Lens

Lens:
"I agree with many of the other reviewers, the lens cap and the grinding noise that the camera makes it you attempt to turn it on without removing the lens cap is somewhat of a minor annoyance."
_
"Problems:* the lens extends when you turn the camera on, this is a problem when the lens cap is on because the motor will grind."
_
"If you do buy this camera make sure you get a lens mount extender as you can damage the lens motor if you accidentally turn on the camera with the lens cap on (motor makes a grinding noise).This camera eats alkaline batteries, so you'll also need to get 4 NiMH batteries and a fast charger."
_
"However, while generally very satisfied, I do have some complaints as follows: 1) The lens cap falls off FAR too easily."
_
"However, given the price of the camera, it's relative ease of use, it's features and the quality of the pictures that it delivers, the lens cap situation is not a terrible over annoyance."
_
"Lens cap is easy to loose and you must remember to take it off before turning on the camera or lens motor will grind."
_
"However, while generally very satisfied, I do have some complaints as follows: 1) The lens cap falls off FAR too easily."
_
"My lens cap has not been a problem."
_
"As other reviewers have mentioned, due to the quality lens on the camera, the camera body is pretty large, and in need of a bit of protection when packing it."

Manual

Manual:
"Despite the TERRIBLE manual directions that come with the camera, I've learned all I need to know."
_
"The manuals for the camera and software,however, are painfully inadequate."
_
"Only complaint I have with it is that you must read the manual to know how to operate it--menu is not easy to understand on your own."
_
"The printed manual is inadequate, but the manual on the CD included is excellent."
_
"A couple of other positives about the C-3020 that other reviews may not have mentioned: (1) Olympus backs the camera with a full one-year parts AND labor warranty (Sony only does 90 days for labor, and trust me, their labor charge is ridiculously high); and (2) there is a very good camera manual contained on the CD ROM, in addition to the shorter printed manual."
_
"Bottom line: if you want a quality, mid-priced 3-plus megapixel digicam that takes beautiful 8 x 10s (indoors or out) and is easy to use yet has enough manual adjustment options for creative photography, then you can't go wrong with the C-3020."
_
"I would recommed people to learn to use the manual mode."
_
"It is a nice feature for people do not want to go through manual mode."
_
"This one is really easy to use (especially for basic functions such as still photos, use of zoom, photo viewing, and file transfer) and the manual is well-written and easy to understand."
