Some customer reviews of Olympus E-600 with 14-42mm lens

Most helpful reviews

Lon, Dunoon Record picture man!

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent buy! Real SLR with optical viewfinder and very good live view and adjustable screen all at a very good price. Didn't want to pay E620 prices for the extra belts and whistles. Pocket size handbook is one of the best reference documents I've come across in recent times. Sensor based image stabilization means affordable lenses. Camera and menus are very easy to use but unfortunately Mr Auto is proving to be a better photographer than I!
Bad points:
Depth of field adjustments can be difficult to arrange with the smaller 4/3rds type of lens systems. Calibration marks on the manual focus ring would be useful. There isn't such a thing as a cheap SLR as there are just too many "nice to have" and "must have" things to go with them!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The E600 is a very good camera for the price. Image quality is not quite up to the standard of recent Nikon and Canon DSLR's, but the kit lenses are good and image stabilisation is built into the body. The articulated lens is very useful. I use an old f2 50mm lens with it.

Peter, Lancaster Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is my first D SLR camera and so far find it very good & easy to use in Auto mode. Not sure yet what I am doing in manual settings but it very easy to experiment. Battery life is brilliant, far longer than any other camera I have had or used. The ability to have two different media cards at the same time is a good feature. The stabilizations works well.
Bad points:
None yet that i have found.

Manufacturer's Description

Unleash your creativity with the super-compact, image-stabilized E-600 DSLR. It’s the DSLR that puts creative freedom in the palm of your hands. Three creative in-camera art filters and a swivel Live View 2.7” HyperCrystal III LCD offer creative freedom and endless shooting possibilities. The 12.3-megapixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic III+ image processor provide exceptional picture quality. With in-body Image Stabilization and small 16.76-ounce body, the E-600 is a camera that truly lets you shoot outside the frame.

THREE ART FILTERS.
The three in-camera art filters transform your photography into works of art. Pop Art super-saturates colors, creating brighter, more vivid photographs. Soft Focus creates a dreamlike quality giving photographs a fantasy feel. Pin Hole darkens the outer edges of a photograph, therefore enhancing the subject in the center and bringing the photograph to life.

AF LIVE VIEW WITH 2.7" HYPERCRYSTAL III SWIVEL LCD.
The E-600’s 100-percent accurate 270-degree swivel 2.7-inch Live View HyperCrystal III LCD can be rotated freely so photographers can compose at any angle, including overhead and down low. This enables a photographer to compose a subject on the Live View LCD and see the results of the various creative features – live as they’re happening. The LCD displays in vivid color and provides a wide viewing angle of 176 degrees, which ensures images can be composed from even the most obscure angles.

FAST AND ACCURATE: SEVEN-POINT TWIN AUTOFOCUS.
The seven-point twin cross AF system provides fast and accurate focusing. Super sensitive seven-point Twin including, five-Twin Cross AF target points, can measure focus both vertically and horizontally, so regardless of the subject, focusing is super-simple and fast. With a dedicated Phase Detection AF sensor, shooting moving subjects, like a runner crossing the finish line. In low-light situations, this is the AF option of choice to quickly lock focus, so that a loved one’s face illuminated only by candlelight is in sharp focus.

12.3-MEGAPIXEL LIVE MOS.
The E-600 packs a 12.3 MP Live MOS sensor and the TruePic III+ image processing engine to provide accurate color fidelity, sharp detail, professional picture quality, and overall superior performance. The sensor delivers excellent dynamic range with ISO up to 3200 and reduce noise and capture fine image details in both highlight and shadow areas.

IN-BODY IMAGE STABILIZATION (3 MODES).
The E-600 features three modes of in-body Image Stabilization. That means you can use any Four Thirds lens, from wide-angle to telephoto, for perfectly clear, crisp photos no matter what the shooting situation, even in low light situations. With the E-600, you can compensate for camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps.

FACE DETECTION (8 FACES).
Face Detection reduces the chance of blurred subjects in photography by distinguishing between people’s faces and the background. It tracks up to eight faces within the image area, even if people are moving, and automatically focuses and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures (ideal for large family or party group photos).

SHADOW ADJUSTMENT TECHNOLOGY.
Shadow Adjustment Technology compensates for extreme contrast when shadowed areas lack visible detail. Shadow Adjustment Technology adjusts the exposure in the shadows while retaining all the detail in the bright areas. This technology works automatically when using Face Detection, Live View and in Scene-Select Modes.

PROVEN DUST REDUCTION TECHNOLOGY.
The Olympus dust reduction system is an industry first and a proven technology. Every time you turn on the E-600, our Supersonic Wave Filter™ — located between the shutter and the image sensor — silently vibrates an amazing 30,000 times per second. Dust will no longer get between you and a great shot.

WIRELESS FLASH.
If you decide to try your hand at advanced lighting techniques, the E-600 is ready to meet the challenge. The E-600 is compatible with the Olympus FL-50R and FL-36R wireless electronic flashes that are designed exclusively for digital photography. When these flashes are used in combination with the E-600, wireless multi-flash photography is possible.

TRUEPIC III+.
The 12.3 megapixel E-600’s TruePic III+ Image Processor produces crystal-clear photos with accurate color, true-to-life flesh tones, brilliant blue skies and precise tonal representation. TruePic III+ also lowers image noise by one step to reduce graininess in images shot at higher ISO settings, enabling great results in low-light situations.
