Olympus, D-620L Digital Cameras@DASHING THING REVIEW

10 Jul
* True “SLR” through-the-lens viewing
* 1.4 million pixels, 1280×1024 image

Huge memory buffer for 0.8 second cycle time for up to 5 images at full resolution!

Olympus has been one of the more successful traditional, film-based camera manufacturers making the transition to digital photography. They established an early leadership role with their D-200 and D-300, and haven’t let up since: They were the first with under-$1,000 digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras, in their D-500 and D-600, and have demonstrated exceptional customer support by offering a retrofit service to adapt their D-600’s to the newer 16 MB SmartMedia standard. Now, they’ve updated their landmark D-600L to the D-620L, adding support for external flash, and an internal buffer memory for incredible shot-to-shot speed.
