Is the Olympus E-450 just a minor refresh or a feature-filled model worth considering? What Digital Camera reviews the latest entry-level DSLR in the Four Thirds system.
|Pros:||Small and light, excellent live view system with fast AF, dual card slots|
|Cons:||Ergonomics, noise levels still a little higher than competing models, some white balance inaccuracies|
Having finally announced its first Micro Four Thirds model, Olympus has once again reignited interest among consumers wanting small and powerful cameras. It remains to be be seen how well the E-P1 will fare against comparable models, though if first impressions are anything to go by Panasonic's G-series will have not just a strong competitor but one that reinforces the hybrid concept for the undecided.
So where does this leave Olympus's DSLR line, and is there anything that will tempt those still willing to upgrade? The company's latest E-450 is where we turn for such an answer.
