The Olympus EVOLT E-510 digital SLR is a great camera to help you evolve as a photographer. Only Olympus digital SLRs are engineered to be 100-percent digital. Simply put, this means your pictures will have stunning edge-to-edge sharpness that can't be beat. Olympus' Live View LCD technology is a unique feature that enhances your picture-taking experience. Whatever life brings, whatever you're photographing, you'll capture colorful memories with the E-510's proven Dust Reduction System and powerful, 10-megapixel imager.
Your Life In Live View - Olympus innovated Live-View LCD screens on their digital SLRs to make your shooting experience better. Olympus trusts what their customers have told them and they've learned that Live View technology will enrich your photography experience in any situation, from any angle.
What You See Is What You Get - While you're shooting at the zoo on a sunny day you'll want to clearly see what's on your Live View screen. With the E-510, you can preview and review photos on a high-resolution, 2.5-inch HyperCrystal LCD. You'll see the screen with amazing clarity in bright sunlight and from angles up to 176 degrees.
Searching For Stability? - You're in a car. Or on a boat. Keeping the camera still is difficult. With the E-510's sensor-shift image stabilization, your pictures will come out clear. Inside, a gyro sensor tracks the image while the camera automatically adjusts for the motion. And the image stabilization mode can be activated to assist you in low light settings. Blurriness is minimized or even eliminated, and because it is in the body it works will all of the lenses, not just a few.
More Storage Options Than Granny's Attic - The EVOLT E-510 has two memory slots that hold Compact Flash Type I and Type II, Microdrive and xD picture cards. Use the dual slot design to transfer images you want to save from one card to another. Manage your memories better.
Images As Big As Life - Get sharp, high-resolution and high-quality photos regardless of the print size with the E-510's 10-megapixel Live-MOS imaging sensor.
No Dust, No Doubt About It - Don't let the elements stop you, even when it's windy and dusty. When most cameras get a speck of dust on their imager, problems ensue. Not with the E-510 and its proven Dust Reduction System. It eliminates dust for spotless photos that you don't need to touch up.
Olympus Zuiko Lenses Made For The Digital Age - Using the Olympus E-System, with the largest selection of lenses designed specifically for digital photography, you're sure to get your most memorable shots. Whether you're zooming on the kids, or snapping wide-angle wedding shots, your pristine Zuiko Digital lens is going to get the job done.
It is not always easy to use an optical viewfinder - in a crowd you can't see over the heads of those around you, and low angle close-ups can be hard to reach. With the E-510, you have another option - use the Live-View LCD screen to preview and review photos. And you'll see the screen with amazing clarity from almost any angle.
The high-resolution, 2.5-inch HyperCrystal LCD screen (230,000 pixels) means you can compose your shots easily, even outside in sunlight.
Advanced Image Stabilization keeps your images sharp even when the camera is moving. The E-510 uses Olympus' sensor-shift image stabilization technology to counter the effect of camera shake. The exclusive Supersonic Wave Drive motors provide two modes of accurate high-speed image stabilization. One mode provides blur-free photography for everyday situations like low-light settings. The other mode helps capture clear images even while panning during action shots. Olympus' Image Stabilization technology is built into the body of the E-510 so it works with every lens, unlike legacy film technologies built into the lenses.
Keep dust spots off your photos. The Olympus dust reduction system is an industry first and a proven technology. Every time you turn on the E-510, our Supersonic Wave Filter - located between the shutter and the image sensor - silently vibrates an amazing 35,000 times per second. Dust is shaken away. You can take full advantage of all the benefits of Olympus SLR cameras and change lenses anywhere without worrying about dust.
You'll see more details and you'll get stunning color in all your photos with the 10-megapixel Live-MOS image sensor. Create large prints, even after cropping.
