Camera News

Olympus discretely announced their new entry-level E600 digital SLR today. The E600 is a whole lot like the E620 we reviewed earlier this year, minus three Art Filters, Multiple Exposure, multi aspect ratios and backlit controls. Naturally, the E600 also has a lower price tag tacked onto it. Personally, I think there’s a lot going for this camera - it’s essentially the E620 with a lower price tag and missing three firmware features (which you can essentially perform using computer software like Photoshop). But if you’re stuck between this and the E620, you can check out our Olympus E620 review to see if you really need those four extra things on the E620.
