This is my first ever experience with (D)SLR. I chose this because I was interested with Olympus' sensor cleaner (SSWF), and designed for digital concept. And I really was happy with the fact that unlike my fellow other photographers, I didn't have to clean my sensor. The color, I think it is one of the best Oly product in term of color that I ever had. The brick design, later on these days I realised that it was the very first beginning of Olympus' evolution towards Olympus PEN Digital, ...

The E-300 is ok, and has an odd look about it, but the images are uninspiring...as is the handling. If you want old Kodak-sensor Oly...get the E-1 or E-400 (haven't tried the E-330).

Compared to some others I know it was a bit expensive at the time a bought it, but I consider it a very nice medium size reflex camera. When compared to my SP550z it's much faster but the image quality is relly poor as the 550 is fantastic. Problems: The image quality is much inferior than my SP550z, what was a bit frustrating when I bought it a couple of years ago.

I love it. I use this camera with 14-54 and 40-150/3.5-4.5, but also with macro 50/2. Great performance. Problems: Noise.

I am using my E-300 for about two and half years, and I'm very satisfying its perfomances. I have also E-330, but I'm still using E-300 for my main camera . The body is excellent solid build, and eyeview is enough blight (E-330 is little bit darker,I think ). You can take very impressive photos under the blue sky and duling twilight. The latitude of dark parts are very wide, so that I think this camera is good at high contrast situations. I recommend use 14-54 2.8-3.5 Lens with E-300 becaus ...

I have owned my E-300 with 14-45mm lens for about 18 months. A couple of months ago, I expanded the kit by buying the 40-150mm lens and Olympus remote. I have owned about a dozen SLRs and some compact cameras over the years - mostly Pentax and Nikons till this one. My girlfriend just read this and said, "There's nothing in there about your fabulous girlfriend, therefore it doesn't rate." So I will add this: LDB is the best girlfriend ever, and she is FABULOUS! What I like about the camera: Ex ...

Hi There I have had my E300 for about a year now have been very happy with it. I was considering changing the camera but bought the 14-54 lens instead, and this has given the camera a new lease of life. The camera is very responsive and easy to use, and gives good results with minimal effort. It would be a very good second hand buy, or new as the E330. Problems: I have had some issues with the auto white balance, but am going to set it manually (easy to do) in difficult conditions. At high ...

I use my E-300 since Jan 2005 and I'm still impressed with it. It's really great camera for amateur photographer. Replaced my 14-45/3.5-5.6 kit lens with a 14-54/2.8-3.5 and added a 35/3.5 Macro and a 40-150/3.5-4.5 telephoto lenses I'm fully satisfied with image sharpness, CA and distortions. I also recommend to buy an ME-1 (magnifying eyecup) to increase the viewfinder area. It helps composing frames more accurately and focusing manually. Very impressive! Even when printing 30x40 cm. Very ...

I've had the E-300 for about one year, and have used it for everything from vacation, to portrait, to nighttime sports photography. It is remarkably easy to use. The battery seems to last forever! For the money, you can't beat this camera as an amateur photographer. Picture quality is pretty good, although I expected less "softness" at normal default sharpness setting. I just bumped it up and fixed that though. I recommend going out and getting some better lenses than the kit lenses if you do ...
