Question about Olympus Camedia C-3030 Zoom Digital Camera
Your camera is long discontinued so you basically have two choices. You can look for a used one on ebay or similar (but they'll all be old and potentially faulty) or you can buy a new replacement camera to fit your colposcope.
If, as I suspect, your camera has been using the Olympus CLA-1 lens adaptor which allows accessories to be attached to the front of the camera, then it's likely that all you need is a camera which has a 43mm filter thread. Unfortunately, many digital compact cameras either completely lack a filter thread or use non-standard sizes these days, but if you contact the major camera manufacturers' customer care teams to explain your requirements, they should be able to suggest a suitable model. I've tried searching on your behalf, but online specifications are frustrating as they usually fail to quote the filter thread size.
In the worst instance, you may need to spend more than is strictly necessary for your needs on a digital SLR and then buy a cheap step-down filter ring on eBay or Amazon (filter threads on SLR lenses are usually larger than 43mm).
You didn't mention the make and model of your colposcope, but it may also be worth contacting the device manufacturer as they may be able to suggest suitable current cameras and perhaps more importantly, which ones may be incompatible with your colposcope.
