I, like many others, am amazed at the clarity of the pictures, even after owning the camera over a year!!! I have invested in wide/tele lenses to increase the versitility of this great camera. I also purchased the FL-40 flash because of the coverage of the weak flash which is on most cameras of this type. Problems: Of course the lens cap is a bother falling off. There is no PC flash connection (but you can get a SPECIAL wire) for flashes other than OLYMPUS ($39). Sports/motion pics need to ...

I have used the 3030Z for a year now . . .my first digital camera.

I also purchased the macro and panoramic ...

I upgraded from my trusy old D-340L to the 3030 about 2 months ago and am loving it. This camera's got just about every feature you can imagine and takes excellent pictures.

I love my C3030. It is fast, versatile and most of all, it takes excellent image quality. There are so many camera's out there that I have tried and used and upon seeing, reading the reviews and trying, this is a great camera for the money. 3.3 mega pixel camera good enough for 8x10 prints! A perfect match with my Epson photo 870 printer. It has 32MB internal buffer that allows you to take 3.5fps which I think is much faster than it's rival, the Nikon 990. The body looks like an SLR ...

I had the camera fo 10 month, excellent pictures, easy to use (one hand is all you need).great depth of field, despite the fact that I could not duplicate the picture quality that Phil shpwed, I still do it all over. great in my practice for patients before and after photos. Problems: my beach pictures were slightly over exposed,and less color saturation, compared to in-doors, I might need to practice more!
