OlympusOlympus E-510 Review : Olympus is making waves with the digital SLR cameras. The models are quickly being improved and renewed. We still await the successor of the E-1 (Olympus E-3), but the Olympus E-510 D-SLR gives us a taste of what is to come. The Olympus E-510 is the successor of the E-500, which was released more than a year and a half ago. The changes made to the E-400 in the E-410 were minimal, but the Olympus E-510 digital SLR is truly different from its predecessor. An important change is the image sensor. Olympus uses a Panasonic sensor for the E-510 instead of a Kodak sensor. The CCD has been replaced with the LiveMOS. As the name suggests, the Olympus E-510 also has Live View, just like other Olympus models have.

Olympus E-510 Live View
Live View is now definitively the future of the DSLR. Not only Olympus and Panasonic are applying this, but also Canon and Nikon have included Live View in their new DSLR products. At first Olympus and Panasonic were looked upon with pity when they first showed the Live View, but quickly it appeared to be a consumer advantage.

Olympus E-510 Flash Memory Cards
Olympus has already gotten us used to the xD Picture Card as storage format. Olympus was after all one of the ones who pioneered this format. Luckily Olympus knows that not everyone is pleased with the xD cards and that there are also ‘switchers’, who already have different memory cards. That is why it is a good thing that the Olympus E-510 also uses CompactFlash cards. They are available in all kinds of capacities and speeds for very affordable prices.


Olympus E-510 SLR Review
Next to the new sensor the amount of pixels has increased. The Olympus E-510 now has ten Megapixels, the same amount as the E-410. This amount of resolution allows for large prints. The signal is processed differently than in the E-410, though, so that we can expect different results. Thanks to the SuperSonic Wave Filter placed in front of the sensor, you do not longer have to worry about having to retouch a lot of dust spots. This is great, because with ten Megapixels you can see almost every detail. The filter in front of the sensor shakes and the sensor itself can move as well. This has allowed Olympus to integrate a physical image stabilizer. You do not need special lenses in order to prevent blur from camera shake. We have tested an Olympus E-510 and a few lenses for a while in our test lab. The results can be read in the following Olympus E-510 review.
