Olympus – E-500

My wife has just bought herself a new camera, the Olympus – E-500 dual lens kit. Currently on special offer in out local Currys/Dixons stores with a handy case, 1Gb compact flash cartridge and an Olympus photo printer. We were not too bothered with the printer, but were dissapointed to find the camera wasn’t the proper Olympus 2 lens but the SE kit with the additional Olympus lens supplied separately. The downside of this is that the rechargeable battery and charger were not included in the kit. However the shop assistant kindly agreed to swap the printer for the battery and charger pack! What a result. With the 5 years warranty coming on as an extra £59 this looked to be a bargain.

Reviews of this camera in the various photography magazines and websites have been quite favourable. With having a previous Olympus digital camera, the menus have a familiar look and feel to them. We’ve not yet transfered any pictures to a computer yet so can’t see how good they are compared to our original camera.

Now to see if my better half can improve my good looks on her photographs!
