This is my first review in a long while so bare with me folks I might be a bit rusty.

One of the first things you notice about the Olympus E-410 is that it is not much bigger or heavier than some zoom cameras, being dwarfed by the Canon EOS 50D that I have purchased since. The body measures 130mm x 91mm x 53mm and wieghs in at around 420g (including battery), making it the...

I've owned an Olympus E410 for a year now. When I got it I was very impressed with the compact size, light weight and capabilities. I found it easy to use, straight out of the box, for taking basic shots. Sometimes I got stuck in the menus when trying to do something different, and had to refer...

Earlier in the year I took this camera when I treated my fiance to the British Grand Prix. I was amazed at the clarity and the number of perfect pictures I managed to get of the F1 cars as they flew past. (Especially Lewis Hamilton!) Not being a professional photographer and not the best at reading the manual fully, I found the simple programme settings and changing the lens no problem. This nifty little camera is great value for money and in my opinion is up there as one of the leading olympus cameras. I would recommend this camera to somebody that wants a versatile camera that takes simple quality pictures without the need to spend hours reading a manual. My top tip if you want to compare this camera with others to see if it's the right one for you is use this website to compare features.
