    In my opinion you made a mistake buying an Olympus for profesional use. The one prolem you are going to run into is if you get into a paper and they have glass available I can guarantee you they will not have Olympus. I know alot of people will be offended with my statement but it is my opinion. I am sure that you can take perfectly serviceable pictures with that camera.

    Number of megapixels has little to do with the quality of a photo. 10 is fine. Even 6 is fine. Taking professional looking photos requires an eye for the shots in the first place, and a kick butt lens after that. All the camera body does is record it.

    My D1h was the camera of professionals for many years(its 2.7 mp)


    The question is can YOU take professional pictures.

    The standards were much lower 8 years ago though.


    The oly e-410 is meant to be a lower class compact DSLR. It can still make great images if the photographer & the lens is good, but this particular camera will have a harder time producing great images compared to a professional body.

    how so? Even the lowest of the low DSLRs today are far more advanced than Jimmy's D1H PRO camera of just a few short years ago?

    A camera has little to do with taking "professional" photos. You need to understand light, aperature, shutter speed, iso, etc before you can start taking quality photos. If you got your hands on a hassleblad it does not mean your photos are goingt o be good it just means they should be a high quality image not a well composed and thoughout image.

    A modern pro DSLR is what I was talking about. Is 10 years a few short years in your eyes? That's like 2/3rds of my life ago.

    I thought all it took to be a professional photog was to get paid for taking pictures, shooting whatever camera you had. Oh, we are talking quality pictures... then the short answer is yes.

    Actually you can still get by with the D1H. Newsprint/magazines dont print that large of pictures as, it stands. It is the skill of the shooter that makes them professional, reguardless of the camera and, glass.
    So to the OP yes you probably can take professional looking pictures with the camera. But the question is do you have the skills is the point.

    OMG I remember using that camera during my photography tech school. But yes with today standards and expectation it wouldnt be a good camera for a working professional. Though for online and newspaper type photography it would work fine. But for large prints thats a whole different story.
