Excellent quality in a small package!
I bought this camera after returning a very subpar Polaroid digital camera and am just amazed at how high quality the photos are! My mom had a Nikon Coolpix camera several years ago and she was very pleased with hers so I decided to get a Nikon Coolpix as well based on that and the fact that the Walmart Photo Center also uses this model. If you want great quality photos, go with this camera! You WON'T be disappointed.

Great little pocket camera!
Picked up this camera to replace a S3500 model that I broke. This is an old friend format. Got the camera for having a "Pocket Camera" with me all the time. As a working professional photographer, I want a camera with me all the time, but I don't like to haul around the "Big Gun" everywhere. As a Crew member on a running steam locomotive, I want a camera that I can carry with me and get good pictures at a moments notice. The S3600 fills the bill. 20MP size, good enough for 16x20 prints, Light weight and size to cary in your pocket. And it's functions give me a wide range of choices to handle most anything I've come across. Good wide angle, and close-up ability. BTW the video is pretty darn good too. Came with Battery, Strap, Charger w/cord, Software, Instruction Book(printed) and a full Nikon warranty.
All said, Great little general use, everyday camera.

Just the right size for a pocket and great pictures
Unlike the review form Canada, my camera came with everything. Plus a CD to download my pictures to my laptop for editing.

Just got this a few days ago, used to own a Canon. Gave up on that brand for multiple reasons. This camera will take a little to get used to, but so far it is far superior. Crisp images, good video quality.
So far, I am very impressed with the quality.
Only beefs - video format is mov, would have preferred avi. When taking video in highest resolution you need a large capacity memory card if you want more than 8-10 minutes of video.
If you're looking for a decent point and shoot, this is a great one despite the above beefs. Once you get used to how it works (which even I am still doing) you will love it.
