A niche camera

This camera is super easy to use. And the small size allows you to take it anywhere, even a shirt pocket, although don't drop it. With 14mpxl and the small sensor, you are not going to get great large pictures. Where this camera excels is in taking close-ups. I can take document close-ups or shots of close objects with great image quality. I shot a set of blue prints that are quite readable. This is the primary niche for this camera for me. I have many other cameras for the other things. And I must add this is a durable camera too. It might be good for kids or beginners, not because it's a toy, but because of ease of use and durability. Battery life is great. Extra batteries are cheap.Read full review...

Camera did not turn on or work

Did not work when we got it. Bought & installed a new battery and it is working so far. You would think that it would have been tested to see that everything was working properly before the camera was sold, when we got it it would not even turn on and the battery would not charge in the camera. Therefor, I cannot give a very good review.Read full review...

Nikon Coolpix S3100 Camera

Camera is perfect for those who need a small camera for occasional use. The camera will easily fit into a shirt pocket and weighs very little. Controls are easy to use and if you've had this kind of camera before, will be fairly intuitive. Note that the battery is rechargable and uses the same cable to charge as used for the transfer of pictures to computer. This is the second I have purchased from ebay as you can get used in good condition for around 35.00. Be sure if you buy to get the AC charger as the second camera I bought did not have this. If you have to buy the cable separately, there are a lot of folks selling the charge / picture transfer cable on ebay as well for about $5.00. I use this camera for taking pictures of items I sell on ebay.Read full review...

Very nice pocketable camera

The camera is very nice for what it is - good quality, easy picture-taking with a camera that can be easily tucked away in a small pocket or purse compartment. I use it for a 'second camera' when i don't want to carry my larger one. The only drawback for me is that it uses a dedicated lithium-ion battery which requires having a separate charger & cord and/or a spare battery handy. I honestly plan to replace it with a slightly larger model which uses AA batteries - which also results in a slightly beefier grip. But that's just a personal preference.Read full review...

Great little camera

small in size but big in quality.
Very solid construction and very easy to take high quality images.
carrying case is not cheap but nicely designed and functional.

Great camera!

This is a replacement for a camera that died, and we love it because it works so much better. It's small and ideal for travelling, especially for those of us who don't have a smart phone yet!

Nikon COOLPIX S3100 14.0 MP Digital Camera - Silver *free shipping!! Nikon COOLPIX S3100

I haven't had many digital cameras but I had one of these and liked it a lot. It took a dip in the Atlantic Ocean and the salt water ruined it. I'm happy to have another.

Not bad for $45 which is what I paid. Fits great in my pocket!

Camera is easy to use, takes great pictures outside and in bright light conditions. Video good as long as you use a tri-pod. 720p is not like 1080p resolution. I wouldn't call it high def, but it is watchable. Camera is OK in low light with flash as long as subject is not more than 4 ft. away.Read full review...


Easy for me to learn

I had a Coolpix S3100 and when I moved I could not find it. I take pictures of jewelry and this camera is just what I need. I wanted something I knew I could use. That is why I purchased the same one.
