The E-30 is for photographers looking to turn ordinary moments into
extraordinary masterpieces. Autofocus Live View with Multiple
Exposure shooting lets you create artistic effects in-camera. Six
Art Filters instantly give your images a variety of creative looks.
Features like Face Detection, Shadow Adjustment Technology and
In-body Image Stabilization ensure clear, crisp images in any
shooting situation. It all adds up to a DSLR for photographers who
want to express themselves more artistically.
New to the E-30, is technology that conveniently helps you
transform a basic image that faithfully represents the scene into
an image that carries emotional impact. The new Art Filters take
this expressive ability to a higher level, replicating six dramatic
effects as you shoot using the Autofocus Live View LCD. Pop Art:
Enhances colors, making them more saturated and vivid, creating
high-impact pictures that express the joyful, lighthearted feeling
of the Pop Art style of the 1960s. Soft Focus: Creates an ethereal
atmosphere that renders subjects in a heavenly light without
obscuring details. Pale & Light Color: Encloses the foreground
of an image in flat gentle light and pastel colors reminiscent of a
flashback scene in a movie. Light Tone: Renders shade and highlight
areas softly to lend an elegant air to the subject. Grainy Film:
Evokes the feeling of documentary footage shot in monochrome with
grainy, high-contrast film. Pin Hole Camera: Reduces the peripheral
brightness of an image as though it were shot through a pin hole,
connecting the viewer intimately with the subject at the center of
Two innovative technologies merge to create a unique digital
experience. The advanced Live View Autofocus works as seamlessly as
a point-and-shoot to display subjects, in focus, on the LCD the
instant the shutter is pressed half way. And the Swivel Live View
LCD enables photographers to hold the camera away from their face
and at angles they cannot easily reach by using the optical
viewfinder alone. During composition, settings like white balance
and exposure can be selected, and their impact is seen instantly on
the LCD, thanks to Live View. Real-time monitoring offers amazing
versatility and creative control.
Shoot up to four images in one frame in both the Live View and
optical viewing modes. More evidence that Olympus is the undisputed
leader in Live View technology, the E-30’s Live View Autofocus now
has a Multiple Exposure feature. Now you can take your best shot
and combine it with another great shot right on the camera’s LCD.
Multiple Exposure overlays an image with multiple frames and saves
it on a single image. For example, shoot a silhouette of a child
against a sunset sky, then overlay a shot of a portrait of the
child to create a lasting memory. The creative possibilities are
endless and only limited by your imagination. You can also overlay
up to four RAW images after shooting with this innovative feature.
It’s art created on the fly.
Face Detection is an innovative technology that can track up to
eight faces within the image area and automatically focuses and
optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures. Shadow
Adjustment Technology compensates for extreme contrast when
shadowed areas lack visible detail. Shadow Adjustment Technology
adjusts the exposure in the shadows while retaining all the detail
in the bright areas. This technology works automatically when using
Face Detection Mode, Live View and in Scene-Select Modes.
Unlike others with fixed LCDs, the new camera’s 100 percent
accurate 270 degree swivel 2.7-inch Live View HyperCrystal LCD can
be rotated freely so photographers can compose at tough angles,
including overhead and down low, without feeling like a
contortionist. Because Live View enables an E-30 photographer to
communicate face-to-face with subjects and still have everything in
the frame with the camera body out of the way, an encouraging smile
or wink of the eye can be used with a shy or nervous subject to get
the desired results.
Since photography is a form of expression that is essentially based
on clipping a scene, framing is an important component of style.
The E-30 provides nine aspect ratios including the standard 4:3, as
well as 16:9 for impressive, cinematic-style images, and 6:6, which
is available with medium format cameras, plus 3:2, 5:4, 7:6, 6:5,
7:5 and 3:4. By selecting the aspect ratio before shooting and
easily reviewing images on the LCD throughout the shoot, the
Multi-Aspect function adds a new means of expression to your ph
