Announced May 13, 2008, the E520 is Olympus' upper-entry level camera upgrade to the E510. The E520 sports similar features to its older counterpart, with nearly identical external features, even down to the measurements and weight. One of the few cosmetic differences one would notice between the two would be blue markings instead of green. Another would be a differently texutrized and finished command dial. However, one of the biggest differences between the E510 and E520 comes in a bigger 2.7 inch, 230,000 pixel LCD screen.
While both the E510 and E520 have the sensor-shift image stabilization feature, (a feature you won't find in their compact little brothers, the E410 and E420), other improvements you'll find in the later model are...
- Contrast detect autofocus (with select lenses)
- Face detection in live view mode
- Auto Gradation (Dynamic Range enhancement)
- Faster continuous shooting speeds (3.5 vs 3.0 fps)
- Wireless flash control (Up to three groups)
- Additional Image Stabilization mode for panning
