  • 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.

Olympus E-510

  • 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

Olympus Evolt E-510 Review

Digitaltrends
27 August 2007
  • Excerpt: It’s no secret Nikon and Canon dominate the market for D-SLRs leaving Sony, Pentax and Olympus to pick up the crumbs. That said, D-SLRs from these companies are far from crummy—in fact they can be pretty good as we reported over a year ago with the Sony alpha . Many people opt for Canon and Nikon because they have older 35mm lenses from those systems and want to use that glass in the digital era.
  • Pros: Solid 10MP D-SLR; quick response; Live View
  • Cons: Live View; menu system needs updating

  • 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.
  • Cons: Images can be noisy.

  • 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

Olympus E510 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: De Olympus E-510 is al met al een erg fijne en goede D-SLR camera. Mooi en stevig gebouwd, een prima beeldkwaliteit en fijn in de bediening. Daar komt ook nog eens bij dat de camera vrij compact is, Live View aan boord heeft en onderdeel is van het FourThirds Systeem, zodat je kunt beschikken over een ruim arsenaal aan objectieven. Waaronder de ultra groothoek zoom die we bij deze test kregen.

  • 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.
