An EVOLT Of Lightning
The Olympus EVOLT E-500 D-SLR is extremely compact and lightweight, plus it can be purchased in a one- or two-lens package at a low price of less than $900. The camera features an 8-megapixel CCD sensor and the TruePic Turbo engine for fast image processing that limits artifacts and fringing. To reduce retouching time in your digital darkroom, the Dust Reduction System utilizes the Supersonic Wave Filter that shakes 35,000 vibrations a second to remove dust from the sensor every time you turn on the camera. The camera's large 2.5-inch LCD displays larger text and icons so you can navigate through the menu options and view your images with ease. List Price: $699 (body only); $799 (with 14-45mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 Zuiko Digital Zoom lens); $899 (with 14-45mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 and 40-150mm ƒ/3.5-4.5 Zuiko Digital Zoom lenses).
