Just got this camera off Ebay for only $20.00 and that included a 64MB card. The cards alone are selling at a premium price, so I might part with this camera and resell ir using better marketing techniques and make a big profit.So far it's been good to make spare money :) But I might keep this camera as it seesms to do well even though it's over 8 years old.

Well, I bought this camera in July 2001, I've since owned 3 other digicams and the C-3000 still gives the best image. The colours are natural, noise is minimal in most situations. The focusing is excellent too. There are manual options when you need them and point & shoot mode when you don't have time. I never print bigger than 8x10 anyway so a 3 megapixels camera is fine for my needs. Problems: The only drawback now is that SmartMedia cards are no longer available.

Worst thing i ever did was give my c-3000 away. To Date; i have not found a non-SLR that even comes close. If you have one KEEP IT! It does great 8x10s and you will never been happy with photos from another camera even with a higher pixel-count. Problems: If you want rechargable batts you will have to get Rechargable AAs. They also make a single lithium batt for it which last a long time but again is not rechargable.

Well after 6 years of use it's still ticking along. I've got a Canon DSLR and and Olympus 8080...but if you process the pics from this little 3.3mp camera right, for net use and for up to 8x10's it's excellent. Never regretted buying it (although at the time not cheap, looking in hindsight) I've seen good used ones today for under $100 and that's a steal. The battery drain isn't too bad..can get 100 pics or a few more on a set of NM's. Pretty good internal flash...and provisions for adding ...

I bought this camera in September 2000 for just over $600. At the time, 3 Megapixel compact cameras were new and this was a top performer at a reasonable price - my best choice in 2000. Over its lifetime, its has given me excellent picture quality in a wide range of lighting conditions. Since I never print images larger than 8 1/2" x 11" page, the 3 Megapixel size continues to be sufficient. It has proven to be quite sturdy as well. Over the 4 1/2 years of use, it has been dropped a few ...

Bought this camera in 2001. It performed good quality sharp images. I used the camera for pictures wich I had printed in brochures and magazines. This was a succes when I did not enlarge more than to A4. At that time I payed over $1200 fot this camera. I used an external flash with a connecting-cable. This was also an expensive attribute, but so I could avoid red eyes and used bounce-flash. Since one year I have a Canon G5 of wich I think it has more possibilities, but at that time The ...

this camera (2001) is excellent compare to the 2004 cameras, I just bought a casio exilim ez-40 and I had to take it back because, the image quality was too bad. So I changed it for the canon s60 (I can not make a mistake) and again I took back the s-60. The C3000 is better for the AF, the WB, the lens is sharper, and the noise/ratio at 400 ISO much much much much much better. Problems: battery short, slow, the cap

My mother in law purchased this camera when it was first released so I had some experience with it before I purchased mine. Quite simply I feel in love with the camera's picture quality. For a 3.3MP, the colors are pretty true even in standard quality res. I purchased mine from Ebay in gently used condition for $200 with lots of extras and I am extremely satisfied. Problems: It's not really a problem, but the camera has a lot automatic features that seem a little complicated. I am still an ...

I was given this camera 2 1/2 years ago as a gift. I've shot a lot of film, but it was my first digital camera. The image quality can be superb under the right conditions. The camera has a lot of flexibility, but some of it is a real pain to use, compared to an old SLR. I have gotten some superbly sharp, brilliantly colored photos with this camera, every bit the equal of images from my old film cameras. Problems: I've read the reviews of this camera, but not much else on this board. I've ...

Bought the camera 3 years ago after I used a 35 mm Reflexcamera for 2 decades. From the first picture I took, I was amazed by the gret image quality and the features. Even now I discover some nice features. This camera is really value for its money. All my friends are amazed with the quality of my pictures after every trip I make during the holidays. Problems: When the batteries are flat, the lens doesn't return anymore to its starting position which can be quite disturbing when no 'fresh' ...
