If you haven’t already seen this, and are looking for an SLR, check the Canon 450D.
Here is whats new.
- 12 Mega Pixel.
- Live View (what you see is what you get). Olympus was the first to have this but finally Canon has caught up.
- SD Card Support (Earlier Canon SLRs were CF, this is the first SLR with SD/SDHC support.
- Big 3″ LCD.
- Higher capacity Lithium Ion battery means more shots with a single charge. But note live-view will drain more power.
One advantage the Olympus E510/520 still has over the Canon is it has in-body Image Stabilisation. Image Stabilisation in the Lens obviously works better but in-body Image Stabilisation means you don’t need to spend more money on every lens to get Image Stabilisation.
Overall a good buy.
