Question about Olympus Camedia C-3030 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have an Olympus Camedia c3030 camera which is broken. Is there anyway I could get a new one, or, if not, what equivalent could I find. I have to mention the camera is attached to a colposcope, so the diameter of the objective should be the same (at the camera side). Thanks, Razvan Socolov

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.

Can I update firmware on an olympus camedia C5050z camera ?

The latest firmware is v83. (This firmware is only available from Olympus - you'll have to send the camera to Olympus for servicing to get the new firmware. It probably won't be worth the effort however.)

New laptop and cannot find disc to download software

As weird as it may seem Olympus do not make their disc available online in any format. You have to go back to the place you purchased the camera from. However, the software that comes with this camera is not necessary for the camera operation rather it provides picture management and editing software.
I would suggest using picasa as an alternative.
Please let me know how you get on.

I cant download my pictures from c3030 to my computer

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( ).

My C3030 digital Camera won't work w/Windows XP

The C3000(which I have) and C3030 are not directly supported by any version of Windows. You must either use the Camedia software to access the camera(via USB connection) or use an external Smartmedia card reader like a ZIO(I have one, it works great). Camedia 2.0 will work(with XP) but it will not allow you to select more than one picture at a time to download from the camera. I have heard that Camedia 2.5 fixes this problem with XP and it is available for purchase from the Olympus website. I decided to get the card reader instead of the new version of Camedia because I use Photoshop to do my editing. I believe only the latest Oly cameras(like the 3020) have direct support under XP. By this I mean when you connect the camera to the PC it shows up as a new drive letter. Hope this helps.
