Nikon Coolpix S3500 Reviews

Photographyblog reviews the Nikon Coolpix S3500 and writes;
“The 7x optical zoom will be very useful to anyone wanting to take it on holiday and wanting to explore, not just wanting the typical pool and clubs photos. The quality of the lens is great for a camera at this price point, but the biggest surprise came in the ISO test.”

Ephotozine reviews the Nikon Coolpix S3500 and writes;
“If you’re looking for a cheap camera you can’t go far wrong with the Nikon Coolpix S3500, particularly as most budget cameras have at most 5x optical zoom, here you’ll find a 7x optical zoom lens for less than £90. It has a fairly limited set of features, but image quality isn’t too bad, particularly for sharing on Facebook etc.”
