Product Details

Olympus Evolt 10 Megapixel Digital SLR Camera In Black, Model EVOLTE420KIT (product #- 262081

The E-420 is the world's smallest digital SLR with all the features you need to take great pictures anywhere you go, every day. The innovative and unique Olympus Autofocus Live View function allows you to frame and focus your photos using the large 2.7-inch LCD as a viewfinder. The E-420's Scene Select Modes make you an instant expert -- or switch to manual mode to expand your creative control. This feature-rich digital SLR also sports Shadow Adjustment Technology and Face Detection, both viewable in real time on the Live View LCD.

World’s Smallest.
The E-420 is small enough to fit into a purse or a jacket pocket and light enough to shoot with comfortably all day. Measuring 5.1 inches by 3.6 inches by 2.1 inches (excluding protrusions), it is the world’s smallest digital SLR. And at a featherweight 13.4 ounces, only its predecessor (E-410) weighs less.

Autofocus With Live View.
Two innovative technologies merge to create a unique digital experience. The E-420’s on-Screen Autofocus works as seamlessly as a point-and-shoot to display subjects in focus on the LCD the instant the shutter is pressed half way. And the Live View LCD, enables photographers to hold the camera away from their faces and at angles they just cannot reach by using the optical viewfinder alone.

Face Detection.
The E-420’s Face Detection feature distinguishes between people’s faces and the background. This innovative technology tracks up to eight faces within the image area and automatically focuses and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.

Shadow Adjustment Technology.
Shooting scenes with shadows can be tricky because of the extreme contrast between dark and bright areas. The E-420 addresses this challenge with Shadow Adjustment Technology that compensates for extreme contrast when shadow areas are underexposed and lack visible detail. This technology works automatically when using Face Detection Mode, Live View and in Scene Select Modes.

Dust Reduction.
Life moves too fast to spend time worrying about dust ruining your images. Olympus' proven Dust Reduction System produces spot-free photos with the exclusive Supersonic Wave Filter™. The patented ultrasonic technology vibrates to remove dust and other particles from the front of the image sensor and captures it on a special adhesive membrane every time the camera is turned on.

Digital Image Stabilization.
The E-420's Digital Image Stabilization, activated as a Scene Select Mode, allows high ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds so you can freeze the action to capture sharp, blur-free images even if you or your subject is moving.

2.7" Hypercrystal II LCD.
New and Improved HyperCrystal II™ Technology delivers twice the contrast and better viewing in extreme lighting conditions, a broader range of color detail, and a wider angle of view on the LCD so you and your friends can see it up to 176 degrees off-center.

10 Megapixel Live MOS.
Get amazingly detailed, colorful and clear images with the 10-megapixel Live-MOS image sensor. This high-resolution sensor captures all the detail needed to make large prints, or even crop without losing detail. The E-420 sensor's high dynamic range, accurate color rendition and low noise characteristics let you capture great images, even at high ISO settings.

Perfect Shot Preview.
Perfect Shot Preview enables you to view and select your favorite effect right on the LCD, and see how the image will look before you even capture it, so you know that what you see is what you get.

Wireless Flash.
If you decide to venture into the arena of advanced lighting, the E-420 is ready to meet the challenge. The E-420 is compatible with the Olympus FL-50R and FL-36R wireless electronic flashes that are designed exclusively for digital photography. When these flashes are used in combination with the E-420, wireless multi-flash photography is possible.

ZUIKO DIGITAL
14-42mm F3.5-5.6

This 3x standard zoom lens is the smallest and lightest* in its class and features a closest focusing distance of only 25cm. The ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and two aspherical lens elements correct aberrations without increasing lens dimensions. The circular aperture diaphragm enables beautiful defocusing - one of the big advantages of this lens. Excellent mobility is assured by a weight of less than 190 grams.

Features & Benefits:

  • On-Screen Autofocus with Live View works as seamlessly as a point-and-shoot to display subjects in focus on the LCD the instant the shutter is pressed half way.
  • Face Detection Technology targets and locks on up to eight faces to ensure accurate focus for crystal clear, amazing portraits.
  • Shadow Adjustment Technology captures detail in the bright areas of a frame and opens up detail in the shadows that other cameras would render too dark or underexposed.
  • The E-420 measures 5.1 inches by 3.6 inches by 2.1 inches, and it's a featherweight 13.4 ounces -- making it the world’s smallest digital SLR.
  • The Olympus dust reduction system is an industry first and a proven technology. Every time you turn on the E-420, the Supersonic Wave Filter™ — located between the shutter and the image sensor – silently vibrates an amazing 35,000 times per second. Dust is flung away and collected so it can't come back.
  • The Digital Image Stabilization Scene Select Mode allows high ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds so you can freeze the action to capture sharp, blur-free images even if you or your subject is moving.
  • The E-420's 2.7" HyperCrystal II LCD delivers twice the contrast and better viewing in extreme lighting conditions, a broader range of color detail, and a wider angle of view on the LCD.
  • The powerful 10-megapixel Live-MOS sensor means you'll see more detail in your pictures than ever before. And you'll have the flexibility to crop and still produce large, detailed prints.
  • The E- 420's TruePic III™ processor gives you better color and quality through true-to-life skin tones, brilliant blue skies, precise color transitions, more detail and less image noise.
  • Expand your creative reach with wireless flash compatibility. The E-420 is compatible with the Olympus FL-50R and FL-36R wireless electronic flashes that are designed exclusively for digital photography.
  • With 18 easy to use Scene Select Modes you can simply select the right mode for your shot; the E-420 takes care of the rest. The 18 modes cover practically every common shooting scenario including Portrait, Fireworks, Sports, Landscape, Sunset and many more.
  • As soon as you grab the E-420, you'll notice how naturally it fits in your hand. The improved grip is ergonomically designed for superior comfort. The E-420's body is lightweight and stylish so it's a pleasure to carry and use for hours at a time.
  • Accepting CompactFlash Type I & II, Microdrives, and xD-Picture Cards, the E-420 provides a choice of data storage options for enhanced flexibility, and it is possible to transfer image files from one card to the other right inside the camera.
  • Perfect Shot Preview enables you to view and select your favorite effect right on the LCD, and see how the image will look before you even capture it.
  • Fire of a burst of shots at 3.5 frames per second. The E-420's burst rate is perfect for capturing the ideal shot at backyard birthday parties or at youth soccer games.
  • The E420's Auto White Balance function analyzes information from the scene and calibrates how a white object should appear under a variety of light sources, so your images turn out vibrant and life like.
  • The benefits of the Four Thirds Mount on the E-420 are many. You get a digitally designed image sensor, a compact design, as well as expandability and compatibility with the rest of the Four Thirds System.
  • Olympus' Zuiko Digital™ lenses provide edge-to-edge pixel-perfect clarity. Unlike film lenses, these advanced, precision-engineered 100-percent digital lenses are designed to work perfectly with all the camera's digital technology.
