More news on the new Olympus dSLR – the E-30

Written by Gary on November 5th, 2008

This site has posted an article which suggests the new “tweenie” Olympus dSLR for early 2009 will be targeting creative advanced photographers:

The Olympus E-30:

  • 12.3mp sensor
  • 11 point AF system, 5fps, IS as with the E3 as expected
  • new swivel LCD – presumably similar to the E3
  • 98% viewfinder coverage with 1.02x magnification
  • face detection AF in contrast-detect live preview mode
  • art filters – live effects in live preview mode
  • new multi-exposure mode

In addition it suggests there will be an update to the ZD 15-54mm f/2.8-3.5 lens with improved contrast and better performance – apparently it will be compatible with Micro Four Thirds contrast-detect AF but seems it is not SWD.

    Many nice things with the E30, but my main question/hope is concerning the claim that size no longer matters sensor size wize when it comes to noise, dynamics etc., most likely a claim to meet the movement to full frame with most other brands.
    If their claim is true, then it makes my day.
