Nikon Coolpix S3000

 

Nikon's Coolpix cameras have been in the limelight with high-profile advertising sandwiching Hollyoaks on the TV. The Coolpix S3000 is one such camera, a compact and highly affordable camera offering a wide range of colour choices, designed to appeal...

Affordable, compact, ease of use

Might be too small for some users, image quality average, no HD video

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...

Nikon Coolpix S3000 review

 

A great little compact camera with 5x zoom and HD video

Stylish, slim and pocket-sized ; Easy to use point-and-shoot

Closest focus 10cm in macro, LCD has limited viewing angle, limited control for enthusiasts

Announced in February 2011, the Coolpix S3100 is aimed at users who want a shirt-pocket-sized camera that makes life simple. So simple, that while there are 18 scene modes to choose from, the S3100 has an Auto Scene Selector mode, so even this decision...

Nikon - COOLPIX S3000

 

The COOLPIX S3000 is one of Nikon's most recent entry-level digital cameras. Now, you can be pretty sure whenever you see the name Nikon on a camera, you're not going to be looking at a made-in-a-basement ...

Given that retailers like Amazon are currently selling this camera for as little as £79.98, the Nikon COOLPIX S3000 certainly fulfils its aim to be a chic, good quality and user-friendly introduction to compact digital photography, although video is...

We review the Nikon COOLPIX S3000 digital compact camera, a budget model with some surprising features

Well built and a good budget camera but frustratingly slow and lacking in features means it's a distinctly average proposition

Nikon Coolpix S3000

 

This is a cheaper pocket digital camera. It scores highly for ease of use and it also carries a lower price tag for a pocket camera from Nikon. I did find some issues with picture quality.

Ease of use - 3 inch LCD screen - High Definition movies - colours - shutter lag times

Macro mode - shutter lag with flash

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.

Nikon Coolpix S3000 review

 

Nikon's S series combines a decent specification with low prices, but how do they fair up on the WDC testing bench?

Price, compact size

Poor image quality, extremely basic user interface

Good points; Lightweight. Large internal memory. Drawbacks: Some difficulty in focusing on close up objects. Zoom jumpy on digital mode.
