E-30 Features

  • Autofocus
    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.
  • Multiple Exposure
    With the new camerafs Multiple Exposure function it is possible to alter space and time by combining images shot in different locations and moments, lending your photos another dramatic dimension. You can either combine the images in playback mode; or, thanks to the new TruePic III+ Image Processor, you can compose, capture and combine your images on the fly directly on the camerafs LCD.
  • Art Filters
    The new Art Filters allow you to replicate dramatic effects as you shoot using the Autofocus Live View LCD.
  • Face Detection
    Tracks up to 8 faces and automatically focuses and optimizes exposures for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.
  • Shadow Adjustment Technology
    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.
  • LCD Display
    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. The HyperCrystal II™ wide-angle display, with 360-degree articulation, makes composition and image viewing possible at any angle.
  • Aspect Ratios
    Express yourself by altering how you frame the world -- choose from nine aspect ratios, from the standard 4:3 to the cinematic 16:9. By selecting an 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 photography.
  • Live-MOS sensor
    The powerful 12.3-megapixel Live-MOS sensor means you'll capture more detail than ever before in your pictures. And you'll have the flexibility to crop and still produce large, detailed prints.
  • 11-point imager
    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fs art filters. And AF accuracy is further ensured by precise 11-point imager AF with the 12.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor.
  • In-Body Image Stabilization
    In-Body Image Stabilization is a state-of-the-art technology, preventing camera shake for blur free photography. Built into the camera body using the SWD motors, this image stabilization works with all Four Thirds and Zuiko Digital lenses from the 8mm fisheye (16mm equivalent in 35mm photography) to the 300mm super telephoto (600mm equivalent) for handheld shots. Shoot in low light and slower shutter speeds without worry.
  • Dust Reduction
    The Olympus dust reduction system is an industry first and a proven technology. Every time you turn on the E-30, the Supersonic Wave Filter™ — located between the shutter and the image sensor – silently vibrates an amazing 30,000 times per second. Dust is flung away and collected so it can't come back.
  • Full Manual Control
    Settings like Manual, Program, Aperture, and Shutter Speed Priority allow for full manual control of the camera for advanced creative shooting. Yet the E-30 can also be set to Auto so you can easily capture beautiful images.
  • Program Camera Control
    With the E-30fs various camera controls, depending on the shooting situation, Program Camera Control automatically adjusts settings – such as the optimum aperture value and shutter speed – according to the subject brightness, or the optimum shutter speed for the aperture value you have selected.
  • Remote Release
    The remote release allows the user to take pictures over long exposures without shaking the camera. Additionally, it offers the possibility of locking the release button for bulb exposure.
  • Five Metering Modes
    With the E-30, there are five Metering Modes: Digital ESP metering, Center weighted averaging metering, and three types of spot metering. With the E-30, you can select the most suitable mode for the shooting condition.
  • Digital Level Sensor
    The E-30 is equipped with an internal Digital Level Sensor that detects the camerafs pitch and roll and indicates it in the optical viewfinder on the control panel, and during Live View operation. This Digital Leveler is a tremendous benefit to landscape and architectural photographers who must ensure that images they take of scenes or buildings are as true as the walls of the buildings themselves. Rather than spend time rotating an image in computer software, you can use the new camerafs Digital Leveler to make sure your subjects are where they should be in the frame.
  • In-Body AF Focus Adjustment
    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.
  • Wireless Electronic Flashes
    The E-30 is compatible with the Olympus FL-50R and FL-36R wireless electronic flashes that are designed exclusively for digital photography. Gain remote control of up to 200 flashes divided into as many as 3 groups for easy camera controlled wireless flash, without needing an external commander unit.
  • Data Storage
    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.
