As digital SLRs continue to take off, the market’s quickly becoming saturated with entry-level models that don’t cost much more than a high-end point-and-shoot. The latest contender is the Olympus E-520, which costs $699 with a basic lens, and is replacing the E-510. Besides its price, a few features make it ideal for novices: Live View, a dust reduction system, face detection for up to eight faces, shadow adjustment technology, and Perfect Shot Preview. I like that it has three image stabilization options: one for general shooting, one for fast-moving subject, and one that allows for artful panning (a sharp subject with a deliberately blurred background). It’s scheduled to ship in July.
