Olympus OM-D Digital Cameras
Anyone interested in Olympus digital cameras should take a look at the micro four-thirds models. Olympus OM-D digital cameras bridge the gap between compacts and DSLR cameras, with smaller camera bodies and interchangeable lenses.Mirrorless Micros
The advantage of the micro four-thirds design is that with no need to make room to install a mirror box, as the camera body can be much smaller and handier than a traditional DSLR. Interchangeable lenses mean that you can tailor the camera for the photographs you're taking in a matter of moments. With the same class of sensors as many DSLRs, the image quality is just as good, and the body itself is lighter, which makes a difference when you're filling that camera bag. There may not be as many lenses available for the OM-D as DSLRs now, but that's sure to change.Viewfinders
Electronic advances are the key to the Olympus OM-D; rather than the traditional optical viewfinders found in DSLR cameras, the OM-D features an electronic viewfinder that uses the system's image sensor rather than a set of split optics to let you see exactly what's in your lens. It's something that has only been possible since the development of advanced sensors and rendering engines and Olympus takes full advantage of it.Power Saving
The more features you pack into a digital camera, the more power it uses. Olympus OM-D digital cameras with auto power save automatically turn off power-hungry features like the rear screen when you aren't using them. It's one way to make sure your camera is ready to go when you are.Options
If you like the OM-D but want something closer to the retro rangefinder style in appearance, you can always check out Olympus PEN cameras. Using the same range of sensors and lenses, these cameras offer equivalent performance in a slightly different style.
