Olympus E5 review

OlympusOlympus E5 review : In the summer of 2003 Olympus launched the world’s first Four Thirds system camera, the E-1. It was a daring move, completely against the grain, but that made it so unique. It was the beginning of a new segment within the DSLR market. This beginning was anything but easy and it took a mere four years before a successor came, which was the E-3. In the meantime, new Four Thirds cameras were introduced by Olympus, but they were aimed at the amateur. The most recent ‘professional’ model is the Olympus E-5.

Olympus E5 review - Camera operation
Whoever already has experience with the E-3 shall find many similarities in terms of operation. The many buttons give direct access to the most important settings and functions. On the back of the body the program setting (P/S/A/M) can be adjusted immediately via the so-called Mode button. Push and turn the dial, and you have fast operation actions that save a lot of time. Naturally you can quickly adjust other functions according to preference such as ISO, white balance, AF, etc. It depends on the type of setting or function whether the dial on the front or the back of the camera is used. After having used the Olympus E5 for a while in practice, it becomes automatic to make the right adjustment, and you keep getting faster at it.

Review Olympus E5 - Creative filters
New for this segment, Olympus Pro DSLR cameras have built-in creative filters. You can choose from a mere ten filters, from pop-art to dramatic tone, from soft-sepia to soft-focus. Normally we are not such filter fans, but just like in the PEN series, the filter effects are applied directly in the camera, so that as a photographer you also consider the type of filter while making up the composition. That has a very different effect on the photography than when you apply filters after having made the shot. In our opinion, creative filters are a valuable application and also add extra creativity during photography.

Olympus E5 review
Upon first glance, we see an E-3 with a larger screen, but the Olympus E-5 has much more to offer. The image sensor has improved, it has a new processor and we discovered a couple of new functions. xD flash memory is no longer supported; instead the SD/SDHC platform in combination with the CompactFlash memory card was chosen to replace it. At the moment, the Olympus E-5 is at the top of the Four Thirds system camera segment. It is time to read our findings in the full Olympus E-5 review.
