OlympusOlympus E3 Digital SLR review : In 2003 Olympus introduced the first model of the FourThirds System: the Olympus E-1, aiming at the professional digital photographer and equipped with various innovations. Four years later Olympus have come up with the successor to the E1. There had been some rumour about the name; Olympus P1, P3 and E3 were mentioned and the latter was chosen. Although the Olympus E3 may be considered the successor to the Olympus E-1, it differs considerably from its predecessor. Among other things; its price tag. The Olympus E3 digital SLR finds itself more or less in the category of the Canon EOS 40D and the Nikon D300, a heavy competition. > Continue to read our full Olympus E3 review!

Olympus E3 Features
It's quite logical Olympus have equipped the Olympus E3 with many of the same features as introduced with the other Olympus models over the last few years. Such as the SuperSonic Wave Filter (SSWF). You'd almost forget that Olympus was the first manufacturer introducing a vibrating filter in front of the sensor for removing dust. Nowadays nearly every digital SLR camera has this functionality. New is the fact that the sensor is placed vibrating, so the Olympus E3 is now offering incorporated image stabilization.

Olympus E-3 Review

Olympus E3 Body
The new housing will appeal to professional photographers. With its magnesium alloy body the camera can stand a few bumps. And what's even more important; the E3 is weatherproof. We have already experienced that at the press conference in Istanbul. The Olympus passed with flying colours for a day in extreme rain showers. What's also important is the 100% coverage of the E3's viewfinder that enables you to see exactly what you're capturing. The viewfinder is enhanced too, making it easy to check sharpness. This was not the strongest point of the E-1. The Oly E3 lets you shoot to your heart's content; the shutter is guaranteed to 150,000 pictures. Sufficient for a few years of intensive shooting.

Olympus E3 Test

Olympus E3 Review
We had a good impression of the capacities of Olympus' new flagship on that rainy day in Istanbul but it's not until you extensively test a camera before you detect its real character. We have had the Olympus E-3 in our possession for quite a while and have tested the camera comprehensively. Continue to read our full Olympus E-3 review and enjoy the sample photo gallery.
