-> 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 ...

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 ...

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.

For the moeny you paid, this is what you get, I think this is a good value, you should not compare it with a hign end camera like 4700 or f717. This is for dummies. 1. overall it is good 2.close up picture is really good 2. while use flash, you have to keep the person still for .5 second or longer if you use red eye. 3.good picture under good light. if little darker, not good. 4.battery is so small, I wish it could be bigger for more power. well, it is a dummy camera with good value, good ...

I wanted a lightweight alternative to my Nikon 995 that would offer similar zoom and resolution, at a fraction of the weight and bulk. The 3500 pulls it off - it is a brilliant camera, offering an innovative design, simple "point-and-click" snaps (when you want them), and a range of useful, more sophisticated, manual options for creative photography. Unlike the 995, it slips into the pocket - like the 995 it takes great photographs. Problems: None

I was excited to get this camera because of the swivel design, and the ability to do self portraits. I like the swivel design as it is good for protecting the lens. It's very portable and fun to use.. Problems: I bought this online from etronics and it turned out to be defective. There was an annoying green pixel on the screen and in the pictures. I decided to go for the Pentax Optio 330GS instead as it does self portraits, has equal zoom as this one, accomodates AA batteries (the nikon ...
