    Use it as a traveling/pocket camera. Love the megapixels and the fact that you can get a nice size print from the file However due to a not so great ISO, the camera does not produce great quality photos in any shaded area. I would not recommend blowing up a print to full size if it wasn't taken with sufficient lighting... 8x10 and below should work out fine, due to megapixels. But other than the ISO setback, a really great camera; light, decent battery, more than one focus point... many pros. Would recommend.

    I bought this camera for my teen age daughter assuming it would be easy to use and she could grow into. The camera has scene options and you can change the iso settings, but that is about it. It is very slow to focus and record. The scene options do not work well.... I thought the "auto" function of the camera would be good for beginner, but most of shots taken with camera were only good in high light or if I messed with the settings prior to use. The flash is poor and frequently shots are missed even if the flash fires. The focus is poor many of the shots are grainy.

          It is a great camera for a teen--someone that is not taking pictures that often or need perfect quality. It is very small/compact and light weight. Seems sensitive or need to hold the button for a while to turn on and to zoom in/out.

                        For some time I'm using Nikon cameras, both SLR and pocket. Knowing the pros of the brand, I chose the Nikon S3300 for my trip, without having to carry my Nikon reflex camera. The S3300 is comfortable, lightweight, with an excellent lens, you can carry in your pocket as you walk around tourist areas. No need AA batteries, comes bundled with its own battery which is charged by USB. Really excellent pocket camera.

                                I love that this camera is small, easy to travel with and turns on and off fast to take quick shots when you're out and about. The battery lasts a long time too. Sometimes pictures are blurry but mostly very good.

                                I bought this camera a year ago and the lens got stuck and takes blurry photos. Camera totaled even though I took good care of it. The photo quality was never that good anyway. I am never buying a nikon camera again.

                                    I wanted a digital camera, it was on sale at a good price, and I love the color! I haven't had a chance to use it much, but what little I have used it I like it.

                                      This is a gift for my wife, who wants a simple, easy-to-use digital camera. I picked the S3300 because it features a good-size lcd screen, is small, and very easy to use. Oh, and it had to be red.

                                          I purchased four cameras as a gift for relatives and my family. It was a great experience to get rechargeable battery camera at such a low deal price. I got it for $ from B&H at the lowest price elsewhere. Its a best deal with 16MP, 6x zoom at such a low price. My family is happy with this gift.

                                              Comments about Coolpix S3300 Digital Camera (Black):

                                              I use the Coolpix S3300 as a backup camera for occasions where I choose to use a less expensive camera in chase of lose.

                                              The Nikon S3300 is a good camera providing good pictures and serves me well as a good spare, low cost alternative camera.

                                              The picture viewing screen isn't as good as a higher end camera but provides a clear view of the picture being taken or a picture previously taken.

                                                  Comments about Coolpix S3300 Digital Camera (Pink):

                                                  We have the coolpix silver and our granddaughter wanted the coolpix pink. On a ski trip to Montana was the first time we used the camera. Very clear, crisp pictures. The screen was very clear, even in the sun. All the pictures indoors and outdoors were awesome.
