Summary: The only best thing about this DSLR was that it was the first to have live view amongst amateur dslrs and also came with a swivel LCD which is much more useful than many think. However in face of recent competition, lack of image stabilisation, inability to flip LCD, absence of movie mode are big missing features.
Summary: This is my second digital camera. Overall, I like it. The only thing that I don't like is that the picture quality seems not as good as the one I took with my 8 year old digital camera that costed me about 200 dollar then.
Summary: I bought this camera after the E-410 and E-510, then I sold both. The raising display is so much confortable to use (better than E-3's or E-620's). With live view "A" you can quickly autofocus every lens, even the excellent 50mm macro. The E-410 was so "shaky" due to the small hand grip, that almost every picture showed a little motion blur; the E-510 was better, but this e-330 is the steadiest, due the lateral movement of the mirror, I think.
Pros: The most useful live view incarnation, even today (2009 May), "self IS"
Cons: Jpeg's HI iso quality not great (shoot raw instead), 7,5 Mp not so much for today
Summary: I'm shooting (good) pictures since 1985 when I bought my two Contaxes and a bunch of Calr Zeiss and Yashica lenses. Most of my pictures captured in diapositive films and the camera sets were in Aperture Priority mode. My Contaxes are still here and ready to shoot (but where all the images gone?). But this is another story. From the old ages???!!!
Summary: This is the second E-330 I've bought. I take underwater pictures with the camera in an Ikelite housing. I have the 14-54 Zuiko lens and have had no trouble with the camera. Live view mode "A" is great for quick moving underwater creatures. I get to use the LCD to frame my shot instead of trying to look through the veiwfinder with my mask on. The newer models have not had mode "A" and so are not as useful to me.
