i got this olypus is3000 camera in 1994 and till today i have never lost a single photo, the best camera that i ever had and very simple to use. I still have it and it is in excellent condition. The only reason i now have to stop using it as because of the digital technology. i wish the same camera with all the features would come in the digital format. (read more)

I have been using an Olympus IS 3000 for the last so many years. It has given perfect service upto now, including wildlife photography. I do keep it in a dessicatior, since Sri Lanka is a very humid country. I think this saves me a lot on maintenance where the binoculars and cameras are concerned.

I purchased the Olympus IS-3000 35mm SLR camera in the year 2004 from Abu-Dhabi UAE, but I haven't used it. I have opened it in 2006. Unfortunately, there is no place for real cameras now, as everyone wants to have a digital camera, and the results of digital camera's is amazing, but I must say that the results of this are no less than any other on the market.

The Olympus IS-3000 is a very good camera for an amateur or begginer. This is my first camera and I have grown out of it after 2 years of heavy use. But still, it is great! Only broke once - but it was purely my fault- it fell on the concrete out of my bag and the display was cracked. But I managed to replace the display for 100$. The quality of the pictures is really good, though the maximum apperture f4.5 is not always enough. (read more)

The more recent IS models, as well as the models that preceded the 3000, cannot beat it. I am not keen on so-called "bridge" cameras though, they should make up their minds, whether to be a point-and-shoot compact or an SLR. If you are going to use this camera purely as a compact, then what use are features like exposure bracketing or multiple exposure facilities? If you are going to use this camera creatively as an SLR, then you will eventually become disappointed with its limitations. One... (read more)

One of the best Olympus products. For use anywhere, inside or outside. If you are looking for a camera that gets the pictures for you clearly, get it. I had it for almost three years, never had a single problem with it. (read more)

Make no mistake about it, this is a camera that can turn in some fine results. Ideal for travel or a day out when you don't want to be burdened with a full SLR system, but still want something that can give you real quality. The lens' definition is outstanding, as I suppose you might expect from the incorporation of ED elements. The great pity in my opinion is that the zoom range isn't something like 24-105mm or 28-135mm instead of 35-180. The wide end is never wide enough for me, although... (read more)

I got this Olympus IS3000 35mm SLR camera supplied by an insurance company to replace an old Minolta which was damaged and I have to say I'd never of chosen it myself. Having said that, it has always produced excellent results and been very easy to use. The lens is much better quality than most zooms and it has consistantly produced better prints than my Canon Eos 50 while also being easier to use. (read more)
