The Olympus E-600 is an entry-level digital SLR camera due to be released in November, 2009. This camera is essentially a less expensive version of the Olympus E-620, released in May of the same year. The E-600 lacks backlit buttons, two-shot multi-exposure and aspect mask control options when compared to its predecessor. The Olympus E-600 features a 12.3-megapixel TruePic III+ sensor, a 3x Zuiko optical zoom lens and an adjustable 2.7-inch LCD. The LCD screen is tiltable by design in order to take photos from irregular positions. Main features of this DSLR include in-body image stabilization, 8-face tracking and 4 frames per second sequential shooing. The E-600 has a built-in dust reduction system, which uses ultrasonic technology to remove particles from the image sensor. The Olympus E-600 accepts CompactFlash Type I & II, UDMA, Microdrives and xD-Picture Cards.
