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!

I also had a Conan 35mm Eos. This camera is lightweight and you can put it in your pocket. I haven't used the case only for storage. It's great to bring on my walks.

I just bought this camera after five years of not having a point and shoot camera. I liked it because it looked similar to my 2005 Casio EXLIM 4 MP camera. I like how easy it is to use and it is very stable.

Great product for everyday use
At the outset this small camera is fantastic! I love taking pictures and grew tired of buying throw away cameras. This camera is everything I wanted as far as point and shoot. It takes fabulous pictures and is simple to use. It does not come with the memory card so be sure to order that as well.

Great Price, Great Photos, easy to use!
I have had this camera now for a week, and I will say, don't let the size fool you. This little camera is packed with features found in high end cameras. I wanted something small enough to fit in my pocket, yet good enough to take fair to good photos and videos. To my surprise the photos are better then expected and for the price you can't beat the quality.
If you don't want to spend a small fortune on a digital camera, think seriously about owning this one!

Baby Nikon joins my family
Having used the Nikon Coolpix L18 for years I felt lost when I couldn't use it any longer as the battery door latch broke. I wasn't upset as the camera served me very well. I always have a camera with me as I love taking photos for my volunteer work. Or just a photo of interest or safety, like the one uploaded here. A tree branch on a house where no one was home.
My Nikon D60 and D7000 are just too large to walk around with all the time. So I started checking what was available in a pocket size camera. I was amazed at the new features, more pixels and slim body of many of the new cameras. I checked out Canon, Fuji, Panasonic and Sony before I bought the Coolpix S3500.
The slip body fits in pockets, No sharp edges. 20 Mega Pixels and full Hi Def video at a VERY reasonable price, helped me pick it over the cameras I checked out. The only down side for me is the proprietary battery, as I was used to 2 Double AA batteries in my old Nikon Camera.
The Coolpix S3500 has a great zoom and photo quality that surprised me. Trust Nikon to surprise an old guy who's been shooting photos for 40 years!. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Having bought this camera online, I actually didn't handle it before purchase relying on the good Nikon name and TV advertising to help make my decision along with reading details online. It is so small compared to SLR film cameras that I used in the past. Nevertheless, it is so simple to use with the exception that the controls are quite small for my fat fingers but I am sure I will get used to it. It is a complete package with very useable editing software with the exception that a memory card is an additional purchase so internal memory is quite limited. I am pleased with this purchase just the same.

I recommend it to anyone ,who is not a professional of course. :)

Good point and shoot
It's a small camera and that's what my wife wanted. Fits in her purse and is lite weight. No need to run out and buy AA batteries any more. Charge time is pretty fast. Average pictures but this is a lower priced camera. If you need more then spend more. Time will tell if this was a good buy or not. So far we both are very happy with the camera.

It is a decent camera . I got it on sale. Draw backs are it can slip out of your hand easily because all the smooth edges. It does not work well in the cold. You have to wait when you turn it on to get the zoom to work and I don't know if thats normal,you could miss good shot because of this. Way too many choices from the scene menu ,I like auto, close ups , stabilizer and thats about it.

No es buena para fotografiar personas u objetos en "Movimiento"
La compré para tomar fotografías a mi bebé y no he podido lograr una buena fotografía aunque el movimiento de mi pequeño sea "mínimo".
Mi teléfono celular toma mejor las fotografías en ese ámbito.

Lasted 6 months
At first, I really liked this as a portable camera (I also own a D600) for quick shots or shots on the golf courses we play when traveling. Five months into using it, a spot appeared on the sensor and now each picture has a noticeable spot left of center. It was $90 and I don't have the receipt so it will cost $87 to fix. I am disappointed that this occurred so quickly after purchase. Yes, save every receipt but then again, I did register the product the day I bought it and NEVER expected a Nikon product to go bad so quickly. My Nikon D5000 is over 6 years old and has traveled to world with me with no issues. The D600 was my upgrade about the same time as the Coolpix and no issues with the all the travel and it has been on the exact same trips as the Coolpix. I guess you get what you pay for...

Mais ou menos
É uma câmera boa pro dia a dia, mas os vídeos em HD não são lá essa coisas, e também o pior: ela gera aberração cromática , você verá isso quando imprimir as fotos.

S3500 Never a Clear Shot
Bought for daughters class trip to DC. Tested it first right out of the box every picture taken were blurred. Unfortunately, she took for her class trip and no matter how much she tried to adjust and focus the subject in side the brackets the shot was never clear and crisp. Thank God within return window. It is going back as soon as she gets home from her trip. Price was right and size ideal and compact it came with a carrying case. To me the design was fine but the product did not take any clear photos. Not worth the aggravation. I forgot I had a similar issue for a camera that was bought for work. It was exchanged and then later stopped working all together. Will never buy a Nikon low end camera again. Will stick with other brands.

This camera, like the last one, didn't last 2 months. The lens sticks and won't scope out. It's very frustrating! The last one I bought to take on a European trip and the lens stopped working my first day there. This one worked for 2 months before it had the exact same problem! Needless to say, I will not purchase another one!

Poor quality product
Camera EXTREMELY POOR QUALITY. Pictures come out FUZZY, GRAINY and Blurry. As to customer service, NIkon's customer service Rep's very unhelpful. Would not recommend to anyone to purchase NIKON product. Customer service just as terrible as to WalMart Customer service.

Falta de peças e acessórios de reposição.
A máquina pode ser boa, o grande problema está com a reposição de peças e acessórios. Perdi o adaptador/carregador, e, além de não encontrar com facilidade o produto (precisei usar o 0800 da empresa e ainda duas vezes o "fale conosco" para que indicassem uma revenda, uma vez que a empresa não revende reposição, quando encontrei, verifiquei que custa a metade do preço da camera nova.
