Olympus E-510 Digital SLR - Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation

Olympus E-510 Digital SLR


Our Score:


A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, 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 to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.


This next sequence of shots was taken in continuous mode at 3fps.


These flowers would look a lot better with a bit of sunshine.


The sensor copes well with high contrast, but even the fiddler looks sick of the weather.

Having this camera for nearly one year have to say your review is spot-on.

E-510 is a beautiful camera which does"Almost" what ever you want .

Pictures sometimes under exposed and auto focus a bit slow but E-510 is a great camera and defently recomended

Its a bit misleading listing this review as 2011 - when its a 2007 camera...you should mention that the review has been updated - as I assume you aren't reviewing it 4yrs late..
