Olympus E420 kit

We’re pleased to present a short video tour of the Olympus E-420. This demonstrates the E-420’s design, controls, screen and Live View systems.

There’s no need to download any new software – just press the play button in the middle of the screen below and wait for the video to start; you may need to press the button twice. The quality and any delay before playing may vary depending on your internet connection.

Good points
Small and light without compromising comfort.
Very effective anti-dust system.
Live View with contrast AF and face detection.
Quick handling and broad customisation.

Bad points
Very limited anti-shake options.
Small viewfinder with basic 3-point AF.
Body may be too small for bigger hands.
E-520 a tempting alternative with anti-shake.

(compared to 2008 budget DSLRs)
