The Olympus Evolt E-30 SLR Digital Camera is the ideal camera for photo hobbyists and serious digital photographers alike. The high resolution Live-MOS image sensor combined with the TruePic III+ processor gives you better color and quality with true-to-life skin tones, brilliant blue skies, precise color transitions, more detail and less image noise. The camera also features a 2.7" HyperCrystal II LCD enables images to be beautifully displayed in vivid color, even from 176-degree viewing angles or in bright sunlight, and the Autofocus Live View feature provides users with the choice of framing images with the viewfinder or on the LCD Display. In addition the Display flips out and swivels - making it simple to preview and review your images, even when shooting at an odd angle - the perfect tool for macro photography.

The E-30 makes it easy to shoot like a pro with 20 intuitive Scene Select Modes like Fireworks, Night Scene, Portraits and even underwater modes. Plus features like Face Detection, Shadow Adjustment Technology and In-body Image Stabilization ensure clear, crisp images in any shooting situation; while six Art Filters instantly provide your images a variety of creative looks. The E-30 also solves the dust problem commonly found with SLR Cameras by providing a proven anti-dust system so your pictures will be spotless - every time. 


  • On-screen Autofocus with Live View works as seamlessly as a point-and-shoot to display subjects, in focus, on the LCD the instant the shutter is pressed half way
  • The new Art Filters allow you to replicate dramatic effects as you shoot using the Autofocus Live View LCD
  • Tracks up to 8 faces and automatically focuses and optimizes exposures for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures
  • Shadow Adjustment Technology brings out more details in shadows. It captures scenes exactly as you see them, even in challenging situations - like when shooting a backlit subject
  • The 2.7-inch dual-axis, high-definition, Live View monitor swivels 270° so you can capture dramatic images, even at difficult-to-shoot angles
  • Express yourself by altering how you frame the world - choose from nine aspect ratios, from the standard 4:3 to the cinematic 16:9
  • The powerful 12.3-megapixel Live-MOS sensor means you'll capture more detail than ever before in your pictures
  • When it comes to measuring camera speed, autofocus is a key factor. Thanks to the new 14-54mm II lens with high-speed Imager AF, shooting with Live View is faster than ever - a key element in utilizing the new camera's art filters
  • In-Body Image Stabilization is a state-of-the-art technology, preventing camera shake for blur free photography
  • Every time you turn on the E-520, the Supersonic Wave Filter - located between the shutter and the image sensor - silently vibrates an amazing 30,000 times per second
  • Settings like Manual, Program, Aperture and Shutter Speed Priority allow for full manual control of the camera for advanced creative shooting
  • With the E-30's various camera controls, depending on the shooting situation, Program Camera Control automatically adjusts settings - such as the optimum aperture value and shutter speed
  • The remote release allows the user to take pictures over long exposures without shaking the camera
  • With the E-30, there are five Metering Modes: Digital ESP metering, Center weighted averaging metering and three types of spot metering
  • The E-30 is equipped with an internal Digital Level Sensor that detects the camera's pitch and roll and indicates it in the optical viewfinder on the control panel and during Live View operation
  • In-Body AF Focus Adjustment lets you use the AF Sensor (when set to Hybrid AF or AF Sensor) to fine-adjust the focusing position to a range of +/- 20 steps
  • The E-30 is compatible with the Olympus FL-50R and FL-36R wireless electronic flashes that are designed exclusively for digital photography
  • Accepting Compact Flash Type I & II, UDMA, Microdrives and xD-Picture Cards, the E-30 provides a choice of data storage options for enhanced flexibility and it is possible to transfer image files from one card to the other right inside the camera
