About Nikon S3500

The Nikon Coolpix S3500 Digital Camera (Purple) is a point-and-shoot equipped with a 20.1MP image sensor and the EXPEED C2 image-processing engine. It also has a 7x optical zoom NIKKOR ED lens with a focal length of 4.7-32.9 (35mm equivalent: 26-182mm). The lens has a maximum aperture of f/3.4 at the wide-angle end and f/6.4 at telephoto. Frame shots and view playback on the 2.7" LCD monitor, which has a resolution of 230k pixels and anti-reflection coating.

The S3500 records HD 720p videos with sound and offers a dedicated one-touch button to immediately start your recording. The optional EG-CP14 A/V cable allows you to connect your camera to an HDTV for clear large screen viewing of your videos. Lens-shift Vibration Reduction compensates for camera shake and helps minimize blur in photos taken in low light or at longer focal lengths.

When you don't want to worry about camera settings, the S3500 provides numerous assistive features. Scene Auto Selector automatically picks the optimal camera settings based on the scene the camera reads or, if you prefer, choose from 20 distinct scenes the one that closest matches what you are shooting and the camera will select the best settings.

Subject Tracking locks on to moving subjects and keeps focus right where you want it and Motion Detection recognizes a moving subject and adjusts the camera's settings to freeze the action. Smart Portrait System activates several features to take the ideal portrait. In addition, Special Effects are available during shooting to add an artistic touch, Quick Effects can be applied after shooting and an enhanced Glamour retouch function will add dynamism and a touch of beauty to your portraits. The S3500 also supports the optional Eye-Fi wireless memory cards for wireless transfer to smart devices.

Nikon S3500 Features

  • 20.1MP Sensor and EXPEED C2 Processor: The camera's image sensor has a high resolution of 20.1MP and works with the EXPEED C2 image processing engine to produce clear, detailed photos and videos
  • 26-182mm NIKKOR Lens: The S3500 features a 7x optical zoom NIKKOR ED lens with a focal length of 4.7-32.9 (35mm equivalent: 26-182mm). The lens features a maximum aperture range of f/3.4-6.4. The lens features ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass
  • 2.7" LCD Monitor: The 2.7" TFT LCD screen features a 230k-pixel resolution and an anti-reflection coating for improved visibility in bright sunlight
  • Video: Capture HD 720p video and, thanks to the built-in microphone, accompanying audio
  • Image Stabilization: Lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps minimize the blur caused by camera shake, especially in dim light and at telephoto focal lengths
  • Motion Blur Reduction: The camera automatically selects faster shutter speeds to compensate for subject movement when it's picked up via the Motion Detection function. Motion Blur Reduction, like Vibration Reduction in the lens, also helps the camera compensate for movement caused by unsteady hands
  • 80-1600 ISO Sensitivity: High ISO sensitivity permits the maximum use of available natural light, avoiding the need for flash or long exposure times. By enabling the selection of faster shutter speeds, it also makes it easier to capture fast-moving subjects with greater clarity
  • Smart Portrait System: Each of the advanced functions of the Smart Portrait System is designed to help produce consistently great portraits
  • Scene Auto Selector/Easy Auto Mode: These functions provide quick, carefree picture-taking in a variety of situations by determining the subject and surrounding conditions, then automatically selecting the appropriate scene mode for the shot
  • Subject Tracking: Follows the movement of your subject as you shoot. The focus will remain on the subject no matter where or how fast it goes
  • Effects: Special effects can be added to your image before shooting, while quick effects can be applied after shooting and during playback. Also benefit from an enhanced Glamour retouch function
  • Memory: Supports Eye-Fi wireless memory cards for wireless image transfer

Baby Nikon joins my family

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.

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.

Good quality, Little package

By

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!!

Wonderful camera, replaced Nikon S5200

By

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!

S3500 Never a Clear Shot

By

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.

Major problems

By

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!

Best camera I have ever owned

By

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

By

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!

HIGH QUALITY PICTURES FOR EMAILING & PRINTING.

By

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.

It's Attached to Me Day & Night.

By

This Coolpix is the BEST !!! Got it for macro mostly & also landscape. I have to keep it fully charged because I take it with me everywhere I go. I have four 8 GB SDHC memory cards, too; I shoot everything. The 'options' available after you shoot a subject are totally exciting. Have to keep it in a Ziploc bag because of pet hair - a camera bag doesn't work; the retracting lens will take fibers or pet hair inside the camera.
