Olympus E-620 digital SLR turns your photos into art

Thanks to the Olympus E-620, taking photos just became a whole lot more fun

Thanks to the Olympus E-620, taking photos just became a whole lot more fun. The company is touting its Art modes as a way for novice users to get interesting visual effects without having to use a photo editing program on their computer. The E-620 has six Art modes to choose from, including: pop art, soft focus, pale & light colour, light tone, grainy film, and pin hole. These Art modes made their debut in Olympus' advanced E30 digital SLR and have now trickled down to the more mainstream E-620. Although we were sceptical of the Art filters' usefulness, after playing around with them for an afternoon around Sydney harbour we think these modes can definitely be used if you want to spice up your photos, without making them look tacky. Furthermore, these photos also highlight the E-620's ability to capture clear photos and also show it to be a stellar performer in low light.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
