Back in the day the E 10 was my 1st. foray into the realm of digital capture, and to its credit, it's the camera that convinced me that digital was indeed the future of photography. It was equipped with an excellent noninterchangeable lens, solidly built, quiet and dependable workhorse. It was also slow in operation and saddled with a really crummy autofocus system. Still, it traveled with me to every wedding and special event that I shot because it could do one trick that not even my EOS 1v ...

Still used simetimes because of the handy interval timer! High quality pictures resulting from one of the best lenses available. Slow startup (5 s) and write times (writing a complete (5 frame) buffer can take 1 minute).

I owned one of these for a few months, a few months ago. I was curious as to how it compared with modern cameras, especially because the feature set is surprisingly advanced for something so old (it has live view, for example, and the five megapixel resolution was near the top of the heap at the time). It is a five megapixel digital SLR with through-the-lens focusing, although unlike most other SLRs the lens is fixed. The camera uses a small 2/3-type sensor, slightly larger than most compact ...

I have had the E20 for a bout 4 months now, and take about 100 photos a month. This is the third digital SLR that I have had and by far the best with good picture quality and ease of use as all functions are at your finger tips. Have made a few small changes which I find have helped:- like getting the rubber top off a microscope to replace the one on the E20, as it is softer rubber it fits your eye better and cuts out the chance of any light rays when shooting in bright sunlight.. As for ...

Owned mine now for over 2 years and have considered changing to an SLR but with all the potential problems of dust on the imager I am not so sure. After all the image quality seems as good as any of the mid priced SLR's Problems: Poor autofocus in low light and slow write buffer

First there was my E-10, next a Canon eos 300d. If you like to buy such a Canon, think about dust. I have changed lenses app. ten times and have now to pay a lot for cleaning the sensor! My nex camera is a E-20 for shure. Hope to find a buyer for that tupperware Canon with that very cheap plastic body. Never, never I buy again a 300d.

I have had this camra for about six months and I trully enjoy it. It is packed with many professional features, and is quite easy to use. -A big plus is the LCD screen that can be turned horizontally, which is great when taking photos from ground level. - Regular NiHm AA batteries last a long time - through at least 300 shots at SHQ resolution. Problems: The only major problem with E-20 is its size. It has a rather large body and is much heavier than its counterparts (almost twice as ...
