The upgrade of the best selling digital camera in Europe for last year has arrived. Does the new model deserve to do equally well?

Nikon Coolpix S3100

 

The Nikon S3100 is a slender 5x zoom compact camera that's an ideal point-and-shoot for the style-conscious. But is the budget Coolpix S3100 a true winner? While the S3100 doesn't offer extensive controls and the image quality most certainly isn't for...

Affordable, stylish and slim, various colours, 26mm wide-angle

Poor image quality, LCD’s limited angle of view, no zoom in movie mode

While the S3100 doesn’t offer extensive controls and the image quality most certainly isn’t for critical work, the camera does deliver what it sets out to: it looks the part and is affordable. The variety of colours available means there’s a model to...

Nikon S3100 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...

A stylish ultra-slim camera at an attractive price, but image quality is simply appalling.

Nikon Coolpix S3100 review

 

A well built and easy to use budget cam, it's just a shame it doesn't produce better results

Slim and light, but with an impressive features spec at this price

Picture quality could be better, especially in video mode

Nikon COOLPIX S3100: Does the performance match its looks?

With few thrills and below-average images, the S3100 is only appealing on the outside. Nikon may have covered all budgets, but we're left wanting more

Nikon Coolpix S3100 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S3100 is certainly pleasing to the eye, but can it take the images to match?

Excellent value, well featured, decent image quality

Picture quality not quite up to standard, poor LCD screen

For the price the Nikon Coolpix S3100 offers plenty of features and the kind of aesthetic that will please fashion-conscious snappers. Beneath that there are a few annoyances to be dealt with, such as the delays in focusing once the zoom is used and...
