  • Conclusion: Olympus E-30 digital SLR camera Olympus is fond of the limelight, and has worked on the FourThirds system for the last few years. It once started in 2003 with the E-1 and we have witnessed, in particular over the last few years, an enhanced speed of introducing innovative improvements and renewals. Live View was adopted by Olympus at an early stage; an extremely compact and light DSLR (E410/E420) also came rolling off the Olympus fabrication line.

Olympus E-30 Review

8 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Olympus has re-entered the highly competitive enthusiast/semi-pro sector of the market with the release of its E-30. With a resolution of 12.3-million pixels, it offers more megapixels than any other model in its E-series system – although Olympus will continue to recognise the E-3 as its flagship model, thanks to the higher durability and waterproofing.

Olympus E-30 DSLR camera review

Pocket Lint
18 March 2009
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, good ergonomics, menu system, comprehensive and creative feature set, customisability, super control panel, top plate display, responsive, good dust reduction system, handling
  • Cons: Bulky for a FourThirds Format camera! Viewfinder slightly blurry, not much more detail than E-3’s 10MP sensor, comprehensive feature set means complex menus

  • Summary: I'm impressed with the results that the E-30 has produced and I think that the resolution is about right for the sensor size and noise performance. I do wonder if keeping the resolution at 10Mp would improve noise and transfer speed.
  • Pros: Super fast autofocus, Good noise control, Nice landscape results, Good build quality, 5EV exposure compensation, 5EV image stabiliser, Improved autofocus in live view, Expanded metering system
  • Cons: Muted colours on colour chart, Slight cast in portrait mode, Purple fringing in high contrast areas

Olympus E-30

PhotoReview

  • Summary: A feature-rich Four Thirds System DSLR for photo enthusiasts.Designed for photo enthusiasts and amateur photographers who want a more sophisticated camera, the new Olympus E-30 is the first in a series of 'double-digit' models that will slot in between the 'three-digit' entry-level models and the professional 'single-digit' camera. The new camera's 12.3-megapixel Live MOS sensor replaces the 10-megapixel imager currently used across the company's DSLR range.
  • Pros: You're looking for a small DSLR camera that can accept a wide range of relatively compact lenses., You'd like to choose from the widest possible variety of image aspect ratios when shooting JPEG files., You require sophisticated in-camera image stabilisation and effective dust reduction technology., You'd enjoy a DSLR with lots of in-camera adjustments and special effects for JPEG files., You want a Live View system that offers extensive preview functions plus support...
  • Cons: You want to shoot video (the E-30 can't)., You're a low-light photography enthusiast or a sports photographer who requires faster continuous shooting speeds than 4 frames/second., You're not prepared to grapple with the complexity of the controls and menu system.

Olympus E-30 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Na een intensieve praktijktest gecombineerd met de technische testen van het DIWA Lab komen we al snel tot de conclusie dat de Olympus E30 een zeer serieuze DSLR is die een zeer uitgebreide functionaliteit te bieden heeft. Weliswaar wordt de camera op enkele puntjes afgetroefd door de sterke concurrentie, het totaalbeeld dat de camera biedt is er een van een DSLR camera die absoluut sterk staat en overtuigt.
