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: I've had this DSLR for two years now. So far this E510 has survived three different countries - Micronesia, Kuwait and Afghanistan. I like this camera but it is not perfect. I had trouble getting used to the Camera's white-balance - light spots in the photos were always over-exposed until I had a friend show me how to use the camera in program mode. The predialed modes are not very good outside in direct sunlight. The dust reduction system I don't really understand.
3.5/5 This camera is perfect for me, but does have some issues.

Summary: I bought the E-510 because it came with two lenses, was very light-weight and came with a live-view LCD screen, and dust sensor. Well, I got what I wanted! I bought it used and it seemed in perfect condition. I do everything on manual because I love control, and I haven't used any of its automatic settings, so my review is based on the manual performance of the camera. The picture quality is fine, and seems to take sharp pictures if you have it focused just right.
Summary: I almost bought this one. Great price for the features, but then I went to bestbuy and played with one. Disappointing, not like the canons and nikons to hold and feel, and live view wasnt attractive anymore..... The sony dslrs look and feel the best. So goto the storeand try one before you buy.
Conclusion: It is a overall good camera but for some reason, whenever I take a picture the quality level is random. Sometimes it is the clearest shot ever and other times it seems as though it never focused at all. Worst of all the small screen cannot show this low quality so you can only see this after you upload the picture to a computer! BAH!
Summary: I've liked Olympus point and shoot cameras as well their film SLRs so I couldn't wait to get the E-510. It's a delight. The ample control fit my hands well and are in the right places. The menuing system is great. I thought that thanks to my less than great old eyes I'd use the LCD for composing most of the time. I was wrong. The viewfinder is simply wonderful and I use it 95% of the time.
Summary: Esta cámara funciona cuando hay buena luz. Es decir fotos en exterior. Olvidos de hacer fotos en interiores o con poca luz os cansareis de ver disparar el autoenfoque y no poder disparar con la cámara. Lo que e mi me ocurre es que me gusta sacar fotos en interiores, por lo tanto he sufrido muchísimo, la envié al servicio técnico y me vino igual, hasta que al final el vendedor me dijo que esta no era cámara para interiores.
Una cámara baratita para un aficionado a la fotografía
1 February 2010
Excerpt: Cuando compré esta cámara eran una novedad la serie de prestaciones que presentaba: estabilizador de imagen el el cuerpo, viewlight.. Lo cierto es que me pareció muy buena y con muchas prestaciones. Posteriormente me pareció normalita, el estabilizador se nota poco y en poco tiempo han aparecido muchas otras marcas con estas prestaciones, lo que ha hecho que mi mi "supercámara" fuera ocupando con gran rapidez puestos inferiores en el ranquing de calidad comparativa.
Pros: Barata y fácil de manejar
Cons: igualada y superada su tecnología en poco tiempo
Summary: Ahh! ..me olvidava. Por si fuera poco lo del ruido....lo de la subesposición.....etc...etc....ESTO ES LO MÁXIMO : Quise sacar unas fotos en una fiesta familiar, y el autoenfoque fallaba mas que un Ford a pedales ! No pude sacar ni una instantanea ! Ni SIN ...y ni CON el LIVE VIEW !. Mientras tanto la mayoria de los invitados se hinchaba de sacar instantaneas con camaritas de bolsillo ! me retiré de la fiesta AVERGONZADO !
