Summary: snapshooter convenience, professional level images. easy to use in default, amazingly flexible(complicated) when you delve into features. lens seems a little fragile when extended, but linked optical/digital zoom with one button improves greatly on c-2020, which i also have.
Summary: This camera has incredible versatility. It allows for many pixel compressions of jpeg files, all of which are fine quality. In the 1st 3 weeks, I have taken over 1,000 photos of nature, travel, people, and objects.
Summary: First -- this is a good camera. The surprise is how fast the manual reads and how simple to follow the instructions are! Who knew? This is my first experience with a digital camera of any kind after 26 years in the darkroom working in cold water -- and what a treat.
Summary: Being a tech geek, I did a bit of research on the various websites and narrowed my choices between the Olympus 3030 and Nikon 9090. It seemed to be a toss up depending on which features you valued most. I chose the Olympus for a variety of reasons and haven't regretted my decision.
Summary: Being a Hardcore Filmaker and Photographer I was very impressed with the results from this intelligent little electronic wonder. At first glance the Black finish and size of the 3030 strongly resemble a traditional 35mm point and shoot.The 3030 uses Smart Media cards which I like very much for...
Pros: Very User Friendly & Extremely Good Quality Image Capturing
Summary: I had the predecessor to this camera the 2020Z. Great camera but I wanted audio capability. Everything I liked about the 2020Z is here and more. Its still compact (fits in pockets better than most), EASY on batteries, excellent colors, fast lens (2020Z is faster), fast shot recovery, wireless remote...
Summary: I've had my C3030 for months, now. It's so small I can take it everywhere--and I do. With it, I've taken great shots of daily scenes in and around Miami, FL. Having it makes street photography fun and easy. As for the C3030's image quality, no other digital camera, in its price range, outdoes it.
Summary: This is a very nice camera. I agree with Jim DuLaney on the shutter delay of digital cameras. I am use to the release on my Canon F-1 and A-1. However, you can shoot again while the camera is still recording the image to the SmartMedia Card.
Summary: I had a hard time deciding between the Olympus 3030 and the Nikon 990. In the end, I choose the Olympus because of the option of sound on the movie feature. (I bought the camera to take pictures of a new addition to the family.) I really like how easy it is to take basic pictures.
Summary: Bought this 3.1 megapixel camera about two years ago and the price for similar models is roughly half of what I paid. Takes excellent pictures and is fairly easy to use as a point and shoot camera.
