Summary: I AM TOTALLY AMAZED WITH THIS CAMERA. UPON RECEIVING THIS CAMERA I CHARGED THE BATTERY, INSTALLED A MEMORY CARD AND TOOK IT TO MY DAUGHTER'S BABY SHOWER. THE PARTY ROOM WAS DIM-TO-DARK. DINNER WAS SERVED AND SMALL CHILDREN WERE CRAWLING AND RUNNING EVERYWHERE. I HAD NO CONFIDENCE IN MY ABILITY TO TAKE A DECENT PICTURE SO; I SET THE CAMERA TO AUTO AND STARTED TAKING PICTURES.
Olympus EVOLT Evolt E-410 Kit with Zuiko Digital 14-42m
19 November 2010
Summary: The smallest 35mm SLR in the world that I know of. Bought for a friend for Christmas. Tested out camera with the 14-42mm lens and was rewarded with some quite sharp images. Very good color. Macro works great. Didn't use the telephoto zoom yet. The Four Thirds format is not recommended by Olympus for very large blow ups but 81/2 x 11 images should be very sharp. Viewed ACTUAL PIXELS of images in PhotoShop and looked very sharp.
Summary: I decided on an Olympus becuase my mom has one and I loved hers. This camera is easy to use and the features are really nice. I have taken hundred of pictures and the battery has not even needed to be charged. I am very happy with my choice and If I had to do it all over again, I would still choose the Olympus e-410. You cant go wrong with this camera.
Summary: PROS: Nice clean design, very small and lightweight, lens are exceptional for both far and close up shots, easy for beginners, flash is great,the manual and auto focus work good Quality of picture is perfect worth the buy for beginners and intermediate CONS: auto focus takes about a 3 seconds indoors to focus and shoot, take getting use to to find all the manual features
Summary: This camera cost around 400$ and is worth an 800$ camera easily. It can compete with the most of the best Nikon and Cannon SLR (without including the cazy cameras over 2000$) The quality is perfect, menu very optimized and complex, a Live view which is a really special feature for an SLR. Lithium battery which is a huge + for people that hate buying new batteries. Everything is just perfect, I love this camera and I am proud of it.
