Click on the E-10 to take a QuickTime VR tour
The Camedia E-10 has the features that professionals expect from an SLR, including Program Auto, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual exposure modes, a manual zoom and focusing ring on the lens barrel and a real focusing screen. The E-10 uses an Olympus-patented IR-active focus system for initial focus and a TTL passive focus for fine, accurate focus. Professionals will also appreciate the hot-shoe and PC flash connectivity for creative lighting.
Extremely easy to use, the Camedia E-10 offers one-touch buttons and dials as alternative
means to change program modes. Rather than navigate through layers of LCD menu commands,
the Camedia E-10 sports dedicated buttons to control shooting modes, flash, white balance
and media card settings. Aperture and shutter controls are set using dials, enabling
quick and easy access to a wide range of commonly used features and settings.
Camedia E-10 Features Overview
The E10 ships with a 32MB
Olympus SmartMedia memory card, two LB-01 (CR-3V) Lithium batteries, Olympus Camedia
Master 2.5 Utility Software for downloading images from the camera, Adobe Photoshop 5.0
LE image manipulation and creation software, Olympus Photoshop Plug-in for Raw files,
instruction manual, QuickStart Guide, lens cap and strap.
The E-10's all-aluminum body gives it durability and strength including the "Mirror Box,"
which acts as a heat sink to reduce the heat generated by the imager and the internal
electronics to improve the photographic quality.
We'll go into more detail on the controls and features on the next page.
The 1.8-inch adjustable high-resolution color LCD display swings between a 20° down
angle and a 90° up angle. It can be used to precisely frame subjects from any shooting
angle as well as previewing captured images and changing menu options.
