See previous page for RAW workflow.

Olympus E-510 (RAW) vs. Canon EOS 400D (RAW)

Olympus E-510 (RAW)

3,021 KB JPEG (3888 x 2592)

The EOS 400D gains a little more again from the use of Adobe Camera RAW as the image processor, demonstrating slightly better 'per pixel sharpness' (the definition of detail between one pixel and the next, the clarity of single pixel detail). Applying a little more sharpening to the E-510 image would perhaps lift some of its detail but of course could also lead to visible sharpening artifacts.

1. I own E-420 & E-510 and both have the same problem with the incorporated flash: doesn't rise up enough so that in the image taken with lens hood mounted will appear a shadow in the lower part of the image.
2. At the E-510 you can delete an image by mistake because the 'play' button & 'delete' button are very close and there is no message to ask if you wanna really delete it.


1. Take the lens hood off.
2. You've selected the instant delete feature, which WILL obviously delete a photo without any further warning. Go back into the menu and change that setting to the default, which WILL ask for confirmation before finally deleting a photo.
