Waist of money

By Cee

from Undisclosed

Always has an exhausted battery. Turns off on you randomly and wont turn back on. Don't waist your money on this useless camera! As a matter of fact all Nixon cameras are cheap and don't work. I;m VERY disappointed with this!

Charger stopped working


from Atlanta, GA

I almost wish it required batteries because now I have no way of using my camera until I get a new charger.

Camera has great features for entry level cost.

By Pics-A-Lot

from Carterville, IL.

I have owned the S3000 since 4/2011 and have taken thousands of great pics. Its handi size allows it to travel with me everywhere. From shirt pocket to trucks glove box its allways ready to use. Never a problem as of yet. A fine camera for the money.
