Having used the Nikon Coolpix L18 for years I felt lost when I couldn't use it any longer as the battery door latch broke. I wasn't upset as the camera served me very well. I always have a camera with me as I love taking photos for my volunteer work. Or just a photo of interest or safety, like the one uploaded here. A tree branch on a house where no one was home. My Nikon D60 and D7000 are just too large to walk around with all the time. So I started checking what was available in a pocket size camera. I was amazed at the new features, more pixels and slim body of many of the new cameras. I checked out Canon, Fuji, Panasonic and Sony before I bought the Coolpix S3500. The slip body fits in pockets, No sharp edges. 20 Mega Pixels and full Hi Def video at a VERY reasonable price, helped me pick it over the cameras I checked out. The only down side for me is the proprietary battery, as I was used to 2 Double AA batteries in my old Nikon Camera. The Coolpix S3500 has a great zoom and photo quality that surprised me. Trust Nikon to surprise an old guy who's been shooting photos for 40 years!. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Bought for daughters class trip to DC. Tested it first right out of the box every picture taken were blurred. Unfortunately, she took for her class trip and no matter how much she tried to adjust and focus the subject in side the brackets the shot was never clear and crisp. Thank God within return window. It is going back as soon as she gets home from her trip. Price was right and size ideal and compact it came with a carrying case. To me the design was fine but the product did not take any clear photos. Not worth the aggravation. I forgot I had a similar issue for a camera that was bought for work. It was exchanged and then later stopped working all together. Will never buy a Nikon low end camera again. Will stick with other brands.

Good quality, Little package

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S3500 20.1 Megapixel Silver Digital Camera:
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. This worked out rather well with a clear image. I was going to sell it, but decided to give it another shot in a different environment. We went to the circus over the weekend and I am extremely pleased with the quality of the images. It's a keeper!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Wonderful camera, replaced Nikon S5200
from North Western Pennsylvania USA
I have had this camera a short time but it took wonderful pictures at a birthday celebration and baby shower, two different occasions. I was told how wonderful the pictures were! I was very happy as I had the Nikon S5200 and it was apparently faulty..love this one!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This camera, like the last one, didn't last 2 months. The lens sticks and won't scope out. It's very frustrating! The last one I bought to take on a European trip and the lens stopped working my first day there. This one worked for 2 months before it had the exact same problem! Needless to say, I will not purchase another one!

I wasn't sure I could find a decent camera at a low price, but this one works great.
Best camera I have ever owned
from Georgia, U.S.A.
I love the one click photo feature. It is so easy, and I do not have to tell everyone to wait 5 seconds in the same position until the picture loads onto the camera. It is wonderful!

Great Family Camera
from Indianapolis, IN, USA
Definitely one of the best digital cameras we've owned. The battery life is great and it charges quick. Very good picture quality. It's quick and easy to use and packed with useful options. I've owned some terrible cameras so this is refreshing, lol. Thumbs up!
Compact camera should be great for travel
Haven't used yet. Purchased for overseas travel in Europe.
Compact and easy to use. Takes great pictures!
from Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538, USA
Size is compact but takes great pictures and very easy to figure out...I live in a very picturesque area and have my camera with me most of the time..this is easy to slip in a pocket
HIGH QUALITY PICTURES FOR EMAILING & PRINTING.
CONVERTS YOUR PICTURES SO THEY ARE NOT TOO LARGE ON EMAILS. THE QUALITY OF THE PICTURE IS AMAZING. ONLY DOWNFALL IS THE LCD SCREEN IS VERY PIXELATED AFTER YOU TAKE THE PICTURE. IT'S HARD TO SEE IF YOU TOOK A QUALITY PICTURE UNLESS YOU ZOOM IN AFTERWARD. ALSO THE NIKON TRANSFER 2 PROGRAM DOES THE SAME. NON THE LESS, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CAMERA FOR THE PRICE AND QUALITY OF EMAIL AND PRINTED PICTURES.
