Olympus E-500 DSLR digital camera

Pocket Lint
14 March 2006
  • Conclusion: The E-500 is so packed with kit there's not room to go over it all here, suffice to say this is as comprehensively specified DSLR as you're likely to want (or need). At £600 for the standard kit that includes the 14-45mm lens used in the test, it's great value and with independent lens makers such...
  • Pros: Lightweight and easy to use, excellent image quality, comprehensive control options
  • Cons: Styling is a bit on the blocky side

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.

  • Excerpt: Sorella della E-300 e della più recente E-330, la E-500 arriva sul mercato come la risposta della Olympus alla proliferazione delle fotocamere SLR digitali di gamma media e bassa. Una risposta che non poté -non seppe?- dare a suo tempo la E-300.
  • Pros: efficace sistema di pulizia del sensore, ottima qualità di immagine, buona ergonomia, display di notevole qualità….
  • Cons: mirino molto piccolo, cattivo rendimento del bilanciamento del bianco con luce artificiale, autofocus soltanto di 3 punti, menu un po' complessi…
