Features
In-Body Image Stabilization is a state-of-the-art technology, preventing camera shake for blur free photography. Built into the camera body using the SWD motors, this image stabilization works with all Four Thirds and Zuiko Digital lenses from the 8mm fisheye (16mm equivalent in 35mm photography) to the 300mm super telephoto (600mm equivalent) for handheld shots. Shoot in low light and slower shutter speeds without worry.
Features
On-screen Autofocus with Live View works as seamlessly as a point-and-shoot to display subjects, in focus, on the LCD the instant the shutter is pressed half way.
Features
Shadow Adjustment Technology captures detail in the bright areas of a frame and opens up detail in the shadows that other cameras would render too dark or underexposed.
Features
The benefits of the Four Thirds Mount on Olympus E-System cameras are many. You get a digitally designed image sensor, a compact design, as well as expandability and compatibility with the rest of the Four Thirds System.
Features
Certified as an Olympus Eco-product, this camera has a reduced environmental footprint across its entire product lifecycle, which encompasses not only the product and its packaging, but also the manufacturing and logistical processes in bringing the product to the marketplace.
Features
Face Detection Technology targets and locks on up to eight faces to ensure accurate focus for crystal clear, amazing portraits. The LCD shows the faces detected for ease of use.
Features
The powerful 10-megapixel Live-MOS sensor means you'll see more detail in your pictures than ever before. And you'll have the flexibility to crop and still produce large, detailed prints.
Features
The Olympus dust reduction system is an industry first and a proven technology. Every time you turn on the E-520, the Supersonic Wave Filter™ — located between the shutter and the image sensor – silently vibrates an amazing 30,000 times per second. Dust is flung away and collected so it can't come back.
Features
The E-520's 2.7" HyperCrystal™ II LCD delivers twice the contrast and better viewing in extreme lighting conditions, a broader range of color detail, and a wider angle of view on the LCD.
Features
With 20 easy-to-use Scene-Select Modes you can simply select the right mode for your shot; the E-520 takes care of the rest. The 20 modes cover practically every common shooting scenario including Portrait, Fireworks, Sports, Landscape, Sunset and many more, even underwater.
Features
Perfect Shot Preview enables you to view and select your favorite effect right on the LCD, and see how the image will look, even before you capture it.
Features
The E-520's TruePic III™ processor gives you better color and quality through true-to-life skin tones, brilliant blue skies, precise color transitions, more detail and less image noise.
Features
Expand your creative reach with wireless flash compatibility. The E-520 is compatible with the Olympus FL-50R and FL-36R wireless electronic flashes that are designed exclusively for digital photography.
Features
Accepting CompactFlash Type I & II, Microdrives, and xD-Picture Cards, the E-520 provides a choice of data storage options for enhanced flexibility, and it is possible to transfer image files from one card to the other right inside the camera.
Features
Fire off a burst of shots at 3.5 frames per second. The E-520's burst rate is perfect for capturing the ideal shot at a backyard birthday party or at a youth soccer game.
Features
The E-520's Auto White Balance function analyzes information from the scene and calibrates how a white object should appear under a variety of light sources, so your images turn out vibrant and life like.
Features
Olympus Zuiko Digital™ lenses provide edge-to-edge pixel-perfect clarity. Unlike film lenses, these advanced, precision-engineered 100-percent digital lenses are designed to work perfectly with all the camera's digital technology.
Features
Underwater Housing PT-E05 allows you to take the E-520 to depths of 130 feet. The required, optional lens ports allow the use of lenses from the 8mm fisheye through the 50mm macro -- as well as flashes -- for spectacular underwater photography.
