  • Excerpt: The Olympus E-1 ($1799 street price, body only) marks the long-awaited debut of the FourThirds system, which was jointly developed by Olympus, Kodak, and Fujifilm. The FourThirds system was created from scratch, with the aim of being the first SLR designed for digital.
  • Pros: Excellent photo quality, though images sometimes underexposed, Superb performance, Very well built (and I mean it), Tons of manual controls, Lenses are designed for the camera, Very handy dust and hot pixel removal features, AF-assist lamp, Low noise below ISO 800, RAW images can be manipulated i...
  • Cons: Images sometimes underexposed, Burst mode cannot be used when noise reduction, noise filter, or shading compensation are turned on, Less resolution, higher price than competition, Only selectable three focus points, Getting exposure info in playback mode is too difficult

  • Conclusion: As a result of the smaller image sensor used, the Olympus E-1 manages to produce an ergonomic lightweight body and lens design that is durable and splash proof.

  • Summary: For the most part, the Olympus E-1 generates very good-looking images that are fit for use straight away, without the need for further manipulation in an image-editing suite.

  • Summary: First-class image quality, but despite a pro-spec build the E-1 disappoints with a slightly underachieving AF system.

  • Excerpt: È di comune accordo che le cose funzionano meglio quando tutti i pezzi si disegnano pensando a tutto e non prendendo un elemento precedente e mettendogli complementi con il calzascarpe. Questo è quello che ha fatto la Olympus con la sua E-1 e il denominato sistema Quattro Terzi.
  • Pros: buona ergonomia, valido sistema di pulizia del CCD, buon funzionamento del bilanciamento automatico...
  • Cons: autofocus lento e poco preciso, rumore eccessivo ad alte sensibilità, bilanciamento del bianco manuale poco efficace...

  • Conclusion: Olympus ha dado un gran y atrevido paso adelante al presentar el sistema Four Thirds. El lanzamiento de la E-1 es admirable y es digno de alabanza que una compañía con un pasado en el mundo de la fotografía tan respetado entre en la era digital a todo gas.

Olympus E-1 Review

Let's go digital
13 October 2004
  • Conclusion: Olympus heeft een grote en gedurfde stap genomen met de introductie van het Four Thirds systeem. De introductie van de E-1 is bewonderenswaardig en het is prijzenswaardig dat een onderneming met een zeer gerespecteerde fotografische achtergrond vol gas het digitale tijdperk in gaat.

  • Excerpt: 1. Opis Olympus je pred enim letom najavil svojo prvo DSLR kamero s 4/3 sistemom. Ni trajalo dolgo in kamero smo lahko že zasledili na prodajnih policah. Že po prvih predstavitvah kamere se je videlo, da bo kamera nekaj posebnega tudi zaradi novega 4/3 sistema.
