Olympus E-400 Review - Olympus E-400 Review

”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. The following pages consist of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure. For those with a dial-up connection, please be patient while the pages download.”


Taken with the 14-42mm lens at its widest angle, the image is still sharp right out to the edges, and fantastically detailed.


This is a 100% crop from the above image, shot in RAW mode and converted in Adobe Camera RAW and then slightly sharpened using Unsharp Mask, a common professional workflow. The level of detail is outstanding; this compressed JPEG really doesn’t do it justice.


In sRGB natural colour mode, colour reproduction is pretty much flawless.


The high-contrast monochrome mode is ideal for arty Gothy shots like this. O I’m so alone nobody knows my pain etc.
