No matter what the world might like to say about controls and all the jargon that comes with photography, there will be one huge section of the society for whom camera is all about being seen with friends. For them, there need to be cameras that are ultra slim, entry level, colourful and user friendly. One clear example of such a camera, coming from a name that can be trusted with one’s eyes closed, is the Coolpix S3000 from Nikon. This colourful compact entry level camera comes with a resolution of 12mp and wide angle 4x Zoom-Nikkor lens.

Design and Functioning

Slim cameras always have the advantage of being colourfully decked and coming in sizes that could pose a threat to a credit card. The Nikon Coolpix S3000 is no exception to this rule. Its slim form is as small as a credit card and it is available in colours like Cool Green, Azure Blue, Plum Mauve, Baby Pink, Champagne Gold, Bronze, Sunny Orange, Midnight Black and Metallic Silver. Its buttons are larger making it quick and easy to get the function you want and the zoom is in easy thumb reach at the top of the camera so you can concentrate on capturing the action. The Nikon Coolpix S3000 is only 19mm wide and weighs hardly 116gs. It provides an array of advanced shooting features, such as four anti-blur functions including electronic vibration reduction (eVR) to ensure clear pictures. It contains internal memory of 47MB and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
