High Dynamic Range Imaging

High dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of luminances between light and dark areas of a scene than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to shadows.

This is a basic technique in HDR imaging using Photomatix 3.

Camera Review - The Best Entry Level DSLR 2007-2008

Review based on a production E-510

Just before PMA in March 2007 Olympus lifted the curtain on two new Four-Thirds system compact digital SLRs, the E-410 and this model, the E-510 (which is essentially a replacement for the well regarded E-500). Although the E-510 has much in common with its little brother, including an all-new (Matsushita) Live MOS Image Sensor that can provide Full Time Live-View on the LCD monitor and an updated TruePic image processor, it is a considerably more sophisticated tool with some important extra features. Key amongst these is a sensor-shift image stabilization system and more sophisticated external controls, though are also numerous minor feature differences too. Note that some of the text in this review (when describing identical functions) is repeated from the E-410 review

Key feature comparison (vs E-500 EVOLT)

Of course the E-510 is actually the successor to the E-500 (and the E-300 before it), and although the headline changes are significant (new sensor/processor, live view, in-body stabilization), there are also a number of minor feature tweaks and improvements (in fact far too many to list here, so we'll stick with the basics).

  • New 10MP Live MOS sensor and TruePic III processor
  • CCD-shift image stabilization
  • The return of Live View
  • New kit lenses
  • Faster USB interface ('real' USB 2.0 speed)
  • All-new body shape
  • Wired remote option
  • Slightly higher continuous shooting frame rate and larger raw buffer
  • New high resolution LCD screen
  • Loss of some minor features (ISO step control, manual focus bracketing, time lapse, customizable display color scheme, TIFF)
  • A few new and/or improved features (true auto ISO with limit setting, noise filter)
