Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Life is in the details, and the EVOLT E-410 was built to let you capture all of them. The Live View LCD is an uncommonly cool feature for a digital SLR. And when you experience the ergonomic feel and lightweight portability of this camera, you’ll want to take it everywhere. Whether the important details of your life are smiling faces or far-away places, you’ll capture pristine, detailed memories, thanks to a proven Dust Reduction System and powerful 10-megapixel imager.

EVOLT E410 Highlights

Innovative 2.5-inch Live View HyperCrystal LCD The E-410 offers ease-of-shooting and greater flexibility with the Live View LCD. Composing photographs is easier as subjects can be seen on the Live View LCD, which offers a wide 176-degree viewing angle. This enables images to be effortlessly taken from angles that would typically be difficult with a traditional optical viewfinder -- which is still the only option on many competing digital SLR cameras. Interacting with subjects, such as toddlers and pets, is also possible thanks to the Live View LCD, which enables pictures to be taken while holding the camera away from your face.

The E-410’s big and bright 2.5-inch LCD display with approximately 230,000 pixels includes HyperCrystal technology, which offers many times the contrast of conventional LCD monitors, and enables images to be beautifully displayed in vivid color -- both in preview and playback. The HyperCrystal LCD also provides a wide viewing angle, which ensures images can be composed from even the most obscure angles. The larger LCD makes viewing icons and text on the camera’s menu a squint-free process.

Coupled with the underwater housing, the Live View LCD also makes underwater photography easy, where looking through a traditional optical viewfinder is extremely inconvenient.

Detailed, bright, and colorful photos with 10-megapixel Live MOS image sensor The E-410 is loaded with an impressive 10 million pixels for high-resolution photos. The 10-megapixel sensor gives users the flexibility to blow-up their prints to the large sizes supported by many of today’s printers, or crop the image to print only a part of the image that is important to them. The high-performance Live MOS image sensor in the E-410 delivers excellent dynamic range for accurate color fidelity, and a new state-of-the-art amplifier circuit to eradicate noise and capture fine image details in the highlight and shadow areas.

Dust Reduction System for spot-free images Olympus’ proven Dust Reduction System produces spot-free photos with the exclusive Supersonic Wave Filter. The patented ultrasonic technology vibrates to remove dust and other particles from the front of the image sensor and captures it on a special adhesive membrane every time the camera is turned on. These spot-free photos liberate users from hours spent retouching photographs at the computer or sending their cameras back to the manufacturer to remove dust trapped inside.

TruePic III for image clarity Olympus’ enhanced TruePic III Image Processor produces crystal clear photos using all the pixel information for each image to provide the best digital images possible for every photo with accurate color, true-to-life flesh tones, brilliant blue skies and precise tonal representation in between. TruePic III also lowers image noise by one step to reduce noise in images shot at higher ISO settings, enabling great results in low-light situations.

Underwater photography An optional underwater case (PT-E-03), five lens ports and a flash housing enable adventurous photographers to capture the delights of the aquatic world down to depths of approximately 131 feet (40 meters). The EVOLT E-410’s Live View mode makes digital SLR photography a breeze for both the first-time or experienced underwater photographer.

Easy-to-use, easy-to-handle light and ergonomic design The EVOLT E-410 is extremely portable, measuring 5.1 inches (129.5mm) by 3.58 inches (91mm) and 2.1 inches (53mm), excluding protrusions, and weighing 13.4 ounces (380 grams) body only. The new camera has a classic penta-mirror design that is light and compact enough to comfortably shoot with all day. Beyond its portable size, the E-410 delivers unparalleled ease of use -- from menus that make sense and buttons on the body that are easy to understand and operate, to automatic settings for every imaginable situation.

While the E-410 includes a full range of manual control options to customize your creativity, it also has 30 shooting modes designed to provide the ideal settings for a variety of shooting situations automatically. These include Digital Image Stabilization, Night Scene, Fireworks, Beach and Snow, Underwater, and Candle Light to name a few, as well as an xD Panorama mode (for use with Olympus xD-Picture Cards). Users also benefit from special color modes and the possibility to apply a variety of Black & White filters.

A new high-power rechargeable battery is included with the E-410 so that users can keep shooting for extended periods. Accepting both CompactFlash Type I & II, Microdrives, and xD-Picture Cards, the camera provides a choice of data storage options for enhanced flexibility, and it is possible to transfer image files from one card to the other right inside the camera.

Included 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 and 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 Zuiko lenses The versatility of the Olympus E-System comes from delivering the largest selection of "Designed-for-Digital" lenses -- more than any other manufacturer to date. Olympus’ Zuiko Digital Specific Lenses come in a wide range of focal lengths to achieve the best image result in any given situation, and impress with their spectacular clarity and edge-to-edge sharpness.

The E-410 one-lens outfit includes a compact, Zuiko Digital ED 14-42 mm f3.5-f5.6 Lens (equivalent to 28mm-84mm in 35mm photography) that perfectly matches the imager so light strikes the sensor directly to ensure rich, accurate colors and edge-to-edge sharpness. Its 3x ED Glass zoom lens covers the range most frequently used in everyday photography and weighs just 7.5 ounces, offering users an extremely dynamic, portable everyday-use zoom. Close-ups as near as 9.84 inches (0.25 m) are also possible throughout the zoom range.

The E-410 two-lens outfit adds the Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 (80-300mm equivalent) Lens, which provides users with greater telephoto power for far-away shots in a compact size. This telephoto lens is smaller than many standard zoom lenses at 2.6 inch diameter x 2.8 inch length and a weight of 8.8 ounces -- a real benefit for anyone who wants to pack a powerful zoom lens without taking up much space. It also has great close focusing abilities, and is able to capture a subject up-close from a distance of 31.5 inches (.8m).

Both lenses are exceptionally compact, allowing unimpeded mobility. They are sized for comfortable handling and designed for maximum image quality at an excellent price. Most important, these new lenses have the world-renowned ED lenses that deliver stunning high-quality images.

All E-Series cameras support the Four-Thirds Standard whereby Olympus and various other manufacturers produce high-quality Four-Thirds-compliant lenses and accessories that are specifically designed for digital SLR image capture. Because the E-410 is part of the Olympus E-System, it is compatible with a large and growing range of Olympus E-System accessories to further enhance personal shooting styles and applications. This includes the full line-up of Zuiko Digital Specific lenses and flashes.

If you're top priority is a small, interchangeable lens digital SLR, then the E-410 should be the place to start. There are none smaller, and the telephoto 40-150 is exceptionally short. It's light weight, and has all the basic features most people want or need in a SLR. It's basic enough for beginners, and featured enough (and good enough image quality) to satisy most advanced amatuers.

However, before you buy, you must understand two things: smaller SLRs and the 4/3rd system.

The smaller SLRs from all brands (Canon XTi, Nikon D40/D40x) have trade-offs. They all use the rear LCD for everything. Combined with the smaller battery for the smaller body, battery performance is not as good as the next size up (E-510, D80, etc.). Additionally, the magnification inside the viewfinder is less, making manual focusing (or seeing fine detail) a bit more difficult.

The 4/3rd system is also new to most people. In an attempt to compete with the well established Big Boys, Olympus, Panasonic & Leica now offer a new lens mount, where lenses can be interchanged among brands. The only problem is that Olympus is the only real line from these three, while Leica is now offering two lenses total, and Panasonic...none. The only major independent manufacturer currently making 4/3rd lenses is Sigma, and they do not offer most of their line in this mount. However, for most beginners, the two lense offered in this kit will be all they need.

The other major difference with this system is that it is a different "format". Traditional 35mm cameras produced a 3:2 format (which we typically call 4x6 because most labs produce that size of prints). The typical print from a 4/3rd camera would be 4x5, a more typical size from the older studio medium format film cameras.

I am appreciating this camera more every day. Last weekend I took it to a wedding, and in fact I had the smallest SLR at the entire party. It made it easy for me to carry it and take shots the entire day. Also the battery performance was very good (I took more than 150 pictures and the battery was still far from empty).

I bought this camera for traveling, size and weight was an important consideration and I really like the camera for this. I take it everywhere.

It has all the advantages of an SLR (manual controls, seeing through the lens, interchangeable lenses), with the portability of a compact camera. Your hands should not be too big, if they are you would probably be better off with the e-510.

The 40-150 lens included in the kit is very light and portable and produces some excellent quality shots.
I like the performance of the camera, it has fast startup and excellent shutter performance.

The live view mode as advertised is not that useful, mainly because of the latency when pressing the shutter button. I hardly use the feature.

My previous camera was a compact camera (Canon Powershot S50). It took me some time to get used to the e-410 (being a SLR camera) and to learn how to use all its features.

I've had this unit a few weeks...and it seems to preform fine...good quality images....I did turn exposure comp to + 1/3 and noise filter to LOW and
Noise Reduct to off....and as far as the 4/3 system...I go to Wolf/Ritz Camera and get their 4 1/2 x 6 in print...it's full frame for 4/3 system..I also have 2 canon 20D's so this is not my 1st slr...I would say this is a great value...and the telephoto lens is very compact

The E410 is my first digital SLR, and in the 6 months I've had it, I've been tremendously happy with it. Olympus has crammed a good deal of power into a compact body. The kit lenses are a bit slow but turn out outstanding images given enough light. The body fits in the hand very well, the controls are well-placed, and the onscreen controls and menus are well organized, so you never get bogged down hunting for what you want.

So why only three stars? One, because of the limited (but improving) selection of fourthirds lenses, but mostly because new buyers, unless they need to shave every ounce, would do well to look at the E510. The "big brother" of the E410 is only a little larger, takes Olympus's standard, higher-capacity BLM-1 battery, and features in-body image stabilization that works with any fourthirds lens, greatly reducing blur in handheld shooting. For those who understand the 410's limits and want the world's lightest DSLR, I'd recommend it wholeheartedly.

Verified Purchase
As a person who was a serious SLR film enthusiast about 27yrs. ago with a Cannon A1, I decided, after purchasing a good quality digital point and shoot camera a couple of years ago, to get back into photography, but this time digital photography. So, after reading about several new DSLR cameras this past summer, I decided to buy the Olympus E-410 a couple of months ago. The important factors were its compact size, cost, self-cleaning sensor, live view LCD, and ease of use. After two months and about 700+ pictures, I can happily say that this camera is serving its purpose in introducing me to the wonderful world of DSLR photography. In my opinion, one of its strengths is its solid build despite its light weight. The buttons and dials feel good and you're unlikely to accidently change a setting. There is one weakness in the E-410 which deals with backlighting without the use of flash. The only way of correcting it is by going to the EV compensation with a +2/3 or +3/3(this equals 1 f stop), or the manual mode with a +1 f stop exposure. With most cameras, you can simply point and focus on the darker area and press the shutter halfway and you'll see the camera making the appropriate adjustments.

In regards to the two lenses that come with the E-410, I really appreciate the performance of the 14-42mm lense. I've taken many excellent close up pictures of flowers with it. Sigma, however, does have a better and faster, but more expensive, f:2.8 18-50mm lense. The 40-150mm lense is nice to have due to its light weight and compact size, but you may want to get the Zuiko(Olympus) f:2.8-3.5 50-200mm lense later on when you can afford it because it's also somewhat more expensive. Overall, the lense kit is good. Right now, I'm now starting to work with RAW format pictures using this excellent camera.
