Olympus has just launched a new DSLR, the Olympus E-30.
The E-30 features a 12.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor, and it is a traditional DSLR with an 11 point autofocus system and a maximum ISO of 3,200.
Six innovative Art Filters enables special artistic effects to be created directly in the camera and put you in control of your composition: styles like Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pale & Light Colour, Light Tone, Grainy Film and Pin Hole let you capture your world the way you want to portray it.
These effects would normally require special lenses, filters, or image processing programs, but with the E-30, it all happens inside the camera. You can even preview the effect of a particular filter on the 2.7/6.9cm HyperCrystal* II LCD before shooting.
Whats more, in Multiple Exposure* mode, several images can be superimposed on a previously-captured image to take photographic creativity to a whole new level. The E-30 also offers nine different aspect ratios for nine different takes on any scene. In addition, Live View with improved high-speed contrast autofocus depictions allows for easy framing of shots on the free-angle LCD.
The Olympus E-30 DSLR will go on sale for around $1,300.
