Nikon Coolpix 3500 Digital Camera Camera

 

WHAT'S HOT: The Coolpix 3500 is essentially the same camera as the Coolpix 2500 we tested last April, but the resolution has increased from 2 to 3 megapixels. The 3500 doesn't have the exotic stainless-steel exterior we've seen on many smaller digital...

An on-screen "AF" and colored icon do a nice job of confirming that the lens is focused. Nikon's Best Shot Selector can help if the focus is iffy but you want to take a picture anyway--it tells the camera to take pictures as long as you hold down the...

Nikon Coolpix 3500 Review

 

Nikon announced the new Coolpix 3500 on 19th October 2002, almost exactly nine months since the original Coolpix 2500 was announced. The 3500 is very clearly based on the 2500, it has the same body design, lens, control system and operatining software...

Nikon CoolPix 3500

 

The Coolpix 3500 employs a unique, inner-swiveling 3x Zoom-Nikkor 37-111mm (35mm equivalent) lens that can even be turned around 180° for self-portraits. The ultra-compact body measures a mere 4.5 x 2.3 x 1.2 inches and weighs only six ounces. The Coo

The small, stylish and high resolution Coolpix 3500 has a suggested retail price of just $399. We're sure it is going to find its way under the tree of many "soon to be" digicam users this holiday season. The only things you really need to buy is a larger

Nikon Coolpix 3500: Twist and shoot

 

If you don't mind shooting without an optical viewfinder, you'll find a lot to like about this cleverly designed point-and-shoot digital camera.

Nikon Coolpix 3500

 

That means it has the inner-swivel design, found only on the 2500/3500 models, and everything that goes along with it (e.g. no optical viewfinder)

Good photo quality outdoors ; Unique (though poorly implemented) swiveling lens, stylish body ; Very good macro performance ; Many useful scene modes ; Manual white balance controls

Auto ISO means lot of noise in low light situations ; No AF illuminator ; White balance and other settings unavailable in scene and macro modes ; No optical viewfinder ; No sound or optical zoom in movie mode ; Redeye a big problem ; Aside from white...

The camera does offer a good amount of features, and quite a few scene modes. There aren't any manual controls, except for white balance. In terms of performance, the camera was about average. Some folks may like the design and ease of use of the...

My First Digital Camera

 

I finally got sucked into the age of digital cameras. Most of the people I knew around me already had a digital camera and they constantly talked about the convenience of being able to see your picture and play with it before you had it printed. So ...

Very user-friendly, sleek design, good beginner camera

Wish it was more compact
