On unwrapping the Olympus E-300 you will see that there is a distinct lack of the normal viewfinder prism normally associated with an SLR, but with the exception of the fairly flattish top, all the other bits you would expect are there and it definitely looks like a camera. The front of the rubberised grip has a ridge down it that sits well in the joint of the fingers whilst carrying the camera, but feels a little pronounced when using it. Another rubberised patch sits at the back of the camera for your thumb to rest on and is well placed between the controls. A selection dial sits on the top of the camera, with the on/off switch on the right side in an easily accessible place. Below, behind and partly covered by the selection dial is the single adjustment wheel that again, feels right. Auto Exposure lock and focus point selector buttons sit just below this wheel.
