a while, all the cameras that come and go here at the DCRP start
to seem the same after a while. That's why it's so nice to try something
different for a change. When I first read about the Olympus
E-100RS ($1499) and it's claim to be the fastest digital camera
out there, it didn't hit me very hard. But when I actually got a
hold of this camera and shot my first sequence of photos at 15 frames
per second, I couldn't believe my eyes.
Pros: Amazing 15 frames per second captures action like no other consumer digital camera, 10X optical zoom, Full manual controls, Manual white balance, Support for external flash, Uncompressed TIFF format, 640 x 480 movies with sound!, Both SmartMedia and CF II slots
Cons: Expensive, Only 1.5 Megapixel, Does the Microdrive work or not?
