In a situation like this, Prosumer cameras are sure to sell like hot cakes, for instance the Olympus E 30. This camera comes with resolution of 12.3mp and comes with a kit lens of focal length range 14mm to 54mm, along with other impressive features.

Design and Functioning

When a DLSR comes with a solid and sturdy body and impressive features and specifications, no one really cares how heavy it is. After all, no sensible person would want to twirl an SLR on the tip of one finger. The Olympus E 30 comes with a magnesium alloy body and weighs 730gms. With its Multiple Exposure function, it is possible to alter space and time by combining images shot in different locations and moments. The Olympus dust reduction system is an industry first and a proven technology. Every time the camera is switched on the E-30, the Supersonic Wave Filter — located between the shutter and the image sensor – silently vibrates an amazing 30,000 times per second, flinging any dust particles out of the image sensor. It also comes with the In-Body Image Stabilization, which is a state-of-the-art technology, preventing camera shake for blur free photography. It is compatible with SD/SDHC cards for storage.
