Olympus C-3000 Zoom review
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.
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.
