    EXPEED digital imaging technology

    Nikon’s smarter approach to digital imaging technology. From image capture to processing, Nikon’s comprehensive EXPEED digital imaging concept encompasses the entire picture-taking operation. EXPEED is much more than a processing engine; it is a revolution in digital photography.

    Four advanced image stabilizing features* help ensure sharper results

    Nikon's Electronic VR image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake. Motion Detection automatically controls shutter speed and the ISO setting to compensate for subject movement as well as camera shake. ISO 3200 capability allows faster shutter speeds when shooting in low light or capturing fast-moving subjects. And, Nikon’s original BSS (Best Shot Selector) function automatically shoots a series of sequential frames and saves the one with the sharpest focus.

    * The camera selects and uses only the features required to optimize each image.

    Intelligent automation contributes to carefree shooting

    Nikon’s Scene Auto Selector eliminates the need to manually select a scene mode to match the shot, and this makes it faster and easier to capture the moment in beautiful fashion. The COOLPIX S3000 uses this intelligent function to analyze the subject and its surrounding settings and automatically selects the most appropriate of the following six scene modes to achieve optimal results — Portrait, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Close-up, or Backlight.

    Nikon’s exclusive Smart Portrait System

    Automatically detecting as many as 12 faces in the shot, Face-priority AF helps produce satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure. Smile Timer automatically releases the shutter when the priority subject smiles and offers the Blink Proof function, which automatically shoots two sequential frames and saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are open-wide. Now featuring faster processing speed, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.

    Subject Tracking

    Subject tracking automatically detects a human face and then continues to track and focus on that subject. Particularly useful when capturing children as they move naturally, Subject Tracking even functions if the subject moves out of the frame and returns within three seconds.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera (Plum):

I am going to use this Cool Pix for just something to throw in my pocket!....It takes okay snaps, but if you want professional pics (especially with Zoom) get & use a higher end camera. I will be sticking with my 9yr. old Sony Digital Still for that.
Found that the photos taken were not consistant; the zoom you loose details;too many "menus" to fuss around with.
On the plus size...it's small & lightweight

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera (Plum):

Excellent image quality, very easy to use, simple and compact. Layout of the camera controls is very good- fingers don't get in the way of shooting. Flash range is really limited ( as is most small cameras) make sure you do get a high quality memory card fot eh camera.

nikon the name is enough for this quality .lovely camera. easy to hold and shoot. Photos I have tried in the past have come out crisp and clear.
