  • 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.

DP Review
11 December 2007
  • Conclusion: I've been using the E-510 for an unusually long time - the delay in publishing this review meant I ended up living with it for several months, which allowed me to really get to know it in the same way an owner would. And my overall impression, I have to say, is very positive indeed.
  • Pros: Compact and lightweight design with excellent handling, Surprisingly effective sensor-shift image stabilization, Excellent control system (via info screen) and lots of external controls for important settings, Good image quality and resolution, if not optimum straight out of the box, Low noise ac...
  • Cons: Dynamic Range less than competition (highlights by about three quarters of a stop; 0.7 EV), Serious highlight clipping on bright days unless you reduce exposure, Small viewfinder (difficult to see fine detail, difficult to check focus, difficult to use with glasses), Live View usefulness countere...

Olympus E-510 Review

What Digital Camera
3 September 2007
  • Summary: In-camera image stabilisation and dust-reduction figure prominently on most enthusiasts DSLR shopping lists, but all too often we see one without the other, or we get a weak compromise. With the Olympus E-510 we’re getting both of these things and, more importantly, they both work.
  • Pros: Noise control, Dual mode, image stabilisation, live view LCD mode, Supersonic Wave Filter.
  • Cons: SHQ JPEG burst depth slightly limited, limited dynamic range.

Review: Olympus E510

Wired
9 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Olympus may not make the slimmest or sexiest SLRs on the market, but it does manage to pack a lot of photographic oomph into its beefy shooters. And the new 10-megapixel E-510 is no exception.
  • Pros: Sharp, detailed images. Can use viewfinder or LCD to compose shots. Image stabilization works incredibly well, regardless of lens. Ergonomic case is comfortable to grip. Dual CF and xD slots double on-camera storage. Great wide-angle performance from kit lens.
  • Cons: Two-finger exposure compensation control requires some co-ordination. Default information display is quite crowded.

  • Pros: Built-in Anti-Shake works with any lens., Very effective anti-dust system., Unique Live View facility., Easy access to settings.
  • Cons: Smaller viewfinder than rivals., Can't see stabilisation in optical viewfinder., Some may not like motorised manual focus., Screen doesn't flip-out.
