The Olympus E-420 provides a live view via analog video output. The resolution depends on the output type (NTSC/PAL) and the aspect ratio (NORMAL/WIDE). You will need an analog to digital converter to use this video source with your computer.
Dragonframe controls the Olympus E-420 ISO, shutter speed, aperture (with digital lens), image quality, and size.
You can find the Olympus E-420 manual and specifications at the Olympus website.
