-> Excellent Camera -> The Coolpix 3500 is a replacement for my trusty old Nikon Collpix 700 which died after many years of use and thounsands of photos. My impressions are that this camera does what it is supposed to do. -> it's size and shape is a tad larger than my mobile phone. No problems fitting into a pocket. It is a simple to use, low feature compact camera that the wife is happy to keep in her handbag. ->Photo quality is first rate (minor barrel distortion at wider angles) and it is ...

A keen machine !!! BUT... As you can see i've rated only a 2.5 for it's features. This because 3500 model misses the capability to make accurate pictures in the background with flash on. (It misses a flash with slow shutter speed) Secondly none of the fuctions could provide me a clear image of a street filled with people and lights at night time. The quality overall is fair enough for nice 10X15 pictures Anybody who has a aps or a simple 35 mm compact camera, this might be a suitable model ...

This is my first digital camera, and I bought it because of the great deal I got on it. I paid about $275 incl. 16MB CF card from an on-line store in Sweden. I have been using our company Nikon CoolPix 950 on several occasions and have been very satisfied with it even though it was bought five years ago soon. After a week of taking a couple of hundred pictures I can say that there are a few quirks which I don't like... I don't like the fact that there's no optical viewer, I don't like the ...

Nice camera. Light weight and seemed very functional but I returned it to the store after 2 days. (see below in the problems section.) Problems: The Nikon software conflicted with my HP printer. I have a HP 932 and run Windows 98. Nikon tech support told me there was nothing wrong with the camera only the software. To make it work I could download the pics into the computer but then before printing on the HP I had to disable the Nikon software. That seemed like too many steps for me to ...

My first digital camera. I wanted a small camera because I found that I used my Olympus Stylus Zoom 105 much more often than I used my Minolta X700. 99% of my shots are casual so I was not expecting to get a camera that took pictures as well as a $600 or $700 camera. After reading other peoples reviews I expected a much lower picture quality than I have gotten. My battery seems to last plenty long enough I have shot 40+ pictures with flash after the low battery light indicator showed. ...

This is my first digicam and fit my needs well. I take digital pictures mostly for record-keeping rather than art/aesthetic reasons, so minor problems with image quality don't bother me. The 3500 provides me with what I need at my present state of knowledge. Since buying the camera I've discovered a use that I never dreamed of - taking pictures of documents (papers in scientific journals, mostly) instead of photocopying them. I download them to PC and shove them into Adobe Acrobat, whence I ...

This is NOT a suitable replacement to the Coolpix 2500! That's what I found out when I bought it as a replacement to my 2500. I thought good, I can finally upgrade to a 3.0 mpixel, but keep the same great features I am used to in the tiny 2500! After a week I found out I was very wrong - these two cameras are identical in every way, except one: The Coolpix 3500 has a TERRIBLE problem with shadow noise. It was immediately noticable when I first started taking pics. Luckily I still had my ...

Bought this camera as a well featured pocket sized camera. Ideal for use at parties where you don't want the burden of a 35 mm . Based on the bumph that comes with it, it seem the ideal choice. Problems: However ... You can't rely on the camera if you need to use flash , this pictures are ruined by what appears to be dust particles. I will be returning the camera and looking for an alternative.. what are Nikon playing at didn't they test the camera. I have seen results from their 885 and ...

Great camera for non-expert photographers. Does a lot of job for you, wich delivers generally good pictures. I wish the "scenes" (picture modes) could be modifiable and the bettery could last longer, but generally it's a very good camera. Satisfied costumer. Problems: none.
