Excerpt: This camera is great for new digital camera users or just amateur photographers in general. This was my first real camera (not disposable) that was given to me as a gift. It is very simple due to a menu that is programed with different situations, such as, night photography and fireworks. However, one does not have to use the preset templates because one can shut the templates off and just freestyle it with flash on or off.
Excerpt: Before I purchased my Nikon D40, I wanted a cute little point and shoot to take out with me for pics with me and my friends. The Nikon Coolpix S3 was the perfect camera. Small, lightweight, user friendly and able to take great shots consistently! I dropped it, sat on it, pretty sure I spilled something on the poor thing but it kept on ticking. One of my favorite features of this camera is the macro function.
Excerpt: This is the best little camera. I take it everywhere and it's really great for those point and shoot moments. Also, it takes really great pictures indoors without flash. The video feature is pretty good, but the resolution's not that great. The video is pretty fuzzy on playback, but worth having for candid shots. It's really easy to turn on and start shooting video or taking pics. The built-in mic works very well.
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.
Summary: Great camera for the money. It is light and takes a great picture with lots of flexibility to set the camera for a variety of photo situations. The camera also has the capability to crop and edit photos and then save the new picture.
Summary: Love this camera. I recieved one for graduation adn now just purchased another one to replace the one I have. This camera is compact, user friendly and convienient. Love it and wouldn't recomand anything else.
Excerpt: Pretty good camera for a beginner. I was looking for something to get me by while my Sony was being fixed. While being less then what I was wanting it takes fast continuous pictures and very clear pictures. Bright colors and its great for fast moving photos like sports . Could use a bigger zoom. Over all I would recommend this camera to anyone who just wants a point and shot camera. Pictures are very clear and bright .
