  • Summary: It does everything I wanted and expected; it is as simple as I want it to be... point and shoot... or it can be complex ie. WB bracketing, completely manual etc.

  • Summary: The camera seemed o.k. couple little issues with condition, but no manual. I am a novice slr user, and am lost as to how to use this thing. Asked seller to send manual, but still haven't heard. Will have to buy one for $10.00. Oh well.

Perfect for a beginner ....

  • Excerpt: My husband bought me this for Christmas last year and I love it. Last year I had absolutely no clue what I was doing, but after sitting and reading through the manual that came with it I slowly learned what each thing did and how to go about taking good pictures. The lenses that come with it are okay, but I'm itching for a 50mm lens for portrait work. It's a strong, sturdy camera. I've had no issues at all with dust on the lens. I love it!

Great starter digital SLR.

  • Excerpt: If you are just getting into digital photography and learning how to use an SLR, the E-500 camera is a great investment. You have your choice of information that can be shown on the LCD screen (full info, just the basic info, or info off) so that you aren't inundated with information you may not need. The lenses use the four-thirds mount, so there are a lot of lens options out there from third parties. You can use either compact flash or sd memory cards with the camera.

Love it!

  • Excerpt: This is a great entry-level digital camera that produces high-quality images. The camera comes with a wide array of features that establish it as a legitimate challenge to Nikon's and Canon's high-quality digital camera, which everyone seems to have these days. Although, some usability issues with this camera prevent me from wholeheartedly recommending this camera over some of Canon's and Nikon's digital cameras.

  • Excerpt: Taking pictures of different things is one of my favorite things to do. It is very nice because I am able to relax while I capture moments that I will treasure for the rest of my life. I bought this camera because I knew it was a high quality brand that would take very good pictures. I was not disappointed and the camera takes very nice pictures. The other nice part about this camera is that the batteries last a long time.

The Olympus E-500 is an excellant beginner and intermediate SLR

  • Excerpt: The Olympus E-500 digital SLR camera is an excellant camera for the beginner and the novice.  Although it is classified as an entry level camera it has a lot of features the higher priced cameras have. The E-500 has dual media slots for storage of your digital pictures, the camera uses the Olympus XD card, and the compact flash card.  The compact flash card will store shots a lot faster than the XD. Olympus has been at the front of a lot of digital camera inovations.

My Olympus DSLR is the perfect camera for my needs.

  • Excerpt: I purchased my Olympus E500 about 2 years ago. I looked at several other SLRs, but the price, features and reputation of Olympus  swayed my final decision on the purchase. Since purchasing that one, I have also bought one for my husband. We are both very pleased with the quality of the photos they take. I shoot competitively and against people that own much more expensive cameras, but I always fare as well as them in competitions. The pictures are clear and sharp.

Very capable E-500

Paul Porter, Amazon

  • Summary: The E-500 has been a great camera for me overall. It is easy to use and controls are well placed. It is of comfortable size and fairly light in weight even with a zoom lens on. While the camera is light in weight the materials used do not feel cheap and it fits well in your hand(I have big hands) while in use. Auto focus works well in the conditions I have used it. Images are well exposed and color reproduction has been very realistic.
