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 Zuiko lens 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.

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.

I am very impressed with this digital SLR. For years I used Olympus OM series film cameras with satsfaction. As digital camera image quality improved, I decided to go digital and have tried Nikon, Canon and Fuji SLRs. All were bulky and heavy, showing their heritage as modified designs for 35mm film adapted for use with smaller digital sensors.

Having design their E-series as digital from the outset, Olympus seem to me to have far superior handling qualities. Carrying an E-410 all day is far preferrable to any of the rival makers models I bought. I first used an E-400, and agreed with the reviews which found images taken at high ISO "filmspeed" settings somewhat noisy. This problem is resolved in the E-410 which uses a different sensor. Another improvement is in the autofucussing which is again, much improved.

As well as the conventional SLR viewfinder, the E-410 gives one the option of composing shots in the LCD screen on the camera back as a "live preview". It would be great if this worked as quickly as on a pocket digital camera, but there is in fact quite a delay between pressing the shutter release and the image being focussed and captured. Notwishtanding this, I have found the live preview invaluable for macro work and I would hate to be without it now.

Another good feature of the recent E-series models is the "supersonic wave filter for dust reduction". Unlike film SLR cameras, digital ones can be ruined by dust on the sensor introduced when lenses are changed. Nikon offers sofware which maps and then cancels out the specks - sounds like a rubbish "solution"! Olympus and Canon offer sonic systems which shake the sensor at start up to keep dust away.

I am really happy with this camera. I did a lot of research comparing it with other comparable 10MP DSLR's like the Nikon D40X and the Canon Digital Rebel XTi, and although these others have their own subtle advantages over the E410, the price, functionality, quality, and portability (due to its light weight) can't be beat. It has taken me a little bit to get used to the functions of this camera (this is my first digital SLR) but it hasn't taken me long to appreciate all its capabilities. I do look forward to getting a longer focal length zoom lens and a flash, at some point. But definitely it's lots of fun and easy to play around with for indoor and outdoor photos.

It has been a great camera, meeting all my interest in having a very small and lightweight SLR camera with professional features. I would recommend it to others, with one small reservation. The default noise reduction filter setting is too aggressive and significantly softens fine detail in photos. With noise filtering turned off the pictures are crisp.

Very nice camera well built and extensive set of features too. I did not expect the live view feature to be so handy and useful. It is very easy to use, with all switches in the right places.
the E410 is for armature and pro alike so its excellent entry level DSLR. With Panasonic and lieca adopting their four third system, the future is bright.
Drawback of that system Chinese made and the AF only three (comparing to 9 in canon 400D)
If you can pay little extra, go for the E510 its even better

I've only had this camera about a month, but so far, I am really happy with it. It's small, lightweight, and easy to use. It takes great pictures in both bright and low light.

The only reason I give this 4 starts out of 5 is that the operation can be a little slow, especially when making long exposures - there seems to be quite a delay in the time between when the shutter closes to when it displays your image, but other than that, this camera is perfect.

I am a fan of film myself, and for any serious work I will probably always use film. I bought this camera for a photography class, and it's great for taking photos that turn out beautifully and are quickly and easily transferred to a class computer to turn in.

I have had my e410 for a few days now. I read some different reviews on it. All of them had nothing but good things to say about this camera. With in a day I knew what all the settings are and how to use it all manually. At first I was scared that there was too much. I picked up the manual and looked it over. The manual is Great. It explains every thing from what SLR stand for to focusing. Very user friendly with your trusting manual by your side you will have it all figured out in a day.

I love all the different settings to pick from. I love the size. Its small but light it fits well in my hands. My husband said "it's so small and light, but has grips in all the right places I can hold it all day." He has bigger hands then me and still found it comfortable.

The Live LCD screen is nice but I like to use the eye piece better for focusing. All the buttons are in the right places. The photo quality is great. With the software they give you allows you to put together panoramic photos. I LOVE THAT.

The manual focus is not like others. It's better for just fine adjusting. If you put in on seim automatic this way you can let the camera focus and then tweak it to what you want and that works great.

You can't beat the quality for the price. I was looking at Nikons and Cannons. The ones in this price rang did not impress me. This camera is just as good as the d40. If not better.

I could go on and on about this camera. I love it and you can't go wrong with it. This is my first DSLR I moved up from my old 35-mm SLR and this is a great camera to do that with. I highly recommend the E410 to anyone that wants a good travel DSLR that is fun to use and takes a great photo.
