Nikon Coolpix S3000 review

  • Excerpt: Not everyone’s a camera geek. Unless you’re cavorting around with a DSLR, most people simply want a camera that can take decent photos (translation: it doesn’t look like it came from a cellphone) without bulking up their bags or purses. The Nikon Coolpix S3000 hits this market squarely.
  • Pros: Fast, slim and light, Very reasonably priced, Mom-friendly
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S3000 is a stylish but ultimately basic point-and shoot camera aimed primarily at snapshooters. It might lack the clever touchscreen interface or HD video of its bigger brother, the S4000, but it does crucially cost half the price.

  • 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
