Olympus E-3

Professional is a man who has too much work and too little time – nowhere could this be true as with a lensman, since he has to invest heavily in lenses and cameras. It frustrates even the youngest child when the internet is slow or acting up in any up. Imagine the frustration of a lensman when his camera takes more than a fraction of a second to start up. Even compact point and shoot cameras are valued for their speed in starting and auto focus, so one can only imagine the importance of speed when it comes to DSLRs. The Olympus E-3, in such a case, would benefit greatly as a lensman’s choice for a fast camera. This 10.1 mp camera claims to be the fastest auto focusing camera.

Design and Functioning

The E-3 is, like most cameras in this class, pretty big and relatively heavy, but overall handling is excellent. The camera sits comfortably in the hand and the excellent grip and shutter release /control dial positioning combine with a well balanced distribution of weight to give a solid, stable impression in use. With this camera, users get to experience the World's Fastest Auto Focus with the Olympus exclusive 11-point biaxial auto focus system coupled with the new (SWD) Supersonic Wave Drive lenses. Its highest shutter speed value of upto 1/8000-second enables freezing of even fast moving objects, which can be a boon for those who dabble in flash photography. Olympus’ revolutionary Live View shooting provides the next generation of composition control in digital SLR photography. The E-3's Live Simulation allows the user to check exposure, white balance and composition -in real time, while you compose — with the integrated Live View technology. The E-3 provides Mechanical Image Stabilization, which compensates for camera movement up to 5 steps EV. The built-in SWD image stabilization is available for every lens attached to the camera body, so there is no need to purchase image stabilized lenses. This camera is compatible with CompactFlash card Type I and II as well as xD card.
