Cathy I just got it and have not used it that much. The price has 
gone down to $ 399  It also came with Adobe Photoshop Elements 
(software). I also like to take nature pictures and liked the 10x 
optical zoom. You need a tripod at that setting.

I have a Minolta and a Cannon SLR film camera.

For those that have a digital and a film camera I have a question. 
How many times have you looked at pictures you have taken a year ago?

For me none on film and all the time on digital. I have a MY Pictures 
screen saver running

The 3000 was purchased before the 3020 or 3040 came out. The 3000 is 
a 3.3 MP and the C-700 is a 2.1 MP. A 3.3 MP TIF picture is over 11 
megs in size. I don't need that. A 1 meg jpeg picture prints out a 
8x10 just fine for me. 

Sales people always push for a higher price item. Buy what you need. 
I don't think the even make 16 megs cards any more, too cheep.
