Olympus E-500

8 November 2006
  • Summary: The E-500 is packed with kit too much to go over in detail here. Suffice to say, this is as comprehensively specified D-SLR as you’re likely to want (or need) and at £600 (for the standard kit that includes the 14-45mm lens used in the test) it’s great value.
  • Pros: Lightweight and easy to use, excellent image quality, comprehensive control options.
  • Cons: Styling is a bit on the chunky side.

  • Conclusion: Olympus E-500 digital SLR camera When the Olympus E-300 first appeared in the market, many raised an eyebrow. Was this the camera that would truly make a mark for the FourThirds system? It wasn't.

1 February 2006
  • Summary: On the downside though, the anti-dust process imposes a serious delay every time the camera powers up, the motorised manual focusing (and lack of anti-shake options) could seriously infuriate some photographers, the lack of detail when zooming during playback is disappointing, while the view through...

  • Summary: A more classic design from Olympus that veers away from the E-300’s eccentric body shape. Same 8mp sensor but with a new noise filter makes this a far more attractive buy. Good colour rendition and a special anti-dust mechanism for clean images makes this well worth a closer look.

Olympus E500 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Samenvattend kan ik niet anders concluderen dan dat Olympus met de E-500 een zeer sterk product heeft neergezet. Voor zijn prijs krijg je bijzonder veel: talrijke speciale functies, een uitstekende beeldkwaliteit en een ergonomisch zeer doordacht ontwerp.

Test: Olympus E-500 (Digital-SLR)

CHIP Online
19 February 2007
  • Conclusion: Die Olympus E-500 ist eine preiswerte Digital-SLR mit eng beieinander liegenden Stärken und Schwächen: hoher Auflösung und guter Farbwiedergabe steht ein zu hohes Rauschen gegenüber, sinnvolle Ausstattungsdetails kontrastieren mit teilweise hakeliger Bedienung.
  • Pros: Hohe Auflösung, Staubschutz-Funktion, 15 Motivprogramme
  • Cons: Erhöhtes Rauschen

  • Excerpt: Le E-300 ne pouvant plus rivaliser avec les reflex numériques de Canon et Nikon, Olympus a donc remplacé son modèle par le E-500. Le boitier au design novateur du E-300 est aux oubliettes, le public ne l'avait pas vraiment apprécié, du coup Olympus est revenu sur un look beaucoup plus classique et...
  • Pros: Format de capteur 4/3, Système anti-poussière
  • Cons: quelques lenteurs

Olympus E500 Review

Let's go digital
29 January 2007
  • Conclusion: Cámara SLR digital Olympus E-500 Cuando la Olympus E-300 apareció en el mercado por primera vez, muchos se preguntaron si era la cámara que realmente sería referencia del sistema FourThirds. No fue el caso. Con su modelo digital réflex E-500, Olympus adopta un enfoque mucho más realista.
