself as the world’s leading solution against dust on the image sensor.


The Olympus E-420 will be available by the end of next month for $499. For the bundle with the 14-42mm kit lens you'll have to pay $100 more.
