The revolutionary Olympus E-1 Interchangeable lens Digital SLR is a dynamic camera that can handle many types of photographic situations and deliver superior results in a wide range of settings, from indoor to studio, fashion to journalism, sports to portrait photography, and more.
The camera features a high performance Super Latitude Full Frame Transfer CCD from Kodak, which delivers high dynamic range, low noise levels and excellent color accuracy. This innovative 5 Megapixel CCD outperforms many higher Megapixel count imagers. In addition, the E-1 utilizes advanced technologies like the exclusive Olympus TruePic Technology to achieve high image quality and realistic digital photographs. The incorporated Noise Filter and Noise Reduction technology produce clear, clean files, and the unique Supersonic Wave Filter significantly reduces the chances of dust settling on the CCD and blocking pixels.
The E-1 is built to last with a magnesium alloy metal body that is lightweight and durable for heavy daily use by the most demanding professional photographers. A splash-proof body and lenses provide excellent protection against dust and moisture, allowing photographers to shoot in the most difficult conditions without concern for the performance or life of the product. The system delivers a true film-like experience with fast shooting and operating speeds, dramatically reducing the lag time often associated with digital cameras, while second generation coreless motors in the Digital Specific Lenses achieve focus speeds comparable to or better than the best film SLR lenses.
The E-1's progressive Full Frame Transfer CCD with separate camera control SDRAM and large SDRAM buffer, coupled with the E-1's parallel data processing 3 ASIC Digital Processor engine, overcomes many of the bottlenecks in image processing and camera operations. The E-1 can capture images at 3 frames per second for a burst of 12 frames in all image quality modes in addition, included capture software delivers another boost in shooting speed, allowing direct capture of data to a computer.
