OlympusOlympus E-620 review : At the time of the Olympus E-620 introduction, it was not yet clear that this would in fact be the only new digital SLR during the PMA show. Whether or not this signifies something is yet to be discovered, although it certainly is remarkable. The Olympus E-620 looks a lot like the semi-professional Olympus E-30, which was introduced in last year's Q4. However, it is by no means merely a simple copy; saying that would really disqualify the Olympus E620. The camera's interior is newly developed, maintaining the functionalities of its big brother, the E30.

The Olympus E-620 is clearly an Olympus DSLR. The camera is a mixture of the E450/E520 cameras with a touch of the E-30; it is in fact quite an achievement to design it this way. The compact dimensions of the camera did not stop Olympus from updating the back with a convenient folding-out and tilting LCD screen, something the E-450/E-520 both lack. On one hand, the design of the Olympus E-620 does not stand out, offering many familiar features which are already found in the current DSLR series cameras of Olympus. On the other hand, it is certainly an achievement to provide the Olympus E-620 with certain features of both worlds, those of the entry-level cameras (E-450/E-520) and those of the semiprofessional E-30.

A camera's operation is an important factor. The famous - or despised if you like- , AUTO button is available once again. This mode lets you shoot in the simplest way possible. However, if you're the slightest bit interested in photography, which most consumers buying a DSLR are likely to be, you will soon leave the AUTO path. The P/S/A/M mode enables adjusting the shutter speed and aperture manually, allowing you to decide the exposure in the 'old-fashioned' way. This goes without saying for the photographer, however, automation is also gradually taking its place within DSLR photography.

Olympus E-volt review : E-620
So this is a new FourThirds digital SLR camera of Olympus that comes at a time where many interested photographers are actually getting ready for the camera that will represent the Micro FourThirds system of Olympus. During PMA, it became clear that the coming summer will be the moment when the Micro Four Thirds camera will officially become part of the Olympus stable. Yet, Olympus leaves no doubts about its loyalty to the FourThirds system. This is a clear sign to the consumer; a good and reliable sign in fact. We thoroughly tested the Olympus E-620 in practice, as well as in the DIWA Lab for its technical quality. Our findings can be read in the following Olympus E-620 review.
