The Olympus E410 achieves a score of 35/100 in our evaluation. This DSLR camera, announced on March 5th, 2007, entered the market at a launch price of $480. With dimensions of 130 x 91 x 53mm and weighing 435g (0.96lbs), this camera has been around for quite some time.

When comparing the E410 to today’s market, its specifications may not stand up against more advanced models. However, this camera still offers a decent option for those seeking a budget-friendly DSLR. The Olympus E410’s score reflects its performance in relation to other cameras available in the market.

Olympus E410 Overview and Optics

The Olympus E410 receives a score of 34/100 for its optics. With 10 megapixels, a shooting speed of 3 fps, and an NMOS sensor, this camera offers basic features for photography enthusiasts. Its TruePic III processor and DXOMARK score of 51 for the sensor demonstrate the camera’s modest performance capabilities.

The E410 utilizes a Micro Four Thirds sensor size, which is smaller than the more common APS-C sensors found in many modern cameras. Its lens mount is also Micro 4/3, limiting the available lens options. The camera lacks image stabilization, which is a significant disadvantage for those looking to capture sharp images in various conditions.

The camera’s aspect ratio is 4:3, which is standard for this type of device. However, when compared to today’s market, the Olympus E410’s optics specifications fall short of the competition. This camera may be suitable for beginners or those on a tight budget, but advanced users will likely find its performance lacking.

The higher the number of megapixels, the more detail the cameras sensor can capture.

Image Resolution
Image resolution is measured in pixels and megapixels, width by height. The higher the number, the higher its resolution.
3648 x 2736 px
Sensor Type
The camera sensor captures light and records the image. Sensors vary in physical size, the number of pixels, and quality.
Sensor Size
The sensor size contributes to the overall quality as well as the dynamic and tonal range a camera can capture. As a rule of thumb, the more surface there is to read the light, the more information it will capture.

Micro Four Thirds
Frame Rate
The number of sequential frames per second the camera can write to the memory card when shooting in burst or continuous mode.
3 fps
Lens Mount
The lens mount will tell you what type of lens range you can fit onto the camera body. Often the same camera company will have different lens ranges for different cameras.
Micro 4/3
Image Processor
The image processor in the camera converts the information collected on the sensor for digital storage on the memory card.
TruePic III
Aspect Ratio
The aspect ratio refers to the proportional difference between width and height. The most popular aspect ratios are 3:2 and 4:3.
Minimum ISO (Native)
Refers to the lowest native (or 'base') ISO setting. Lower ISO are less sensitive to light but make a cleaner image.
Maximum ISO (Native)
Refers to the highest native (or 'base') ISO setting. Higher ISO is necessary for low-light situations or night photography, but higher ISOs often introduce grain or noise.
Minimum ISO (Expanded)
Expanded (or extended) ISO is a digitally enhanced feature available on some cameras. It allows you to push beyond the native ISO range if necessary.
Maximum ISO (Expanded)
Expanded (or extended) ISO is a digitally enhanced feature available on some cameras. It allows you to push beyond the native ISO range if necessary.
Minimum Shutter Speed
The minimum shutter speed will tell you the longest exposure your camera can take without using an external accessory.
60 s
Maximum Shutter Speed
The maximum shutter speed tells you the length inside 1 second the camera will capture. These can sometimes be extended with accessories such as extra external batteries.
1/ 4000 s
Autofocus Points
Autofocus points show where the camera is focusing graphically as squares or brackets in Live View or on an electronic viewfinder. These points are also used for light meter readings.
In-body Stabilization
In-body Stabilization means the camera has a certain technology embedded that counteracts camera shake.
Viewfinder Type
The viewfinder type is either electronic or optical. Electronic viewfinders will have a small screen in the viewfinder. Optical viewfinders will use prisms and mirrors to look through the lens.

Olympus E410 Features and Benefits

The Olympus E410 scores 30/100 in the features category, indicating that it lacks some of the desirable modern specifications. The camera has a 2.5-inch screen with a resolution of 215,000 dots, which is relatively low compared to current standards. It does not have a touchscreen, flip screen, GPS, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth capabilities.

Comparing the Olympus E410 to contemporary cameras, it is evident that it falls short in offering the latest technological advancements. Most modern cameras come equipped with touchscreens, higher screen resolutions, and convenient features such as GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth for seamless connectivity and sharing. The absence of these features makes the Olympus E410 less appealing to current users who expect and rely on such specifications.

The Olympus E410, while a decent camera for its time, struggles to compete in today’s market due to its limited features. Although it may still capture quality images, it lacks the convenience and versatility that contemporary photographers have come to expect from their cameras.

Olympus E410 Storage and Battery

The Olympus E410 receives a storage and battery score of 60/100. This camera offers two memory card slots, accepting Compact Flash (Type I or II) and xD Picture Cards. In today’s market, these memory card types may not be as popular as SD cards, but they still provide sufficient storage options for users.

As for the battery, the E410 relies on the BLS-1 battery type, providing a decent battery life of 500 shots per charge. However, this camera does not support USB charging, which is a feature commonly found in many modern cameras.

Taking these specifications into account, the Olympus E410’s storage and battery capabilities are adequate but may not meet the expectations of users accustomed to more advanced options available in the market.
