Having spent several days with a prototype sample, I must say that Olympus's new EVOLT E-500 has been a pleasant surprise. It was September, 2004 that Olympus announced their first SLR aimed at consumers, the EVOLT E-300. If you're interested in a detailed feature-by-feature comparison of the Olympus E500 with a number of its competitors, see the SLR comparison table we've prepared for that purpose. Whether a lot of the enhancements really matter or not will have to wait until we get a full review unit, because what we have here is not ready to have its image quality tested. The grip isn't terribly deep, but it's wide enough that it offers a good long surface area to wrap your fingers around. My index finger rests perfectly on the shutter button, without having to twist and contort.
Only two dials grace the Olympus E-500 (with the exception of the diopter correction dial).
The rest of the controls are buttons, and I have no complaints about their operation or placement. Getting back to the physical form of the Olympus E-500 for a moment, the door covering the dual-card slot is worth mention.
I was also happy to see an orange spring-loaded retaining hook holding the battery in place behind the battery door, so the expensive lithium ion battery doesn't fall free when the door is opened. With the major competition sporting between five and seven AF points at this price range, I am a little disappointed that the Olympus E-500 has only three. Auto focus seems to be reasonably fast, but I'll have to wait until we get our final test unit to comment on performance, including shutter lag and shot-to-shot timing.
While we're here in the viewfinder, I have to confess that I'm not crazy about the exposure information being clustered on the right side of the viewfinder window. When I first sat down to start shooting real life with my E-500 prototype, I naturally pointed the camera at my family. Much like an Olympus digicam, the EVOLT E-500 has a wide selection of Scene modes for common shooting situations.
In addition to Black and White and Sepia, Olympus has added new filter and tint modes to the Black and White shooting option. Three color settings allow the user to select the type of color output they want, a common strategy among consumer SLR manufacturers. Olympus is proud of the fact that they have the largest selection of digital-specific lenses on the market, and four more have been added at the E-500's announcement.
While Olympus does indeed have more lenses, a great many of them are very expensive, built as they were for the professional using an Olympus E-1. The kit lens is a 14-45mm lens, which is equivalent to a 28 - 90mm lens on a 35mm camera, due to the 2x multiplication factor that must be applied.
Concurrent with the E-500 announcement, Olympus introduced four new lenses, two that are intended for pros with a price tag to match, and two that are more in line with consumer needs and price points. While it was bold, the physical design of the original EVOLT E-300 didn't do justice to the legitimate technology that lay inside. It should come as a surprise to no one that a majority of consumers now use a smartphone as their primary digital camera.
Terminology within the digital photography market can be ambiguous, especially when the industry has not yet standardized naming conventions. At this time, CILCs are primarily separated from DSLRs based on the exclusion of a mirror box, a smaller size, and a lighter weight.
According to InfoTrends’ 2012 report entitled Digital Imaging and Professional Photographers, the vast majority of pro photographers currently own DSLRs.
As part of the InfoTrends’ Digital Photography Trends service, we keep a close eye on new camera introductions. Smart cameras — Nikon and Samsung introduced “smart cameras” — Nikon with their Coolpix S800c and Samsung with the Galaxy cameras, both running the Android operating system coupled with built-in Wi-Fi.
Larger image sensors — One way that digital camera manufacturers areA  differentiating themselves from their smartphone competition is with larger image sensors. In September 2011, DSLR powerhouse Nikon entered the compact interchangeable lens camera (CILC) market with its 1 Series lineup.
In October 2011, Nikon’s DSLR camera factory in Thailand was devastated by flood waters, which caused the complete shutdown of its entry-level and mid-range DSLR production linesA right before the critical holiday season.
October 6, 2011: Operations suspended at Nikon Thailand Corporation (NTC) due to the fact that the factory was submerged under 2 meters of flood waters.
November 30, 2011: Nikon restarted partial deliveries of DSLR cameras and interchangeable lenses thanks to alternative production by Thai partner factories.
January 3, 2012: Partial operations resumed at NTC, as Nikon had forecasted would happenA back in November. January to March 2012: NTC ramped up its camera production, adding to finished goods produced by partner factories.
By the end of March, the combined production capacity of NTC and partner factories had reached normal production levels. Nikon Coolpix L120 has a 14.1 megapixel super zoom camera, with 21x optical zoom lens and a lever for smooth zooming, takes images by preventing noise using sensors, can record videos at 720p HD with stereo sound and also has a 3-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 921,000 dots. Nikon Cool Pix P500 has a 12.1 mega pixel camera with latest EXPEED C 2 dual image processor.
This camera also has 12.1 mega pixel camera with EXPEED C2 image processor and has CMOS sensor which enables capturing of images with less noise. Nikon D300S is a digital SLR camera with EXPEED image processor and a 12.3 mega pixel camera with DX format CMOS sensor.
A small and cheapest digital camera which has 14 mega pixel camera with CCD image sensor, 5x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom with HD recording. Nikon cool pix s8100 belongs to S series cameras which have a resolution of 12.1 mega pixel and uses CMOS sensors while shooting the images.

I have enjoyed shooting with it at least as much as my favorite digital SLR cameras, and that is saying something. I was glad to see them back in the market with a consumer SLR, and I found that though it was an odd shape that remained difficult to accept, I liked quite a bit about the original EVOLT. I loved the images, but not the design; and this metering problem made the camera difficult to trust (I think this has been addressed with a recent firmware fix, but we have not had time to test it).
The list of new items includes a 2.5 inch HyperCrystal LCD, dual media card slots (xD and CF), an auto pop-up flash (the E-300's was manual), a 49 point ESP light meter, playback red-eye reduction, and a few more exposure and color options. But I can talk about a few of the enhancements, and what it's like to shoot with the E-500.


It has the most balanced feel of any digicam since the Nikon D70 hit the scene two years ago. I especially like how easy it is to reach the power switch with that same index finger while maintaining a right handed grip on the camera. The Mode dial has a look of quality, and the main command dial reminds me of the dial on the back of the EOS 20D: loose enough that its easy to turn, but sure in its detents. The traditional five left of the LCD serve the right purposes, operating the menu, flash, and playback functions.
It closes reasonably well with a plastic hook mechanism, and swings to lock open, much like the E-300's door. They're horizontally arranged, and the user can select any one of the three or let the camera choose to focus on the nearest object. It just seems unnatural to have to look that far off to the right to see what's going on with the camera; perhaps if the camera had a higher eyepoint, but I find myself pressing my glasses way up against the viewfinder to see what's going on. The Mode dial covers the basic Portrait, Landscape, Macro, Sports, and Night Portrait modes, but the Scene setting opens up even more. Much as you can on the Rebel XT and EOS 20D, you can set modes that emulate color filters used in traditional film-based black and white photography, useful for darkening skies, for example. Film and digicam manufacturers have been amping the color on our images for so long that when a digital SLR comes along and gives us true color, we assume something's wrong; the color seems so dull. As I mentioned earlier in this review, Olympus often sets trends in photography, and they were apparently right when they said it would be better to deliver more light straight at the sensor instead of continuing to use existing 35mm lenses. Olympus now says they will have a total of 15 digital-specific Zuiko lenses available come late March 2006.
Though they offer a lens that will take you out to a 14mm equivalent, it costs around $2,600, too much for consumers. The 18-180 will probably make a good vacation lens, with a 36-360mm equivalent measurement.
The Olympus E-500 brings the company back to basics, with a time-tested design whose familiarity should attract more users. For some, their smartphone might be the only camera they own “or perhaps even the only camera they have ever owned (see recent InfoBlog here).
For example, consider the DILC (digital interchangeable lens camera) market and its subcategories. Nevertheless, product definitions are still undergoing changes and the lines are blurring all the time. 2012 has already seen a good number of new cameras, 144 to be exact, and the year is only three-quarters through. This marks the first real effort to create and deliver cameras that act like our smartphones.
The question at that time was, “When would Canon respond?” Well, the other shoe has finally dropped, and Canon has announced its much-anticipated EOS M camera.
Other features include an 18 MP APS-C size CMOS sensor, a 3-inch LCD touch screen, and high ISO sensitivity in both still and video modes (25600 and 12800,A  respectively).
The flood came at a critical time of the year, when all camera manufacturers were gearing up for the all-important holiday season and beginning production ramp up of soon-to-be announced cameras. Photography can be done by anyone and it doesn’t has any age restrictions, all you need is a skill and a passion towards photography to become the best part time photographer or full time.
Other highlights include over 20 scene modes, 1cm macro mode, AA battery power, continuous mode that shoots up to 20 frames at 15fps, albeit at reduced resolution. With the wide angle (36 x) zoom integrated with this camera you have take wide photos like hill stations, the clouds, oceans and some interesting places.
This stylish camera weighs about 214 g and perfect for carrying to a travelling photographer and it has 3-inch TFT LCD monitor with a resolution of 921000 pixels. Contains a 3-inch low temperature polysilicon TFT LCD with a resolution of 921000 dot pixels with the help of compact flash card type I, SD, SDHC cards. It has a 2.7 inch TFT LCD with 35 mm equivalent focal length of 26 – 130 mm and a screen resolution of  230,000 dots. Images may not be copied, downloaded, or used in any way without the expressed, written permission of the photographer.
I've so far only tried an early pre-release camera, but from my experience thus far, I think the E-500 is going to make a lot of people very happy. Further putting me off were all the claims the company was making about how much smaller the EVOLT was than competing designs. No more odd designs to overlook, no more unique optics for no apparent reason, no more long, heavy body that forces you into vertical shooting mode by virtue of its sheer weight. Unlike the E-300, the Olympus E-500's grip is more conventionally cut, with a contoured trapezoidal shape, whereas the E-300 was a big round curve with a raised ridge for added traction. We recorded 276 menu screens on the Olympus E-500, so don't let the simple array of buttons make you think this is a camera with limited capability. One of the three AF dots lights red when an AF point is chosen and focus has been achieved.
Landscape and Portrait, Children, High key, Low key, and Candle modes are among the interesting offerings that are not often seen on digital SLR cameras. Filters include Yellow to darken skies, Orange to enhance sunset shots, Red to give dramatic contrast in skies, and Green to improve contrast in skin tones and foliage. The human mind remembers colors more vividly than the eye sees them, so film companies like Kodak learned long ago to give our minds what they want. Most manufacturers have now come out with digital-specific lenses to better direct more of the light right to the sensor by tightening the image circle created by the lens. Hopefully that will include a more healthy selection of prime (non-zoom) and affordable zoom lenses, both wide angle and telephoto. It has almost all the features I'd look for in a digital SLR, including a high enough resolution to stave off any feeling of obsolescence for the next year or so, and a number of modes to assist and enhance a user's photography as they learn (or re-learn) the craft. Here's hoping that the shipping version exceeds the abilities of the E-300 as is expected, because everything else about the camera just seems right.
Interchangeable Lens Camera Market Study, it seems that consumers generally prefer the term “Digital interchangeable lens camera (DILC)” to describe these cameras. However, with compact camera sales waning, Best Buy has seen its influence on the market diminish, as consumers and vendors focus on more profitable digital interchangeable lens camera sales (DILCs). DILC is an umbrella term that incorporates all cameras with interchangeable lenses, but it can be further divided into two major categories–digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras and compact interchangeable lens cameras (CILCs).
To this point, products like Panasonic’s Lumix GH3 do not contain a mirror box but are roughly the same size and weight of a traditional DSLR. At the same time, however, the share of professional photographers who reported owning CILCs more than quadrupled year-over-year, rising from just 11% in 2011 to over 49% in 2012.


SLRs are also getting image sensor improvements, with both Canon and Nikon introducing new models featuring a larger, full-size image sensor at price points that are well under those of previous full-frame SLR’s. This camera weighs about 464g which is more easy to carry along with you.It has an 3-inch TFT LCD display screen which can be tilted upwards and downwards.
As all the dslr cameras this camera is also powered by EXPEED C2 image processor with 3-inch TFT LCD of resolution 921,000 dot pixels. Technically, they were right, and their porroprism finder did flatten the top to enable that cool dual-flash trick. It varies depending on the lens attached, of course, but with the 14-45mm kit lens attached, the Olympus E-500 is wonderful to hold and shoot. The butt of the grip rests perfectly in my palm, and the pads of all four fingers find a home on the inside of the grip, if only just. This switch actuates much like the switch on the E-300 and the Canon Digital Rebel models, jutting out from underneath the mode dial, but it's far better placed on the Olympus E-500. The five way nav has dual functions, including White balance, AF, ISO, Metering mode, and OK button. Though I haven't explored every feature, I found the menu relatively navigable as Olympus menus go. Also missing from the E-300 but present on the E-500 are separate Full Auto and Program modes. For the record, wide angle is the biggest problem for modern consumer SLRs and is not unique to the Olympus line. No other manufacturer offers a sensor that cleans itself every time you power it on, and few digital SLR currently on the market have a screen this big and beautiful. While Best Buy has sold DILCs, the selection was limited, merchandising was lacking, lens selection was limited and locked away behind glass, and in-store personnel were not trained to answer probing technical questions. Over time, InfoTrends believes that the distinction between CILCs and DSLRs will disappear, and interchangeable lens cameras will simply be referred to as DILCs. These camera vendors are hoping that these new and improved sensors will resonate with consumers, and they should be a popular choice for enthusiast photographers that want higher resolution and better low-light capability at a lower price. Includes over various scene modes, best shot selector, motion detector, blink detection technology, continuous shoot mode supporting all the image formats and can shoot HD videos at 1920×1080 resolution. Includes  a zoom lens of 18mm – 200mm, 3500Fx Auto Focus module, 15 cross type sensors, this camera has special recognition system which automatically detect the necessary settings in any situation and surrounding. It includes various scene modes such as snow, portrait, sports, fireworks and auto functioning like red eye fix, blink warning, face priority auto focus, smile timer and skin softening.
It can take 180 frames with a single charge of battery and has a resolution of 3-inch TFT LCD touch screen display with 460,000 dot pixels. But the E-300 didn't seem smaller; and I've never had a problem with pentaprisms for all these years, so why were porroprisms better? On top, behind the shutter is the EV button On the front, Olympus has emulated the easier position of the lens release button as seen on competing cameras from Nikon and Canon, instead of the rather distant and small button found on the E-300. More than normal, they've used full and sometimes multiple words to describe options, an excellent approach.
Olympus's inclusion of xD card compatibility makes perfect sense, offering existing Olympus owners the option of using their xD cards in their new digital SLR. The default setting is Vibrant, but you can set the camera to Natural and Muted if you like.
This led Jessops to become the largest chain of camera specialty retailers with more than 200 stores across the country. The cameras in this category would then compete head-to-head in terms of features, functionality, and price.
If these types of cameras sell well, it won’t be long until other vendors introduce similar cameras to compete.
Current Canon DSLR owners will be happy to know that a $199 mount adapter will allow the full line of Canon’s EF and EF-S lens to be used with the new camera. Capable of taking 220 pictures or record 1h 20 min of 1080p videos at a single charge, the Li-on rechargeable battery EN-EL5 has a good backup too and most of the photographers use this camera. You can easily transfer the photos to a PC or laptop using a high speed transferring USB port, also capable of connecting it to TV using mini HDMI connector. The pop-up flash could be used simultaneously with an external flash to serve as fill light. If it ends up taking images at least as nice as its predecessor--without the Digital ESP metering bug--Olympus is sure to have a winner on its hands.
This new placement makes it a one-motion operation to press this button and begin rotating the lens. Offering CF cards similarly allows E-300 and E-1 owners to continue using their existing stock of cards. It was like we had little prints we could see right away, instead of a small, slightly washed out image like we're used to seeing from a great many cameras. Natural and Muted will be easier to modify later in programs like Photoshop, so experienced computer photo tweakers will want to use these settings, but consumers will probably be more happy with Vibrant mode (we'll see when we test the real deal). In 2002, ABN AMRO acquired the company and 2 years later Jessops went public on the London Stock Exchange.
Some interesting features are this camera has 19 preset scene modes like museum, fireworks show, back lighting, and continuous shoot mode up to 1.2 frames per second. It wasn't until after I got back to the promotional materials that I remembered how Olympus reps had boasted about the quality of this LCD. Most prospective E-500 buyers needn't even bother looking at those, but I suppose it's nice to know that they're there if you need them.
A In 2007, just ahead of the Global Financial Crisis, Jessops faced financial trouble and entered into a period of restructuring and negotiations with its creditors.
They're calling it a HyperCrystal LCD, and it appears to not only deliver a vibrant image around the breakfast table, with a 160 degree viewing angle, but it also performs well out in direct sunlight. Much of the weight seemed to be left of the lens, and the camera wanted to twist out of the right hand. There was also a critical metering flaw that we found, where a bright object at the center of the frame would trick even the normally excellent Olympus Digital ESP mode into underexposing the image.
