Olympus E-620 - A license for creativity
The Olympus E-620 digital SLR has been designed to stimulate creativity, being packed with features that will give a different look to the shot that’s being captured, all without the need for a computer or special software. Familiar from the E-30, the Art Filters enable a selection from one of six exciting themes. Additionally, there’s the option to utilise the Live View display to overlay up to three stored RAW images in order to create amazing new Multi Exposure masterpieces, all in real time. Plus, users can always frame their shot in any way that suits their fancy. All they have to do is choose between four different aspect ratios - from 4:3 (standard) to 6:6 (medium-format) to 16:9 (cinematic) - and the picture is theirs.
The Olympus E-620’s has an elegant and comfortable to hold body, and the Built-in Image Stabilisation corrects camera shake up to four steps, assuring steadiness and making tripods unnecessary. This digital SLR also features a free-angle 2.7"/6.9cm HyperCrystal III LCD with 176° viewing angle, which means shots can be taken from almost any perspective. This way, you can even capture a field of daisies from a bee’s point of view! The Olympus E620 gives you the ability to use up to three separate, camera controlled, Wireless Flash groups - an option first introduced with the Olympus E-3. And with the attachable HLD-5 Power Battery Holder, taking vertical photos becomes a breeze while the extra battery performance enables shooting for longer hours. With such an impressive array of functions, the potential of the Olympus E-620 can be stretched as far as the photographer’s imagination.
Olympus E-620 - A camera with the works
A camera that inspires creativity needs to be extraordinarily functional as well, and the E-620 doesn’t disappoint. One of the D-SLR’s most exciting facets is the new 7-point Twin AF which features seven distance-measuring points, five of which are cross-points. This Olympus autofocus technology was developed for the professional E-3 after the comprehensive analysis of thousands of photographs and interviews with professional photographers. It has now been tailored to hobbyist needs: the five cross-points work by using horizontal and vertical sensor lines to supply data that determines the ideal focal points of each shot. This ensures every snap of the shutter produces blur-free results. In addition, the AF was specifically designed to work easily and rapidly with SWD lenses. With the E-620, being out of focus becomes a thing of the past.
Offering the latest-generation TruePic III+ processor framing, the Olympus E-620 also has an exceptional viewfinder which magnifies up to 0.96x and provides 95% viewing coverage. An Auto White Balance also helps reproduce vivid and true to life colours.

Equipped with Olympus’ exclusive Supersonic Wave Filter dust protection system - the most effective dust protection system on the market - the Olympus E-620 digital SLR knows how to look after itself. In addition, the camera’s buttons illuminate to provide valuable aid when shooting at night or in low-light. The Olympus E-620 can be enjoyed with nearly all E-System accessories, such as 33 lenses and flash systems. New robust Olympus Flash Brackets, like the FL-BK04, ensure maximum flexibility and good light in any situation where a flash may be needed. And two flashes are also not a problem with the practical FL-BKM03 Twin Flash Bracket, on which any wireless flash or the twin flash set STF-22 can be mounted.
