Rear of Camera Controls

The rear of the E-420 is - apart from a few very minor design changes - identical to the E-410's. There are comparatively few external buttons resulting in a fairly clean layout although this means you're more dependent on using the on-screen menus for settings such as ISO sensitivity and White Balance.

Buttons (Shooting mode)

I bought this oldie digital as a first experience vith digital cameras, even still use film mainly. So may it was a wrong decision, but I stay beside classic film photography. This camera slow, cheap and only manual mode able to firing promptly. I missed such a moments just because it wait so much before release the shutter. The lens as it is, so far from my zeiss with contax 35mm. Obviously nonsense to compare 66 rolleiflex images. There are lots of set up features, but practically takes long time to modify them, which disturb so much the picture taking. The CF card door a slim plastic door, very fragile. The viewfinder very small. All around this model are far away any real reflex cameras, it seems who design it just never take pictures with a proper camera. I can not recommend this camera, better to smash them all in the name of photography.
