Excerpt: My Husband bought me The Olympus E- 330. It is a great Camera. Excellent for a beginner, wanting to break away from the smaller cameras that cannot do as much as a d-slr. It is easy to handle. Has the same shape as a regular SLR. so if you are used to one, this one wont be very hard to get used to. It is swift. Can take pretty good pictures of the kids running around in the yard with no blur. I am pretty amature...
Excerpt: This digital camera is really cool. You should try it. I take pictures on it all the time and people always say that they want to use it and that they want to have it. I have had it for about 2 years and if it breaks I will get one just like it.
Excerpt: I Love it! It's easy to point and shoot and get quality pics. I believe if I learn all the functions I could take some really great pictures! I think it takes a different size memory card than most cameras and I'll probably go through a lot of batteries or have to buy rechargeable batteries eventually. It takes great pictures of fireworks and at night in general.
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
