One of the all-time great names in
top class cameras, the Olympic DSLR cameras are part of a lineage of quality
products. The new flagship E5 DSLR is pretty special, and a good example of the
high Olympus standards. This is a mid-price range DSLR, and the specifications
read like itís got as many features as Olympus have been able to fit in.
The E5 has a lot of true SLR
- X Synch shutter speeds
up to 1/8000 FP speed- This is the worldís fastest shutter, a fact Olympus make
a point of highlighting
- ISO 100-6400 on manual
- Low light Auto Finder
splash and dust control (Very important on high performance cameras)
- HD video with external
microphone and gun microphones
- Precision Zuiko lens
Buying an Olympus
When shopping around online, the first thing youíll notice is
that Olympus show off the very high quality of their DSLR cameras by using
actual shots from the cameras. The quality speaks for itself. Thatís partly
because the Olympus range also comes with a selection of very high pro quality
lenses, notably the Zuiko Digital 12-60mm Pro lens, which is a very wide zoom
lens that can do practically anything you could ever wish a lens to do. It has
the same capabilities as a 35mm movie film camera! With this lens you can also
shoot from 25cm!
have stuck to their strengths with their DSLR ideas- A good all-purpose camera
with everything photographers need built in.
The Olympus DSLRs are all purpose cameras, very
much in the same league as their more costly competitors. Itís well worth
comparing the features of the Olympus DSLRs on the basis of cost, because you
can get a truly great camera for a lot less.
