Olympus E-510 gallery
The following images were taken with the Olympus E-510 using the Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 lens. The E-510 was set SHQ quality, Auto White Balance, Digital ESP Metering and its default Natural Picture Mode; Noise Reduction and the Noise Filter were set to their default On and Standard settings. The individual exposure mode, file sizes, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO and lens focal length are listed for each image.
The crops are taken from the original files, reproduced at 100% and saved in Adobe Photoshop CS2 as JPEGs with the default Very High quality preset, while the resized images were made in Photoshop CS2 and saved with the default High quality preset. The three crops are typically taken from far left, central and far right portions of each image.
Note: several photos below were taken in the same locations as those in our E-410 Gallery. Check the page from that review to directly compare the E-510’s output against the E-410. Note the E-410 was set to its default Vivid Picture Mode, whereas the E-510 here was set to its default Natural Picture Mode.
