The Olympus C-3000 Zoom is a self-contained color digital camera system, produced by the Olympus Optical Co., Ltd.

Features

The C-3000 Zoom offers a 3× optical zoom lens, support for SmartMedia storage, and a 3.3 megapixel, 1/1.8-inch CCD image sensor. The camera supports automatic "point-and-shoot" type photography (P Setting), as well as three manual modes (S - Shutter Priority, A - Aperture Priority, and M - Fully Manual). It supports lighting color correction (Flash, Sunlight, Clouds, Incandescent, Fluorescent, and Automatic). The camera supports an external flash via a proprietary connector and bracket, however it does not provide a hotshoe on the camera. The camera may be operated conventionally, fired via a remote control, fired by time delay, or fired-by-wire via software such as Cam2Com [1]. The camera features F-Stop settings ranging from F2.8 to F11, and exposure settings from 1/800 to 16 seconds. The camera is powered by 4 AA alkaline batteries, 4 AA rechargeable batteries (NiMH) or 2 CR-V3 primary batteries.

One can take photos in a SHQ (Super High Quality) mode. It offers QuickTime Movie capture at 15 fps with sound. Sound can be recorded during video filming or a 4-second sound bite can be recorded for play with a single image. There are five small holes just above the lens on the right; this is the microphone.

SmartMedia

SmartMedia

SmartMedia is an obsolete flash memory card standard owned by Toshiba, with capacities ranging from 2 MB to 128 MB. The format mostly saw application in the early 2000s in digital cameras and audio production. SmartMedia memory cards are no longer manufactured.

AA battery

AA battery

The AA battery is a standard size single cell cylindrical dry battery. The IEC 60086 system calls the size R6, and ANSI C18 calls it 15. It is named UM-3 by JIS of Japan. Historically, it is known as D14 or HP7 in official documentation in the United Kingdom, or a pen cell.

Nickel–metal hydride battery

Nickel–metal hydride battery

A nickel metal hydride battery is a type of rechargeable battery. The chemical reaction at the positive electrode is similar to that of the nickel–cadmium cell (NiCd), with both using nickel oxide hydroxide (NiOOH). However, the negative electrodes use a hydrogen-absorbing alloy instead of cadmium. NiMH batteries can have two to three times the capacity of NiCd batteries of the same size, with significantly higher energy density, although much less than lithium-ion batteries.

Sound bite

Sound bite

A sound bite or soundbite is a short clip of speech or music extracted from a longer piece of audio, often used to promote or exemplify the full length piece. In the context of journalism, a sound bite is characterized by a short phrase or sentence that captures the essence of what the speaker was trying to say, and is used to summarize information and entice the reader or viewer. The term was coined by the U.S. media in the 1970s. Since then, politicians have increasingly employed sound bites to summarize their positions.

Limitations

The C-3000 Zoom, as with most consumer single-chip digital cameras, suffers from half-resolution imaging in the blue channel. Images taken of blue subjects will be unsuitable for use at the full 3.3 megapixels and will require downsampling. It does not support RAW image format. Also, the camera does not officially support the USB Storage class, which inherently means it must be driven using a camera control driver provided by Olympus or use the preexistent Microsoft Windows driver uncommenting a Line in the driver file.
