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.

Hope this one will be better
I bought the model before this one and had some connectivity issues at first, but then it stopped. Thought it was my computer USB port. I used it only 7 mos and it quit connecting or charging alltogether. I bought it at Target and they couldn't scan it in their system since it was over 6 mos old and I had lost my receipt, so I couldn't send it back to Nikon. I searched again for cameras and thought I would try it again because it is a cheap camera that takes very good pics and videos along with easy to use. But...this time I bought the Target service plan real cheap and will keep all those papers in the box! It's not top of the line of course, but for someone that takes a lot of digital pictures and rarely prints them, it's OK.

fewer accessories supplied (no battery)
Unlike the S3500, this camera does NOT have the EN-EL19 Rechargeable Battery included. You have to pay extra for more and more parts.
