OlympusOlympus E-450 DSLR review : With the arrival of the Olympus E-450, the assortment of FourThirds DSLR cameras is enhanced once more. The Olympus E-450 is the successor to the E-420 and takes over the lead of being one of the world's most compact DSLR cameras. This fight is literally battled out over millimeters and milligrams and the competition is killing. Olympus is facing brands like Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Sony. Olympus does manage to stand out thanks to its FourThirds system, but to be honest, the differences are becoming smaller every day.

Olympus DSLR review - Compact entry-level SLR
The compact size of the Olympus E-450 makes it very tempting to take the camera with you at all times. The light weight is comfortable to carry around and does not influence the stability of the camera in a negative way. The build of the E450 provides a good hand-fit. The E-450 features a small handgrip that is unobtrusive, yet still offers just that little extra grip that is needed to ensure the camera lies stable in your hand. This means the Olympus E450 can easily keep up with competing Megazoom cameras.

Olympus DSLR test - Dust removal system
We don't think twice about it, but when activating the Olympus E450 DSLR camera, the dust removal system is automatically activated. It does not cause any noticeable delay, which means you are able to take the first picture immediately after activating the camera. The general camera settings will appear on the monitor offering all the relevant information at one glance. When Live View is activated, this information turns into a handful of pictograms displayed in a small size on the right side of the monitor.

Olympus E450 DSLR review including a DIWA Labs test
Shortly after testing the Olympus E-620, a camera leaning against the more expensive E-30, it is now the turn of the E-450, the youngest member of the Olympus FourThirds series of DSLR cameras. We were able to test this camera for a short period of time, and additionally put the E-450 through extensive technical tests in our DIWA Lab. In this lab, tests are carried out standardized, enabling a 1-to-1 comparison with other camera models. A balanced review is the result of combining these two tests together. Our findings can be read in the following Olympus E-450 review.
