Olympus C-3000 Zoom


The Olympus C-3000 Zoom ($800 street) is a dead ringer for the Olympus C-3030 Zoom (First Looks, May 23)—same extensive features and excellent image quality. But the C-3000 Zoom is $200 cheaper, making it a great value in this category. Shooting the...

Great picture quality, very durable


We've had this camera for 4 years. At the time of purchase, 3.3 megapixel was the highest you can get, and frankly, camera technology hasn't progressed as fast as it used to, so the 3.3 is still a pretty high-end camera. There are three capture ...

Great photo quality. Very reliable.

Eats batteries for snacks. Stock up on AAs or rechargeables.

A truly great deal for a GREAT digital camera!!!


Almost two years ago, I purchased an Olympus C-3000 zoom digital camera. My wife and I were going to go on vacation and I wanted to be able to take some pictures while there. I have not had any regrets on buying this camera. Except maybe I didn't get ...

Numerous auto and manual settings, great picture quality, video with sound.

Only 8" macro, comes standard with 8mb SM card, small zoom for today's camera's

Best Bang for the Buck


I've owned the Olympus C-3000 for over a year now and have taken close to a thousand or more pics with it. With each use of the camera it gets easier to use. At first all the controls and menus it has was daunting but now I realize I wouldn't want a...

Picture Quality, Battery Life, Ease of Use

Too many menus, Button to view last shot taken

Olympus, the most bang for your buck


I LOVED this camera. I owned this camera for a year and a half until my ex-husband took it in my divorce. One of the things that were great about this camera is it feels heavy and sturdy in your hand. It had a rough coating on the side handle so you...

Sturdy, Remote Control, Large LCD Display, Digital Zoom, 3.34 Mega Pixel

Large pictures take up more room on the smart card

Happy Shutter-bug


The camera was in new condition even though it had been refurbished. All the controls are easy, the average point and shoot person will not even need to read instructions. However once your begin to read the manual you will find a ton of extra, easy...

Funky Windows Software, small memory card, lens cap
