Great camera for the new photographer

  • Excerpt: The Olympus EVOLT-300 was one of the first digital SLR's Olympus came out with. It has a fairly primitive white balance that requires the photographer to know something about white balance before taking good photos. Of course there is an "auto" setting for WB too. The camera is a great starter for the serious photographer. A good used E-300 would make a nice gift for a beginner.

  • Excerpt: I've used my canera for Weddings, Partys, commercial photography, even Hot air balloon events and I've never had a problem with the camera it makes taking pictures easy.  It has special exposures for night, landscape, portraits, action and scenes.  I wouldn't be without it!  The newer camers may be great in megapixels but you can't beat the quality you get from this camera!

  • Excerpt: My husband loved this camera so much he bought two (he lost the first one).  When the lost camera turned up, we had two and when we replaced them with a newer model, we gave one to my sister (a high school student) and gave the other to my two year old daughter to use!  They both still work great after six years of (heavy) use!

love this camera

  • Summary: i did lots of researching, internet and stores, on most of the novice friendly slrs's out there. i really wanted the canon rebel xt because it's the lightest one out there and pretty sharp looking. when i was unwilling to pay the price i took a serious look at the olympus e300. it's not as pretty as the rebel but there are still many reasons to love this camera! i actually like that it looks like the cameras of yester-year!

  • Excerpt: "...more expensive cameras. it comes with olympus master, as well as a cd manual. olympus master is relatavely good, but i recommend using picasa2, which is supplied free by google. the main reason i switched to picasa is because a few months into having the camera, for whatever reason, olympus master lost me 400-500 photos, which i wasnt very pleased about, so i got picasa, and havent had any problems with that as yet. all in all a great little ...
  • Pros: Compact and fun to use, compatable with OM lenses with adapter .
  • Cons: quite a bit of noise at high isos .

User Review

  • Conclusion: I have found this a very good camera to use if you select your subject carefully. The camera is slow to focus in bad light, which can be very frustrating ( if only wildlife would stay still ).Using Olympus manual macro lenses and attachments adds a new dimension to the camera and the inbuilt flash is almost perfect for close-up work. A underated camera in my veiw, but needs much use to bring out the best.
  • Pros: good resolution, extremly tough, sharp images.easy menus.
  • Cons: white balance unreliable.slow start up.

Olympus EVOLT E-300 Gehäuse Digitalkamera

antoschka-2007, eBay.de

  • Summary: Eine hochwertige, digitale Spiegelreflexkamera in einem robustem Mtallgehäuse !! mit einem guten Handling. Obwohl die Erstausgabe diese Types schon einige Zeit her ist,wird diese Kamera für einen Hobbyfotografen noch immer fast allen Kriterien gerecht. Selbst wenn man vorher kaum mit elektronischen Kameras zu tun hatte, findet man sich sehr schnell in die Bedienung hinein.

Buena compra

  • Summary: Llevo con ella cerca de un año y ha sido una compra muy buena. Con el limpiador que incluye se evita las molestas fotos con manchas por culpa del polvo. Su manejo es muy sencillo como todas las cámaras de la marca. Soy biólogo y realizo fotografia natural, la verdad es que la calidad de las fotos es muy buena y la velocidad de disparo lo suficientemente rápida como para congelar la imagen de animalitos.
  • Pros: calidad - precio aceptable, velocidad y rendimiento buenos
  • Cons: el peso y el tamaño
