Olympus E-620, a small DSLR for artsy folks

The E-620 is the newest addition to the current lineup of Olympus cameras. In addition to image stabilization, a 12.3-megapixel sensor and live view that we take for granted these days, this model adds a host of creative image filters that add grain, vignettes, enhanced contrast and saturation without having to bother with Photoshop.

The camera is easy to use, light and quiet. It's smaller than many DSLRs and might not be as comfortable as other choices for people with bigger hands. Live view is nice, and the flip out screen allows for a lot more flexibility in composing shots than fixed screens do. This is a good camera for the entry-level shooter, and its feature set will appeal to advanced users as well. Price will be $700 for the body alone or $800 for a kit with the 14-42mm f3.5/5.6 lens when it comes out in May.
