I got this camera for my birthday and I absolutely love it! I would recommend it to anybody who is looking for a little and stylish camera that loves to take pictures!

Great price for a great camera. Does everything we need and more and it's easy to use. Would recommend the S3100 to anyone looking for a new camera that is full-featured and price friendly.

Love my camera. It took fantastic photos on our cruise. I used most of the features it has and was pleased. The only fault I had with this camera was a week or so after we got back from your cruise the little thing just burned itself up as I was downloading some photos. Sent it back and it was repaired.

Small Sized, Big Performer
Amazing results from a small-sized platform. Extremely easy to use as far as features to capture images. Allows a broad range of flexibility.
The only feature that causes a minor issue is that the cover for the image-transfer cable to be inserted into the camera is somewhat irritating. That is, the cover is quirky to get open and one has to be careful not to break the one and only pivot point for the cover.

Once I read all the instructions and took about
10 pictures and then called Nikon for some
additional help the satisfaction from Nikon Support and the Coolpix S3100 was outstanding.
The quality of the pictures versus the size of
the camera is amazing.

I have only had this camera a couple weeks, but the photos I have taken have been amazing! I love that the pictures don't lose quality after zooming in and they look even better when uploaded to the computer. Great product.

All in one!!!
Difícil escrever pouco desta compacta tão fascinante!!! Foram meses escolhendo no mercado qual seria a melhor, e não me arrependi... MELHOR CUSTO/BENEFÍCIO que já tive...
Em um primeiro momento, adaptei ela a mim da melhor forma (ex.: ISO eu uso baixo, no máximo 400, e megapixel em 3)... Mas convenhamos tanto no modo automático quanto no seletor de cenas, ela faz quase milagres, muito inteligente encontra o melhor foco...
Meu recurso favorito é a cena "animal", nunca foi tão fácil tirar fotos dos meus "amigos peludos" (cães), além de disparo automático com a detecção da face do animal, ainda permiti tirar contínuo pra não perder nenhum momento como "dar a patinha!"... rsrsrs
Consigo tirar fotos a distância sem perder a nitidez com um zoom de 5x...
Apesar de eu preferir fotos na luz do dia e sem flash, minha "amiguinha" S3100, fez eu mudar de opinião, com vários recursos noturnos e ainda um flash com um dos melhores alcances do mercado...
Proteja suas fotos favoritas e ainda salve elas na memória interna de 45 mb...
Enfim, dia ou noite,chuva ou sol, amanhecer ou entardecer, em qualquer momento minha Nikon registra bem!!!

Great camera, minus shutter lag (Read for shutter lag fix)
Its a fantastic camera that has loads of features including:
+720p HD video
Here's the shutter lag fix:
Go to "Set up" > Select "Display options" > And turn image preview to off. > (Optional) You can also turn the photo info off but this is optional.

Very Awesome Camera!
I had this camera for about 1/2 year but it was a very good camera. It takes excellent pictures and HD (720 pixel) video. I recommend it.

Good For the price, Nice look and easy to use and carry, Terrible close up focus battery is okay..
I bought this camera a day before my trip since i didn't have any digital camera and to be honest i was getting a good deal on it..! it takes good quality pictures indoor and outdoor for its price...... i would say overall it's good camera to have and easy to use,
easy to carry, light weight
battery life is good,
pictures quality is good,
terrible close up focus,
scene mode is just whatever
movie mode button is little bit tricky...
with all said, it's good camera for the price and it take excellent outdoor pictures specially on sunny day in parks, beach, city, etc..
i wouldn't recommend for people who sell stuff on internet since the close up is bad and it is hard to get a good shot,

super small and really good pictures
I use this camera every week am on the road alot and always fine cool things to take pictures, Have taken just over 10,000 pictures and it still takes a darn good picture!! the only problem is the fact that you are supposed to change the battery internally but I could never remember how long it is supposed to be on the computer before it is supposed to fully charged, they sell after market batteries and changers that take care of that problem.

This camera's just fine
I got this camera for Christmas and I've had it for almost 3 months now. It takes good pictures with flash, but it will sometimes take blurry pictures when you use no flash. The zoom is pretty useless because it has the same problem in taking blurry pictures, but be sure to overcome your anxiety because it can help give you a good chance to take better pictures. It's pretty hard to take pictures of things that are moving, such as pets, so you have to use your effort in trying to get a good shot of them. There's really no point in taking close up pictures because it turns out blurry or out of focus. If you're going to take pictures of something far away, you might have to change your ISO settings to a higher setting in order to make the picture easier to see and to avoid darkness. The videos turn out better than the videos I recorded from my Canon Powershot A495, but it's a little grainy, though.

Love, Love, Love the Coolpix!
This camera takes great pictures. It was a gift and I used it right away. Very easy to use. I love it!

Digitals are not snaps shot cameras
Most of you are having problems with poor picture quality. The this is with these digital point and shoot is that they are not instant focus. It can take one to two seconds for it to focus. You need to hold the shutter release down half way until it focuses and then press the rest of the way down. Your photos should come out much better. Learn your digitals!!!

Good quality, but complex
Taken only about 12 pix so far, and picture quality is good. Camera has too many options and features for a "simple" camera. Also, it seems I have to download pictures to the Nikon View and then upload to MyPicturetown, instead of to my camera's picture files (?)...and I really don't want to do that....maybe I don't have to? And then I cannot email direct from Nikon View in the computer unless I use Windows Live E-[mail, which I also don't want to use. Great camera, but you need to be up on technology. I printed out the 196-page manual, so I don't have to go back and forth on-screen with the on-screen manual.

Easy to Use.
I have a 5 yr old Coopix 8.1 and liked it, so when I went for a camera upgrade I decided to buy same brand. I use mostly for intenet sales and snapshots. I like the sleeker features and matte finish. It's a bit more user friendly too. I have more difficulty getting steady close ups of objects then my older Coolpix. I use mostly auto features and when it says a close up object is in focus it's not and I really have to monkey with it to get the picture I want. For everyday use however its a great little camera and would be great for someone not too camera savvy.

great cam !
I needed a cam to take pic's of my grandsons berth and the coolpix s3100 is my 1st cam... at age 52 and I have had a great time with it and got 100s of great pic's and videos (was sad to find out that in main they cost over 185$ and I see that every other state has then 80 & 90 $ less ) still luv the camera .

Decent camera, for the price
Love the filtlers...the selective color. That is the main reason for buying this one. It's a lot of fun...could be a little better with the picture quality...all Nikon' point and shoot cameras need better picture quality.

telephoto not good. too fuzy!!!
small and easy to carry, not expensive therefore it's not like using a better camera. a little disappointed in the telephoto aspect of it. I realize it's not a powerfull one.

Great Little camera
NIce. Lightweight. Very reliable & takes great pictures.

amazing camera for small size
Although I am charmed by the size
and features of this camera (my favorite
Is the ability to control the ISO), I am
infuriated by the lack of a full printed
Manual! My last Coolpix came with one.
Reading the manual on a computer screen
is difficult for most people over 40. Naviga-
Ting from p.8 to p.108 in PDF or for that
matter, any computer format, is much
More difficult than flipping to the paper
page. So please don't be so chintzy,
Nikon! I would be willing to pay if the
hard copy manual were offered as an
option. Meanwhile I am having some
trouble figuring out how to get to the
options I want. The older Coolpix (4100)
is much easier for me to use- perhaps
BECAUSE I HAD THE BENEFIT OF
A FULL PAPER MANUAL!

Good Cool Little Camera With Cool Features
Just bought it........its have all major feature needed on day to day use of camera but will look forward for good after sales service........
August 26, 2011
I am still learning how to use all the great features.. way different from my old fuji. It is a cool pix alright. I'll keep on learning.
August 23, 2011
the product is easy to use.
It is a very nice camera that takes sharp, clear pictures. However, after just six weeks the battery died and it will not recharge. This is very frustrating especially since I cannot get the photos of our vacation off the memory card and loaded onto the computer.
August 22, 2011
This product is the perfect size
Received my coolpix S3100 for my b'day and love it. It is easy to use, light weight and takes good pictures!

Too soon to tell but looks good
I've only had it two weeks so I cannot be as fair as if i had it longer. I examined it and went through all the features and it really is a loaded device. The things I like so far are it's weight, its HD capability and the ability to charge the battery using a computer. Also the many features and in camera photo editing. i was a little leary of the low star ratings in some reviews I saw. while i know sometimes you can take them with a grain of salt some are dead on though, I guess time will tell,

Over all I like it
I have read quite a few reviews on this camera on various sites and it appears either those that dislike it either are used to actual professional cameras and the picts are not up to those standards obviously, they cant be. or they are not knowing how to use it.
They claim the picts come out horribly,but mine come out pretty good for a $120 camera in my opinions.
As you can see in my unedited picts, my pup was moving as I took the picts and they came out clear.
The features are easy to navigate, the camera is very simple to use and I have zero complaints.
