"Live View: Not the same as E-330"5.0 starson by peterburian
Pros: ? Camera still in development stage
Cons: ? Hard to say; camera is in development stage
Summary: While both the DMC-L1 and Olympus E-330 provide a live preview on the LCD monitor, the cameras are quite different in this respect.
The E-330 has a Full Time Live View mode (using a second sensor in the body) not available with the DMC-L1.
The cameras do share one Live View mode (using the new Panasonic nMOS sensor), called "Macro", not described in the CNET Preview. (Uses mirror lock-up; manual focus only.)
Since the Panasonic camera is in the development stage, it's impossible to rate it.
