A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.

1/100th, f6.3, ISO 100

At the lowest ISO setting the image is completely noise-free and also devoid of compression artefacts. You can clearly see the grain in the wood of this old door.

----

1/60th, f7.1, ISO 200

At the 200 ISO setting the image is completely noise-free and also devoid of compression artefacts. You can clearly see the grain in the wood of this old door.

----

1/200th, f9.0 ISO 400

At the 400 ISO setting the image is completely noise-free and also…hang on, this sounds familiar.

----

1/320th, f10, ISO 800

At the lowest ISO setting the image is completely noise-free and…no, wait, I think I can see a tiny hint of colour speckling in the mid-tones. Maybe.

-----

1/500th, f11.0 ISO 1600

At the highest ISO setting there is a faint fuzz of image noise across the whole image, but the image is quite printable. I’ve seen far worse than this from other cameras at 400 ISO.

I'm on the lookout for a cheap DSLR and the E-400 is high on my shortlist between the Nikon D40, Canon 350D and Pentax K100D. I want something quite small, and I think the others are quite big. Can someone who's owned an Olympus camera for a few years, particularly the E-400 give some feeback on its reliability. Are Olympus cameras reliable..
