Olympus E-430

Rumors and photos of an alleged Olympus E-430 have surfaced on the web. The E-430 would most likely serve as a step-up to the outdated E-330. If this is true, it may be a sign of things to come for the E-410 and E-510 successors. Interestingly, the E-430 would go a long way in bridging the gap between the E-330 and E-410. Maybe Olympus has the idea of consolidating its camera line? Other than the unique body design, some of the headline features are as follows:

  • New 12MP Live MOS sensor and TruePic III processor
  • CCD-shift image stabilization
  • Live View
  • Flip-out and up 2.5″ TFT LCD monitor
  • Faster USB interface (‘real’ USB 2.0 speed)
  • Wired remote option
  • Slightly higher continuous shooting frame rate and larger raw buffer

Stay tuned to this page for the latest news and rumors on the Olympus E-430.


2/18/08: Camera Town reports that this rumor looks like a hoax.  I tend to agree.  Read the post on Camera Town for more.

Well the specs don’t seem unreasonable, but I think the camera is a bit far-fetched and bears no resemblance to anything Olympus has ever put out – including the recently released E-3.

I get it from Olympus itself, this is a hoax.

Image looks photoshoped…
anyways, wouldn’t the name 430 suggest that it’s higher end than the 420?

Nu replacements for E420 en 520. There is a new body comming though. It wil be placed between E520 en E30.

No micro four third release at PMA. But June this year.
