Olympus release World Smallest SLR E-420




The latest addition to the Olympus E-System, the E-420, represents a winning formula for both seasoned photographers and entrants to the D-SLR domain alike. Users benefit from the remarkable quality only D-SLR photography can deliver, yet also enjoy the ease of use usually only associated with a compact camera. This includes Live View depictions on the LCD, which can significantly simplify image composition. In addition, as one of the world’s smallest and lightest D-SLRs, mobility is hardly an issue. The E-420 will fit just about anywhere – from a small daypack to a lady’s handbag. This makes it a perfect companion for journalists, travellers or other adventurers who appreciate the one-of-a-kind portability, performance and value for money it delivers. The easy-to-use 10.0 Megapixel E-420 features 28 shooting modes to suit a multitude of photographic situations and is ready to use straight out of the box. It will be available in stores from late April 2008.

*As of March 2008
**Full contrast AF performance available with ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6, ZUIKO DIGITAL 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 and new ZUIKO DIGITAL 25mm 1:2.8 “pancake” lens. For all other lenses contrast AF is used in combination with the phase detection AF.

Zuiko Digital 12-60 SWD lens Recall

I gave a call to Olympus Service Centre Malaysia. The way they handle my recall is very profesional. Since it is not convenient for me to goto their service center in Mount Kiara i was allowed to pos laju to them. After 3 working day they call me up and let me know the lens is ready for collection!! Kudos to their splendid customer service.

After i receive my lens back i have test the C-AF mode on my E-3 and notice most of the shot now is in focus. Now i really have the speed and accuracy!!

Hope Olympus Malaysia wil setup more collection centre here in Malaysia.

Keep up the good work Oly Malaysia.
