Studio scene comparison (higher sensitivity)

As well as shooting our studio test scene at each camera's lowest sensitivity we also shot it at ISO 800 (or the maximum). As you can see from the 100% crops below the E-300 loses some detail at this higher sensitivity (it is above the 'recommended' sensitivity for the CCD), the best results are from Canon's CMOS sensor both on the six megapixel EOS 300D and the eight megapixel EOS 20D. The C-8080 WZ keeps its image fairly clean but loses a lot of detail to heavy noise reduction.

Olympus E-300, ISO 800
Canon EOS 300D, ISO 800
Nikon D70, ISO 800
Canon EOS 20D, ISO 800
Olympus C-8080 WZ, ISO 400 (maximum)

Dispongo de esta camara entre otras y puedo asegurar que como eel sensor CCD no hay de igual, tengo camaras con sensores C-MOS, pero el resultado final es diferente, disparar con la E-300, es como hacerlo con pelicula/negativo, mucha mas fidelidad a lo rel, aunque la resolucion no sea la de que se dispone hoy en dia en camaras de gama media, aconsejo hacer las pruebas.


The Olympus E-300 functions far more like a DSLR in terms of shot to shot recording rate, but still a bit slow when contrasted with Canon and Nikon’s sub-$1,000 offerings. The E-300 will capture subsequent images with just .59 seconds between. This remains slightly behind the XT’s .33 seconds and the D70’s .35 seconds recording rate, but still far beyond most compact models.
