Overall, the Olympus E-620 captured some very respectable images during our tests. When using the camera’s Auto ISO mode, we noticed the camera tended to choose a higher ISO than we would have preferred. As a result, some of our test images were a bit noisy. This may not be a big deal for a casual shooter who’s taking snapshots on his vacation, but it’s definitely something to keep in mind when attempting to capture the best quality images. We’ll touch on ISO more on the following page.
Our test shots were captured using the Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 lens and an Olympus xD memory card or a Lexar Professional 233x CompactFlash card. The fact that the camera can hold both types of cards while shooting is definitely handy, particularly if you fill up one card in the middle of an important event.
