Advanced image stabilization keeps your images sharp even when the camera is moving. The E-510 uses Olympus' sensor-shift image stabilization technology to counter the effect of camera shake. The exclusive Supersonic Wave Drive motors provide two modes of accurate high-speed image stabilization. One mode provides blur-free photography for everyday situations like low-light settings. The other mode helps capture clear images even while panning during action shots. Olympus' Image Stabilization technology is built into the body of the E-510 so it works with every lens, unlike legacy film technologies built into the lenses.

It is not always easy to use an optical viewfinder – in a crowd you can't see over the heads of those around you, and low angle close-ups can be hard to reach. With the E-510, you have another option - use the Live-View LCD screen to preview and review photos. And you'll see the screen with amazing clarity from almost any angle.
The high-resolution, 2.5" HyperCrystal™ LCD screen (230,000 pixels) means you can compose your shots easily, even outside in sunlight.
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.
