Excerpt: I really love to take photos and I always want these to seem real. I came across with Olympus E510 Digital SLR camera. I am really satisfied with this product. I bought it for $845.50 AUS. It has truly great features and I really benefit so much from it.
Summary: I had used this camera for 5 years and it was my first DSLR, I am glad i didn't choose Canon or Nikon for the simple fact that this one is the lightest of them all to carry with the lens attached. I used it to photograph several weddings, parties, church Christmas shows, graduation. I used it with Zuiko 14-54mm lens, and it was a perfect match, AF is fast, battery life is good, sharpness is good.
Summary: I wanted a DSLR but didn't want to spend the bucks for a new one, so I settled for a used camera. This camera may be dated by DSLR standards, but I find that it is very much capable of almost anything I can subject it to, although I am no professional by a long shot. As a casual shooter, it works very well for me and the four thirds lenses can be had for cheaper than some Nikon and Canon lenses, but there aren't as many choices.
Summary: This camera is a wonderful canvas to get those once in a life time portraits in your photo album. I had bought this camera, read the instructions, took some pictures, re-read the instructions, honed the mechanics in a little and I was off on vacation to my nieces wedding and to take pictures of the scenery in Ohio. The pictures are stellar. I have to say my skill level in photography is a little above average after 40 years, (I should be a little better by now).
Summary: This was my second Olympus DSLR. I kept it in a case and seldom used it when the weather was really bad. After about a year, I pulled it out of the case on a trip and it was not working. It went from working great to not working? The screen had some weird have view on it, so I sent it in and it cost me about half of what I paid for it and their reason for why it malfunctioned was that they told me I was not caring for it properly.
Summary: It was a used camera, so the price was right to give it as a gift. I know nothing about cameras, so I can't speak to its abilities. The delivery was on time. It was well packed and exactly as described. My brother was DELIGHTED and emails me beautiful pictures constantly. He has purchased additional lens and couldn't be happier. Start to finish, I am so glad I purchased the Olympus Evolt. My brother is very into photography.
Summary: I have the exact same camera. As an avid amateur photogapher I take a very large number of photos and wanted a back-up camera body that used the same lenses,same batteries, same media card and same flash. My Olympus is a good camera, however, as a company Olympus is very, very poor when it comes to support/repairs for older model cameras--actually they won't.
