Nikon Coolpix S3000 review

 

Editors' note: Many of the design, features, and shooting options are identical between the Nikon Coolpix S3000 and the Coolpix S4000 we reviewed earlier, so readers of the earlier review may experience some déjà vu when reading the same sections below.

Very small, lightweight; easy to operate; inexpensive.

Inconsistent autofocus; poor low-light photos.

The Nikon Coolpix S3000 is an attractive inexpensive ultracompact that's a step above your average camera phone.

Nikon Coolpix S3000 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S3000 is a super-slim, stylish and affordable digital compact camera aimed at the point-and-shoot user. With an aluminium body that's just 19mm thick, the Nikon S3000 is available in a wide-range of eye-catching colours. The S3000...

The Nikon Coolpix S3000 is a stylish but ultimately basic point-and shoot camera aimed primarily at snapshooters. It might lack the clever touchscreen interface or HD video of its bigger brother, the S4000, but it does crucially cost half the price....

Nikon Coolpix S3000 review

 

Not everyone's a camera geek. Unless you're cavorting around with a DSLR, most people simply want a camera that can take decent photos (translation: it doesn't look like it came from a cellphone) without bulking up their bags or purses.

Fast, slim and light ; Very reasonably priced ; Mom-friendly

Only the basics – photo geeks should look elsewhere ; Nothing particularly compelling vs the competition ; Image quality suffers in the high ISO range

In the end, I’d say that the Coolpix S3000 is an excellent all-arounder. If you want a camera that you can keep in your bag 24/7 and which you can whip out in a flash, without it looking like a cheap plastic contraption, then this is a terrific choice....

Nikon COOLPIX S3000

 

The Nikon COOLPIX S3000 is a 12 Megapixel compact with a 4x optical zoom and 2.7in screen. It supercedes the COOLPIX S220, with a larger LCD panel, an additional 2 Megapixels on the earlier model's resolution and extending the zoom range, gratifyingly...

4x zoom with good wide angle coverage., Excellent image quality., Small, light, eye-catching design

No optical image stabilisation., Poor quality at high ISO settings., Narrow viewing angle on-screen., Modest closest focusing distance

Nikon Coolpix S3000

 

Nikon's Coolpix cameras have been in the limelight with high-profile advertising sandwiching Hollyoaks on the TV. The Coolpix S3000 is one such camera, a compact and highly affordable camera offering a wide range of colour choices, designed to appeal...

Affordable, compact, ease of use

Might be too small for some users, image quality average, no HD video

The price is right and the build quality is surprisingly good for a camera you can collect for under £100, but the performance doesn't step up much to make it really attractive. A few more pounds and some bargains can be had for some features you might...

Nikon Coolpix S3000 review

 

A great little compact camera with 5x zoom and HD video

Stylish, slim and pocket-sized ; Easy to use point-and-shoot

Closest focus 10cm in macro, LCD has limited viewing angle, limited control for enthusiasts

Announced in February 2011, the Coolpix S3100 is aimed at users who want a shirt-pocket-sized camera that makes life simple. So simple, that while there are 18 scene modes to choose from, the S3100 has an Auto Scene Selector mode, so even this decision...
