Olympus E-3 Review

Digital Photography Review has posted a review of the Olympus E-3 EVOLT and the reviewer was very positive about the camera, but was less sure if people would switch.

To start with there’s no doubt that the E-3 is, without a shadow of a doubt the best Four-Thirds camera ever made and a more than worthy (if a little tardy) successor to the original E-1. It offers users of Olympus ‘mid range’ SLRs an affordable way to upgrade to a faster, even more customizable camera with a pro-grade weatherproof body and a significantly bigger, brighter viewfinder. But does it offer enough to tempt users of other systems over to the Four-Thirds camp? The answer to that question is far less clear-cut.

I really like the Digital Photography Reviews as they are so thorough including sample and comparative shots, if you want to get a camera, I would check the review on Digital Photography Review first before anywhere else.

Digital Photography Reviews

Digital Photography Review has recently reviewed quite a few digital cameras these are well detailed and thorough reviews and well worth reading if you are interested in getting a new digital camera.

Olympus SP-560UZ

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS

Sony Alpha DSLR-A700

Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10

The Sony looks like the one I would buy if I was buying a new digital camera, but then I am very fond of my Sony Cybershot and would be interested to see how their SLRs perform compared to my Canon.

Olympus E-510 EVOLT Review

Digital Photography Review has posted a review of the Olympus E-510 EVOLT and the reviewer was very positive about the camera.

I’ve been using the E-510 for an unusually long time – the delay in publishing this review meant I ended up living with it for several months, which allowed me to really get to know it in the same way an owner would. And my overall impression, I have to say, is very positive indeed. 

I often think these long term reviews are so much more useful and realistic than someone having the camera for a few days or even a few hours. It’s only after a lot of use that  you really get to know the ins and outs, the things that work well and the things which annoy you.
