DPReview’s in-depth hands-on preview of the Olympus PEN E-P3

with one comment

Andy Westlake and Richard Butler of DPReview gives you an extensive hands-on preview of the Olympus PEN E-P3:

The E-P3’s similarity of appearance to its predecessors could, all too easily, suggest that Olympus has again been subtle with its changes. But this isn’t the case at all, and the new model brings with it a whole raft of updates and refinements. Olympus has addressed many of the key criticisms of the older models, to the extent that we’d be tempted to say that the E-P3 is finally the camera that the PEN has always promised to be.

I’m always impressed with the utter depth and thoroughness of the reviews of the guys over at the Digital Photography Review website. Whenever I read any of the reviews from their site, it feels strangely enough as if I am about to read some sort of dissertation or a doctoral thesis–only, written in lay man’s terms. In other words, they write their reviews as if their very lives depend on it. Everything you ever wanted to know about every bit about the cameras they review is there. For me, DPReview is where you need to go on the net when you want to read greatly exhaustive camera reviews.

Too bad though, where it actually may matter, it would seem that the picture sample galleries for each camera reviewed usually fails to match the awesome quality of the written reviews. The way I see it, the pictures they show are not as interesting as the reviews themselves. In my opinion, the pictures in the reviews never live up to one’s expectations of the kind of images the cameras can do, and it can be a little bit of a let-down. One may be inclined to wonder, “Is this the only kind of picture that this camera can take?”

Great reviewers aren’t necessarily great photographers.
