Olympus has extended its old-school E-500 snapper series, with the creation of another 10-megapixel digital SLR (DSLR) model.

Olympus' E-520 is its latest 10-megapixel camera

The E-520 sports a sizeable 2.7in LCD screen which is designed to provide a broad colour gamut and better viewing in extreme lighting conditions, Olympus claimed. The screen is already part of of several Olympus cameras, including the E-420 DSLR and Stylus 850 compact camera.

Face-detection is also included to help pick out and frame your friends in each image – although this feature is becoming increasingly common, even with cheap compact cameras. A dust-reduction system on the E-520 should ensure all your snaps are clear and crisp.

The camera’s highest ISO sensitivity is a decent 1600 and the ability to shoot at up to 3.5 frames per second should mean you don’t miss, say, any of the kids’ goals at football next Sunday. There are also 32 pre-set scene modes to choose from if you’re new to DSLR snapping, including night mode and children.

Storage options include Compact Flash and xD Picture Card, and a USB 2.0 port’s built into the camera’s body for moving files onto your PC.

Olympus’ E-520 will be available next month at a body-only price of £480 (€604/$935).
