Live View Autofocus

In addition to a traditional optical viewfinder, the E-520 boasts a Live View LCD, which makes it easier to compose and shoot in any situation, from any angle. Using the LCD, autofocus works as seamlessly as a point-and-shoot to ensure proper composition and optimal image sharpness. In addition, Perfect Shot Preview enables you to preview and select your favorite effect on the LCD before you capture it.

Advanced Face Detection Technology

A popular feature developed for point-and-shoot digital cameras, Olympus Advanced Face Detection Technology distinguishes up to eight faces within the frame and automatically focuses and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portraits.

Specialty Scene Modes

The E-520 makes it easy to shoot like a pro with 20 easy-to-use Scene Modes optimized for practically every shooting scenario. From portraits to landscapes, the E-520 can be customized for your specialty photos with a simple selection from the menu.

TruePic III Image Processor

The TruePic III Image Processor provides fast camera operation and processing speed for more responsive shooting. In addition to speed advantages, TruePic III optimizes pixel information for brilliant photos with warm colors and accurate skin tones.

Shadow Adjustment Technology

Enabled by the advanced TruePic III Image Processor, Shadow Adjustment Technology compensates for extreme contrast when shooting under bright light conditions such as afternoon sunlight. Shadow Adjustment Technology adjusts the exposure in the shadows while retaining all the detail in the bright areas.

Anti-Dust System

The proven anti-dust system ensures that you'll get spotless pictures - every time. Every time you turn on the E-520, the Supersonic Wave Filter - located between the shutter and the image sensor - silently vibrates an amazing 30,000 times per second, so dust is flung away and collected so it can't come back. As a result, you can change lenses anywhere without worrying about dust.

In-Camera Image Stabilization

Choose any lens. No matter what type of low-light situation you're working in, the Olympus In-Body Image Stabilization System can reduce camera shake by up to 5 shutter speed steps. Because the stabilization system is built into the camera body, it can be used with any compatible Four Thirds optic.
