Olympus E-430 DSLR
Olympus will drop a new digicam called the E-430 and the specs have now surfaced the net. The E-430 would follow in the wake of the E-410, and rely on a new, 12-megapixel Live MOS sensor, paired with a TruePic III processor. As described, it would also have a “real” (faster) USB 2.0 interface; the camera’s most striking feature, however, may be its warped upper frame, which even distorts the shape of the pop-up flash housing.
The camera additionally has a wired remote connection, and a 2.5-inch flip-out LCD that supports Olympus’ recent Live View technology. Image quality is enhanced by a CCD-shift stabilizer, and a “slightly higher” continuous shooting speed should be matched by a larger buffer. No prices or release dates have been mentioned.
