Decent Camera

  • 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.

Very capable E-500

Paul Porter, Amazon
26 June 2009
  • 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.

Olympus E-500

Biggun, Rate it all!
7 November 2008
  • Summary: This is a rugged camera that takes good pictures.  I have since went to Nikon, but still have my E-500 for back-up.  It's a reliable camera, well worth the price.  I, too, purchased mine as a kit, with two lens and have added lens to it, as well as an Olympus mounted flash.  A good camera.

An entry level professional camera

George Hooper, Amazon
3 February 2007
  • Summary: Greetings, Welcome to Professional Digital Photography at a reasonable entry level price. The Olympus E-500 combined with the FL-50 flash has all the features that anyone, pro or amateur, would want per a high quality digital SLR. The only feature missing is a Titanium housing, but at this price, you could buy six E-500s before getting into the Titanium market per Digital SLRs.

Great initial value...

A. Brown, Amazon
3 February 2007
  • Summary: I purchased the EVolt E-500 late August and so far it has been an excellent choice. Below is a summary of likes and dislikes: - 2.5" LCD, clear, bright (even in sunlight, just got back from Hawaii so I know) - Relatively fast camera for continuous shots. - Built in modes and scenes provide easy setup for the common situations you might run into (sunsets, candlelight, beach, etc) - Anti dust system works flawlessly - Feels like a SLR Film camera (good when you have big...

step up from P&S

E. K. Arnold "amazon hunter", Amazon

  • Summary: First of all, i don't own this camera--i have the nikon d80--but a friend of mine does and i've been able to compare both side to side. no, the E500 isn't a better camera than the d80 (wishful thinking), but it's one of the best values in the entry-level dslr market. if you're thinking about it, consider the following: --do you want something more advanced than a point and shoot, but less than a professional DSLR?

Excellent Value

GEEBEE, Amazon
3 February 2007
  • Summary: First of all, let's get it clear, this camera is not perfect. But it IS very good, and at the prices Olympus has been selling it for. It is a downright remarkable value. Size/Weight - As I write this, it is the lightest DSLR on the market. A major selling point IMO, after a couple of hours 3 or 4 extra ounces can feel like a ton. Size is about average though. Comfort/Ergonomics - OUTSTANDING The best and most comfortable fit of any DSLR I tried.

Olympus E500 Digital Camera

Maine Rustic, Amazon
14 August 2006
  • Summary: This is my first venture into the world of digital slr cameras and I'm very pleased. The camera feels and handles like a standard slr camera. The two lenses in the package that I purchased are very good, although I do wish that one of the lens was a macro. I think the only dissapointment so far is that there are not many second party lens makers out there for the 4/3 lens system. However, overall the price and the camera package are an extremely good buy.
