Comments about Nikon Nikon CAMERA, COOLPIX S3000, PLUM, 12 MP:

I bought this camera for my 8 year old granddaughter (Christmas present) and she has taken thousands of pictures already. The pictures come out great and she has enjoyed exploring her interest in photography.

She is from India and was adopted just one year ago and has had a fascination for photography. She is enjoying this camera still and has taken some fantastic photos with it of family, friends, and toys (along with posing with herself and her toys)...

Comments about Nikon Nikon CAMERA, COOLPIX S3000, PLUM, 12 MP:

I bought this for a teenager - it could not be easier to use, it's small enough to fit in a pocket or a small purse, and it's a Nikon - great photos! She's a senior in high school, so this will go to prom, her senior trip, and her big west-coast trip after graduation. It's reliable and I have no doubts it will last her through college, too!

Comments about Nikon Nikon CAMERA, COOLPIX S3000, PLUM, 12 MP:

I bought this for myself and my daughter the L22 for Christmas. The image quality is great as well as the stabilization features. I have vision problems so the screen is great and the point and shoot is good although on auto it tends to overexpose indoors so you have to specifically ask for indoor mode but a great price and a really nice family camera

It came with everything necessary to use it immediately, the charger and the card included.[...] my purchase, which came in the same boxing as my first one, did not have a charger or card included.
