Steve Sanders tries out Olympus' replacement for the D-490Z...
The fine folks over at Steve's Digicams have posted the web's first review of Olympus' Camedia D-510 Zoom digital camera, a camera that was first announced back on May 8th, and is alternately known in Europe and Japan as the Camedia C-200ZOOM. For the US market, the D-510Z is a replacement for the D-490Z model which has long been popular - amongst other reasons for the fact that it looks more like a film camera than a computer peripheral...
The D-510Z is very similar to the previous camera, but somewhat smaller/lighter, and with USB Mass Storage Class compliance and a different filter pattern on the image sensor. Steve concludes:
"I see Olympus selling a ton of these cameras, they're reasonably priced, loaded with features, produce excellent picures, small enough to slip into your pants pocket and most important - they're incredibly easy to operate."
