Olympus delivers the Evolt E620 12.3MP digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera, number 8 in our top ten digital SLR cameras to bring back that free-style experimenting and the magical feeling of being inspired by our own art.

The easy-to-use Art Filters and Multiple Exposures (built right into the camera) are fun for photographers–whether you’ve been shooting for years or picked up your first digital camera today. Enjoy capturing creative images on the go–without being tethered to a computer and editing software! Now it is possible to easily customize your images so they’re worthy of posting on the gallery wall (or at least the family fridge).

The E-620′s freedom of expression is matched by its freedom of mobility. First, the camera travels with you to more places, thanks to its compact size and light 18.9-ounce body. Second, as the world’s smallest DSLR with in-body Image Stabilization, the E-620 adjusts when your body moves to remove blur caused by camera shake (with any lens attached). Finally, add Live View shooting with a swivel 2.7-inch HyperCrystal LCD that frees you to cover subjects from a range of angles, and this 12.3-megapixel DSLR seamlessly combines motions with emotions–proof that Olympus lets you capture it all.

These are some of the most relevant technical details:

  • 12.3-megapixel Live MOS sensor for photo-quality, poster-size prints
  • Lightweight ergonomic design; kit includes 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Zuiko lens
  • TruePic III for superior image quality in all lighting situations; Supersonic Wave Drive (in-body sensor shift)
  • 2.7-inch HyperCrystal III Swivel LCD; Smooth Live View allows you to change the frame rate of the Live View display
  • Stores images to Compact Flash (Type I and II), Microdrive, xD Picture card (not included)

These are the reviews from some customers:

I’ve had an E-620 for about a month, and with each photo I’m finding more to like about it.

Any camera represents a series of compromises as the manufacturer trades weight vs. features vs. cost vs. ergonomics vs. image quality. Any purchase decision should be based on how those particular trade-offs jibe with the intended use. None of the name-brand cameras in this price range that I’ve looked at are bad. But, for me and for the type of photography I do now, the E-620 is the closest fit.” – Robert Bell

I have had the E-620 for about a week and i moved from a E-510. E-510 was my first DSLR and using that over the years i have been very satisfied and happy with the 510 especially due to the in body image stabilization and lens line-up. Liveview was also a plus over competitors but i never really used it unless it was really dark or i needed to manual focus.” – Waqas Mustafeet
