  • Excerpt: Very impressed. Easy to use, yet suprisingly great quality pictures from such a small unbelievable tiny camera. Got quick rave reviews from my subjects after just snapping their picture as they look at the 2.5-inch LCD. All were amazed.

Aggravating!

A. Hunt, Amazon
18 October 2007
  • Summary: I initially loved this camera. I don't use my camera that much, but when I do, I expect it to work. I charged the battery the night before I left for a vacation. The next day I took a few pictures and then realized that the battery was almost dead. I hadn't even used the camera but for a total of about five minutes since I last charged it! It was not exposed to any extreme temperatures that would mess up the battery, either.

it can happen to you

  • Summary: Before buying this camera I read all the reviews posted. Most people were satisfied with this product, but a few complained that after a period of time the screen went black and the camera was unable to take photos. I thought that this would never happen to me and bought it anyway. Sure enough durring a fishing trip when I wanted to take photos of the lunkers I was catching the screen went black. I almost threw it in the river.

Nikon - Coolpix S3 Digital Camera

Too Small

Lucky44, Amazon
29 May 2007
  • Summary: Quality and features are fine, but camera is probably too small for you if you have large hands. If I use two hands I am fighting to keep my fingers out of my shots. Because of the shape and weight distrubution I find it difficult to shoot with one hand. I have a much larger camera (Canon S1 IS) that I often use one-handed with no issues. To be fair, this criticism certainly applies to lots of super small digital cams.

These cameras are defective within 1-2 years

John Gallagher, Amazon
18 May 2007
  • Summary: I had the Nikon Coolpix S3 for about 14 months (of course the warranty ended after 12), and the screen went black all of a sudden. You can still view old pictures, but all new pictures come out completely black. This is apparently a VERY common problem with Nikons, particularly this model.

Easy and small

T. Shields, Amazon
30 July 2006
  • Summary: This camera really delivers. I appraise real estate and take from 40 - 100 pix a week. I want a SLR for serious work, but this camera is great for appraisal work because it is so handy. I have a clipboard in one hand and a laser measuring device in the other with the camera in my shirt pocket. I can switch LMD and camera as needed.

Cool pics

  • Summary: This little thing is perfect for anyone who is looking for a sleek, compact digital camera that will take amazing photos. I took it to Europe and was amazed at the shots it took - portraits, close-ups, landscapes, action, indoor, outdoor. No complaints.
