When we say the E-1 is "the first 100% all-digital SLR system built from the ground up," we mean it.
Along with unrivalled digital technologies, the E-1 features an unparalleled design built to professional standards and specifically for digital photography, manufactured not to simply withstand the rigors of every day use with style and sophistication, but to conquer them as such for years to come.
The body is made of magnesium alloy metal, making the E-1 an extremely durable digital SLR that was born for day-in and day-out use, and one so comfortable and lightweight you'll want to take it on every photographic journey you embark on. The alluring black finish and ergonomic shape gives the E-1 the look and feel that's so important to a quality camera you can trust with your most intimate creative expressions. We've designed the lens mount, buttons, dials, shutter release button, and shutter to function with precision under even the most continuous of demands. Dust-free technology removes any dust or debris that can settle on the image sensor to further help protect the camera. And making sure we left no stone unturned, all-weather construction protects your E-1 from the elements, ensuring it will continue to deliver outstanding image results time and time again.
