~Do U Wanna Surf In The Waves Of Olympus?~ Review with images

AdvantagesLots of stuff

Disadvantageswhen you want to record a video sometimes it gets blurry

"Welcome to my review about Olympus E-410, this is a very good camera for taking photos and stuff. In this review, you will find the information about the camera, my experience, the accessories of the camera and many more. '''The information about the camera''' Light and compact with Live View (this is good that it is light , so if i gave it to a baby would it fall from his/her hand? Try doing that and you will see, but don't give it to a new ..." Read review

Photo Phantastic! Review with images

AdvantagesLight, compact and jam packed full of options and features.

DisadvantagesSome experience needed to get use of all the functions!

"...day photography course using the Olympus E-410 I thought it would be a perfect time to write about it whilst it is still fresh in my mind. The first thing that struck me about this DSLR camera was the light weight and the fact that it actually felt more like a compact digital than the professional DSLR that it is. Often amateur photographers tend to stick to top of the range compacts rather than venture into the world of DSLR because of the amount ..." Read review

Olympus E410 at their best, as usual

Advantagesweight, all the cables you need, battery life, lenses quality

Disadvantagesediting software needs to be purchased

"...surprised as it is an Olympus and this should tell all. It comes as a two lenses package, 14-42 and 40-150. As usual Zuiko lenses are on the top quality, excellent light rating 3.5-3.6 and 4-5.6 respectively. Extensive menus that will take you some time to get used to and to explore. Once you get the grip on the settings and how to use them to your way, these menus will become intuitive and easier to use as everything is on its place. You can save ..." Read review

Olympus EVOLT E-410. A little SLR for a little price

AdvantagesSmall, Light, Inexpensive, Easy menus and options

DisadvantagesManual/Auto focus switching is awkward and can not accommodate macro rings

"...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 smallest, lightest digital SLR at the time of release. This has obvious advantages when carrying and holding the camera for handheld shots, which was great for a newcomer, but ..." Read review

Olympus E-410 is a Fantastic SLR Camera!!

AdvantagesFantastic quality photos, lighter than most SLR's, good value for money, long battery life.

DisadvantagesLittle complex out of auto focus mode.

"...pannorama you will need a Olympus XD M card. The only disadvantage is it can be a little fidaly getting into manual focus mode and the booklet although pretty helpful is still a pain to read. You do however get a DVD which will give you a basic introduction to SLR shooting which in my opinion didnt go into enough detail. Overall fantastic a camera which is perfect for a newbee, but you have to be interested to venture out of the auto focus mode. ..." Read review

The Olympus E410 is my ideal camera.

AdvantagesLight weight for a dSLR; excellent image quality.

DisadvantagesFiddly to operate while wearing mountaineering gloves!

"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 to the printed guide book, finding it easy to find the relevant information. Later, I sat down down and read through the manual with the camera in hand, ..." Read review

The OLYMPUS E410 is A pleasure to use

AdvantagesLightweight , fun to use , Great Picture quality , endless range of functions , well priced

DisadvantagesCan Take a While to understand all of the functions

"...and while looking around, the OLYMPUS E410 certainly stood out for me. It is very light weight compared to all the other SLR's and a pleasure to use , as well as being comfortable to hold , unlike some of the more bulky SLR's. Upgrading from a compact digital camera to the E410 has been much easier , down to the "Live Function" that this camera has, so you can take shots through the LCD Screen , instead of just the view finder , which is an uncommon ..."

Quick review of Olympus E-410

"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.

Easy to use DSLR

Advantagesvery reliable, easy to use, many settings

Disadvantageslenses can be expensive

"I bought this camera about a year ago on ebay, for about Ģ300 and i love it!! It is a great DSLR, very lightweight and easy to use for the amateur photographer. These cameras can be bought at very reasonable prices together with the lenses, however lens prices can vary and can also be very expensive bought by themselves, although i have seen lenses that will fit this camera much cheaper online. This camera takes XD and CF memory cards, these also ..." Read review

Mount Olympus

AdvantagesExcellent Shot!

DisadvantagesI know cameras are sensitive to light.. that's all i know, but correct me if i'm wrong.

"I used this camera last time. I never owned a camera, but I'm a photo enthusiast. Regarding this product, for me, it is EXCELLLENT! It helps a lot to review and study the images captured by this thing. I even won in one of the contests held in our school compared to my last used camera. The aperture, depth of field is 2 thumbs up. The image quality is very fantastic. The product has so many features, which other cameras doesn't have. The one ..." Read review

why should you buy the E410

Advantagesexcellent image quality, sturdy design, great all rounder

Disadvantagesflash gun is almost essential for poorer lighting conditions

"...retain fabulous image quality. the olympus E410 comes highly recommended in my opinion although if u are going to buy this camera i would most certainly advise on buying a dedicated flash gun too. Since using the olympus E410 i have started to earn myself a little extra money on the side as a photographer, this camera really is that good. it's sturdy, light and reliable and for a sub Ģ400 price tag you really cant go wrong here. Buy with confidence ..." Read review

Ideal Budget Digital SLR camera.

AdvantagesEasy to use, very good picture quality, editing software & ,enhanced user guide on CD

DisadvantagesWill take the novice a decent length of time to understand all the advance settings

"As a complete novice in the DSLR camera. I required something to shoot Silver Jewellery for my own use. Previous camera was a Samsung S630, which was ok but just not up to the job for a top quality shot. The E-410 was excellent. Shot items in a lightbox with a cyan background. Got a good clean shot with accurate colours, minimal reflections. From switching on to a shot I was satisfied with, in less than an hour. This was with plenty of messing ..." Read review
