    Question Juz a newbie qn on DSLR

    Me is not yet a DSLR owner. I came across Olympus E-410 on the Internet. This cam has no in-built image stabilizer. May I know how does it "stabilize" pics leh? or is it able to use Canon/Nikon compatible lens to enjoy image stabilizer function?

    Hope some experts can clear my doubts. Thks in advance.

    With Olympus, you're limited to their 4/3rds mount and cannot use Nikon or Canon lenses.

    And you stabilise the camera by using your hands and using a proper shutter speed or tripods/monopods.

    If I'm not mistaken, they use the image stabiliser on the camera body, not the lenses.
    E-3 and E-510

    Check it out if you're interested.

    Else, read up more on the different technologies that the different camps can offer.

    4/3 cameras have built in image stabilzers,only on the E-510 and E-3,in E-410's case,it uses high iso to act as a image stabilizers,4/3 mount can use Nikon lens but not Canon lens with use of adaptor,however,cannot use the VR of Nikon lens and you only get manual focus if you do so

    Canon & Nikon has IS on their lenses while others like Sony, Pentax & the later models of Olympus have IS on their body, hence making every lens mounted on the body comes with IS.

    Do find out a bit more on this thru some reading.
