Excellent price for this.

As with its predecessor, the Olympus E-520 comes packed with a built-in stabiliser and a large LCD screen, ensuring your snaps are what you expect them to be: nothing short of perfect! This 10 mp camera kit also includes a useful Olympus Zuiko 17.5-45mm Zoom Lens, giving you the flexibility to shoot wide-angle vistas and portraits, and everything in between!

The built-in image stabiliser of the Olympus E-520 10mp Digital SLR Camera ensures sharp results irrespective of the lens attached, and adapts to shooting conditions, meaning you can take great photos whether you're on the back of a motorbike, out in the hills or standing in the kitchen!

The Olympus E520 is equipped with a host of new, state-of-the-art features, giving experienced photographers everything they need to live their passion for photography to the max. These features include an improved Live View mode, depth of field preview, advanced exposure control, auto white balance and face detection, which together make framing and taking fantastic, crystal-clear photos easy!

The sheer performance on tap is also impressive, as the Olympus E-520 has a burst mode of up to 3.5 full-resolution frames per second and a TruePic III image processor to keep up! The Olympus E520 stores your creations on xD-Picture Card or CompactFlash memory cards for extra versatility.

I'm a novice and interested in taking up photography. I would like to buy a decent DSLR camera, and don't really want to buy another one in the next few months down the line as the 'features' may no longer be suitable or I need to upgrade it to something better to cope with hopefully, my increased competency of photography. Can anyone help me with some advice? I've been told to either get a Nikon or Canon, but at this price, it seems pretty decent. Thanks in advance.

This model has a cheap 17.5-42mm lens. It's a special Dixons/Currys lens. The normal lens is the 14-42mm.

As with any SLR, you not just buy a single camera but into a whole camera system. If you start with one brand (Olympus,Canon, Pentax, Nikon, etc), you have to stick with that brand for all future purchases. This is why it is important to look at what else the manufacturer offers in lenses and accessories.

Most camera makers use a full size APS sensor for their SLRs. Olympus and Panasonic use a smaller 4/3 sensor, therefore low light photography is not as good as with the other makes.

I highly recommend to go to a shop and handle the camera of your choice before you buy. This is the only way to find out which model is right for you!

Hope this helps making your choice.

I agree with your comments but it's still a cracking price for a DSLR and would be a good starter camera. I do agree that for most people its not a great system to get into if someone gets bitten by the photography bug....

I didn't go for an Olympus DSLR in the end as their focusing & capture speed was a little slower than Canon/Nikon etc

well having said that, the Oly makes you rowrk for the good pics you can get from it. While most people I know who have a canon and Nikon, use only the Auto mode in it. If you want a camera to use in auto mode, go for any make except Oly. Oly as a system is brilliant, once you get into it. The E30 is a gr8 camera to move upto. I think its a cracker camera to start from!!! I started my DSLR work on the 520 and it took me a yr but now I fknow the finer points of photography!!
