Olympus brings tiny DSLR into focus
More portable design?
Olympus has launched what it’s claimed is the world’s smallest digital SLR camera with image stabilisation built into the camera body rather than the lens.
Olympus' E-620: measures merely 130 x 94 x 60mm
The 12.3Mp E-620 measures 130 x 94 x 60mm and is equipped with a 2.7in tilting/swivelling LCD display. A selection of “Art Filters”, which include "high-grain black" and "high-saturation pop art" are also included.
Viewing on-screen images should never be a problem
The camera’s illuminated buttons will help you find the correct dial when snapping in the dark, while 29 pre-set image modes and face detection should make your subjects and their surroundings crystal clear. Dust reduction also helps keep unwanted specs at bay.
Anti-shake and filters are included
Olympus’ E-620 will be available in May for $700 (£480/€545), a price that includes a shoulder strap, battery pack, USB cable and 14-42mm lens. ®
