Very compact DSLR. Excellent build quality. I bought with 2 kits lenses - very good value for money. Brilliant Zuiko lenses, which can be used with M4/3. Overall I am very happy about the system. Problems: Low light focusing. Slow Live View. Noise at high ISO. Small viewfinder.

I love this camera, this is my first DSLR, it is ease to use, it is very light. After a couple of years using it I am taking the photos in raw format and with lightroom making the post procesing and the result are amazing. Problems: Low performance in poor light and ISO over 800

My first DSLR. And still, after trying out more than a dozen others...still so many of my favourite images were taken with this fellow and its kit lens (actually, I had the older kit lens: 14-45mm). I used old OM glass a lot too, and never had a problem with the viewfinder, I could focus fine. OM glass will still produce excellence even on a small(ish) 10mp sensor. A brilliant camera, with a useful live-view mode (tho' rarely used). I personally prefer the E-410 images to the E-400. Little ...

I purchased this model for my hunny in early 2009 I told her its time she moved up and got rid of the point and shoot toy. I picked this camera for her because of the live view. I personaly dont care for the live view, but its what she wanted. E410 is currently being tested for in studio portrait and fashion work, I can not wait to see the results and how she handles this amazing camera Problems: In live view it has problems focusing and when trying to focus the flash is in crazy mode. In ...

I got the E-410 2 lens kit at a boxing day sale for $379 CDN. After 4 months, I am still amazed at the value of this camera with the kit lenses, which offer very good performance in a small package, certainly better than other maker's kit lenses. As a long time OM system user since the 70s, I love the small size of the 410. Yes, the VF is on the small side, but considering this is an SLR priced not much more than many compacts, this can be forgiven. In summary, and excellent introduction to ...

For ~$370 U.S. new (closeout) with the 14-40 kit lens, this is a solid little machine at a magic price. The kit lens impresses, the sensor..not as much. In my opinion, this camera is far less forgiving than larger dSLR's like my 30D. You get what you pay for. It does have better output than a small-sensor p/s cameras, though. Perfectly exposed shots are nice, but this sensor just seems tricky. Go manual/center-weighted and approach it like you are shooting positive film; you'll have much more ...

It really is tiny! I bought one off ebay on special offer, the twin kit bundled with the 14-42 and 40-150. On paper its not that much smaller or lighter than the rest, but believe me, without a bulge for the hand grip / battery storage it makes all the difference! It feels more like a chunky OM-1 (if you are old enough to have owned one) and fits in equally sized camera bags. The 14-42 lens is all plastic, not my normal cup of tea, but actually helps to keep the weight down on the end of the ...

Great value for money, good construction, very nice colours and excellent kit lenses. Dedicated buttons for ISO, WB, focusing and metering are invaluable. Very fast too. ISO perfectally usable even at 1600, very good at 800. Problems: Exposure bracketing is burried in the menues, I'd like to have it more at hand, also limited to 3 exposures, which is not that great for HDR. Highlight clipping is something one must be carefull with (expose for the highlights or compensate to -0.3EV to -0.7EV). ...

Great construction quality, size and handling. Good two kit lenses. Still finding my way with the settings, but I am pleased so far. For 450 E the whole kit, not a bad deal! Problems: Dynamic range, viewfinder and LCD brightness could be better After 10 days of continous shooting and average results ,I decided to return the camera and stick with the Ixus 860is, untill I will be able to handle a DSLR. I'm sure it is my fault so I still recomend the 410
