The Nikon Coolpix S3300 Digital Camera (Black) has everything you need in a compact camera, all beautifully contained in a stylish little pocket-sized package less than 0.8" thick and weighing in at 4.6 oz (128g). Start with a serious 16MP CCD sensor for great image quality, add a sharp 6x wide-angle Nikkor 26-156 mm (equivalent in 35mm format) lens and a brilliant 2.7" LCD monitor with tack-sharp resolution.
The S3300 isn't just another pretty face, either--it's got one-touch 720p HD video and image stabilization to banish blurry pictures forever, sensitivity up to 3200 ISO that lets you keep shooting even when it gets dark, Subject Tracking Autofocus that locks onto a moving subject, keeping it in focus at all times and a Macro mode that produces fantastic pictures close-ups.
The Smart Portrait System makes everybody you photograph look good, by automatically capturing a smile. There are 18 scene modes making this a camera that's easy to live with and you'll have the photos and videos to prove it.

I looked for a camera with an optical viewfinder and almost stayed with my older Canon 600. But since manufacturers claim the newer cameras without optical are much improved I decided to try the Nikon S3300. I found that the new screens are not bright enough in outdoor sunlight. You can not see enough detail in bright sunlight to properly frame the shot or even to view the pictures after they are taken. If I were making the purchase again, I would go with a camera with optical viewfinder (if you can find one.) I will be using my Canon with optical as much as I can and use the Nikon only in an emergency. My best advice...dont buy a camera until you can try it in bright sunlight.
You can't beat this camera for the price, I own expesive video and still camera's. This is great to just take along anywhere with you. The manual settings are easy to use.
