Product Details

Nikon Coolpix S3600 20.1 Megapixel Black Digital Camera - COOLPIXS3600SIL

The shots we want don't always happen right in front of us; they're often out on the sports field, up on the stage, across the room or just too far away for many smartphone cameras—but not too far away for the stylish COOLPIX S3600. Its NIKKOR glass zoom lens makes it easy to catch those shots. Zoom in with the power of 8x optical zoom and 16x Dynamic Fine Zoom for detailed close-ups from the sidelines. Add convenient features like Scene Modes for difficult shooting situations, Smart Portrait System for flattering no-fuss portraits, Target Finding Autofocus for keeping focus where you want it, fun Image Effects and so much more, and you've got a camera you can count on in nearly any situation.


  • Zoom in close with Dynamic Fine Zoom
    Every COOLPIX is designed around a genuine NIKKOR glass lens, the legendary optics that have helped make Nikon famous. The COOLPIX S3600’s 8x optical zoom lens goes from wide-angle—great for portraits and landscapes—all the way up to telephoto—great for closeups of sports, concerts, nature and more. When you need even more reach, zoom up to 8x with optical zoom and 16x with Dynamic Fine Zoom, an enhanced digital zoom function that effectively doubles your reach.
  • 18 Scene Modes for effortless photos
    Experienced photographers optimize their camera settings to match the situation. The COOLPIX S3600 does that work for you. With 18 Scene Modes, including Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, Sunset and more, it's easy to match the moment to a Scene Mode. You can even get creative and use Scene Modes to alter ordinary shots. Or, select Scene Auto Selector and let the camera choose the best mode for your situation.
  • Smart Portrait System makes everyone look their best
    Smart Portrait System makes it easy to create beautiful photos of the people you care about. Turn it on, and several portrait-optimizing features activate. Face Priority AF finds and focuses on faces. Skin Softening applies an attractive soft focus effect. The camera can even automatically take a photo the instant someone smiles! Your loved ones will always look their best.
  • HD 720p videos with sound bring your memories to life
    When a photo alone won't do, press the dedicated movie button and instantly start recording HD 720p video in widescreen format while the built-in microphone captures the sounds of the moment in high fidelity. When you're ready to share your creations, use an optional audio video cable to connect to your compatible TV. Your friends and family will see your movies come to life on the big screen.
  • Target Finding AF for accurate, intelligent autofocus
    It's frustrating when a smartphone camera focuses on the wrong thing. With COOLPIX S3600, Target Finding AF instantly and accurately determines your intended subject and focuses on it—not on just whatever is closest to the camera. Catch the shot you want on the first try. No more out of focus shots or the frustration of trying to get the camera to focus on the right thing.
  • Get the best of what's seen
    Turn on Best Shot Selector and get the best of what's seen. With a single press of the shutter button, the camera takes a quick sequence of photos and automatically saves the best ones for you.
  • Change it up
    Wondering how that photo would look in black & white? As an artistic illustration? Easily preview a selection of fun Quick Effects on photos you’ve already taken, then save your favorites alongside the original.

Junk Camera


from Pittsburgh PA

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S3600 20.1 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

Bought camera in August, Autofocus caused all movies to be out of focus, 3 months later normal snapshots all started coming out blurry. reset to default settings, no change, used anti shake setting no change, used tripod no change. Complained to customer support who told me since I didn't have receipt for online purchase they wouldn't honor warranty despite camera being 3 months old. Old Coolpix had sharp pictures, was far superior to this one even before totally blurry recent shots.

Excellent quality in a small package!


from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S3600 20.1 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

I bought this camera after returning a very subpar Polaroid digital camera and am just amazed at how high quality the photos are! My mom had a Nikon Coolpix camera several years ago and she was very pleased with hers so I decided to get a Nikon Coolpix as well based on that and the fact that the Walmart Photo Center also uses this model. If you want great quality photos, go with this camera! You WON'T be disappointed.

Great little pocket camera!


from Farmington, NM, USA

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S3600 20.1 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

Picked up this camera to replace a S3500 model that I broke. This is an old friend format. Got the camera for having a "Pocket Camera" with me all the time. As a working professional photographer, I want a camera with me all the time, but I don't like to haul around the "Big Gun" everywhere. As a Crew member on a running steam locomotive, I want a camera that I can carry with me and get good pictures at a moments notice. The S3600 fills the bill. 20MP size, good enough for 16x20 prints, Light weight and size to cary in your pocket. And it's functions give me a wide range of choices to handle most anything I've come across. Good wide angle, and close-up ability. BTW the video is pretty darn good too. Came with Battery, Strap, Charger w/cord, Software, Instruction Book(printed) and a full Nikon warranty. All said, Great little general use, everyday camera.
