Olympus D-510 Zoom Review
Olympus Camedia D-510 Zoom
Extremely versatile, the D-510 Zoom not only offers a choice of four preset resolution levels, but the ability to record full motion video as well. In addition to the maximum 1600 x 1200 resolution for photo-quality prints up to 8" x 10", users may also select from 1280 x 960, 1024 x 768 and 640 x 480 settings to best match desired image quality and file sizes to the intended application. Even at the lowest resolution setting, the D-510 Zoom delivers superior picture quality for e-mailing photos or posting images on the web. To capture short clips of live action, the D-510 Zoom's standard QuickTime Movie Mode records up to 62 seconds of full motion video without sound at 15 frames per second on a standard 8MB SmartMedia card, making it the perfect choice for users producing webcasts and e-mailing short videos.
At any resolution setting in still image or movie mode, the D-510 Zoom processes all images through its 2.1-megapixel CCD, capturing every detail of every frame. The D-510 Zoom supports industry standard SmartMedia™ cards to capture images in JPEG and TIFF formats. The camera ships with one 8MB card standard, providing ample capacity to store up to 82 pictures in SQ-Normal mode. Additional SmartMedia cards are available in 16, 32, 64 and 128MB sizes.
Once an image or video clip is saved and stored, it may be displayed on the D-510 Zoom's 1.8-inch color LCD monitor. This large display allows for enhanced playback and viewing options, including 4-, 9- or 16-frame Index Display Mode, Single Frame Display with 1.5X, 2.0X, 2.5X and 3.0X Zoom Inspection, plus sequential image scrolling. The LCD monitor also serves as the camera's control panel, with an easy to use jog dial and arrow keys to select modes and settings.
The D-510 Zoom delivers photo-quality images up to 8" x 10" when image data is downloaded to a computer and output on a photo-quality ink jet printer. SmartMedia cards may also be inserted directly into one of Olympus' P Series dye sublimation printers for high quality prints up to 4" x 6". The D-510 Zoom supports the DCF file naming format and the Digital Print Order Format (DPOF) standard for adding data to images and tagging specific photographs to print to DPOF-compatible printers.
