24th February 2009, 07:14 AM
The E-620 has been announced, it looks very interesting, combining a small body size with IS and a tilt LCD screen. The small body size dictates the use of the smaller BLS-1 battery. It has the ability for in camera double exposures and to quote the blurb :

"The new camera’s high-performance 12.3-megapixel Live MOS image sensor delivers excellent dynamic range, accurate color fidelity, and a state-of-the-art amplifier circuit to reduce noise and capture fine image details in both highlight and shadow areas."

Full details and pictures can be found on the dpreview site;


It will be very interesting to read what all of you wonderful forum members think of it.

Apologies to everyone for being so quiet over the last few months

Chris, we're off to Focus on Imaging, to meet with Olympus and have a special Safari Group members' hands on session with the E-620... I think this is going to be the most popular DSLR in Olympus' history...

This is the HOMERUN camera we've all been waiting for! *chr

We'll be bringing a Special Hands-on Safari Group report (http://www.ukphotosafari.org/ukpsg-reports/) this evening.

Kind Regards
