Welcome Varna! APUG is a great sight to learn on, and have fun. The C3 is a great camera. I have one too! Yeah, that's it in my avatar pic, but the name badge was missing when I bought it, so I glued on a name plate pirated off a cheap 35mm Russian camera. (just to be confusing) I've taken some great photos with it, so get it serviced and enjoy it.
