Olympus Camedia E-10

PC Magazine
8 December 2004
  • Excerpt: The new Olympus Camedia E-10 digital camera ($2,000 street) is one of those rare products that feels perfect the first time you pick it up. Even rarer is the fact that after several weeks of use, we couldn't find one major facet of the E-10 that we'd change–except the price tag. At first glance, the E-10 looks like a traditional 35-mm camera and lens, with the left side of the camera body cut off. The E-10 feels solid in the hand, thanks to a comfortable grip.

  • Cons: Stuck pixels (seems to be affecting quite a few E-10's), Slow startup times, Slow image flush times, Slow image display and image magnification, Some chromatic aberrations (although not enough to worry), Histogram display not automatic and not available in record mode review, Flat images / neutral colours may not be to everyone's tastes, Good continuous mode speed is let down by small 4 image buffer, Barrel distortion at full wide angle, Noise even at ISO 80 (though a...
