“My Olympus E20P”

published 18/06/2004

ProHigh quality pictures

Consslow turn on time and slow processing time

I have now owned my Olympus E20P for almost 3 years and have used it in extremely harsh conditions including several desert expeditions and diving trips. It has not let me down once and produces very high quality images. I rarely use the highest quality setting of "Tiff" as I can see little...

“A Well Proportined Camera”

published 22/04/2002

ProWell proportioned, 5 megapixels

Product Information : Olympus CAMEDIA E-20P

Manufacturer's product description

Forever redefining digital photography, Olympus bolsters its influence in the demanding professional sphere with the five megapixel E-20P digital SLR. This is not just a camera with a fantastic resolution, but one that claims top photo performance across the board. Equipped with a wealth of innovative image optimization functions and photographic features, it opens up new application areas to professional photographers and is set to convince even the most staunch silver halide users. Ideal for studio work, such as portraiture and still life, this model also has the versatility to perform exceptionally on location. Besides achieving an enviable reputation for excellence among advertising and portrait photographers, this will also be a celebrated model in the world of sports and nature photography, thanks to, for example, the super-fast shutter speeds. Besides offering technological finesse, the five million pixel E-20P is equipped to take up any photographic challenge. It features a wide selection of manually adjustable parameters and versatile shooting modes. The E-20P benefits from the renowned Olympus optical quality. It incorporates an outstanding All-In-One optical system that is in exact tune with the camera body - an attribute that is of particular importance in digital models. The camera's exceptionally bright (F2.0/F2.4), 4x zoom lens (corresponds to 35-140 mm on a 35 mm camera) is composed of 14 multi-coated glass elements arranged in 11 groups. An ED and two aspherical elements help minimize color aberration and distortion. Two high index low dispersion lenses also heighten clarity. Outstanding focusing accuracy under virtually all conditions is assured by a dual autofocus system. While the single-beam, twin-sensor active infrared unit takes initial readings, the passive contrast detection system fine-tunes the focus. The active infrared system moreover assures sharp photos even in extreme low-light conditions. For super-fast adjustments, manual control of zoom and focus is afforded by two rings on the camera's lens. This Olympus E20P Digital SLR camera comes with a set of handy accessories that includes Olympus TCON-14B 1.45x Tele-converter, Olympus WCON-08B 0.7x Wide-angle converter, Olympus leather case, Olympus Case for SmartMedia cards, 64 MB SmartMedia card, Neckstrap.
