Photography BLOG have reviewed the world’s smallest and lightest 10 megapixel Digital SLR, the E-400, it’s based on the 4/3rds Standard, and introduced two new smaller lenses: a Zuiko Digital 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 ED and a Zuiko Digital 40-150mm 1:4-5.6 ED. The camera features a 2.5″ screen with 215,000 pixels, up to 3fps with a five image RAW buffer in burst mode shooting, anti-dust sensor, XD and CF memory card slots, 95% frame coverage, 0.92x magnification, ISO100 – 1600, measures 129.5mm (W) x 91mm (H) x 53mm (D) and weighs 380g (body only). The camera is currently only available in Europe and Asia. The E-400 with twin kit lens is available for around £750.
“It is also worth noting that the 10MP 4:3 ratio CCD size doubles the focal length of all its lenses (to 35mm equivalent) which is especially useful for shooting subject matter that is hard to get close to, like wildlife or sports. The Olympus E-400 delivers a pleasing user experience with straightforward handling that will appeal to beginners and enthusiasts alike.”
