Dave tries out Olympus' low-cost, feature-packed 3 megapixel digicam...
I've had a lot of email asking about this one, as it took Olympus a little while to get me a unit to test. I've finished reviewing it though, and now (finally) have that review posted. The C-3020 is a replacement for Oly's very popular C-3000 model, long one of my favorite recommendations to friends looking for a good deal on a fully-featured digicam. The 3020 fills a niche with few real competitors, as a bargain-priced three megapixel camera, but one having a very full feature set.
About all that's missing relative to the higher-end C-3040 Olympus model is an external flash connection, and a bit less buffer memory. (Oh, and no sound recording for its movies.) It's a great "enthusiast" camera, as it has a raft of features like spot metering, aperture or shutter priority metering, and a full manual mode. Takes good pictures too, and the list price
is only $599. Check it out!
