Olympus E-300 announcement clippings


The Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera has remained essentially the same in both form and function for decades, becoming the high-performance workhorse of choice for both amateur and professional photographers worldwide. But much has changed since the first film SLR debuted all those years ago. Today, the pervasiveness of digital technology has forever altered photography, freeing Olympus from the limitations of traditional film SLR camera designs to be more innovative when building the next generation SLR for the digital age.

The result is the Olympus EVOLT E-300 Digital SLR, the first 100 percent "digital-from-the-ground-up" consumer SLR system with interchangeable digital specific lenses. Incorporating a newly design compact body featuring the Dust Reduction system pioneered on the professional E-1 SLR body, the EVOLT delivers the versatility, durability and reliable performance of an SLR that isn't just for the pros - now it's for photographers of all skill levels at a price they can afford.
