  • Quantity:
  • In-Body Image Stabilization
    In-Body Image Stabilization is a state-of-the-art technology, preventing camera shake for blur free photography. Built into the camera body using the SWD motors, this image stabilization works with all Four Thirds and Zuiko Digital lenses from the 8mm fisheye (16mm equivalent in 35mm photography) to the 300mm super telephoto (600mm equivalent) for handheld shots. Shoot in low light and slower shutter speeds without worry.
  • On-screen Autofocus
    On-screen Autofocus with Live View works as seamlessly as a point-and-shoot to display subjects, in focus, on the LCD the instant the shutter is pressed half way.
  • Shadow Adjustment Technology
    Shadow Adjustment Technology captures detail in the bright areas of a frame and opens up detail in the shadows that other cameras would render too dark or underexposed.
  • Face Detection Technology
    Face Detection Technology targets and locks on up to eight faces to ensure accurate focus for crystal clear, amazing portraits. The LCD shows the faces detected for ease of use.
  • 10-megapixel
    The powerful 10-megapixel Live-MOS sensor means you'll see more detail in your pictures than ever before. And you'll have the flexibility to crop and still produce large, detailed prints.
  • 2.7" HyperCrystal II LCD
    The E-520's 2.7" HyperCrystal II LCD delivers twice the contrast and better viewing in extreme lighting conditions, a broader range of color detail, and a wider angle of view on the LCD.
  • Scene-Select Modes
    With 20 easy-to-use Scene-Select Modes you can simply select the right mode for your shot; the E-520 takes care of the rest. The 20 modes cover practically every common shooting scenario including Portrait, Fireworks, Sports, Landscape, Sunset and many more, even underwater.
  • Perfect Shot Preview
    Perfect Shot Preview enables you to view and select your favorite effect right on the LCD, and see how the image will look, even before you capture it.
  • TruePic III processor
    The E-520's TruePic III processor gives you better color and quality through true-to-life skin tones, brilliant blue skies, precise color transitions, more detail and less image noise
  • Auto White Balance
    The E-520's Auto White Balance function analyzes information from the scene and calibrates how a white object should appear under a variety of light sources, so your images turn out vibrant and life like.
