“I've had this Olympus C-3030Z digital camera for about...”

Written on: 04/06/2004 by neilp (2 reviews written)

Good Points
- excellent lens and image quality, top of the range for compact 3 mega pixels
- good zoom range with 28mm wide angle
- smart media cards (cheap!)
- full manual, S and A priority modes (like a pro camera)

Bad Points
- a little on the bulky and ugly side
- takes about 1 second or so from turn on to being ready for use, some cameras may be faster than this

General Comments
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.

Shutter speed can go down to 16 seconds for night shots etc.

Built in flash is reasonable, you can adjust its brightness with menu options.

Picture quality is great. You can preview pictures you've taken, zoom out to thumbnails and also zoom right into the pictures you've taken.

Battery life is reasonable, I've now got some 2000 mAH NiMH AA batteries and these last a good while. Always have a spare set with you as you've no warning as to when the batteries are going to run out. (this is not a fault of the camera but moe a side effect of the NiMH battery type).

Only thing I'd say against it is that maybe it's getting on a little and there's probably newer cameras with a few more mega pixels and smaller size. Check out other Olympus models!!!
