|With its amazing image quality, the C-1400L had a major impact on the digital single-lens reflex camera market. Olympus made this camera the starting point for the development of a series of fixed-lens digital single-lens reflex cameras with high-performance zoom lenses. In 2003, it moved into the exchangeable-lens digital single-lens reflex market. While competing manufacturers remained bound to their existing 35mm single-lens reflex cameras, Olympus began to develop compact, high-performance lens systems designed specifically for digital cameras and based on the Four Thirds System. For its cameras, it introduced full-frame CCDs with wide dynamic ranges and enhanced gradation. This approach led to the creation of high-quality exchangeable-lens single-lens reflex cameras that would impress even professional photographers. Olympus also introduced a dust reduction system to solve the problem of specks in images caused when the CCD image sensors are contaminated by dust and other foreign material entering the camera during lens changes. This innovation has been warmly welcomed by the market as an excellent answer to a problem that was previously seen as a fatal flaw in digital single-lens reflex cameras with exchangeable lenses.
