A really good camera, easy to handle. Very important: flash hot shoe and lens adapter included! Problems: Slow AF and zoom. No shutter priority mode, no 1024x768 mode. LCD color is slightly too red. No 1/1000 speed.

Awesome, just awesome. I puchased the 3000z about 2 months ago.One week after having the cam, I was off to Hawaii, which is mandatory if you live in ALASKA. Prior to leaving, I purchased a 128mb cf1 card and a B-300 Olympus 1.7 lens. I WAS VERY impressed with this camera ! Upon returning to ALASKA, I have purchased a EE optics 5x, Vivitar 285HV and a really nice tripod. With all the additional components, the 3000z really lives up to its TRUE potential. I have had no problems or ...

I USED THIS LITTLE CAMERA WITH MY STUDIO LIGHT & THE END RESULTS WERE AMAZING MUCH BETTER THEN SHOOTING POLOROID FOR TEST SHOOTS & LESS EXPENSIVE TO THE POINT THAT IT PAID FOR IT SELF WITHIN 5 MONTHS. RESOLUTION HOLDS WELL 4 8X10S Problems: A LITTLE SLOW FOR ZOOMING IN & OUT

These are my pros and cons that distinguish this cam from competitors and that I found essential. Pros: excellent performance in low-light conditions, perfect macro shots, manual white balance mode that really increases pictures quality, quick (in most cases) and easy interface with no hierarchical drop-down menus, AA-like cheep batteries and accumulators compatibility, ergonomics, included lens adapter and batteries charger, standard external flash mount, user manual quality, automatic ...

I was really hurry in buying a camera for my Paris holiday just before the x-mas. I was in a hurry and I ordered from internet and received the camera next day. I immediately began to practice with the camera and after a while I really was very comfortable with it. The LCD is good enough to use under any light condition. Menus are easy to use. Pictures are bright nad very good quality. Shutter reacts slow but if you first press halfway then no problem. I also use wide and tele extensions and ...

The company I work for needed a good camera for web development. I looked into many cameras in the price range, and came up with the PhotoPC 3000Z. It had excellent resolution, manual controls, and many other requirements. Upon getting it, I was impressed with the camera a great deal. The delay people talk about on the internet is only apparent if you press the shutter all the way, if you depress it half-way, it prepares to take the shot, and pressing it in takes the picture nearly instantly. ...

I had my heart set on the Nikon 990 but came across the Epson 3000Z which had more features - 10 second sound for each image and was about $200.00 cheaper. It also included 4 NimH batteries and a charger which the Nikon didn't. I have another set of batteries in my case but I can shoot a whole day without changing the batteries. I have used it on wedding assignments to get the images which the bride absolutely had to have. I loved the way I could come home after the park wedding coverage, ...

I bought this camera to take with me on vacation to Thailand. I did not have any time to "practice" with the camera before I left. After 6 days of shooting temples and markets and people, I am very happy with the quality of the pictures and the ease of which I am able to take a multitude of different kinds of shots (action, camera moving during shot, stills, etc) and get very good to excellent results. Problems: Major problem--lag time between pressing the shutter and actual shutter ...

I've shot several thousand photos already. I wanted something I could shoot, download and blow photos up to at least 11x17. I've blown some of my photos upto 13x19 and 16x20, printed them out on the Epson 1270 and dazzled other professional photographers (no pixelation). I've shot bridal photos and some shots have rivaled my Canon A2 film. I've shot alot of candids at rodeos and demoliton derbys. You can see these photos at caveart.com (the thumbnails from the epson start with ...

After weeks of searching and narrowing down the products, I was down to the 990, Olympus 3030Z and the Epson 3000Z.....the Epson was and still is the best buy with the most features.The others are excellent products but the Epson was a substantial camera, with a host of features that I wanted, and the ability to use add on lenses.
