Olympus E-300 Review - SpotPhoto

Jan 20, 2005 | Category: Olympus E-300

Olympus E-300Writing these reviews is always difficult. You can actually like the camera a lot but still find many things that bug you. I did like Olympus E-300. It’s not perfect camera and it lacks in some areas (autofocus speed was sometimes an issue) but for this price I think it’s a very good camera. So if you’re looking for your first digital SLR I suggest you certainly give E-300 / Evolt a try.

Olympus Stylus Verve / µ(mju:)-mini Digital Review - LetsGoDigital

Olympus Stylus Verve / µ(mju:)-mini DigitalThe Olympus Stylus Verve / µ(mju:)-mini Digital is equipped with an optical zoom, we would have preferred a 3x optical zoom. The images are bright and clear and the excellent macro function does its job fantastically. A strong trump, rich details and a fabulous resolution. Some distortion is found, especially at wide angle images. The images taken with a tiny bit more zoom are rather neutral, as far as distortion is concerned. All in all the Olympus Mju mini Digital is a very pleasant camera to work with. This model belongs to the 2e generation of Olympus digital Mju cameras. And it goes without saying: the result is praiseworthy. A waterproof housing, a fantastic design and the user-friendly operation seem the ideal combination to hold a successfully vendible product. The Mju-mini is the perfect camera for someone who loves the design and besides that looks for a camera with an easy operation and a photo-realistic end result. In short, a recommendable camera!

Olympus E-300 Review - DCRP

Jan 14, 2005 | Category: Olympus E-300

Olympus E-300The Olympus EVOLT E-300 is a very good digital SLR whose most impressive feature is its price. Okay, maybe the dust removal feature is up there too. Anyhow, the E-300 gives you more resolution than any of the low cost D-SLRs out there, though the photos seem softer and fuzzier than I would expect from a D-SLR. One solution to this problem is to shoot in RAW mode and then convert the images to JPEGs — this improved sharpness and color too. In addition, high ISO performance isn’t quite as good as those cameras. But for $999 (with the lens) you get a heck of a camera. Camera performance is what you’d expect from a D-SLR, with pretty fast focusing, no shutter lag, and fast shot-to-shot times. The Nikon D70 does beat the EVOLT in terms of startup and continuous shooting performance, though. In terms of features, the EVOLT has plenty, from full manual controls to custom white balance to support for RAW and TIFF images. While the camera doesn’t have a dedicated AF-assist lamp, it will use the built-in flash for that purpose, and the flash does its job well. Being a D-SLR, the E-300 is totally expandable, with several lenses, flashes, filters, and more available. As you’d expect from a totally new system (FourThirds), there aren’t as many accessories out there as you’d find for the Canon, Nikon, or Pentax cameras.

Olympus D-395 / C-160 Review - CNET Reviews

Jan 11, 2005 | Category: Olympus D-395 / C-160

Olympus D-395 / C-160The 3.2-megapixel Olympus Camedia D-395 offers a nice set of basic features at a very affordable price. However, its 33mm lens (35mm-camera equivalent) limits its versatility. It doesn’t cost much more to get a camera with a 3X zoom lens, a feature that most people will find is worth paying a little extra for.

In typical Olympus fashion, the D-395 has a sliding lens cover that, when opened, powers up the camera. Its moderate size and weight–6.8 ounces with batteries and an xD-Picture Card installed–put this camera in the pocketable class, while it’s not too small for larger hands to operate.
