The COOLPIX S3100 isn't just the most stylish and convenient camera you'll ever own, it's also the smartest. Consider our Smart Portrait System, which includes amazing advantages like our Smile Timer that automatically releases the shutter when your subject smiles, and Face-Priority AF, our latest face-finding technology that detects and focuses on up to 12 faces. Blink Warning tells you when a subject may have blinked—and alerts you to re-take the photo.

Tired of red eyes ruining your portraits? Our in-camera Red-Eye Fix™ automatically corrects for red-eye as you shoot. And our Skin Softening feature assures perfect facial studies by smoothing skin tones. And the COOLPIX S3100's rechargeable Li-ion battery lasts for approximately 220 still shots—so you'll have juice to shoot an entire party.

this camera is for you. This camera does have some great features, some of which I have not even had time to use yet. The main draw, however, (other than the size) is that it is simple and easy to use. There are tons of point and shoot cameras out there, and there is no use being snobby over which one you buy, because they all do pretty much the same thing. This one is great for the price. You could get a nicer camera, but for 90% of the people in the market for a digital camera, this will do what you need and want it to, and more.

I use mine mainly for snapshots and spontaneous pictures with friends and the like. However, I do enjoy photography, and I have experience with SLR cameras as well (and I own one). Therefore, I also sometimes take artistic shots. This camera does it all unless you are a professional photographer, in which case, you already know you need a different camera.

The size is perfect. This will even fit in small pockets on skinny jeans or whatever. The case I bought with the camera adds some bulk, but the camera is so slim, even the case fits in my pockets comfortably.

I use Amazon Student Prime, so shipping is never a hassle. I can't really comment on other shipping speeds. The package was simple, but the camera box protects the camera with styrofoam and cardboard, and the shipping box used inflated plastic bags to keep the camera box safe. Someone would really have to try to damage the camera to manage it.

Amazon lists plenty of features of this camera, but here is my list:

This camera pretty much rocks for its price. I bought this camera because I was in need of a camera update and the cell phone camera on my G2 wasn't cutting it.

When I took this think out of the box for the first time I was glad to notice that it's small and thin and fits nicely in my pocket. My old camera was much bulkier and I couldn't carry it in my pocket without a strange looking bulge in my pants that made me look like an idiot.

I am not a digital photographer so I bought this camera as more of a point-and-shoot camera. I wanted a camera that I could snap a quick picture that would have lots of details and look pretty nice without too much photo editing. Normally when I take a picture I am wanting a picture of my friends or myself at a certain event or next to a landmark etc... So I wanted a camera that would be simple but still take a sweet picture. I can't tell you how many times I've had people trying to snap a picture for me only to not be able to get my old camera to work right and the picture(s) turn out horribly. Like I want to load a fuzzy blur up onto my Facebook page.

That being said, this camera can also cause difficulties with the technologically retarded. This camera has to achieve a "focus" before it will snap a picture. Sometimes you can push down the button trying to take a picture and the "focus" will be off and it won't even snap a photo at all. For those special individuals, who for some reason are always snapping my photos, this can cause extreme problems with their abilities to be able get the camera to function.

Now you may be asking yourself why I would have rated the camera so high and said that it rocks and then ripping it a new one, but I just wanted to let you know the only problem that I have had with it so far.

I received my camera from Amazon this afternoon. The first shots that I took with it were blurry, just as some of the previous reviews that I read stated they would be. But then I told myself that Nikon has been making great cameras for many years, so if there was a problem here, it most likely was me, not the camera. The camera does not come with an owner's manual - just the quick start guide, and that does not give you any details about the various settings. The complete owner's manual is available on the Nikon site. Once I read the manual, and found out how to set up the camera so that image stabilization and auto focus worked as they should and other settings did not conflict, everything was great! If you purchase this camera thinking that it is a simple point and shoot camera, it isn't. But that does not mean that you cannot take great pictures once you understand the settings. Also, I should add that I am not a professional photographer - not even close - but I was able to set up this camera so that it takes great pictures. So if you too are an amateur photographer, don't be afraid to purchase this camera. I am giving this camera four stars instead of five only because I have not had it long enough to explore all the features.

I consider myself an average picture taker: trips, vacations, special events...I have been using this camera for about two months now and am very happy with it. It replaces an earlier Coolpix model that I was also happy with, but did not survive a drop on a concrete floor. It is simple to use, my pictures come out great and transfer easily to my computer for storage/sharing. My old camera required two AA batteries and they had to be changed frequently. This camera plugs in to charge the same as you would a cell phone. I charge it before a trip and it keeps the charge the entire time, a big savings for me. The zoom on this camera is greater than my old one which is a very noticeable bonus. It is also slim enough to slide into a pocket, another bonus, and hopefully a way to avoid another drop to a hard floor! I would definitely recommend this camera.
