Olympus E-3 SLR Digital CameraProfessional photographers don’t settle for anything but the best. And neither should you! After all, how are you going to take professional, beautiful photographs working with an inferior camera?

The best decision lies in choosing equipment on par with the task, and the task is to capture your precious memories in a way that will wow your audience, no matter how large (or small)! So go ahead; make the Olympus E-3 your professional choice.

The Professional Choice


The E-3 is the flagship Olympus D-SLR model from this point forward.
Considering it took Olympus four years to finally supersede their E-1 model, you can expect that the E-3 is more than capable of exceeding all expectations. Olympus E-3 SLR Digital CameraJudging by the looks of it, the Olympus E-3 means business and will undoubtedly be a truly viable option for the uncompromising photographer.

The Olympus E-3 offers several advancements in the areas of speed, image quality, reliability and live view technology. Thanks to its 10-megapixel image sensor, images come out so lifelike that even the most hardened photographers will be impressed. With the Olympus-exclusive 11-point biaxial auto focus system and Supersonic Wave Drive lenses, you experience extreme auto-focus precision at unparalleled speeds. The Olympus E-3 is also capable of continuously shooting up to five frames per second, which will capture dynamic (read:moving) subjects with precise focus and clarity. You’ll be able to shoot lots of pics as well, since the camera is made of a rugged magnesium-alloy material and has a shutter mechanism tested to last 150,000 cycles. The camera’s compatibility with UDMA CompactFlash means that you can store your images quickly.

With a wide range of shutter speeds, you control what the resulting image looks like. The 1/8000-second shutter speed setting works like magic for freezing-framing fast-moving subjects. Conversely, you can set the shutter speed to a maximum of 60 seconds, if it tickles your fancy. The possibilities are endless with this great camera!

It’s also easier to compose images with the Olympus E-3: Live View shooting mode lets you compose images through the vivid 2.5-inch dual-axis, free-angle swiveling Live View monitor. You don’t even have to use the viewfinder for accurate images! The Live View monitor does an excellent job of representing the shooting scene with 1-to-1 accuracy. Olympus E-3 SLR Digital CameraLive Simulation technology lets you achieve the perfect image: check exposure, white balance and composition in real-time! Of course, that’s not to say that the E-3’s viewfinder is weak. It’s just that now you’ve got two choices for 100% accuracy.

A common problem with SLRs is dust accumulating on the image sensor while changing lenses. But thanks to Olympus’ Dust Reduction System and Supersonic Wave Filter self-cleaning sensor unit, the camera is fully protected. The sensor unit vibrates 30,000 times per second, thus ensuring spot-free images all the time.

Olympus promised a high-end digital-SLR; and they delivered with the E-3. Rugged, robust, and competitively-priced—the Olympus is clearly the professionals choice.
