Nikon Coolpix S3100 Preview

 

Just underneath the S6100 and the S4100, the Nikon S3100 is the entry-level camera within their new S series announcements. The S3100 has the same 14-Megapixel resolution as the S4100, but does not include touch screen functionality. Instead, the S3100...

Nikon Coolpix S3100 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S3100 is a super-slim, stylish and affordable digital compact camera aimed at the point-and-shoot user. With an aluminium body that's just 18.4mm thick, the Nikon S3100 is available in a wide-range of eye-catching colours. The S3100...

The S3100 is as well put together as one would expect a Nikon camera to be. The main improvements over its predecessor are a broader focal range, a couple of million extra pixels in terms of headline resolution, and High Def video rather than standard...

The upgrade of the best selling digital camera in Europe for last year has arrived. Does the new model deserve to do equally well?

Nikon Coolpix S3100

 

The Nikon S3100 is a slender 5x zoom compact camera that's an ideal point-and-shoot for the style-conscious. But is the budget Coolpix S3100 a true winner? While the S3100 doesn't offer extensive controls and the image quality most certainly isn't for...

Affordable, stylish and slim, various colours, 26mm wide-angle

Poor image quality, LCD’s limited angle of view, no zoom in movie mode

While the S3100 doesn’t offer extensive controls and the image quality most certainly isn’t for critical work, the camera does deliver what it sets out to: it looks the part and is affordable. The variety of colours available means there’s a model to...

Nikon S3100 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...

Nikon COOLPIX S3100 Review, Price in India

 

Nikon is taking care that you get a perfect shot with a perfect pieces of machine, and unveiled its Nikon COOLPIX S3100 as a closely matched squeal to S3000, though enhanced on feature perspectives.

• The zooming power caters to fine detailing, something which a photographer always wants ; • Movie mode gives versatility from stills to moving shots. ; • Easy to take and carry – motility makes it convenient.

• Prices – one could sulk that other similar product offers a cost cut while Nikon COOLPIX S3100 is a little pricy. ; • Yes, low screen resolution could be a cause for cribbing for advance users ; • Apart from the above small glitches here and there...

On the whole, our verdict swings off to grade this camera a good one. Short comings here and there are quite natural, but COOLPIX S3100 does get a plus on other. But Nikon COOLPIX S3100 is definitely one step ahead of its predecessor S3000. The price...

Nikon Coolpix S3100 review

 

A well built and easy to use budget cam, it's just a shame it doesn't produce better results

Slim and light, but with an impressive features spec at this price

Picture quality could be better, especially in video mode
