Olympus EVOLT E-300 Review

Although it looks radically different from other digital SLRs, the Olympus E-300 is an excellent photographic tool with comfortable handling, nice controls and superb built quality. Featuring 8.0 megapixel resolution, a large 4/3 image sensor, an exclusive Supersonic Wave Filter that eliminates dust from the image sensor every time you turn on the camera, easy-to-use scene modes, and compatibility with the full line of Zuiko Digital Specific Lenses, we can see why Olympus fans get very excited with the EVOLT E-300.

Photoxels.com have posted their review of this unique dSLR and had this to say-
"The Olympus EVOLT E-300 will appeal to two groups of photographers: the professional photographer looking for a backup digital SLR, and the advanced amateur photographer ready to graduate to a digital SLR offering full control and exposure flexibility. The Olympus EVOLT E-300 has full exposure flexibility and provides a degree of fine control in its settings that professional photographers will appreciate. Or, just set it to Programmed Auto (or one of the 14 Scene Modes), and first-time dSLR users can shoot away and still obtain great results.
...
The Olympus EVOLT E-300 is a dSLR with professional features but at an affordable price. The camera with the two digital lenses can be obtained at a street price below US $1,000. I would recommend also adding the Olympus Electronic Flash FL-36, and you then get a complete system that allows you to cover all possible situations outdoors and indoors."
