Excerpt: I bought the S3500 to take pics of my aquariums and fishies. I was rather disappointed with the macro settings. It does not take good close-up images. Although after hours of fiddling with it, I figured out that you can take a pic, review it, zoom in on it and crop it with the cam.
Summary: Love the 20 mp photos. Even w/ lots of cropping, you still have a decent sized photo. But it is not good in low light. Nice for outdoors on sunny or at least bright days. However it does have one of the few flash units on a point and shoot that is quite good.
Summary: Great little camera, but you MUST buy a DS card along with it and I had no idea until I used my CoolPix. I was only able to take 5 pictures before the memory was used up, which came as a shock to me. Not everybody who buys a cool camera knows about this stuff.
Summary: I was very excited about getting a new camera and all the features on his one looked great.

Summary: The Nikon CoolPix S3500 camera is a very good inexpensive camera designed for casual picture taking and vacation and party snapshots, using the zoom lens and all the image manipulation features and controls included.
Summary: Well, I don't know what to say. I like the camera, but I don't love it. Sometimes I get great photos, but, other times, the camera falls short. At one point in time I had a Kodak 10mp, which took better pictures. Sure, the image is 'larger', but the quality, not so much.
