Pros: Portability without sacrificing the reflex system, essential in use, classic line

Cons: Considering the price at which it is located today (2021) I would say no one

Opinion: Taken the e-420 for a couple of years. The Olympus e-4xx system (the 400 has a kodak ccd sensor, the later a Panasonic cmos), while being replaced by the mirrorless m4/3 (which offers more: a fleet of optics in quantity and quality 'much higher, on-camera stabilization,.. and many other things ..), could still interest someone today. Those who want to spend very little and just can't give up the mirror. As a second camera to take on vacation, where photography is not the main purpose, or even in long journeys, where you need to be light. The body alone weighs less than 400g and together with the 2 kit lenses there is in a really small handbag. "Daylight backpackers", so I read on an American site, that is, for those who travel and shoot in daylight. In addition to the 2 kits (14-42 and 40-150) there is also a fixed 25mm brightness f/2.8 pancake: with this it becomes a compact. I find the ergonomics excellent and I found the "plush" shot, very well cushioned, of the flagship e-1. The dynamic range is relatively small, but well exploitable thanks to a really precise and accurate spot light meter. The viewfinder is small, being used to that of film SLR and nikon d700, but it is bright and usable without any problem. The central af point is reliable, definitely at least for simple shots. The commands are few but everything is customizable, so you no longer have to enter the menu'. The battery as they have already said lasts forever. After about 500 shots in 2 months I resumed it after another 4 months and it was still over half a charge. The baked jpgs did not convince me and then I used it in raw. Compared to the default values of acr I reduced exposure and contrast and increased brightness. Even in raw there is some valid instructions for the rendering of the color, on which Olympus is a guarantee and in fact even so the colors do not leave something to be desired. They are distinguished from those, equally pleasant, of the Nikon. The level of detail is good and well softened by a rather heavy aa filter.. it's a matter of taste.. however, it is better to avoid contrast masks or sharpening, because with these reduced sensors it takes little to create visible artifacts. In any case, the machine does its duty more than excellently.

Pros: Double slot, internal stabilization, available commands, lightness, 64 iso, battery life (eternal Parthian).

Cons: Lcd not particularly powerful, live view a bit 'dated compared to competitors in the same period, up to 1600 ISO.

Opinion: I heard defame E420 in many ways but, honestly who has defamed her never found a true feeling. The first consideration is that we are talking about an SLR "entry level" by more than affordable price. Combined with the 14-42 3.5 / 5.6 has always given me great shots even in light situations quite critical. The body has excellent ergonomics and are not totally agree on the slowness. Definitely suffer a little 'longer focal lengths of 40-150 but also in this case is defended more than well it is an "entry level". My opinion, as the investment is definitely positive.

Pros: Dual memory card slots, enough strong, lightweight, practical, Live view

Cons: Slow, Very economic, supplied lens, very little screen, speed image storage (mostly on support XD) very slow

Opinion: A camera for use very amateur, but I have to say that I have always followed for 3 years in all my travels and I've never been disappointed, of course I was a beginner and it was my first SLR but after I can safely say that if I come back to purchase it again! AF had many faults as well as the very slow shutter speed was not an appropriate way to share photographs or sports, but he knew to give a lot of satisfaction (at least the ones I could not wait since the beginning). I left my heart with this camera because it was a fedelisssima traveling companion in the most beautiful moments of my life. He had a lot of comfort from the top-level SLR (such as the double memory card slot), had the accelerometer, and was one of the first entry-level SLR to use the Live View also had a lot of scene modes that worked pretty well for me that I was a beginner and I did not dimistichezza with manual controls, I have been very helpful. So a macchina with many flaws but with a soul! Robust enough for the various occasions. My left me after three years of use and about 20,000 photographs as suddenly goes off and AF no longer worked. Brought into service but after two months the same problem (I died at Porto Venere in a lovely place), out of warranty, I decided to let her go! In short, a good car for those who should start and should not spend so much money.
