I am interested in the Olympus EVOLT E-300 Digital SLR. I have read\nseveral threads about it here, and folks seem to have a fair amount to\nsay about the size of the E-300 image sensor. Now, I hate to get into\nany discussion of whether size alone matters, so suffice it to say that\nI think we can all agree that size is only one factor in performance.\n\nFor example, Olympus claims that their chip design has more effective\nimaging power because their chip is not 'Interline' in nature:\n\n[URL]http://www.olympusamerica.com/e1/feat_quality_ccd.asp[/URL]\n\nThe Olympus technology is "Vertical Charge Transfer Register" which\nmight mean the data comes off the CCD vertically vs. along little\npathways on the imaging area. This seems reasonable to me, but I do\nnot count CCD design engineer as one of my many talents, and I doubt\nanyone on this newsgroup does either.\n\nInstead, let's stipulate we are not smart enough to mentally simulate\nwhat this camera will do and instead the proof is really in the\nshooting, something that can only be done if you have the camera in\nyour hands vs. imagination.\n\nSorry for the Onanistic ramble, but here is your turn. If you own the\nE-300 and have a few minutes to share feedback, I'd love to read it.
