Nikon Coolpix S3000

CNET
9 November 2010
  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S3000 is designed to be an affordable, stylish and fun camera, so it's hardly fair to expect cutting-edge technology. Even so, its basic specs are very similar to those of countless other compact cameras on the market, and it's such a modest improvement over the outgoing Coolpix...
  • Pros: Appealing design and styling; handy 4x wide-angle zoom; good value for money.
  • Cons: Fine detail can become mushy; no optical image stabilisation; tendency to overexpose photos.

  • Cons: Only the basics – photo geeks should look elsewhere., Nothing particularly compelling vs the competition, Image quality suffers in the high ISO range

  • Summary: To sum it up, the S3000 is a user-friendly entry-level camera.  It’s ultra-compact, which means it can go with you anywhere. The downside of the Nikon S3000 is that it just isn’t up to snuff on image quality.

  • Summary: 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 mostly at the wide angle end.
  • Pros: 4x zoom with good wide angle coverage., Excellent image quality., Small, light, eye-catching design.
  • Cons: No optical image stabilisation., Poor quality at high ISO settings., Narrow viewing angle on-screen., Modest closest focusing distance.

  • Conclusion: You could also consider the Canon IXUS 105. The IXUS 105 is a little larger, but in my view has a slight edge when it comes to picture quality.
  • Pros: Ease of use - 3 inch LCD screen - High Definition movies - colours - shutter lag times
  • Cons: Macro mode - shutter lag with flash

  • Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix S3000 is the cheaper and simpler sibling of the S4000 model that we reviewed earlier in the year, losing that camera's 3 inch touch-screen LCD and 720p High Definition movie recording capability, but otherwise offering the same design and core features.

  • Conclusion: Well built and a good budget camera but frustratingly slow and lacking in features means it’s a distinctly average proposition

  • Conclusion: 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 want, like the ability to capture HD video.
  • Pros: Affordable, compact, ease of use
  • Cons: Might be too small for some users, image quality average, no HD video

  • Conclusion: Aparat jest jednym z najmniejszych i najsmuklejszych aparatów cyfrowych oferowanych przez Nikona – grubość jego obudowy wynosi zaledwie 19 mm. Został wyposażony w szerokokątny, teleskopowo składany obiektyw z czterokrotnym zoomem optycznym.
  • Pros: Bardzo smukła obudowa z całkowicie chowającym się obiektywem, Szerokokątna optyka, Przyzwoita dynamika obrazu
  • Cons: Słaba szczegółowość (ostrość) obrazu, Brak stabilizacji optycznej
