Phil Askey gets hands-on with the PAL version of Olympus' E-10 successor...
Our friends at the Digital Photography Review website have now posted their full review of the Olympus Camedia E-20P digital camera, the European equivalent of the US E-20N model. (The only real difference between the two being a choice of NTSC or PAL video output connectivity) Phil concludes:
"Overall the E-20 is a camera of hot and cold. From an image quality point of view it's very balanced, with good resolution and a neutral approach to tonal and colour balance (which would better suit a professional or semiprofessional photographer). There's the superbly built and designed body, studio flash capability (which works well) a mechanically linked zoom control and a vast array of manual controls. For more of Phil's opinion, be sure to read the review in its entirity.

However, on the other side there are just too many things which I found frustrating about the E-10 which simply haven't been addressed. Many of them I consider to be fairly straightforward fixes or changes which, for a camera aimed at professional photographers, are essential."
