We’re pleased to present a short video tour of the Olympus E-3. This demonstrates the E-3’s design, controls, screen and Live View system.

There’s no need to download any new software – just press the play button in the middle of the screen below and wait for the video to start; you may need to press the button twice. The quality and any delay before playing may vary depending on your internet connection.

Good points

Tough build quality, dust and splash-proof.
Effective built-in anti-shake and anti-dust.
Live View with fully-articulated screen.
Quick handling and broad customisation.

Bad points
Higher noise above 800 ISO than rivals.
AF system fast but often searched.
Some controls illogically placed.
Very tough rival in the Nikon D300.
