E-420 Features

  • 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.
  • Face Detection Technology
    Face Detection Technology targets and locks on up to eight faces to ensure accurate focus for crystal clear, amazing portraits.
  • 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.
  • Olympus Eco-product
    Certified as an Olympus Eco-product, this camera has a reduced environmental footprint across its entire product lifecycle, which encompasses not only the product and its packaging, but also the manufacturing and logistical processes in bringing the product to the marketplace.
  • Compact Design
    The E-420 measures 5.1 inches by 3.6 inches by 2.1 inches, and it's a featherweight 13.4 ounces -- making it the world’s smallest digital SLR.
  • dust reduction system
    The Olympus dust reduction system is an industry first and a proven technology. Every time you turn on the E-420, the Supersonic Wave Filter™ — located between the shutter and the image sensor – silently vibrates an amazing 35,000 times per second. Dust is flung away and collected so it can't come back.
  • Digital Image Stabilization
    The Digital Image Stabilization Scene Select Mode allows high ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds so you can freeze the action to capture sharp, blur-free images even if you or your subject is moving.
  • 2.7" HyperCrystal II LCD
    The E-420'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.
  • 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.
  • TruePic III™
    The E- 420'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.
  • wireless flash
    Expand your creative reach with wireless flash compatibility. The E-420 is compatible with the Olympus FL-50R and FL-36R wireless electronic flashes that are designed exclusively for digital photography.
  • Scene Select Modes
    With 18 easy to use Scene Select Modes you can simply select the right mode for your shot; the E-420 takes care of the rest. The 18 modes cover practically every common shooting scenario including Portrait, Fireworks, Sports, Landscape, Sunset and many more.
  • ergonomically designed
    As soon as you grab the E-420, you'll notice how naturally it fits in your hand. The improved grip is ergonomically designed for superior comfort. The E-420's body is lightweight and stylish so it's a pleasure to carry and use for hours at a time.
  • Memory Cards
    Accepting CompactFlash Type I & II, Microdrives, and xD-Picture Cards, the E-420 provides a choice of data storage options for enhanced flexibility, and it is possible to transfer image files from one card to the other right inside the camera.
  • 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 before you even capture it.
  • 3.5 frames per second
    Fire of a burst of shots at 3.5 frames per second. The E-420's burst rate is perfect for capturing the ideal shot at backyard birthday parties or at youth soccer games.
  • Auto White Balance
    The E420'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.
  • Four Thirds Mount
    The benefits of the Four Thirds Mount on the E-420 are many. You get a digitally designed image sensor, a compact design, as well as expandability and compatibility with the rest of the Four Thirds System.
  • Zuiko Digital™ lenses
    Olympus' Zuiko Digital™ lenses provide edge-to-edge pixel-perfect clarity. Unlike film lenses, these advanced, precision-engineered 100-percent digital lenses are designed to work perfectly with all the camera's digital technology.
