Olympus Evolt E330 Preview
In the market for digital SLR cameras Olympus invested big-time in its FourThirds system. It was announced some years ago and now already some generations have passed by, and we got one of the latest Olympus innovative products in the office, the Olympus E-330 Digital SLR. Although we had a pre-production sample in the office, we have been able to give you an inside look and feel of this interesting digital SLR concept. 7.5 Megapixels, compact body and interchangeable lenses are not spectacular these days, but the live LCD preview mode is one unique feature on today's interchangeable d-SLR cameras. The Olympus E-330 is the first d-SLR with a real live view mode; I am pretty sure more will follow...
Olympus Evolt E330
Olympus EvoltE-330 - Live view mode - As the world's first digital SLR camera to feature a continuous live view on its LCD, the Olympus E-330 arms photographers with shooting flexibility that was unheard of, until now. Thanks to the camera's TTL optical porro design, this model could be fitted with two separate image sensors enabling two different live view modes. Mode A, for Full Time Live View framing, utilises a CCD mounted in the viewfinder's optical path to return a 92% field of view and retains full AF functionality. Meanwhile, Mode B locks the mirror in the up position and uses the camera's Live MOS sensor to enable a Macro Live View with a 100% field of view. This latter mode is especially helpful for visual focusing on macro subjects, providing the freedom of complete manual focus control which is additionally aided by the possibility to enlarge the selected section of the displayed image by 10x. In addition, two passport templates and various framing grids make composing shots easier.
Olympus EvoltE-330 - MOS sensor - To ensure image quality is second to none, Olympus has fitted this model with the latest-generation MOS sensor for high speed and sensitivity, delivering incredibly true-to-life, 7.5 megapixel results. As with all models in the Olympus E-System line-up, users will enjoy the benefits of dust-free photography thanks to the Olympus-exclusive Supersonic Wave Filter. And for the ultimate in versatility, the Olympus E-330 is compatible with the full range of Olympus E-System accessories. It is shipped with a Zuiko Digital 14-45mm 1:3.5-5.6 lens (equivalent to 28-90mm on a 35mm camera).
Olympus E330
Olympus EvoltE-330 Preview - The E-330 is a very interesting digital SLR, interesting; because of its Live LCD view mode and the incorporation of its tilting LCD display and its rich features. Though you might wonder why Olympus introduced the E-330 as a point and shoot digital SRL... Olympus already has a great dSLR to offer; the Olympus E-500. Besides the endless settings the Olympus E-330 has something unique to offer; the innovative Live View feature. It will give the photographer the perfect tool to capture that impossible shot or focus with a greater accuracy than possible with other dSLR cameras.
