Product description
Product Information
The E-620 comes with free angle live view in a small and light body. With the art filter and multiple exposure functionality, it is sure to expand your world of expressions. In addition, the image stabilization built into the E-620 means that image stabilization is available with all FourThirds lenses you may decide to use. Combined with the standard class lenses with light weight and high cost performance, image stabilization is always available throughout an approximate 33x zoom range from 18mm ultra wide angle to 600mm zoom, relative to 35mm film format, for everyone.

Product Features
  • Create unique, striking images with multiple exposures shooting
    With this camera multiple exposure function you are free to tell a visual story your way, whether in a portrait, a landscape or a combination of both. The image capture options allow you to shoot two shots on the same frame, use a save shot and then shoot another, or to capture up to 3 shots separately and combine them in the camera later. Superimpose your own portrait with a starry night sky to create a photo with the impact you desire. Let your imagination lead you to creative discoveries.
  • Creative ideas come in all sizes with multi-aspect ratio shooting
    Since photography is a form of expression that is essentially based on clipping a scene, framing is an important component of style.
  • Fast and accurate
    The seven-point twin cross AF system provides fast and accurate focusing with the speed that rivals the world class E-3 AF system. Super sensitive seven-point twin including, five-twin cross AF target points, can measure focus both vertically and horizontally, so regardless of the subject, focusing is super-simple and fast. With a dedicated phase detection AF sensor, shooting moving subjects, like a runner crossing the finish line, is lightning fast.
  • Live view AF
    In live view the E-620 uses the advanced Autofocus technology of the E-30 with 11 dedicated AF points for fast and accurate focus. Whether using the face detection feature or close focusing on a flower, this system provides quick response times and is as simple as pressing the shutter button.
  • Get clear and colorful photos with the 12.3-megapixel live MOS
    The E-620 packs a 12.3 MP Live MOS sensor and the TruePic III image processing engine to provide accurate color fidelity, sharp detail, professional picture quality, and overall superior performance. The sensor delivers excellent dynamic range and a state-of-the-art amplifier circuit to reduce noise and capture fine image details in both highlight and shadow areas.
  • In-body image stabilization (3 modes)
    The E-620 features in-body Image Stabilization. That means you can use any four thirds lens, from wide-angle to telephoto, for perfectly clear, crisp photos no matter what the shooting situation, even in low light situations. With the E-620, you can compensate for camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps.
  • Face detection (8 faces)
    Face detection reduces the chance of blurred subjects in photography by distinguishing between people faces and the background. It tracks up to eight faces within the image area, even if people are moving, and automatically focuses and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures (ideal for large family or party group photos).
  • Shadow adjustment technology
    Shadow adjustment technology compensates for extreme contrast when shadowed areas lack visible detail. Shadow Adjustment Technology adjusts the exposure in the shadows while retaining all the detail in the bright areas. This technology works automatically when using face detection, live view and in scene-select modes.

Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewVery Good


    High-quality photos; solid performance; articulated LCD; some nice features, including savable custom settings, in-body image stabilization, Art Filters, and a wireless flash controller.


    No video capture; more complex to operate than is necessary.


    While it's a solid budget dSLR with good photo quality and a host of advanced features, the Olympus E-620 still falls behind the competition on most counts.

    Olympus E-620 - Great product

    I am upgrading from the Olympus E-500 (8mp) to this Olympus E-620 (12mp). What a great upgrade. I stayed with Olympus because all of my (expensive) accessories would be too expensive to replace and I was familiar with the functionality. This was like going from a V6 to a V8 car. The camera is fast, functionality is consistent, the focusing upgrades are much improved. I did have to purchase new backup batteries however, they were relatively inexpensive. The camera actually seems lighter than the e-500 and the battery life is great.

    One of the bads: I have to update my photoshop program from CS3 to handle the RAW files - but that has nothing to do with the camera.

    check out this link for my photo library. The netherlands set are with the E620 - http://www.flickr.com/photos/l​abeyta. The increase in pixel density is a huge plus.

    Great camera.

    Maybe someday i will go from my v8 (E-620) to a v12 (E-5) but for now (and the price), I am quite happy.

    Olympus E-620 Kit

    Very nice well made sturdy unit,go to a store and handle like cameras from the other big guys you will see-they fell cheaper and more plasticity,and they cost much more!! Kit lenes are good will get you started-but you will want the better lenses soon. Now its not a beginners camera,probably should have some SLR experience I come from point and shoot and much to learn about the E620 Buttons and settings galore-takes time to master.(still working on that). Maybe you could buy a better camera but not in this price range..so I guess you can call me satisfied Oh by the way it takes great photos once you learn it a bit. sd7749724

    Review of E-620

    I bought this Olympus E-620 to replace my E-510. Although there are some new features, and a 12 mp vs a 10 mp, I'm not sure there's that much of a kick-up. It appears to me the E-510 has a little better build quality. The movable LCD on the E-620 is fine for those who use an LCD to provide framing and focus but I prefer the viewfinder, such as on my D90. Olympus has been a little pricey and the lens prices are way above the general Nikon/Canon array. Olympus does have quality glass and that's been true for a long time.
