Olympus dishes up new E-30 SLR

Looking for a new mid-range SLR? Olympus just outed its 12.3 megapixel E-30. Come and take a peek, and see if we can’t tempt your trigger finger.

OK, so we’re not talking super specs here. This is a traditional DSLR with an 11-point autofocus system and a maximum ISO of 3,200.

There’s none of the fancy movement-tracking wizardry of Panasonic’s latest Lumix, or the megapixel superpowers of Leica’s new snapper, but there’s still plenty to grab your attention, and without a price tag to scare the bank manager too.

For a start, there’s Live View so you won’t have to squint through the viewfinder. There’s also a burst mode snapping five shots a second. And last but not least, there’s the pounds and pence.

Olympus is hawking the E-30 for $1,299 on the other side of the pond. That’s just over £800 in proper money.
