    I’m really enjoying my new Nikon Coolpix S3000 camera. Although, I have a very nice semi-pro camera it is just too bulky to take everywhere. My new camera slides in my purse and shirt pocket with no bulk or fuss. And to be really honest I sometime forget that I’m even caring it. It is easy to use with great resolution. The included lithium battery is wonderful and last a long time and is always ready to go like me. I love taking pictures of everything and Nikon Coolpix S3000 allows me to capture all the wonderful moments in life. The only thing is I can’t take snorkeling. I guess I will have to buy one of those disposable waterproof cameras for that.

    The Nikon S3000 arrived in quick time and in good shape. The only problem I have with Nikon is NO MANUAL. es, there is one on line but that’s amess and too much to print out. I asked Nikon for a printed copy $9.00 but they said “OUT OF PRINT”

    I am from the old school and like to have a manual.

    Got this to replace an older 5MP Casio that started corrupting photos.

    Pros:

    Price

    Solid (but cheap) build

    Big, bright LCD screen

    Cons:

    Too many options

    Slow shutter

    Facial focus option is tricky

    There are about 100 different things you can customize on this camera, and that’s ridiculous. If you’re using a $100 camera, you probably just want it around the house to take pictures of your kids and out and about for quick snapshots. Your best bet with this camera is to set it on ‘Auto’ and set the autofocus to ‘center.’ Set this way, you find focus using a box in the center of the LCD screen, then adjust the composition and press the shutter. If you set it the the facial recognition, you’ll get a lot of out of focus shots (like I did). The facial setting is great for parties and weddings and anytime people are posing with nothing in the foreground of the picture. If anything is in the foreground (for instance, you’re shooting your kid on the sofa, but part of the coffee table is in front of him) the camera will focus on the coffee table and your kid will be out of focus. Better to center focus on your kid, change composition, and shoot.

    And speaking of shooting, the shutter is fairly slow, so you need to anticipate action a little more than usual.

    Overall, I’m happy with this little guy. Great price and good pictures so far.

    Small sleek and nice camera, response time is great for the price of camera and nikon has improved a lot on the photo quality.

    The only problem i did not like was it did not have a wall charger for the battery, the camera has to be connected to the charger to charge which i did not like, otherwise and overall a very nice point and shoot camera…..

    First of all I think its a great camera for the price.

    I have explored other cameras in this price section and finally chose this.

    I am happy with the choice that I made.

    Its very slim and very easy to carry around.

    The best part that I liked about this is the ability to charge from PC USB port.

    It has some latest features like blink detection, smile detection, enhanced lighting etc.

    Infact, these are some of the driving factors to settle for this.

    Of course, is fair to not expect everything for this price.

    Nonetheless, the drawbacks should be listed so that people know what they are into.

    The drawbacks that I feel are

    - Low light photography is not that good

    - Difficulty in auto focus in some scenarios

    - Shorter battery life (I think 200 shots). Can’t expect more from a small battery.

    I liked my Nikon Coolpix 2100, so when it died(the on/off/shutter/telephoto quit working) I bought the CoolpixS3000. So far so good, it does a lot of things, reading the manual….trying it out. Happy so far!

    One great little camera at a super price. The wide angle lens is very handy – most of the camera’s in it’s class don’t have one. I am a real estate agent and when shooting bathrooms and kitchens, the 28mm lens is extremly helpful. 4-1 zoom which I wish was longer but at this price point you can’t get everything. Nikon glass has always been one of the best in the industry. Very easy to use with an interface that is very straight forward. My first SLR camera was a Nikon but I love sticking this little sucker in my pocket and having fun with it or shooting a new real estate listing. It is what it is and it is great!

    Before I bought this camera I did a lot of research on digital cameras. I narrowed it down to three brands. Canon, Nikon, and Sony. It took a very long time to make a decision since I didn’t want to buy crap. I eventually settled in the Nikon brand because I am very familiar with its features and camera functions. I was replacing a cheaper older model of a Nikon Coolpix L10. So, I was definitely going spend a little over $100 for this camera, but then again cameras have come a long way since the 2007. Even if I didnt buy the S3000 I knew I would get something better than my older camera due to the advancement of the compact camera technology.

    This camera is great for everyday/events picture taking. After having the camera for a few days, I tested it out when I went to a family reunion. I got many compliments and inquiries about where i got the camera from. I believe I took about 100 pics in the two days spanning the family reunion.

    Camera Features:

    I took pics using a wide variety of the camera’s features. The micro mode was pretty cool, the camera was able to focus on the subject and the picture did not come out blurry.

    It was pretty easy to take a pic in panorama mode. At first when I took the pics that would make up the panorama pic, I wasnt sure how the whole pic would come out, but the panorama maker software that comes with the did wonders. Once you out the pieces of the panorama pic in the correct order the software makes the panorama picture for you. Now that I know that I made a great panorama photo I will be using this feature very much in the future.

    This camera definitely tells you if someone blinked in the photo after the photo has been taken and you can always opt to take another pic. Continuous shot selecter is also a nice feature. You can choose to take 3 continuous shots or 16 continuous. Pics in low-light or darkness are excellent and always give light exposure buy the flash and orange light on the front of the camera. I took a picture in my room with the only source of light in the room being light from a television and the picture came out as if a ceiling light was on.

    Other features that are nice are skin-softening, smart portrait(recognizes faces), 17 scene modes including panorama, subject tracking

    Video:

    For a compact camera, the video quality was great. The sound quality was also excellent inside the video too. Playback on my laptop was seamless. You could hear words and sentences very well in the background of the video. It’s NOT HD, but I could make out everyone in the video and nothing at all was blurry.

    Battery is a plus since you can charge it, as oppose to change AA batteries all the time. The charge is very short as well.

    Definitely get a case for this camera, it is very compact, slim, and small. I have a case logic compact digital camera case. I bought my case at Walmart for $7 and cents. I feel like my camera is very well protected.

    Overall I am very happy with my purchase of the Nikon Coolpix s3000. Its a great everyday camera for the busy college student or for someone who just wants to capture life’s moments.

    Definitely buy this camera, it well worth your money and you will not be disappointed.

    I’m a photographer from way back, old school, always a proponent of film cameras. This is my first digital, bought it specifically so I can shoot images and upload to sell on eBay.

    I’m a believer. This camera is very easy to use, easy to set up, and takes really good photos. I picked it specifically because it was 12MP, for better quality images, and Nikon, because their optics have always been so good.

    It’s user friendly, intuitive controls. I barely looked at the instruction booklet. And, a snap to upload images to my computer.

    Pictures are really sharp, almost look 3 dimensional. I’m having a lot of fun just playing around with it.

    Was a great value for the price, too.

    If you’re looking for a quality point and shoot digital, you can’t go wrong with this one.
