Durable and portable, this digital SLR camera comes with a range of cutting-edge but user-friendly features designed to help you get creative in your field.

The optical viewfinder in the Olympus E-600 Digital SLR Camera + 14-42mm Lens gives you 95% coverage, giving you complete control over your shots while the 2.7" LCD swivel display lets you get experimental and take shots at awkward angles.

With a picture resolution of 12.3 megapixels, you'll be able to take beautifully detailed and vibrant photos, keeping the quality even when printing out to poster size.

In-camera image stabilisation counteracts camera-shake, safeguarding against blurring, while the integral dust reduction helps to eliminate image-corrupting dust.

Other notable features of this digital camera and lens kit include Face Detection Technology, which tracks faces in your shot and automatically adjusts the focus and contrast, ensuring they're seen in the best light. You can also capture fast-moving objects in detail thanks to the 4fps burst mode.

The ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 lens supplied in this kit has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 28-84mm, allowing you to capture a range of shots from close up portraits to sweeping landscapes.

Affordable and with a range of shooting and exposure modes to play with, the Olympus E-600 Digital SLR Camera + 14-42mm Lens is suitable both for the professional and the budding photographer alike!

I don't get this. Isn't this supposed to be the E-620?
#2
Oh, sorry...I hadn't heard of the 600, only the 620 which I'd love to get hold of.
#3
There's not that much difference between the E600 and E620. This is a damn good deal. HOT!
#4
looks good,i also been waiting for the e620 price to drop,but the e600 price is getting better all the time :)

Because of the smaller sensor size it's not that wide.

indeed. think you have to multiply by 2 to get the 35mm eqivelent....so that means its effectivly a 28-84mm lens

this is starange though as the 600 is effectivle a e-620 minus some features, but i thought it was only sold in the US market?
#8
The E-600 is a slightly stripped down E-620, it lacks the backlit buttons, multi-exposure mode and loses three of the art filters none of which are particularly major - it does keep all the features that make the E-620 decent, it's small/light, has onboard IS and a flip-out LCD screen.

The 4/3 sensor does indeed have a 2x equivalent crop which means the 14-42mm is equivalent to 28-84mm givng a bit of wide angle up to telephoto.

About 1.5 actually.

14mm comes to 21mm which is still very wide by 35mm standards. Of course, it'll be soft wide open, vignetted and probably distorted to hell.

No.

Sorry if this sounds pedantic, but the 35mm equivalent lens size relates to the camera sensor size. Nikon use a slightly larger sensor than Canon and their 35mm equivalent is obtained by multiplying by 1.5, so a 14mm Nikon lens would be equivalent to 21mm. A Canon would have a multiplication factor of 1.6, so a 14mm lens would be equivalent to 22mm. The Olympus sensor is smaller than either Nikon or Canon (only makes a difference at high ISO's) so you have to multiply by 2, so a 14mm Olympus lens equals 28mm.

I think it's 1.5 for Sony/Canon/Nikon etc. Olympus use smaller sensors which makes it a 2x crop from what I've read.

This is a good deal. I've been looking at DSLR's for a while and think I'll plump for this.

Pros.
Small size. stabilisation, good build quality.

Cons.
No autofocus legacy lenses available.

This is entirely incorrect - the 4/3 sensor is smaller than APS-C so the effective focal length is doubled. Also the 14-42mm lens is one of the best kit lenses on the market, maintaing good performance wide open with minimal distortion, no softness nor vignetting.

Not as far as I'm aware, even if it did you'd be wanting to purchase one with a decent capacity. The camera takes either Compactflash or the worthless xD, best to stick with CF cards.

It's not just the lack of autofocus legacy lenses, one of the cons of going with a 4/3 camera is that the second hand market is more limited than Nikon/Canon. However Olympus have extended the lower lens range (which wasn't great when I started with 4/3), the 40-150mm is an obvious choice for telephoto or you can go with the 70-300mm for a bit more reach. As the IS is onboard, you gain its benefits for any lens you mount. The 9-18mm gives an affordable ultrawide range the the 35mm F3.5 allows for close focussing macro capabilities.

Hmmmm....Here's a sample photo I took with this lens yesterday. Wide open. Not cropped.
Looks OK to me!! Taken on a E510 (older model)
Great little lens.;-)

I stand corrected, and that small sensor makes this camera worse than I thought.

It's not a 'small sensor', it's slightly smaller than APS-C which in practice makes little difference particularly compared to the Pentax/Sony APS-C sensors. Before commenting any further you'd be better either actually reading up on the 4/3 system which you clearly know nothing of despite posting otherwise.

Just tried one out in Currys and on program there was a massive delay after pressing the shutter before it took a shot ; really put me of.... it didn't have a storage card but surely this wouldn't have caused this ? Must be an incorrect setting or something - any ideas anybody ? The battery was less than half full but the symbol wasn't flashing...
#26
Probably had the shutter delay set to 2 seconds. Really useful for macros on a tripod.

Thanks! this makes sense; I am looking at the manual for e-620 (can't find one for e-600 on-line) and just tryring to find where this is set ; could it also have been the Anti-shock setting as I can't find the setting for the delay you metioned?

I bought one of these today. Got a amazing deal instore.

Olympus E-600 including the standard lens + the 40-150mm lens all for £400.

This was a deal offered to me in store when I asked. They originally offered me the camera, standard lens, plus the 40-150, a lowepro Altus 140 case + a 4gb compact flash card for £454.

The Camera, plus two lenses was £409. I was able to bring that down just by asking for a discount.

On its own the 40-150mm lens costs £149.99 in Currys. Cheapest I've seen online is £105 I think.

Great deal, was it on display & which store ?
#30
It wasn't on display, but seemed to be a deal they got off the computer. Got a print out of the deal yesterday evening, then bought it from someone else in store at lunch today.

The guy today struggled to find the deal for a bit and I think used the barcode off the 4gb sandisk compact flash to get the deal up in the end??!!

It was at the Jamica Street, Glasgow store.

did anybody buy from currys online ?.just want to know how they post there cameras out now ? wither sent in a plastic bag or box ? my last camera from them was sent in a bag and the camera box ended getting really damaged.
#33
if anyone is still after one, I saw 2 in Telford PC World for £330 yesterday.
#34
I was considering this offer for a while, after managing to smash the screen on my E-510 recently.
I was gutted when I went to the Currys website on Sunday, and they said they had sold out (both in-store and online).
I rushed down to my local store, and managed to get one, which they said was their last in stock.
It is worth ringing round stores if you still want one of these.
#35
Nice thread where you can post your photos, chat and help, or ask for help...:thumbsup:

Back in stock online - can this be un-expired??
#37
Discount code is now 5ALL. Can be used with Quidco.
I haven't had a chance to open mine yet, so I am tempted to return it to store, and order it online...
#38
Nice! I've got a mint condition olympus portrait kit (below £350 currently amazon's price) for sale if anyone's interested?
