You would expect a high end camera to have an exceptional rapport with customers and dealers alike. There should be very few limitations that can arise from using a device at an expensive price, although there are exceptions to this ruling. If you have the money to purchase a model set at this range though, you will inevitably notice the quality of the images and the uncomplicated menu functions that dictate how popular the devices are.
For a digital single lens reflex machine, the high end market, particularly those priced at around $1000, will often be set at a 10 megapixel rate in order to encapsulate the functions that bring out certain features in the images you wish to capture. For example, there are models that come with two lenses, and these are set to different rates so that both the zoom and focus can be altered to find perfect quality. With these images, especially on the E 510 from Olympus, you should find that the quality can be rather bright and sharp, even when the zoom is set to a higher level. There have been some issues with the quality, as it has been widely stated that some of the cheaper models perform just as well in this area. Of course, this model, and others in the same range more than make up for this slight discrepancy with other features.
For example, the viewfinder and the layout of the external buttons express an interesting note to the design of the expensive models. They are a good and sturdy make, which implies durability and long lasting casing, and often have positive attributes by way of the additional features if the machine is sold as a kit. In these kits it is possible to find many useful items such as a rechargeable battery, software for the computer, and extra lens shades. There are models in this range that come with a memory card, although the E510 does not, so shopping around can be imperative.
With the viewfinder only being small, you would expect that the LCD image for the master controls either appears grainy or dark. However, there was a clear and bright image shown, and with easy navigation of the features the camera is a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate how quickly it can be up running. The amazing speed of the device is a good indicator of how the menu system works well with the supplementary features such as the Live View Mode, which can prove more useful for the novice to photography. In addition, the image stabilization works to prevent the blurry images that are often captured in different weather conditions, or simply in awkward areas.
There have been few complaints about the E510, as the machine is set out in a functional and intensely durable manner, with many of the drawbacks being minor and thus easy to overlook. For the price, this model reflects the high end price tag it comes with, and each dollar is well spent.
