$900.00 to $1,330.00



The Olympus E-3 is the company’s flagship DSLR model, delivering the ultimate in performance and features at an attractive price. This 10 megapixel camera features a full time live mode, as well as a weather-proofed body and dust reduction technologies. The Olympus E-3 also has some of the fasted auto-focus speeds in the industry when used with the company’s new Zuiko Digital lenses and their Supersonic WaveDrive motors. And unlike almost every other DSLR out there, the E-3’s bright 2.5-inch LCD is articulated, allowing for shots even at the most awkward angles.Minimize

Panasonic DMC-GH1 with 14-140mm lens

$1,159.00 to $2,016.00



The LUMIX GH1 features the Live View Finder system which enables something that simply is not possible with conventional DSLR cameras – the ability to preview the effects of camera settings (e.g., exposure, aperture, shutter speed) before taking the photo. This helps take the guesswork out of the camera setting process and helps users ensure that every photo they capture comes out exactly as they envisioned.Minimize
