      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.

      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.

          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

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

            This Connection is Untrusted



            You have asked Firefox to connect
            securely to order.ibood.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

            Normally, when you try to connect securely,
            sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are
            going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.




            What Should I Do?


            If you usually connect to
            this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is
            trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.


            Technical Details


            order.ibood.com uses an invalid security certificate.

            The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.

            (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)


            It sounds like a site to avoid

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

                    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

                          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.
                          Cheers

                            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..

                              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.
