From near to far

6x optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens

There’s a lot that happens in your life that shouldn’t be missed. Shoot with a 6x (26mm–156mm) optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens to capture close-ups, wide-angle and distance shots for both photos and movies. Shooting movies of the band without a tripod? Zoom in and out on each musician-S3300’s optical VR Image Stabilization system minimizes the effects of camera shake in both stills and movies.

Stylish, trim and easy to use

Maximum results, minimal fuss

Get super simple camera operation with the S3300 starting with minimal buttons and modes to fumble through. You’ll love the ultra-intuitive command and feature buttons and the easy-to-understand menu. And when it comes to size, this camera is thinner than 1 inch and weighs just 4.6 ounces to easily fit in your pocket or purse.

HD (720p) movies at the touch of a button

For every memorable moment, comes the S3300. Simply touch a button and start recording movies. Memorable moments are saved in high quality HD (720p) with sound. Show friends what you captured right away with the bright 2.7-inch LCD monitor, or play back your movies and photos on an HDTV, computer or upload to the Web.

Great camera for the price! I love the look, feel and operation of this camera. Small enough to carry around yet large enough screen to easily view. So easy to operate! LOVE it! April 16, 2013
Great Product! I love this camera, although its small size, it is packed with very easy to use fun and useful tools and settings. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone who wants a camera that does almost the same as a very high end camera but with a small compact design and amazing battery life. February 28, 2013
Little but mighty!!! I just got this the day after Christmas for a late present! I really enjoy the camera! The pictures are great and show up good. I would buy this camera again!!!! January 2, 2013
Camera-on-the-go Great purse camera. I am never without a digital video camera combo . Love the 80-3200 settings. Macro on this camera is great esp. in what I call the double macro setting in scenes. This is my second Coolpix Nikon camera December 28, 2012
Simply love it! It is so easy to use and the features are great for a camera at this price. I am a Marine Biology major at college and use it for all my labs. Great resolution and ease of use make it a great companion in my studies. December 28, 2012

Answer: 
I never changed mine, but with these newer Coolpix cameras I actually don't use autoflash that much. I set the ISO on 200 for outside and 400 for indoors. It seems to work out well.

Answer: 
This answer was speedy but useless!

Looking at tests posted on the web, the optimum ISO would appear to be 100 or 200.

I bought this camera to have in my pocket to take snapshots for the web. It is more than adequate for that purpose.

For serious photography I use Canon digitals and L series lenses.

Answer: 
Please reset the camera: MENU > SETUP > RESET ALL. Also, verify the settings that you have for Image Mode (seepage # 60 of the user's manual) and make sure you are using an approved memory card for the COOLPIX S3300 (see page # 19).

Cameras do not have dpi, they have pixels. Printers have dpi. The pixel count in a photo depends on it's size.

I really like the 720p quality for what I film. Only problem is its 8 minutes compared to 28 minutes on low quality. With a 32gb SDHC card I know I can film and refilm for many hours. I just want to know, is it possible to increase the HD time longer than 8 minutes and 11 seconds to about 30 minutes like the lowest setting?
