Summary: This was purchased used but not for the intended purpose. I will be using this for astrophotography. Because of the 2x crop factor it makes for highly magnified views of my astronomy targets; mostly small star clusters and double stars. My 2500mm telescope now becomes a 5000mm lens because of the crop factor. I've used Olympus cameras in the past starting with the OM-1n and progressing into the digital with the E-500 and now the E-510.

Summary: NOT IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AS STATED. RECIEVED CAMERA MISSING THE BATTERY COVER ON THE CAMERA SO I RECIEVED AN ERROR MESAGE AND DIDNT WORK UNTIL I DUCT TAPED BOTTOM OF IT. WORKS FINE NOW OTHERWISE. VERY PROMPT DELIVERY.
Summary: Of course this camera is now an old model replaced by the 450. The great thing about the Olympus DSLR's over other brands is that they are very compact and with Olympus's fine range of lenses available(and other brands including Leica and Sigma lenses that fit the 4/3rds standard) it is capable of very good results overall.

Summary: This is an affordable choice for an DSLR camera with a certain quality. Especially for whom are interested in underwater photography like myself this is a pretty good option if you consider the housing price as well.
Good Camera, Bad LCD screen to review your pictures

Summary: I am in the prosumer category for cameras and very much interested in photography. I've researched extensively on the DSLR cameras before buying this camera and am very happy with my purchase. When I was researching for my first DSLR, my main concerns were size, price and live view options (among some others). And this camera excels for all these. It is the smallest and the lightest DSLR camera on the market today.
Summary: i always buy my gadgets on amazon and it never fails to meet my expectation. I bought this camera few weeks ago and i am so glad i did it. I'm not whiz on cameras but this particular brand is really a great deal, u got 2 lenses for a good price, what more to ask?. I am still figuring out the ins and outs of it,but i'd tell you that this camera is smart. Easy to use, worth the bucks. Good as a gift or for personal use.
Summary: I've only had this camera about a month, but so far, I am really happy with it. It's small, lightweight, and easy to use. It takes great pictures in both bright and low light. The only reason I give this 4 starts out of 5 is that the operation can be a little slow, especially when making long exposures - there seems to be quite a delay in the time between when the shutter closes to when it displays your image, but other than that, this camera is perfect.
Summary: although i haven't had the camera very long, it seems to be user friendly. i have basically been using the preset modes.the night scene has worked very well. i have tried all the preset modes and i am very happy with them.we purchased the kit with the 2 lens,for distance i will need to purchase another lens the ones that came with it doesn't give me the distance that my 35mm did.hope to write another reviw after i have used the camera for awhile longer.
Summary: If you're top priority is a small, interchangeable lens digital SLR, then the E-410 should be the place to start. There are none smaller, and the telephoto 40-150 is exceptionally short. It's light weight, and has all the basic features most people want or need in a SLR. It's basic enough for beginners, and featured enough (and good enough image quality) to satisy most advanced amatuers.
