Small and appealing, the Olympus E-410 brings memories of days gone by, when SLRs were small, mechanical, and manual.
But the E-410 is capable of both full auto and manual, and its 10 megapixel Live MOS sensor and optical design are quite advanced. The E-410's 14-42mm lens is sharper than the average consumer digital SLR, and it's just a little smaller, too.
Its specially designed sensor is capable of delivering a live image to the Olympus E-410's 2.5 inch LCD. Called Live View, this mode simulates what you experience with a digicam, but with a few catches along the way. The E-410 unfortunately lacks the sensor-shift image stabilization of the Olympus E-510, and its grip doesn't well support accessories or long lenses.
There's no question that the Olympus E-410 is a thought provoking camera, not just because it slips into a coat pocket about as well as any prosumer digital camera. See our full review of the Olympus EVOLT E-410 for more.
