The Olympus E-520's Image Stabilization technology is built into the camera body to produce clear, sharp and blur-free images. This camera weighs just 7.5 ounces and measures 5.35×3.6-x2.68-inches. Its Autofocus Live View brings subject into sharp focus. Olympus E-520 offers users faster continuous shooting speeds (3.5 vs 3.0 fps).

The Shadow Adjustment Technology of the Olympus E-520 is programmed to work automatically when using Face Detection Mode, Live View and in Scene-Select Modes. The Olympus dust reduction system uses a Supersonic Wave Filter which silently vibrates 30,000 times per second, thereby preventing Dust. Its HyperCrystal™ II Technology provides the users with a wider angle of view on the LCD enabling them to see it up to 176 degrees off-center.

The 10-mega pixel Live-MOS image sensor's high dynamic range, helps to capture images with great details even at high ISO settings. The Face Detection Technology helps to track and focus on up-to eight faces. The Underwater Housing PT-E05 allows users to take the E-520 to depths of 130 feet. Olympus Zuiko Digital lenses provide edge-to-edge pixel-perfect images.

Olympus E-520 comes with 20 SCENE-SELECT MODES which every almost every imaginable shooting scenario possible. The E-520’s TruePic III Image Processor allows user to shoot crystal-clear photos and this processor also lowers image noise. The E-520 is compatible with the Olympus FL-50R and FL-36R wireless electronic flashes and when used in combination with the E-520, wireless multi-flash photography is possible.

  • Shutter

    While on vacation, my camera was working great, then it started acting like the battery needed charged, so i did, then the next day it wouldnt take a pic at all. Everything seemed to work, except the shutter was making noice, and not opening, for i couldnt see the subject in the viewfinder. I thought i may have accidently hit a setting button that was causing the problem, but now i believe it is a shutter problem. Any suggestions before i send it off to get fixed. I have pulled out the cards and battery, let set for 20 min. Everything still is the same.
