The Nikon Coolpix S3500 Digital Camera (Silver) 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

  • 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

Good quality, Little package

By

from SW Ohio

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

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!

S3500 Never a Clear Shot

By

from NY

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

from Undisclosed

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

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

By

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!

HIGH QUALITY PICTURES FOR EMAILING & PRINTING.

By

from Undisclosed

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.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  How much internal memory with the Nikon Coolpix S3500?
LASZLO D  Hi, i just tested it out for you and the S3500 internal memory is good for a grand total of...TWO pictures. But i found a way to get a third in there by letting the camera do a "quick retouch" of one of the images. So basically; 2 shots and maximum 3 stored. Get an SD card for it, any SD card. Because relying on internal memory of the camera is like bringing a 2-shot Derringer to the OK Corral :)
Shopper  When recording Can I use cable EG CP 14 a/v to watch on TV, this way help to move right on the center.???not far left or right . Thank you.
DON W  I have never used this feature. I HAVE taken out the chip and plugged it directly to my TV with good results.
Shopper  My camera S3500 was working fine. I put it on to charge and after a few hours, it now will not turn on. What's my problem?
IVO J  Hi. I have bought the camera 5 months ago and it has never worked properly. I am going to return it as soon as possible.
