Best camera I have ever owned I love the one click photo feature. It is so easy, and I do not have to tell everyone to wait 5 seconds in the same position until the picture loads onto the camera. It is wonderful! January 6, 2014
Great Family Camera Definitely one of the best digital cameras we've owned. The battery life is great and it charges quick. Very good picture quality. It's quick and easy to use and packed with useful options. I've owned some terrible cameras so this is refreshing, lol. Thumbs up! January 1, 2014
HIGH QUALITY PICTURES FOR EMAILING & PRINTING. CONVERTS YOUR PICTURES SO THEY ARE NOT TOO LARGE ON EMAILS. THE QUALITY OF THE PICTURE IS AMAZING. ONLY DOWNFALL IS THE LCD SCREEN IS VERY PIXELATED AFTER YOU TAKE THE PICTURE. IT'S HARD TO SEE IF YOU TOOK A QUALITY PICTURE UNLESS YOU ZOOM IN AFTERWARD. ALSO THE NIKON TRANSFER 2 PROGRAM DOES THE SAME. NON THE LESS, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CAMERA FOR THE PRICE AND QUALITY OF EMAIL AND PRINTED PICTURES. December 19, 2013
I have to love it.. its replacing my S3100 I worked the S3100 really hard over the past couple of years... some 27,000 + pics and videos. The S3500 has a lighter case but the same dependability. Loving the new lens features... looking forward to having a great time with it!!! November 5, 2013
Super and Compact Camera I really enjoy the ease of this camera. I purchased one for each of my preschool teachers and they both commented how easy to use they are and how great the pics turn out. My son and my daughter each have one, too. They purchased theirs and got me hooked on ease and portability. Thanks Nikon! October 2, 2013

Has anyone found an issue with their camera taking a very long time to process the [picture taken and then ready for the next shot? My previous Sony was very quick and this is frustrating having to wait so long to take the next shot.

Thanks.

Answer: 
Slow repsonse could be caused by several factors such as scene mode settings and memory card. Please check your settings and make sure that the approved memory card is being used.
