Nikon Coolpix S3300 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S3300 is a slimline compact camera featuring a 6x optical zoom, 16 megapixel sensor, 720p HD video, Smartportrait system and Eye-Fi compatibility. Aimed at the user about town who wants a camera that can slip easily into the pocket...

The Nikon Coolpix S3300 is a decent little camera suitable for the point and shooter. It's designed to do everything for you and that's exactly what it does. However, if you know how to use the ISO etc, then it's there for you. The camera is very easy...

Nikon S3300

 

Affordable compact with some deal-breaking drawbacks.

Accurate colors; Dead-on white balance

Poor resolution; Severe chromatic aberration

The Coolpix S3300 isn’t a great camera, even for only $140. The cheap lens produces some of the most distracting chromatic aberration we’ve seen, and overall resolution is poor as a result. Shot to shot speed is also quite slow, ruling out action or...

Nikon Coolpix S3300 Digital Camera Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S3300 is an update to the S3100, now featuring a 6x optical zoom lens and 16 megapixel sensor.

Compact body; 6x optical zoom; Good colour reproduction; Available at a reasonable price; Good AWB performance; Camera comes in lots of different colours

Image quality isn't good at all

Olympus SH-25MR81/100

Ease of use, extra length of lens

Slow shutter response with flash

The picture quality produced by the Nikon Coolpix S3300 is not quite as impressive as some of its closest rivals, but it is difficult to beat when it comes to ease of use. So if you are looking for an inexpensive digital camera that is very simple and...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not a horrible camera

 

Lousy customer service from Nikon on what I thought was a pretty decent point and shoot camera. 1 year and 1 week and it died, it was 1 week out of warranty and they would not even discuss a replacement...

Small and compact, 16 megapixels

For 16 mp sometimes the pictures were very blurry and other times quite clear, don't know why either. The big con is how long this camera lasted. Bought it on 4/30/12 and it died the 1st week of May 2013. Guess what the warranty is? Yep 1 year! Nikon...
