Olympus C-3000 Zoom review

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 Olympus C-3000 was the best digital
compact one could get.


Skin tones are not so well performed: people look like wax images
(Madame Tussaud) buttons are rather small and do not have
quick-acces possibilities.
Batteries are empty soon. You should always take a spare set.
External flash only with expensive connecting-cable
Lost lens cap after two weeks.
