Olym­pus adds video with its evo­lu­tion­ary E-5 DSLR, writes Jen­nifer Dud­leyNi­chol­son

Olym­pus im­proves qual­ity and per­for­mance with the E-5. ation, easy ac­cess to four shoot­ing modes, and oneb­ut­ton LiveView to turn its screen into a viewfinder.

It has some draw­backs, too. Its menu is need­lessly com­pli­cated, hid­ing im­por­tant set­tings, its au­to­matic dis­play bright­ness can make it hard to see pho­to­graphic re­sults, and it lacks some of the in­no­va­tion seen in some of its price ri­vals. The E-5’s shoot­ing speed, light sen­si­tiv­ity and video han­dling could and should be bet­ter.

That said, the E-5 is a well­built, re­li­able DSLR cam­era ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing de­tailed pho­to­graphs and the oc­ca­sional video.

Olym­pus fans should be re­lieved to have a new fo­cus for their gad­get lust.
