Why Olympus?
You’re about to make a decision. Olympus?
Or some other brand? Naturally, we think it should
be Olympus.
Camedia E-10 SLR
We could point out that in 1920, we gave Japan its
first microscope. Our long experience with optics has
resulted in the clearest, most distortion-free lenses
the world has ever known. And the quality of the
lens is the single most important factor in
determining the quality of your picture.
But it goes beyond that. It has more to do with the
all-consuming dedication to excellence that produced
those advanced optics in the first place. The dedication
that has driven the company from the very beginning.
Our dedication can be seen in the long string of
innovations we’ve introduced over the years. It can be
seen in the extreme level of performance, durability
and ease of use that’s in every Olympus product. And
most importantly, it can be seen in your pictures.
We suggest you research your decision carefully.
Consider what you’ll get for your money. Money's too
hard to earn to waste a single dollar. Then make a
good decision.
And of course, if you end up going with Olympus
this time, you’ll find that next time, you won’t really
have a decision to make.

camera that was designed from the very

The E-10 SLR was born out of our
desire to develop a truly digital camera.
One in which all components were

designed to work together to deliver ultra
high-resolution digital photographs.

Photographers demand a lot from their cameras. So do we. We designed the E-10
SLR with features that make you want to reach for it every day, along with the durability
that makes it tough enough to be used every day.
If you’re serious about your pictures, this is the digital camera that will finally allow
you to capture the photos you’ve always wanted.
The all-aluminum body performs two important functions. It acts as
a heat sink to keep the high-resolution CCD cool and keep electronic
noise out of your pictures. And it provides the strength to make the
