E-520 & ED 14-42mm Zoom Lens
Make the most of every opportunity
The perfect moment doesnt wait, thats why serious photographers need serious equipment. With its pro features and top image quality, the Olympus E-520 D-SLR fits the bill perfectly. This evolution in the EISA Award-winning E-500 series incorporates a built-in image stabiliser to ensure blur-free shots irrespective of the lens attached and without the need for a tripod, and without the need for a tripod.
ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6
With a 35mm equivalent focal length of 28-84mm, this specially designed kit lens provides a full 3x zoom performance. Offering a broad focal range from medium wide angle to traditional telephoto, the ZUIKO DIGITAL ED
14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 is not only small but lightweight too.
The E-520 makes blurred photos a thing of the past. Because its stabiliser is located in the ergonomically designed camera body rather than the lens, photographers can shoot with confidence regardless of whichever of the 20+ ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses in the range is attached.
The E-520 is fast too, offering continuous shooting at 3.5fps for up to eight RAW images in a sequence. A TruePic III image processor ensures noise levels are impressively low, even with light sensitivity settings running from ISO100 to ISO1600. For added versatility, photographers can bracket a series of shots to compare varying exposure, focus or white balance settings.
When flash is needed, E-520 owners can select either the built-in pop-up bulb or choose an optional external unit, thanks to the top-mounted hotshoe. Wireless flash control is also possible with this model, making customised lighting set ups an easy reality.
Like all Olympus E-System cameras, the E-520 incorporates a Supersonic Wave Filter to protect its sensor from the incursion of dust when changing lenses, and thus deliver blemish free results.
With the E-520, Live View via the 6.9cm/2.7" HyperCrystal II LCD has been enhanced to boost user friendliness. In addition to previewing depth of field, users can adjust exposure compensation and white balance on-screen, as well as witness the effects of auto focus, Face Detection and Shadow Adjustment Technology in real time.
