New Olympus E-330 DSLR offers live LCD preview

Olympus E330

One thing users of a fixed lens digital camera have to get used to when switching to a DSLR is losing the ability to see their image on the LCD while they compose the photo. That is, until this week, when Olympus announced the E-330 DSLR with tilting live view LCD screen. The ground breaking camera also sports a 7.5 Megapixel sensor and a supersonic wave filter for cleaning the imaging sensor.

From the press release:
London, 26 January 2006 – With its new E-330, Olympus introduces the fourth SLR body in the award winning Olympus E-System and expands the horizons of photography by including live view on the LCD screen of a digital SLR for the first time*. This ground-breaking innovation enables framing of shots without the need to look through the viewfinder, allowing users of the Olympus E-330 to remain aware of what’s going on around them while they shoot – a significant advantage for reportage or sports photographers. As the image is relayed live on a large bright LCD screen measuring 2.5”/ 6.4cm framing the subject is made much easier in situations when using a conventional viewfinder is too awkward, such as when photographing underwater. And as the large LCD on the Olympus E-330 can be tilted or swivelled to virtually any angle, the versatility of the Olympus E-330 is extended even further.
