Excerpt: I bought a used E400 , less than 7000 actuations, for peanuts on eBay Germany .. I wanted to see that famous Kodak look . Well the jpeg colours are beautiful AND accurate , if only a bit on the warmer side .
Excerpt: A 4 all-round. The images look toasted somehow (not a bad thing...can be appealing). I prefer the E-1, much superior body...but the E-400 is smaller and has more MP so if those two things are important (and the newer sensors, IS and Live-Views are not interesting) then the E-400 is a good bet.
Excerpt: E-400 has a serious defect on Noise reduction function. Problems: Comparing with the other DSLR model of the Olympus, E-400 has a serious defect on a NR function. See the bellow, this is the function chart for the NR mode.

Excerpt: I picked up a twin lens kit secondhand for an irresistible price and have been very impressed with the compact size, sturdy build quality and the images. I carry it around everywhere now, with the 14-42 kit lens.
Excerpt: I have an EOS 1DS Mark II, and it is heavy to carry around all the time. Tried a compact, didn't like it. After much research I plumped for the E400 and two kit lenses. The equipment is beautifully light and very well made.
Excerpt: This is the sort of digital camera I had been waiting for: serious hardware but compact and lightweight enough to carry on a hike or a prolonged holiday. Build quality is beyond reproach and picture quality is very good even with the kit lenses (but beware if you are moving up from a compact...
