First Look overview posted for Olympus EVOLT E-330|

As the only current removable-lens digital SLR with a live LCD preview, the Olympus EVOLT E-330 is sure to draw some attention.
Many users moving up from all-in-one digital cameras to digital SLRs miss the ability to frame their shots on an LCD viewfinder. The new Olympus E330 solves that problem with some tricky optics and a second, dedicated viewfinder CCD.
We've had hands-on with a prototype, and Editor Shawn Barnett and Publisher Dave Etchells recorded a video walkthrough of the camera to explain some of its operation. Shawn also wrote a User Report, after spending a couple of days shooting with the new camera, describing some of its strengths and foibles. The sample we saw was only a prototype, so we can't share any images from it with you, but we think you'll find this an intriguing new wrinkle in the d-SLR field.
