Olympus Announces the E-3 Pro DSLR, to Ship in November

Olympus E-3 Four Thirds Professional DSLR Camera

The new flagship of the Four Thirds-based Olympus E system is here: the Olympus E-3, touting the highest levels of speed and image quality as well as Live View capabilities and reliability.

The E-3 features an advanced AF system and new Zuiko Digital SWD (Supersonic Wave Drive) lenses. With shutter speeds of up to 1/8000th sec. and 5fps sequential shooting (with a 19 image RAW buffer in burst mode), the E-3 is targeted at professional photographers who want to capture that decisive shot.

The new professional camera also incorporates a built-in image stabilization system which is capable of compensating against the effects of camera shake to the equivalent of up to 5 EV steps. This is complemented by a 10-megapixel high speed live MOS sensor and Olympus’ TruePic III image processing engine.

Its 2.5-inch multi-angle LCD displays a live view which faithfully displays the effect of camera adjustments in real time.

The Olympus E-3 will be available from the end of November 2007. The body only will be available for approximately $1,699, the kit with the 14-54mm lens for approximately $2,700 and the kit with the new 12-60mm lens for approximately $3,100.
