Conclusion: Olympus E-510 digital reflex camera Unlike the E-400, we had to await the successor of the E-500 for awhile. This is not so bad in itself, because the Olympus E-500 is a fine camera. Olympus has managed to combine the advantages of the E-500 with the E-410 in the new Olympus E-510, which has made it a very interesting camera.
Summary: The E-510 may not be 100% perfect but it's the closest Olympus has come yet with any of its digital cameras. If you're prepared to opt into the Four Thirds system favoured by Olympus - and now Panasonic - rather than going with the tried and tested Nikons and Canons of this world - and favour a camera that's more portable than either - then the E-510 is worth your serious consideration.
Pros: Four Thirds system allows for physically smaller lenses that offer twice the focal range of their 35mm equivalents, making for a lighter camera all round, built-in stabilisation allows for steadier shots in low light avoiding image blur, plus a better, more rounded grip than the E-410 makes holding and using the DSLR easier
Cons: Physically bulkier than its E-410 baby brother, meaning that it cannot similarly lay claim to 'smallest DSLR in the world', auto white balance is sometimes inaccurate
Conclusion: I have no problems recommending the Olympus Evolt E-510 two lens kit for D-SLR newbies or those who don’t have an extensive collection of older lenses. However if you have a collection of glass, go with similar 10MP Canons or Nikons. And, as noted, any fans of Olympus’ Live View let me know what I’m missing.
Summary: If features like live view, image stabilisation and dust reduction appeal to you, then the Olympus E-510 might be just what you're looking for. While its pictures are a little on the soft side compared to competing models, they are perfectly adequate for most uses and the feature set is certainly enticing.
Pros: Sensor-based stabilisation, live view, dust reduction, nice build
Cons: Slightly soft images, only three auto focus points
Excerpt: While many digital SLRs priced around £500 have severely limited features, Olympus’s E-510 bucks the trend. This 10.2-megapixel camera is designed for photo enthusiasts who have a basic command of photographic technique and want a camera that can handle almost any situation.
Pros: Wide range of features. Solidly built. Live View mode.
Excerpt: After its success with the introduction of the tiny E-410 and its handy Live View features, Olympus has expanded its range further with yet another minuscule digital SLR camera aimed at novices and enthusiasts alike. Carrying the same 10-megapixel sensor as the E-410, the new E-510 is the first digital SLR from Olympus to include a built-in anti-shake system to offset the wobbles.
Summary: The Olympus E-510 is a very capable camera. I enjoyed using it and it gave good results despite the weather. The build quality is good and it handles well. The Image stabiliser is effective and the dust reduction seems to work well as the images produced are clean with the Zuiko lenses ensuring sharpness. The Turbo III processor has ensured that noise remains at a minimium as much as possible and the noise test was a great surprise.
Pros: Excellent control of noise, No aberration when overexposed, Image stabiliser works a treat
Cons: Live view not as useful as claimed, Seems unable to focus on hair, Navigating the menu is annoying
Conclusion: Genel olarak bakıldığında, Olympus E-510 dijital SLR fotoğraf makinesi göze hoş görünen sağlam gövdesi, yüksek görüntü kalitesi ve kolay kullanım özellikleri ile çok iyi bir model. Bunlara ek olarak cihazın hafif olmasını, Live View canlı izleme sağlamasını ve FourThirds Sistem bir model olması sayesinde geniş sayıda objektiflerle uyumlu olmasını da ekleyebiliriz. Bu objektiflerden bir tanesi de incelememizde kullandığımız ultra geniş açı zum objektif.
