OlympusOlympus E-420 review : Although we just experienced a hectic period with many introductions, Olympus introduced, rather unexpectedly, their new digital SLR sibling; the Olympus E420. The Olympus E420 SLR is clearly based on the E410, which was introduced last year, but has undergone some changes when it comes to the inner parts of the camera. Almost immediately after the introduction, we received a full production model in combination with the standard ZUIKO Digital zoom lens (14-42mm) and a beautiful super compact lens, the 25mm pancake f/2.8 lens. The Olympus E420, the kit lens 14-42mm and the new 25mm pancake lens form an interesting DSLR set. > Read our review about the Olympus E420 and find out more about this SLR set.

Olympus E420 vs E410
Even though the Olympus E420 may look similar to its predecessor; a number of subtle changes can still be noted. A few symbols have been added to the housing, and the previously green-coloured symbols are now blue. In addition, the small handgrip now features a clearly perceptible edge which should give the camera a more stable hand-fit. And last but not least, the LCD monitor on the back of the camera has been enlarged from 2.5 to 2.7 inch.

Like its predecessor, the Olympus E420 supports two formats of storage media. Olympus’ proper xD Picture card is still too dear to say goodbye to. Besides that there is the possibility of using the CompactFlash as memory card. I wonder how long we will still see xD picture cards pass by. Now that Fujifilm also supports SD and SDHC cards, it seems that the xD card's market share shrinks every day. SD and SDHC have reached the 32GB capacity by now whilst xD is still stuck on 2GB. In any case, the CF card is the solution. With the support of the CompactFlash storage, capacity can't be a problem. Read the full Olympus E-420 review and judge our Olympus sample photos.
