DCRP’s Jeff Keller has recently posted a review on Olympus Evolt E-330, a 7.5 megapixel MOS sensor Digital SLR with Live View feature which enables you for framing of shots without the need to look through the view finder.
“Photo quality on the E-330 was excellent in my opinion. The camera took properly exposed photos with accurate colors, minimal purple fringing, with the trademark “smooth” (some would say soft) look of a digital SLR. The biggest negative for the E-330 is its price. Is it worth paying almost $1100 for the E-330 kit, when you can get a Canon Rebel XT with a lens or the very capable Olympus E-500 dual lens kit for $700? Would I, Jeff Keller, pay four hundred dollars more for a live view feature? Probably not. But, since I’m not the one shopping for a camera here, you need to decide if its worth the extra money (not to mention the tradeoffs) for this often useful feature.”
