It's reasonably fast for a cheap DSLR - on average it was actually the fastest to process and display a preview image on its 2.7in screen, and sports snappers will appreciate the continuous mode, which clocked it at just over 3.5fps and carried on firing for 20 images.

Verdict

Unfortunately, the side effect of the E-450's neat styling is comfort. The E-450 barely offers enough grip on the right hand side. Instead of nestling the camera in the palm of your hand, you have to pinch it between your thumb and your middle finger, which is uncomfortable. The image quality is middling rather than overwhelming however, the E-450 has some definite plus points and the Olympus store price has it pegged as the cheapest cameras on test here. ®
