Master video reviewer Gordon Laing of CameraLabs.com is at it again – this time reviewing the Olympus E-510 EVOLT Digital SLR. The E-510 is the successor to the E-500 and has many features including anti-dust, built in anti-shake that works with any lens and live view so you can compose your images on the LCD screen.

The E-510 has a more SLR like look than its near relative, the E-410. You’ll find it more comfortable especially when using bigger, heavier lenses. After a brief introduction, Gordon gives a demonstration showing you the menu system and live view. Unfortunately using auto focus with live view is a little time consuming – taking a couple of seconds for each photo. The E-510 has excellent image stabilization and Gordon gives an impressive demo of it in action.
Overall, the Olympus E-510 EVOLT Digital SLR is one of the most feature packed digital SLR‘s to date with 10 megapixel resolution, excellent kit lens, anti-dust, anti-shake, live view and more. Currently the Olympus E-510 sells for around $809. For more in depth reviews and sample photos, see below:
