The new Olympus Evolt E-30 is built based on the FourThirds system, continuing the line that was built-up over the last few years according to the expectations. The E30 is quite similar to the high-end camera; the E-3, although it comes with a less all-round magnesium housing. The E30's housing is made of plastic, strengthened by fiberglass. The water resistant and dustproof features of the housing are exclusively reserved for the housing of the E-3. The viewfinder of the Olympus E-30 offers approximately 98% coverage, whilst the E-3 offers 100%. And there are a few more setting possibilities on the E-3 that take things a bit further compared to the Olympus E-30.
The Olympus Stylus 790 SW digital compact camera has been available for a few months now, so high time to interrogate this new member of the Stylus family. The Olympus Stylus 790 is a camera belonging to the successful series of cameras Olympus once entered the film era with. The first analogue Stylus cameras were true gadgets; very compact and equipped with beautiful bright optics (Stylus II). It was quite logical to take the Stylus concept along to the digital era from the traditional one and here we are, a few generations later with the Olympus Stylus 790SW camera.
