I recieved this camera as a birthday gift in July and I love it ! This camera takes awesome pictures and I like how there are many different scene modes it can go into ! The timer is very nice to have and the color options make your camera very unique ! Overall, I'm very impressed with this camera and i recommend that you try it as well !

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fred I got this coolpix s3000 today and was quit impressed. It looked really classy, I got it in Plum and it was small, which I needed and looked for. I have Parkinson's Disease and sometimes have problems with Camers but this one fit my needs just fine. I got a black case to go with it. I took some pics of my apartment and uploaded them to my computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarineMGySgt I love the ease of use and the simplicity
I waited until I was able to take a video with the Coolpix before I did this review. I have taken over 300 pictures in various image modes including Macro and I am amazed at the sharpness of the pictures. The zoom works great and I like how the camera charges itself when connected to my computer. The software Nikon Transfer makes downloading pictures safe and easy. Finally, the video capability really surprised me. The sound and the picture quality were very good for this small camera. This camera's compact size is easy to handle. You have made an outstanding product at a very reasonable price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by coolpixistoocool I have honestly never used the camera before, but my friend has the camera and she has complained several times about the lens error!
P.S Lens error often seems to be a major problem with this camera.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Turtle Doesn't focus
We bought this camera to use in place of an HP camera we have that chews through batteries.
We have heard great things about Nikon, particularly their lenses. Good lenses should equal good, sharp pictures.
The primary issue with the camera is that it does not focus. The vast majority of pictures taken with this camera are out of focus. The camera offers multiple focal points and that may be the root cause of the problem. I often don't even click the picture because the camera chooses the oddest items it the picture to be the main focal point.
When I contacted customer service they asked me to send in sample pictures. After a couple of rounds their advice was to change the ISO settings from Auto. If I want them to check out the problems further I must send in the camera at my own expense.
I have a Digital SLR to be used in some situations and a point-and-shoot in others. One of the key features I like about a point-and-shoot is that I don't have to mess with ISO, aperture, and shutter speed settings. All I (should) have to do is ... point and shoot.

I only buy Nikon cameras because I know they are the best. However, the purchase of this camera has really smeared Nikon's name for me. The screen on my camera never focuses. I can't tell if it's just the screen that is blurred or if the picture is blurred. I have contacted support about the issue and have gotten no response. I would not recommend the camera. I have too many issues with blurred pictures and the screen. If I could afford to buy a different camera I would get rid of this on in a heart beat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rave23 This camera is not what I expected
It is a good camera but for all the money that i spent on this camera i would expect it to come with a case so i didnt have to spend more money on top on it just to get a case. i know a lot of other companies are much less expensive and come with cases and they work just as well if not better. Also it is very hard to figure out. every camera that i have had i didnt need to read the manual to understand it but this one i did. It is an expensive camera so i expected more of it. It takes blury pictures more then half the time when im not taking a picture of a face and just of something. I just got it the other day and have not taken it out the house so I really dont know how the qualty is outside but so far im not impressed with this camera. My suggestion is to go with either a different camera or take your chances on this one. Even though something is more expensive it is probably better product so it is worth the extra $30.

I've only had the camera for a couple of months but every picture has been near perfect. A steady hand is very necessary and sometimes it can take a few additional minutes to focus but if you pre press the shutter button the frame will come into focus. Enjoy your camera.

Rated 3 out of 5 by shel good pics but problems
I love this little camera, it takes amazing pics for a small point and shoot. I have problems with the memory card, the camera keeps saying that the card cannot be read so I have to power it off and on over and over again. this results in missed shots, which is frustrating. I plan to buy a nikon dslr next year and I will give this camera to one of my kids.

Rated 2 out of 5 by al My biggest problem is there is no users manual [ paper version] included. Disk only, if you want a paper version you can print it out yurself, if you carry a computer with you wherever you go. I DO NOT. I RARELY USE A COMPUTER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicola Best Camera Ever!
I got this camera for my birthday and it is the best camera i have ever had! I takes such clear pictures and great videos also. It is slim and small so you don't have to lug it around uncomfortably. The Color choices are great. Mine is blue and it is such a vibrant color. It is an awesome camera!

Rated 1 out of 5 by 12345 worst camera
i had lost my previous camera and was in search of a new one before college graduation. being a broke college student, i just ran into walmart and got the nikon because it was pretty cheap and i wan't looking for any thing to do serious photography with (and there weren't many other options). The zoom was terrible to begin with, and then it broke within the first 2 weeks of having the camera. The pictures at night turned out blurry whatever setting it was on, the review time was so long that i was always late to take another picture, (even after taking the review off, it takes a while to get ready to take again) and it takes FOREVER to delete a picture. All in all it was just a slow, unreliable camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slbares86 This is an awesome camera and works great at night
I've had many cameras before and always had problems taking pictures at night. I like going out at night to parties and most of the parties are outside and taking pictures outside was always hard to do. This camera works so great and for the price I paid I got a deal. Recommend it to anyone that likes taking those late night pics

Rated 1 out of 5 by mm sfla Very dissapointed.
I have owned many point and shoot digital cameras, I am by no means an expert with cameras or photography but I have had success in operating these devices.
With the Nikon CoolPix S3000 I had very frustrating time with it and it performed poorly. About every third shot it would have digital static across the photo in varying amounts from slightly annoying to completely blurring out the scene. I would have to turn off the camera for a period of time and turn it back on to get it straight again for the next two to three pictures.
I was quickly between work trips and had unfortunately lost my previous camera and bought this on the reputation of Nikons picture quality and the affordability of the camera.
I will say when the picture comes out static free it is of a high quality and am impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Whysong99 Excellent product
I purchased this camera on a cruise ship. I took close to 500 pictures and they are excellent. The camera ia almost idiot proof. I am looking forward to a lot of service from this camera. I would definitely purchase another unit identical to this one in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by k.g14 Its a good product
i bought this camera after my samsung dual view screen stopd workin after a week. i wasnt so sure about it at first bt now i know it was the right choice. This camera is lightweight and sleek. It doesnt have many buttons so its easy to figure out. I like that you can retouch the picture. The pictures come out perfect at night nd in the day. So i would recommend this camera to someone whos lookin for something simple.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kris This camera does not work well AT ALL in the night. If you take a picture in the dark it just shows up black. Or even if its the time of day where the sun is setting..it will just show up really dark where you cant see anything.

Problems with lense opening and closing right away. Problems with zooming right away. If I tried to zoom in all the way, the camera would shut off totally. Now I am sending it in for warranty work, that I hope Nikon will honor properly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KareBear This product works really well for like the little memories. I had problems with it blurring some action stuff like a sports event. For the card I have in it right now it is slow to record the image. So just having it for those before dance pictures its prefect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Muel Peterson good starter camera
This camera is... ok for what i try to do with it. I got this camera as a down grade from the D40, and i have enjoyed the simplicity of the camera. It is great because it is light weight and anybody can use it and get relatively good photos out of using the camera. I only have three problems with the camera, and those are: lack of control, you don't get to have a lot of control over your photos; no zoom, it is a basic point and shoot camera and thus it doesn't have very good zoom; and last of all, no viewfinder, i really prefer using a viewfinder vs. having to look through a LCD screen to take my pictures. But this camera does have 10 mp which is great, again it is a good beginners camera.
