OlympusOlympus E-330 Evolt : 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… PMA 2006 will be interesting.

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.

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).
