I am a Nikon Coolpix – I am a Nikon S3300
For the more casual photographer the S3300 is certainly a compelling choice. With an attractive curvy design and a whole host of colour options (black, pink, green, silver, red, purple and blue) this nifty little camera is cropping up everywhere.
A lightweight option at around 130g, the S3300 is perfect to keep in your bag or pocket in case the opportune moment for a spot of photo snapping arises. This is an affordable camera; it retailed at £129.99 upon release in February but prices have dropped significantly since then and the S3300 is currently £99 at Jessops.com, so it won’t break the bank and it does feel stylish, despite the low price.
The S3300 also comes with an HD movie mode, a 6x zoom and a 2.7 inch LCD display screen – an impressive size for such a small camera. Sadly there is no touchscreen ability here but you will find a built-in flash and a creative retouching option.
If you’re feeling a bit on the fence about the Coolpix S3300 then this may help: Nikon have claimed that this model’s predecessor (the S3100) was the highest selling camera of 2011 and based on current trends, the S3300 has built itself a very good reputation indeed.
