Olympus E-600


$600.00 Released November, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Affordable price. Great entry-level option - affordable price, 18-scene modes, etc... Same 12MP sensor, internal optical stabilization and articulating 2.7" display as the E-620.

The Cons:Does not accept the more common SD/SDHC flash memory. Buttons are not backlit like those on the E-620. Artificially restricted firmware to deferenciate this model from the upgraded E-620 - lacks two-shot multi exposure mode, aspect-ratio based crop mode.

The Olympus E-600 is an entry-level digital SLR camera due to be released in November, 2009. This camera is essentially a less expensive version of the Olympus E-620, released in May of the same year. The E-600 lacks backlit buttons, two-shot multi-exposure and aspect mask control options when compared to its predecessor.
