I've had this Olympus C-3030Z digital camera for about 3 years now and it's done me proud. I've taken thousands of pictures over the years and have generally had very good results from this camera. It can be as easy or as difficult to use as you want it, from simple P automatic mode to more advanced shutter and aperature priorities.

I purchased the Olympus C-3030Z Digital Camera when it first came available.

Olympus certainly gets an A+++ rating on this on. (read more)

The Olympus C3030Z is a great digital camera. I've had mine for over a year - no problems. Takes 4 AA batteries. I got a 64 meg memory card to replace the 16 meg it came with. This gives me capacity to store about 80 high resolution pictures. The software is very easy to use and images can be downloaded to a PC very quickly.

Only downsides -... (read more)
