Olympus E-400 Review|
According to Joshua Waller: "The camera is very easy to use, especially in the AUTO mode and the scene modes, even though the camera has a lot of options. The controls on the back of the camera are quite straightforward - the menus are responsive and easy to read and navigate. The menus are also easy to use, and the options are big enough and easy enough to see clearly. The modes are easy to access, quick and simple, mainly thanks to the large screen (most options are easily accessible by use of the ok button and the direction arrows) which makes it easier to use."
Olympus E-400 camera - Buttons and Ergonomics
Joshua continues: "The shutter release is good. The scrolling wheel has multiple functions and in play mode is used to zoom in on your picture so you compare magnified sections of one image with the previous or next, making it simple to decide which shot is the one with least camera shake. I thought the camera felt good ergonomically, despite the cameras lack of handgrip compared to other Olympus DSLRs, the small body is easy to hold, and has good sized rubber grips at the front and back."
Olympus E-400 digital SLR camera - Image quality and RAW
"Image quality is very good to excellent, the images have excellent colour, with good saturation, contrast and detail, with low noise except for high ISO images. Images were slightly soft straight from the camera and could benefit from sharpening - for maximum detail and colour control RAW images should be taken. Purple fringing was very low, as was red-eye. The camera did a good job focusing even in low light thanks to the flash assist. I did not notice vignetting in photos, nor did I notice barrel or pincushion distortion. There is a very good range of image sizes, and a good choice of compression options (including RAW)," concludes Joshua. You want to learn more about the Olympus digital SLR camera?
