This camera is one of the best buys I have ever made. With 8 million mega pixels it is the only camera you will ever need no matter what your photographic ability.
The e-300 is at home taking high quality close up shots for my own website as well as taking every day pictures of my children and pets.
Battery life is average but easy charged and spare batteries easilly availible for a very reasonable amount. The compact flash cards are also readilly availible which is something that lets other older cameras down.
the camera is not light but not as heavy as others on the market, it is quite well designed menus are easy to navigate however the more novice user would maybe find them a touch confusing. This can be cured by a small amoount of reaserch and plenty of practice taking pictures using the various settings. Alternativly you could just set the camera to Auto and let the camera do the work.
Wow, what can i possible say, THIS CAMERA IS AWESOME!
My dad purchased this item a while ago now and is still discovering new useul features. With its 8.0 million pixels you will be very impressed with the clarity and quality of the pictures. My dad is a very keen photographer but he doesn't get on wll with most new technologies but with the User-friendly menu plus full manual operation he finds it a breeze!
The battery lasts quite a long while but i would reccommend charging it approximately once a week depending on usage this can vary- as i say my dad uses it most days.
Instead of using the cable which is rather slow my dad has opted to use a memory card reader ustilising the CompactFlash card supplied.
The case supplied with it is very strong and also waterproof- however my dad doesn;t want to try that feature!
All in all this is a top- notch camera but then again it is a top- notch price!
Thankyou for taking the time to read my review i trust you have found it of some use, if you have any queries or suggestions for improvements please do not hesitate to send me a message.
The 8 million pixel Olympus E-300 digital SLR has a lean and unconventional form, as a result of replacing the penta prism by a TTL Optical Porro Finder. It combines full SLR performance, perfect handling and a reasonable price.
Based on the FourThirds Standard, this compact SLR model is compatible with the complete range of Olympus Digital SLR-System accessories, including high-precision lenses. The optics feature near telecentric construction to draw maximum performance from the camera's Full Frame Transfer CCD. It incorporates a Supersonic Wave Filter that ensures dust and other foreign particles do not interfere with the function of the CCD. The TruePic TURBO image processor further boosts picture quality and the processing speed.
