New Release from Olympus: The E-520 DSLR
With their claim of an in-body image stabilizer for any lens, Olympus has put their best foot forward announcing the new Olympus E520 DSLR. The new camera boasts advanced Image Stabilization technology such as Supersonic Wave Drive, which provides blur-free images with any one of 30 digital camera lenses, and Autofocus Live View, which brings a sharp image to the LCD by HyperCrystal II. Another feature (to which I am particularly drawn) is Perfect Shot Preview, which enables the photographer to preview and select effects of exposure compensation and white balance adjustment.
From John Knaur, senior marketing manager, DSLR Division, Olympus Imaging America Inc.
"Beyond a successor, the Olympus E-520 features an array of new technologies that help photo hobbyists and serious digital photographers take remarkable images. Its image stabilization system now lets photographers pan while holding the portable camera vertically—perfect for capturing everything from a sprinter breaking from the pack to the bride and groom walking down the aisle."
The Olympus E-520 DSLR becomes available in July 2008, at a retail price of $599.99 USD, or as a bundle offer with the ED 14-42mm f3.5/5.6 Zuiko Digital Zoom Lens for $699.99. Click here for more information.
