  • Summary: For those seeking an entry-level DSLR camera, my Olympus E-620 review shows that this camera is a good starting point. You can probably find the E-620 camera body (and perhaps a starter lens) for less than $750, making it a good value, and it performs well in a variety of shooting conditions.
  • Pros: Rotatable LCD is bright, even in direct sunlight, Can use live view or viewfinder, Auto-focus works well across the board, It has a sturdy feel and is very light weight, Image stabilization works well
  • Cons: It takes some time to learn all of the features, LCD dims too quickly when conserving battery power, Low-light photo image quality could be better, No video mode

  • Summary: The best Four Thirds camera yet closes the gap and competes convincingly with its APS-C competitors. More importantly though, it's small, produces excellent 'out of the box' image quality and is jam-packed with useful--and a few novel--features. If you can live without movies, it's an easy pick.
  • Pros: Superb image quality, Good tonal response and dynamic range (at ISO 200 and above), Good high ISO performance, Built-in Image Stabilization, Generally fast and responsive in use, Twist and swivel screen useful for certain shooting types, JPEG engine makes the most of the sensor's output, Useful i...
  • Cons: Contrast detect AF pretty slow in live view (which is often the case on DSLRs), Moderate LCD screen resolution (and too reflective in bright light), Slightly lower absolute resolution than rest of class, Complicated menu system not that easy to navigate (though it offers a great degree of user cu...

Olympus Evolt E-620

  • Summary: Interestingly Olympus has nearly the same feature-set in 3 sizes, the E-620, the much larger E-3 and the compact non-DLSR Micro-Four-Thirds E-P1. If size matters, then you've got choice here. The E-3 features a viewfinder with 100% coverage and the E-P1 has no viewfinder at all.
  • Pros: Quite low image noise for Four-Thirds system, Good dynamic range, Excellent metering, very resistant to blow-out, Reliable auto focus, Fast and responsive, Effective stabilization, Good dust reduction, Highly customizable, Backlit buttons
  • Cons: Poor auto-white-balance in artificial light, Very small viewfinder, Questionable placement of controls, Complicated menu system, LCD too reflective, Short battery life

  • Conclusion: Olympus E-620 digital SLR cameras The assortment of FourThirds digital SLR cameras has been expanded extensively over the last few years, and not without success. Even less than 6 years ago, we got acquainted with the new system (Olympus E-1 introduction).

  • Summary: The Olympus E-620 provides the ultimate portable, creative DSLR – with this as a concept, Olympus has unquestionably succeeded. And, should the novelty of the E620’s Art Filters wear off, or should you not be drawn to them in the first place, the Olympus E620 is still a fantastic camera underneath.
  • Pros: Art Filters, useful features, live view, LCD screen, wireless flash capabilities
  • Cons: Noise levels, awkward handling, small and fiddly buttons, small buffer, a little expensive

  • Summary: While shooting for this test, I found myself trudging through a field, humming a merry tune, and absent-mindedly tossing the E-620 from one hand to another. Being a responsible camera reviewer, I stopped as soon as I realised what I was doing and put the strap around my neck, but it made me wonder...

  • Excerpt: Creatives who want to make the move from a compact camera to a digital SLR but are worried about the learning curve and the bulkier size of SLRs should check out the 12.3-megapixel Olympus E-620.
  • Pros: Fun to use; excellent low-light performance; excellent Live View mode; compact size; intuitive menu system.
  • Cons: Slow high-quality burst mode; will overheat if Live View is used for hours on end.
