Huh?

I didn't know there was a E-600... I own the 620 but this is confusing...

Re: Huh?

Must be a joke, what would be the point of an E 600

I had heard that a E600 was in the works, but I have to say....

WTF over? Why would they release something that looks exactly like the E620 - what's the logic behind it. Is it similar to what Oly did with the E450 to the E420? It doesn't make sense, unless they've done something radical to the insides (sensor, vastly improved high ISO capabilities, etc.). But even then...why the look-alike?

I don't get it....anybody have any insight?

Physically it look exactly like the E620. I wonder what about the inside.. 7AF or still 3AF point? TruPic III+ or TruPic V?

a mystery!

I did see the E600 rumors a couple weeks ago at the usual place, but didn't think about it much. I suppose if you cancel the 420/520 for sure, then offer a little brother version of the 620 for something like $200 less, it sort of makes sense, barely, crammed in between the 450 and 620.

Probably made with a mobile phone or something like that... I don't think it's a hoax; to forge blurred numbers would be much harder than to forge sharp ones.

Cheers,

Time to convert the E-450 into a micro 4/3rds camera. The whole idea of the E-450/420/410 was smallness.

Don't think so. It was about dSLR smallness. If they took away the flash, they could cram IS into it and could make it as small as the E-P1, except for thickness. Much better tool, with OVF and PDAF.

That if they didn't listen to the tarts of marketing. Quite a few people are selling their E-P1 anyway, poor lemmings.

Re: a mystery!

I can seeit replaceing the E450, (and I thought the 620 replaced the 520??), but didn't the E450 just come out a bit earlier this year?

Maybe it is an E450 with flippy LCD plus inbody IS???? Looks like the 620 but has a smaller number (600) because smaller than 620?

Fake

it's look like a fake
reasons :

1) we see e-600 in A SHOP !!! not in presentation . not in a press release - but in a SHOP ? and this is clearly a shop on those picutre

2) on a first picture - there is clearly seems e-620 on background - and those 2 look exactly a same .

That means nothing. It's not unusual for a dealer to see a product before it is launched. The reps for the companies sometimes bring them in to the shops.

Except when you already have a blurred "0" character from the E-620 and just need to replace that "2" with it.

Look at the camera in the backround, it shows 620 and it appears to be part of the same shipment as the camera in the forground. Strange

Adopting sony's strategy-

the new e-600 will replace the e-620, more expensive but with downgrades, the continuous shooting speed will be reduced by 0.5 fps and the view-finder will be smaller, the live view will only cover 90% now

unlike sony olympus are going to be honest with the numbering and giving the e-600 it's deserved "20" less than an e620

unlike sony's a380 which deserves to be an a340

lol sorry, at least im in the right forum for it

Re: Huh?

Or to photoshop, then apply a blur to the image to cover up any evidence in the pixels.

Re: Huh?

E600 was rumor/leak at the other 43 rumor site a couple weeks ago, and that look pretty legit, still these picture can be fake, but more likely to be real to me
