Anyone thinking of buying a E600

I got an email this morning that iBood are selling them for 389.95 complete with 14-42 lens

http://www.ibood.com/uk/en/

Apparently it's a 1 day offer.

Hope it helps somebody

The E-600 does exist - it's a feature-reduced version of the E-620, but it's only produced in limited numbers as 'exclusives' for big store chains. It's not really different enough, or common enough to have its own forum, so I will amend the E-620 title to include the E-600.

Basically the hardware is identical to an E-620, but there are fewer Art Filter modes, no multiple exposure mode, and nor are the buttons back-lit like the E-620.

Ian

PS I don't think the E-600 is eligible for the current free spare battery and power grip promotion that the E-620 is.

Re: Anyone thinking of buying a E600

IMO At the price it's offered at I think it's a massively good value camera as an introduction to the e-System. For many the missing feaures will be no issue at all

Regards
Andy

Re: Anyone thinking of buying a E600

Just for fun I decided to look see what the delivery quoted was and got this response from my browser

Normally, when you try to connect securely,

It sounds like a site to avoid

Re: Anyone thinking of buying a E600

I should have read teh thread in some more detail.

The comments re this website are correct

The deal is out there for just 10.00 more in reputable shops and at that price I think it IS a good deal

regards
Andy

Very odd Firefox does not like the certificate, IE8 says that it is issued by Globalsign Domain Validation CA and is OK.

Take a look here

Re: Anyone thinking of buying a E600

I've used the site before and they have been fine. I think it's just a software bug problem to be honest.

I just thought that if anyone wanted a new camera that it would be a good deal. I don't get anything from it. Just trying to be helpful.

Re: Anyone thinking of buying a E600

Dohhh....and I bought mine from Currys last week for 399.99 with single kit lens and thought that was a good deal!

So are Olympus clearing the shelves for a new model?

Re: Anyone thinking of buying a E600

I could be very tempted to pick up an E600 as a carry around camera for those times I don't want to lug my E30 and lenses around. The only thing putting me off is the fact that Adobe Camera Raw/Lightroom doesn't currently handle E600 raw files, even though they are the same as the E620s. Given the E600 is an Olympus special, ie not sold in all markets or even by all vendors, I'm not sure the Adobe will add it to the supported list: they probably will but I want to be certain before I part with my cash.

Re: Anyone thinking of buying a E600

I'm using my E600 with Ligtroom 2.5 by changing the model number in the ORF EXIF data from E600 to E620, LR will then import them normally. See my posting on the E620/600 forum if you're interested:

http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=8351

It's not perfect but it work's and it's all I have until Adobe update LR..

Re: Anyone thinking of buying a E600

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately I use a Mac so this won't work for me. I'll have to do some research to see if there is something similar for the Mac.
