Olympus E-400 Japan Gallery

Oct 29, 2006 at 18:40 GMT

It's not often we post a gallery without a review, but the Olympus E-400 is in the unique position of not being available to around 60% of our visitors (those in North America). Because we have limited resources we have prioritize cameras which are available to all rather than a few (I have enough of those to last me until well into the New Year). So in this instance instead of a review we have provided a 46 image gallery taken in Japan.

Phil: I found the E-400 to be a very nice, capable DSLR in use. It focuses quickly and has a short viewfinder blackout which combine to give a responsive feel. The body is light and well designed and despite the lack of a full hand grip is still comfortable to use. Image quality was a mixed bag, clean if lacking that crisp bite we look for at lower sensitivities, noisier at higher sensitivities. Overall the E-400 was a perfect 'carry around' vacation-type camera and we hope it (or something similarly) will one day be available in North America.
